Java Applets Coding Contest Archives – A tribute to CFXweb
A few years ago I used to hang out at cfxweb.net
CFXweb is closed now, but when it started (2002) it was quite a popular site among demo sceners and amateur game developers – counting thousands of members and hosting graphics, 3D and AI related news and technical articles.
I still remembet when its creator, Civax, announced the 1st Java Applets Coding Contest… its theme was Image Distortion and more than 20 participants had sent their entries… I placed 10th with this bizzare entry … (don’t know what i was thinking of!) You can check out the rest of the entries here – many of which are still awesome.
I did better at the 7th contest, themed Particles. My entry “Gimme Pop” placed 2nd, but make sure you also check out the rest of them.
Anyway, I always get a smile on my face when i think back about that period (2000-2003) of my internet life. The previous one was a lot more darker… perhaps i’ll explain more in next posts!
