I'm writing a multiplayer asteroids style game, demo at:http://www.cokeandcode.com/astroprime
I want to add shield, explosions, lasers and general effects. All of this things should really have that glowing style. Now I've seen Cas' Alien Flux, and that looks increadible. I realise thats done by using OpenGL and some sorta 3d stuff to get the style.
I'd rather stick to pure 2D but I'd like to get some similar effects. Has anyone got any tips on how to get the glowing style graphics and/or examples (with or without source).
Cheers for any feedback, help, heckling
