"Free Fireworks" Flash Engine Launches

Today we are launching our SECOND in a series of free, configurable game/activity engines for the web (following closely on the heels of “Free Jigsaw“).  This one a further evolution of our “fireworks show” engine that can now be configured for almost any purpose.

You can watch fireworks launch, and/or launch your own with the mouse. Configure with your own music, background, flying image, colors, location, amount of fireworks, etc. Download and configure to your liking.

Free Fireworks Engine

The engines are written in Flash and can be configured using XML.   The engines are FREE and can be used for any application, as long as you do not remove our ads, preloaders, or links.  If you would like to use the engines without these limits, email us at info@8bitrocket.com for licensing information. Our FREE fireworks show engine.

A Free license is granted for use as long as the .swf is not altered in anyway, and all ads, preloaders, title graphics and links remain unaltered. Again, To further configure the engine or obtain the source code, contact us info@8bitrocket.com

Here are two other reskins of the same engine using different .mp3, .jpg, .pgn files and with a few simple tweaks of the configuration xml file.

Halloween Fireworks

The above skin sets the colors of the fireworks to an appropriate orange and purple for the occasion. It also increases the “glow” factor, and sets the fireworks to explode higher, to be near the moon.

University Fireworks

The above skin locks the interface so colors cannot be changed, but still allows users to launch their own with the mouse.

As you can see, using some simple graphic and XML tweaks, you can configure this engine to be for almost any occasion.

The XML (config.xml) file to configure the engine looks like this:

&lt;GAME_BACK&gt;background.jpg&lt;/GAME_BACK&gt; : Configure background image<br />&lt;BUTTON_PLAY&gt;b_play.jpg&lt;/BUTTON_PLAY&gt;<span class=style2>: Configure "Play" button image</span><br />&lt;SONG_LOOP&gt;1812edit.mp3&lt;/SONG_LOOP&gt; <span class=style2>: Looping soundtrack.
