Fabian “ryg” Giesen (@rygorous), one of the coders of the legendary demoscene group farbrausch, has open-sourced on GitHub a repository with some of the group’s work from 2001 to 2011.
There is a lot to discover in that repository. Its hundreds of C++, C and assembly files contain the source code of many of the tools that the group has been using internally during the last decade:
On top of that, there’s also the data files for some of farbrausch’s award-winning productions, including:
All in all, the public farbrausch repository is a masterclass on computer graphics and procedural content generation, and a living piece of history on the demoscene.
Unfortunately, not all of the code on the repository compiles out of the box. Most of it is out of date, but there’s an on-going effort under the vs2010 branch to cleanup and update the different projects so they build cleanly on Visual Studio 2010. I’m sure pull requests to help with this task will be appreciated.
If you’re having trouble finding your way around the code, @rygorous’ ongoing series of blog posts are a great starting point.
