You made the toolbar artwork? :-)

I didn't know there where so many bones in the virtual human body.. And most of them are named "Untitled"

The with spherical feet seams to have palm trees for harms :-)

That's a cool and artistic way to model a humanoid with solids

So what happens if you run that program?


March 09, 2002, 06:51 PM

You made a program whose structure looks like a puppet? That's just... ehm... cool I guess. :)


March 09, 2002, 06:52 PM

Hmm it's 1:00AM here in the Netherlands, the sky is also dark, but I can't access your site. I'll try to get your artistic .cpp file again in the morning.


March 09, 2002, 07:16 PM

..and it's windy :/

Also, it looks like a 'zwarte piet' :)
(don't ask why, I just had to think of a zwarte piet by seeing your IOTD)

(don't ask what a 'zwarte piet' is, since he/she doesn't exist in non-Dutch countries, heck.. it doesn't even exist at all)

You'll see green smoke coming out of your system, your monitor will turn blue, and after a few seconds everything will fly out of the window.

Dance monkey dance!

I'm sorry for the access to the site. Its weekend and the server is down so a tech will only look at it monday. If you want you can complain to the departement of electrical engineering of Laval when the site will be up monday at I'm going to do...)

However, I have setup a temporary access to the file:

First you will need to download a public release of genu here:

then using the software, you can take a look at the file which is the result of the image above:

the project website on monday will be running again at

Again I'm really sorry ;-)


March 09, 2002, 08:58 PM

yes! It's my vision of programming;-)

the software is available at

see my other post for why the files arent accessible.

thank you,

It looks weird, but in fact it's cool ...

I see this person is heavily wounded ... with bone

He has (abviously) no problems with pens , because ... they grow for free

no more comments

Can no one else see that this is a heat-imaging picture of Edward Scissor-Hands after a serious joint & upper arm work out?!

Just a question: Someone know if there is a professional package based on skeleton modeling( then you could add some flesh for making the models organic)?

I know metaballs but its not as simple and fun as using Genu.

Nice work!

This is a brilliant use of the 16 colors palette, huge optimization must have been made. The concept is quite original too, "Untitled" man in a "No-content" world, this could make for a great game plot.

But what about lens flares? I think this would add a lot to the scene ;)


March 10, 2002, 04:12 AM

heck.. it doesn't even exist at all

Neeeee! Dat meen je niet! Zeg dat het niet waar is!!!!! :,(

ROFL. :)

But what about lens flares? I think this would add a lot to the scene ;)

Why is everyone modelling cameras instead of (human) eyes? :)

is this 'zwarte piet' something like the german 'Wolperdinger'?

I really like the concept of genu. The problem for me is that, from what I remember, is that it is unable to generate projects from existing source files. As long as that is impossible, it has no interest.


March 10, 2002, 06:09 AM

Well, I've never heard of a "Wolperdinger" either, so I just did a little GoogleSearch (


March 10, 2002, 06:11 AM

Sorry ;)


March 10, 2002, 06:20 AM

"then you could add some flesh for making the models organic"

You can do something like that with 3DS MAX + MetaReyes


March 10, 2002, 07:39 AM

I like the way excessive use of the word 'untitled' gives it a kind of retro-motion-blur look :o)

Aussi les francais dois utiliser l'englais pour les variables dans un programme C++. Que tu pense?

Sorry for the bad french.



March 10, 2002, 12:44 PM

You can use any names for variables in C++. French, Japanese, dutch.... everything is good.



March 10, 2002, 12:46 PM

Stay tuned something could be coming on this side "soon"...

("soon" means a few months for sure:-)


March 10, 2002, 01:23 PM

i'm pretty sure that kenji (japanese 'letters') are not ansi-c compatible (:
as well as all latin letters with ' or ^ aren't allowed


March 10, 2002, 01:29 PM

Ok I'm starting to get it now.

- cannot use tab in the content window
- rotate is well done once you dig how it works
- how about being able to activate a grid?
- cut/ paste should work with the mouse too
if you click and hold for a while it would cut
you can then move the object up and down the tree and paste

I'll think about how I could actually get work done with this. Maybe I'll post more feedback later.

BTW It was sunny the whole day.
