Bipolar was written from scraps of test code, in particular a fire routine based on a BASIC example given to T.M.R by Two9A on IRC and an unrolled plasma. Both effects are working simultaneously and the effect is refreshed once every third frame since everything happening at once means that each frame requires a lot of computation time.
Trivia: The original code took just four hours to write from existing source with a serious headache, but the hard work of properly unrolling the loops to optimise the effects down took significantly longer!
