Some videoshow created with an early version of JWildfire.

Some previous Amiga projects:

Wildfire\7 PPC

award winning special effect program written in ANSI-C and C++


Dataworld was released at The Party 1995 in Fredericia/Denmark.

It finished second in the Wild Competition – a competition where no Hardware restrictions were given. With only 70 MB of (hard/cd) diskspace you got a 10 MINUTE-FULL-SCREEN-VIDEO-SHOW that just needed a standard A1200 with 4 MB of Fast Ram to run. Dataworld consisted of over 30 YAFA animations, all linked smoothly together using the Wildfire animation processor. With the YAFA player all the animations are played without interruption, even on a standard 4x CD rom.

The Youtube Video was simultaneously played back and recorded with WinUAE.


This was our contribution to the WiLD COMPETITION at The Party 96. I think it was not as successful as DATAWORLD because we used nearly the same techniques (and hardware) as we used one year before – and time just had passed. But it was much fun to make (and share) this video and i still do like some scenes very much :-).

    Hello Andreas. Your work is fantastic. I am currently creating a collection of musical compositions on Artificial Intelligence and was wondering if I could use one of your pieces as the main image / cover art. I would credit your work, of course and maybe we could collaborate to make a video for one of the pieces. I think the music I am working on and your fractal art would work great together. Get back to me when you can and thanks in advance!

      Hi Bryan,
      thanks for your feedback, and you are welcome to use the image. But please send me the link before (as some rare of them are already sold) and please let me know about the final product!

      Maybe I will create/participate in a new video this year, so I’m interested in your music, too!

      Lets keep in touch,
      Best regards,

      1. You need to install a Java-runtime (64 Bit) directly from the Oracle-website: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html
      2. Download the JWildfire-installer and run it: http://www.andreas-maschke.de/java/jwildfire-installer-2.40.jar

      Good luck!

      Understood, but what exactly is your problem? What did you try and what was the result? The software usually runs fine on Windows 7 (in fact it is even developed at Windows 7), so it must be a simple problem.
      Best regards,
