well i'm just wondering on the best way to go about create some form of "Lightning" effect to be used in a game, so for example:
-In my game, i would like to have this effect in the menus and in-game in some form of random weather system perhaps.
Just wondering on the methods available? I did read this blog post: http://drilian.com/2009/02/25/lightning-bolts/
And took a-look at the Lightning sample thats around. I like the method placed in the blog post, just really a bit unsure on how to create the vertices from the lightning segments. I would be great if someone could explain that seconded sub-heading (Adding glow) a bit more to me :).
But like i said, i'm really want to know if there's any other ways i could accomplish this?
