Audacity also has a built-in amplitude envelope editor, a customisable spectrogram mode and a frequency analysis window for audio analysis applications. Built-in effects include Bass Boost, Wahwah, and Noise Removal. This full-featured program is fast and stable, and is also available for Linux and MacOS X.


Mini Games

Crack Attack! Crack Attack! is based on the Super Nintendo classic Tetris Attack.  Used in single player mode, you simply try to get the best possible score, but you can also play against other players, either at a computer nearby or over the internet.  The use of the OpenGL library makes for some impressive, though  simple, graphics.

Sokoban YASC Sokoban YASC (Yet Another Sokoban Clone) is a maddeningly simple game first conceived of by the Japanese programmer Hiroyuki Imabayashi. The object of the game is to put all of the crates in your "warehouse" into the designated storage areas. This sounds easy enough, but there are some restrictions: You are not allowed to pull crates, only push. You can only push one box at a time, and you cannot pass through a box or a wall. These restrictions turn a seemingly simple task into a delightfully difficult challenge!



LGames LBreakout is a breakout-style arcade game in the manner of Arkanoid. Use your paddle to aim a ball at bricks until all bricks are destroyed. It offers you a challenge in more than 50 levels with loads of new bonuses (goldshower, joker, explosive balls, bonus magnet ...), maluses (chaos, darkness, weak balls, malus magnet ...) and special bricks (growing bricks, explosive bricks, regenerative bricks ...). If you are hungry for more you can create your own level sets with the integrated level editor. There is also a new two player mode (via LAN) available. I am pleased to say that this game won the No Starch Press SDL Game Contest.
Why LGames ? It stands for Linux Games, because it was originally developed for Linux, but later was ported over to Windows, so more people can enjoy it.


Tux Racer

Celestia is a simulation of the known universe, based on current astronomical information. It includes beautifully rendered planets, moons, and some smaller orbital bodies such as International Space Station. Celestia is not limited to our solar system; you can visit other stars, or even travel outside the galaxy, and you will find models of extra-solar planets in orbit around remote stars. You have complete control over time and space, so you can view the stars from your chosen location and epoch.
    This program is highly recommended for use in high school presentations, which can be set up to run through a pre-programmed sequence. To get a good idea of Celestia's full capabilities, start the program and press D for Demo. Celestia requires an OpenGL-capable graphics card (which nearly all modern systems have), and is available for Windows, Linux, and MacOS X.


Really Slick Screensavers

As the name suggests, Really Slick Screensavers is a collection of attractive screen savers. They are built using the OpenGL graphics library, which results in an impressive display on your screen, but also requires fairly up to date hardware (we recommend a graphics card with OpenGL support and 16 MB of graphics RAM). If you are in doubt you can always try, as the screen savers are easy to un-install (as is every program on this CD).
    This wonderful set of screen savers was created by Terry Welsh of Sunnyvale, California in his free time. After being contacted by Will Martin of TheOpenCD (predecessor of Qumble), he agreed to release them under a free software license (the GPL), which was required to meet the criteria for inclusion on our disc. As it happens, others were just waiting for this to happen, so they could continue its development and will hopefully now take it to new heights! This is a great example of Open Source dynamics at work, and a demonstration how *you* could affect the direction of other projects in our community.
