Love this app. Just a hacker at Java though -and after 50+ builds to test slowing down the Pop state (e.g. pop .png becomes a fortune it scrolls too fast to read. Kindly, how did/do you slow down the dying state? It made sense to me to tinker somewhere here : Pop_Item.java, line 23: private int life = (test higher values?); // milliseconds .. and... line 68 : (255 * (1 - (this.age / this.life)))); (increase value?). ...Cheers.
