Screencast makes it easy to produce high-quality screencasts on Linux with support for JACK Audio and updates in full detail. It is indispensable for recording video tutorials, video logs, and other computer activity, and works especially well with audio applications such as Pd, Ardour, and chuck. It is multi-threaded and produces smooth results with no jittery sound or loss of fine detail in screen updates.
Load Tester is a Web stress tool that measures how many users your site can handle. It allows you to generate up to a million virtual users from the Amazon cloud to test the entire application stack. The automated record and configuration process means no complicated hand-coding and no scripting languages to learn. Configuring user input such as login credentials, search terms, and other user-entered fields is as easy as clicking on the field. The user capacity analysis clearly measures your site's capacity based on either simple performance goals or complicated Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Load Tester automatically configures sophisticated logic to detect application and logic errors. When an error does happen, not only is the page captured, but you get a visual comparison showing not only the rendered page, but the HTML that triggered the error. The software comes in a free LITE version as well as a commercial PRO version.
comedirecord is an oscilloscope program to record data from a COMEDI-compatible device. Its philosophy is to save the data in its original unfiltered form but allow comfortable viewing of the data during an experiment. One can acquire data from multiple DAQ boards simultaneously, and also append data via an incoming TCP port, which could be a telnet connection into comedirecord or data from another program. An IIR notch filter has been implemented to filter out unwanted mains noise (50 or 60Hz), which is useful especially for medical applications (EEG, ECG, EMG, etc). A DC filter can be switched on, which is useful when observing small voltage changes at a high gain (for example, measuring small temperature changes). The output format is ASCII and HDF5, so the data can be imported into GNUPLOT, scilab, or octave.
Arx Libertatis is a cross-platform, open source port of Arx Fatalis, a 2002 first-person role-playing game developed by Arkane Studios. Arx Fatalis features crafting, melee and ranged combat, and a unique casting system where the player draws runes in real time to effect the desired spell. The Arx Libertatis source code is based on the publicly released Arx Fatalis sources. This does however not include the game data, so you need to obtain a copy of the original Arx Fatalis or its demo.
The aim of this project is to create a free (open source, OS independent) remake of the classic SSI game Imperialism. While the spirit and many concepts of the original should be preserved, it should not become a pure copy but advance the concept in a sense that modern elements of strategic games are included, e.g. of the Civilization series. The game is written in Java using Swing for the user interface. The philosophy is to keep it as simple as possible, use standard/well tested libraries wherever possible and to demand clean, understandable code.
BNNS is a research tool for interactive training of artificial neural networks based on the Response Function Plots visualization method. It enables users to simulate, visualize, and interact in the learning process of a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) on tasks that have a 2D character. Tasks include the famous two-spirals task or classification of satellite image data.
comedi2py feeds data from a data acquisition board into Python by using call-back functions. The goal was to make this as easy as possible, hiding all the complexity of the asynchronous acquisition in comedi2py and providing the Python program simply with an array of the sampled data at a given sampling rate. The program has been tested with the USB-DUX boards, but should also run with any other COMEDI supported data acquisition board.
Speed Dreams is a fork of the open racing car simulator Torcs. It aims at implementing exciting new features, cars, tracks, and AI opponents to make a more enjoyable game for the player, and at constantly improving visual and physics realism. Featuring 44 cars, 44 tracks, and three first-class AI opponents, Speed Dreams is suitable for use as a racing game, as a serious race simulator, and for scientific research.
Netzob supports the expert in reverse engineering, evaluation, and simulation of communication protocols. Its main goals are to help security evaluators to assess the robustness of proprietary or unknown protocol implementations, simulate realistic communications to test third-party products (IDS, firewalls, etc.), and create an Open Source implementation of a proprietary or unknown protocol. Netzob provides a semi-automatic inferring process, and includes everything necessary to passively learn the vocabulary of a protocol and actively infer its grammar. The learnt protocol can afterward be simulated. Netzob handles text protocols (like HTTP and IRC), fixed field protocols (like IP and TCP), and variable field protocols (like ASN.1-based formats).
AeonWave-OpenAL is a thin OpenAL emulation layer that uses AeonWave to create one of the fastest rendering OpenAL implementations available. OpenAL is a cross-platform 3D audio API appropriate for use with gaming applications and many other types of audio applications. Its API style and conventions deliberately resemble those of OpenGL.
