FireDots is a fireworks display by Ed T. Toton III. Though packaged as shareware, Ed has informed me he considers this and his other early software to be freeware now.
FireDots is a fireworks VGA screen-saver. In it you will see splitting shots, shots with multiple "warheads", and even duds! It also has that type of firework that simply makes a loud, small white burst (although the sound effects aren't simulated here), and I have even given the sparks have a "sparkling" effect as they fall.
Ed T. Toton III also produced Blaze and Vortex.
Firedots (Windows DOSBox edition):
The MS-DOS v1.3 with an modified config compatible with Windows via DOSBox.
I'm still looking into emulation options for Windows, such as ReactOS, to provide more complete coverage.
Firedots (v1.4) (v1.3):
MS-DOS / Windows 3.x Firedots, v1.4 just seems to be v1.3 with an alternate config file.
