There are 5 preset effects that can be toggled using the SPACEBAR.
1. Intense fire following the text contours with transparent blended text.
2. Raging fire following the text contours with transparent blended text.
3. Intense fire following the text contours.
4. Raging fire following the text contours.
5. Deep burning fire following the text contours.

Probably a waste of time, but...

1. This is not a demo, it includes the full source code as do all my downloads.
2. When I answered this post, for the better part of a week the Fire Effect script was free to download.
3. For 10+ years everything I've written in PureBasic was free to download; where was your interest then?
4. $20 CAD gives access to 10+ years of my PureBasic scripts and programs, including all future additions and updates.
