Does anyone know of a good tutorial or info on programming some awesome looking "fire" effects in a game?

Right now I'm some simple sprites for various burning fires, or stages of fire, etc, but I've seen some games where the fire is much more random and interesting - it appears hot and it burns.

My game badly needs something like this I think, any advice?

Take a look at Timeline FX.
Pics here:
Library: Fire and Smoke

It's sprite based although, until Pete, hopefully, will
port his module to monkey.

Thanks, that might just do the trick.

This might be worth a look as well. Cheaper but possibly not as extensive and mac only:

ive used the fire effect from timelinefx in my game towers in enferno.just select the tower costing 400 and click anywhere in the game area and you can see it working.I would highly recommend timelinefx.
