#4856057 Legalizing my Game

Posted by cstony on 31 August 2011 - 05:17 PM

I seriously got negged for that? Wow... someone needs to lighten up.

*preps for another neg on this post. weeeee*

OFF TOPIC How do you even give a neg vote now? I didn't think it was possible. I thought we adopted the 'like' culture.

ON TOPIC I'm not involved in your project and dont know the finer details. However, as an outsider, it feels like you are trying to screwing your colleagues over somewhat. It looks like you have outsourced the work you couldn't undertake yourself and now you want to reap the majority of the benefits and pass on as little as possible to the other contributers. I don't mean to sound like an ass but I think everyone should be fairly compensated. You don't mention any percentages so could I be completely off the mark but saying "I want to make sure that when I sell this game, all the profits will go to me, then I will pay my 'team' according to their effort" sounds like you will be taking the vast majority. I think you should show more respect to the rest of the team and hopefully you will work on more projects in the future :)

I must also add, congrats on taking a project this far though :)

#4831813 Performance with different compilers

How are you running your app? If from within the IDE make sure you use CTRL-F5 (start without debugging) as opposed to just F5 (Debug).

#4786974 Vector field for magnetic di-poles

Posted by cstony on 17 March 2011 - 06:50 AM

I'm confused to what you actually want. LIC is a visualization technique. Do you want to create a simulation that constructs the vector field? Or have you got already got the vector field data and want to perform LIC to visualize it? Or both?

Assuming you are talking about the visualization aspect, finding an off-the-shelf LIC implementation might be hard due to varying grid types and data formats for the vector field data. Here is a link to some LIC C code (it's not OpenGL though). It might still be useful for you to get a grasp of the idea.

LIC code

If this isn't helpful let me know and I will dig out my C++/OpenGL implementation of LIC for you. It's not a stand alone library but you can have the class source to see how I did it. It's also not the best implementation, as it was a quick hack, but the results looked good and it ran at a reasonable rate.

Does it have to be LIC? You could try something IBFV (theres some example code on there too), which gives similar results but should be faster.
