Cooperative Multitasking system

19 January 2013 - 07:05 AM

Hi there

I'm trying to get around the concept of cooperative multitasking system and exactly how it works in a single threaded application.

My understanding is that this is a "form of multitasking in which multiple tasks execute by voluntarily ceding control to other tasks at programmer-defined points within each task."

So if you have a list of tasks and one task is executing, how do you determine to pass execution to another task? And when you give execution back to a previous task, how do resume from where you were previously?

I find this a bit confusing because I don't understand how this can be achieve without a multithreaded application.

Any advice would be very helpeful :)

Knowing position of object ahead of time

12 July 2012 - 06:31 AM

Hi all

In games Like FIFA or Pro Evo Soccer when the ball is in the air after being kicked, a small cross appears on the pitch marking the position where the ball will fall... How can you find out the position where the ball will fall ahead of time?

Any idea or explanation on how this could be done is very much appreciated Posted Image


Beginning tool development

30 October 2007 - 12:07 AM

Hi there I would like to get started in tools development, the problem is I have no idea where to start. I looked at this book called Game Engine Toolset Development but I'm not sure if it is the best place to help you build a tool from scratch. Any other suggestions? My goal would be to build a tool where you could visualize different water simulations with different LODs, etc. Thanks :)

Hi everyone First of all, sorry if this has been posted before. I would like to know from someone who had an internship, how did you actually get one? What steps did you take? Did you directly approach the developer? Did you get help from recruitment agencies or any other sites? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated :)
