help for creating a 3D landscape like this one (OpenGL+Java)

07 December 2012 - 04:15 PM

Hi,
I'm an average Java coder, and now I want to learn OpenGL (in Java) to make a landscape like the one shown in the picture below (it's a Linux screensaver).

Actually, the color stuff is not what I'm interested in: what I would like to achieve is just the wireframe view of such a landscape (pretty basic thing in OpenGL, I imagine...)

So Big, Big, Big Thank You for providing me any piece of advice (or code) you have about what I should do in order to create a wireframe landscape!!!!!!!

PS: if your tips, lines of code or weblinks deal with C/C++/C#, no problem, I'll figure out how to make it work in Java, so feel free to post any piece of help (because I'm really starting from scratch on this one, and I really want to code it!). Thank you very much!

books to go further in C/C++/Java

29 November 2012 - 04:06 PM

Hi,

I'm an average coder in C/C++/Java, and I would like to improve my coding skills and learn new things.

So do you know good books (or web links?) for C/C++/Java that teach really more than the basic scholar stuff, and instead venture into deeper and efficient coding techniques (code optimizations and tricks, and stuff like that) ?

Thanks!

how to code ThunderForce III's sinusoidal deformation?

10 December 2011 - 06:11 AM

Hi guys,

old-school gamers may remember Technosoft's ThunderForce III/Thunder Spirits (shoot'em up): actually, I would be interested in coding a shoot'em up which could include a sinusoidal deformation applied on a background texture (as seen in the fire level => please, see this picture: sinusoidal deformation in the background ).

To code this graphic effect, do you have any hint or piece of info to share ? (or some math tricks?) :)

Thank you very much for your help!!!

PS: depending on your answers, I would use Java or C# or C++/SDL to code my game.

how to code Axelay's scrolling?

10 December 2011 - 06:04 AM

Hi guys,

SNES gamers may remember Konami's Axelay (shoot'em up): actually, I would be interested in coding a shoot'em up which could include Axelay's scrolling effect (as seen as in the very 1st level the game).

To code this graphic effect, do you have any hint or piece of info to share ? (or some math tricks?) :)

Thank you very much for your help!!!

PS: depending on your answers, I would use Java or C# or C++/SDL to code my game.

a new free cool puzzle game by me (online ranking! + play from your Internet browse...

15 June 2011 - 12:28 PM

Hi,

I coded a free online game, and it's now available Posted Image

It's a "Columns"-like game (if you don't know Columns, it's a puzzle game from Sega, back in the 90s).

Here's the official link:
http://www.lesjeuxlesplusmieux.com/
(it's a french name with a deliberate (fun) syntax error, which could be translated like this "www.theverymostbestgames.com").

On the website, few links are not active yet, but the most useful ones are!


=====================================


Actually, the game is a puzzle game, and here are the rules (the webpage with the rules isn't on the website yet... I'll quickly add this page Posted Image ):

- 1) you have to align 3 (or more) blocks with the same color or the same number. Aligned blox are removed from the game. Easy!

- 2) each removed block gives you points (on your screen, see the "Points per Blox" info, near your score).

At the beginning of the game, the "Points per Blox" data always starts at "100pts per removed block".
In order to make these points go higher, you have to remove ALL! the blox above the horizontal white line (see the game area).

Each time you clear what's above this line, 1)you gain 7 seconds of playtime, 2)you gain 5 new blocks to play with, and 3)you add 100 points to the "Points per Blox" data!!! (and, for the challenging part, the game adds 2 new lines of blox to be removed Posted Image )

The secret of making high scores in this game? Just quickly remove all the blox above the horizontal line!!! That's it! Easy! Posted Image


=====================================

And you want to know the best part?

There's an online leaderboard!!!! Posted Image

You can try the game as a guest, and if the game entertains you, then you can register your username (quick & free process!) in order to save your stats, and show your scores to all the other players on Earth!!!

Who will be the best in the world? I think a pretty cool challenge awaits you!!! So feel free to play! (a game just lasts few minutes! So if you have 5mn of spare time, you know what to do... Try the game Posted Image By default, your scores will be saved under the "Guest" username)

To play the game, you only need a browser with Java installed.
You play with the mouse only, and use the spacebar to pause the game.

On the website, you can consult all the statistics of the game, and the stats for all the players (and there are also achievements to win, like the games on xbox360 or PS3 Posted Image ). Cool stuff!

So, feel free to play (once again, it's free, games are quick, and you're logged as "Guest" by default), and also feel free to tell your friends about the game, because the more challengers there are, the best the game is! Posted Image

Good luck, enjoy the game, and have fun !
