In Topic: Game Development Scene

Don't wait! I, for one, would love to follow the progress of someone who's just starting to get into game development. I started my blog very early on in my journey also and it's now very humbling for me to look back on my own archives every now and then and see how much I've learned. I also got so much feedback and assistance from random readers and friends, it's been extremely helpful.

 

I hope You would never stop. It is pleasure to see success of people who put a lot of effort and hard work to accomplish their targets

 

Czesc, sir. I'm also a beginner, brazilian, also decided to become a gamedev after getting my university graduation. And I'm setting up a blog. Showing your efforts, publishing them here, however paltry they might be, will get you feedback that might be crutial, like Drakonka mentioned, will give you friends to talk about this subject (not sure about your city over there, but 'round here I have absolutely no friends interested on this subject, not even strangers that I could get in personal contact with), and so forth. Like they say, one of the major pillars for building your dream path is forming a community around you, not only to help you technically but also to give you strength and courage when the unavoidable times of sadness and disbelief hit you in the face tongue.png

 

I totally agree with You. I have friends programmers ( greetings for You ), but they have chosen other paths of career ( business developers - like me before ). It is very important to stay in touch with people with same passion like Yours. I would love to follow Your progress. Good luck

In Topic: D3D11CreateDevice failed

08 March 2013 - 06:00 AM

Does Microsoft announced earlier that this kind of update would take place ? Or it was described only in update ?

 

In my opinion this is critical hit for game creativity ( Indie Games ) written on DirectX. That's really sad

In Topic: stencil not working when rendering intances

08 March 2013 - 05:18 AM

I'm trying to understand Your situation.

 

I suppose that Your DepthStencilBuffer is enabled, his test is LESS THAN (standard one), and it MASK_ALL - so You make standard depth stencil test. Am I right ?

 

Could You explain am I right:

 

The stencil test passes if EQUAL, OMSetDepthStencilState() sets to 1 and ClearDepthStencilView() sets the other to 0,

 

So You want to set Stencil buffer to 1 there where You draw Your Instance ?

 

But then You wrote:

 

if the stencil test passes or fails the stencil value is incremented

 

So I see here two different things: Do You set it to 1, or increment in every iteration ?

In Topic: Staying motivated.

08 March 2013 - 12:50 AM

When I have a lot of energy and passion because of learning, programming and creating my own projects - I can spend many many hours each day. Unfortunately we are only humans, and the day, when our body would say "I need a break" and "I don't want to do it, please, do something else" would come. It is signal which we can't ignore - it says, that something is terribly wrong.

 

I believe that our motivation is resultant of our healthy lifestyle, clear vision of our targets, making small ( remember SMALL, but well-judged ) steps every day. There is one more in our passion - the most difficult to accomplish: look out for overwhelming problems. However there is a lot of unpleasure stuff we have to learn/make. I believe that key to success is good plan for those steps - split it to small problems, and for each give You some time and space.
