Daedalus Development > Unit Testing a renderer

Posted 16 January 2009

I've always been interested in Unit Testing and Test Driven Development. Unfortunately, I've never had the chance to apply this to any of my professional projects. So I decided to try it out at home. Since my interests lie with graphical programming, and general software architecture, I've decided to apply Unit Testing and to a lesser degree Test Driven...


Daedalus Development > OpenGL 3.0

Posted 23 October 2008

I recently got a laptop with a videocard capable of OpenGL 3.0 so I wanted to quickly test it. I found out that there aren't many test programs on the net, so I made one myself. It mainly tests GLSL 1.30, with geometry shaders. Nothing fancy, but if it runs, then it means OpenGL 3.0 is basically working.

Daedalus Development > Awesome app idea

Posted 27 July 2006

I've been quite busy lately, working on a variety of things, except what I should really be working on: 4e5 [grin]

1. Since my 4e5 game will be slightly fantasy based, and I'm going for a graphical style similar to Warcraft3, I figured I'd just write a loader for Warcraft3 models to use as temp art. So said, so started. Unfortunately, the...


Daedalus Development > 4e5 #1

Posted 17 June 2006

Last time around I focused on graphics very early on during the contest because I wanted to create levels for a platformer using the Q3 map format. I also spent a lot of time implemented (faulty) collision response. And so never finished, or even got started on the game.

This year, I'm going to do it the other way around. I'm making a...
