Algorithm for generating a cubed spere

15 March 2011 - 02:17 PM

I'm getting lazy in my doddering old age. I'm looking for an algorithm for creating the cartesian coordinates for a cubed sphere with arbitrary linear subdivisions. My preferred language is C++. Google has not been my friend. Would anyone have any pointers to the best places to look for such a beast?

Ubuntu, a Linux distribution, is looking to add multitouch support to games. They're asking for people's help. If anyone's interested in details PM me.

How widespread is the use of GL 4.1?

27 October 2010 - 01:45 AM

I've been asked by a number of vendors about how widespread the use of OpenGL 4.1 is. I haven't a clue, but I figured I might know where to go to find out (ie. here).

The issue is being raised by various folks involved with modern computing platforms, in particular mobile and some consumer stuff that's in the pipes. Most of these devices support only OpenGL ES (and in particular OpenGL ES 2), and OpenGL 4,1 boasts compatibility at the API level with OpenGL ES. Any application, particularly games but also eyecandy, already written with OpenGL 4.1 should be portable with minimal effort to, um, portable devices that are coming on the market now.

So, does anybody here know how widespread the use of OpenGL 4.1 is? Does any one have suggestions on how to promote the use of OpenGL 4.1 (especially the ES compatibility stuff) over older versions?

Anyone going to UDS in Orlando?

I'll be attending the upcoming Ubuntu Developer Summit in Orlando, FL Oct 25-30 2010. Anyone else here going?

There are some significant tracks dedicated to game development on Linux (and Ubuntu in particular, which pretty much defines desktop and netbook Linux these days). If anyone is not going and not intending to participate remotely, give me a heads-up if there are any concerns you need addresses.
