Font editor

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png It’s been a very long time since I’ve made an update here. I’ve been working steadily on the font editor module for the Gorgon editor and it’s finally nearing completion (the last 99% of 99% of 99% etc…).
I’m quite proud of this thing. It’s supports a pretty well rounded suite of functi...

Cameras

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png In the 2.x version of Gorgon I wanted to add cameras. It was most tedious before when you wanted to translate an entire scene by an arbitrary amount. So when I started this thing, I created an Orthographic camera object. The previous version of Gorgon used an Orthographic camera intern...

More the editor

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png Here’s a another screenshot of the editor. This time with the Font editor plug-in in action. Note that this is very very very incomplete and may not look like this when everything is said and done.

The editor

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png So I’ve been busy working on building the editor for creating the content for Gorgon. I know I posted a screenshot of a very old initial version of the editor way back:

Ugly.
Anyway, I totally scrapped that o...

DEATH TO D3DX!

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png FINALLY. I’VE FINALLY DONE IT! It took weeks of work, but I managed to exorcise D3DX from Gorgon. Behold my video playing an animated GIF using a 2D texture array:

I’ve provided extensive info after the jump thingy.
In case you’re wondering (and you know that you are), I used the D3D...

Boing!

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png Well, it’s been a while. I’ve been busy. You’ve been busy.
Anyway, I actually took some time to test out a piece of functionality for the new version of Gorgon. This new version of Gorgon will have a graphics API separate from the 2D renderer (the 2D renderer uses the graphics API howev...

Gorgon in text mode…

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png Yep. Console window actually. Exciting. Just a silly example program showing how to use some of the functionality from the common library.
You can go back to sleep now.

Text mode. Now you too can w...

Dual monitor stuff

http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sitelogo.png So here’s a screenshot of the dual monitor code in action:
http://tape-worm.net/wblog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/DualMonitor1-256x192.png
It’s not much to look at, but it was a major pain in the ass to get working, and does indeed work. Basically you create 2 forms, and 2 swap chains a...
