This is going to be a short update. Alpha testing is now complete. I am currently working with AlphaBetaGamer to help provide beta testing for Farkle Friends. As soon as the game is up on their site I will create a new entry informing everyone of how to check it out. If there are issues and I can't get Farkle Friends on AlphaBetaGamer within a reasonable amount of time I will figure out another way to provide open beta testing for anyone who wants to help.

While the beta testing is going on I will be spending some of my time preparing the different store I want to use. Here is a finalized list of where I will be submitting the game to. Right now the goal is to release sometime in September. I'm pulling for the 1st but we will pin down a release date when beta testing is almost complete.

1. Google Play Store

2. Steam

3. GOG

4. itch.io

5. GameJolt

      Hi everyone, here's a fun one. I've been using DX11 for ages and I've never seen anything like this happen before.
      I found a bug in an application I'm developing when changing the resolution in full-screen mode. In order to handle arbitrary display mode changes (such as changes to MSAA settings), I destroy and recreate the swap chain whenever the display mode changes (rather than just using IDXGISwapChain::ResizeBuffers and IDXGISwapChain::ResizeTarget).
      On application startup, the device and initial swapchain are created via D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain. When the display mode changes, this initial swap chain is destroyed, and a new one is created using IDXGIFactory::CreateSwapChain, with a new DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC.
      What I've found is that, despite the new DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC being correct when supplied to IDXGIFactory::CreateSwapChain, if I then retrieve the desc from the resulting swap chain, it has values from the old one. For example, if the resolution is changed, the swap chain is created with new (correct) values for BufferDesc.Width and BufferDesc.Height, but this new swap chain contains the old values which the initial (now destroyed) swap chain desc had.
      Consequently the back buffer is the wrong size, which leads to obvious problems and errors.
      Has anyone encountered a similar situation, or can think of anything useful to investigate?
      Here's a simplified version of the code for the display mode change:
      m_pDeviceContext->ClearState(); m_pDeviceContext->OMSetRenderTargets(0, nullptr, nullptr); m_pSwapChain->Release(); m_pSwapChain = nullptr; IDXGIFactory *pFactory = nullptr; CheckResult(CreateDXGIFactory(__uuidof(IDXGIFactory), reinterpret_cast<void **>(&pFactory))); IDXGISwapChain *pSwapChain = nullptr; DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC swapChainDesc = CreateSwapChainDesc(...); // Returns populated DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC with correct values. CheckResult(pFactory->CreateSwapChain(impl.m_pDevice, &swapChainDesc, &pSwapChain)); DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC verifySwapChainDesc; ZeroMemory(&verifySwapChainDesc, sizeof(DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC)); pSwapChain->GetDesc(&verifySwapChainDesc); // swapChainDesc does not equal verifySwapChainDesc.

      Hi,
      We're currently looking to recruit a programmer to help us build out the remainder of our game, MATCHINO, for Android and iOS. Matchino is a match-3 game, utilizing elements of poker and casino gaming, in real life cities and towns throughout America. Our team is serious about putting out a polished, professional game. While we learn about the development process (it's been an eye-opener thus far), we also receive a portion of the profit share from in-game purchases and ads (using strategies designed to maximize revenue).
      Programming-wise we have the following set up: Facebook to accept player logins and store player save data, working game board mechanics, end-game process, startup screen, loading, menu UIs, and first 20 levels complete. We're gearing up to complete a demo for experience testing and for release within the next 2-3 months.
      We want to move on from this project to develop earth-shattering games, but we knew we needed to start small and gradually work up to that. Everything legal is in order, we're an LLC, we have a website/Facebook presence, contracts, etc. We just need some more help.
      If you're interested please PM or email me at sam.azzarano@emmersionstudios.com (or visit our website at www.emmersionstudios.com)
      Thank you!

      Tile remover is the mix of classic bubble shooter and falling down block puzzle. Try to remove
      all tiles from the playground. Colored tiles are falling down one by one in a round and you
      must place them how the same colors should be alongside. If you make a group of tiles [by at
      least 3 tiles] from same color then them will be removed. When you skip more than 1 or 2 rounds
      without making a group then a new line with tiles will appear of the bottom side of playground.
      Have fun!

      Guys, if I measure the width and height of each line in a gap buffer (lines are delineated by \n), what would be the formula for finding the X and Y coordinate of any given character in that gap buffer?
      Something like so:
      /// <summary> /// Returns the position of any given character in m_Text. /// </summary> /// <param name="CharacterIndex">The index of the character.</param> /// <returns>THe position of the character indexed by <paramref name="CharacterIndex"/></returns> private Vector2 CharaterPosition(int CharacterIndex) { }
