Week of Awesome V: Day 6: The Tower of Chains

Thaumaturge

900 views

Greetings and salutations!

This is, for me, the final day of the jam; thus, what I've completed today is intended to be my final submission...

First, once again, a screenshot showing some of that final submission:

So, what does that submission include?

First of all, I'm not terribly happy with what I achieved this year. While I like at least some of it, and rather like the concept, what I managed to do by the end didn't match up to what I'd hoped to make. In particular, the level is brief, has no true end, and isn't terribly interesting to look at, while the gameplay wants for some serious tuning.

Still, I do rather like the "chain" mechanic; having the various chunks of the level rearrange under the influence of the chains is something that I find neat, and interesting.

As for what, precisely, I got done today, let's see--off the top of my head:
 - A custom cursor for the menus
 - Player death, a new popup menu that appears on death, and the option to restart the game should one die
 - Cheat codes ("i" toggles invincibility, while "m" gives the player the two collectible weapons)
 - An on-screen player-character hand (begun yesterday, as I recall)
 - Adjustments to the player-spell casting effects
 - Sound effects
 - A quick-and-dirty level
 - Various tweaks and bug-fixes

(I may well be forgetting something.)

So that's it! Whether my entry is judged good or not, I very much enjoyed the jam--it's a little gruelling, as I run it, but thoroughly enjoyable. ^_^

That's all for today--stay well, and thank you for reading! ^_^

      Hi,

      I wish to generate light map textures for objects in my scene containing ambient occlusion and global illumination.

      Currently I can do this in 3D Max, but it is taking too long on my single computer for this to be feasible. 

      Does anyone know any rendering farms that supports this (light baking)? I checked "Rebusfarm" and they did not support this feature.

      Any help appreciated,
      Doggolainen

      Tired of working on games that never get released? Then you're at the right place!
      Game Description
      Titanforged Entertainment is currently working on a 3D multiplayer game containing several board games. The environment of the game is something of an RPG tavern/potion/scroll shop and the game style is stylized with hand-painted texturing. You can think of the art style as in World of Warcraft or Fortnite or Warcraft 3, just to make it more clear. The environment is ONLY used for the looks. Meaning, the environment is only there as a lobby screen & waiting area. There will be a cinematic screen in the tavern and we will make it feel cozy and nice when people are in the menu's and waiting for a game. At the bottom of this post, you can see some screenshots from the game at its current state. Note that the screenshots are taken from the 3D software and are still not sculpted or textured which is why they look simple and plain. They will look more detailed at a later stage in development.
      The game contains multiple board (and card) games where people play against each other in for example Chess, Ludo, Snakes & Ladders, Uno, Poker, Scrabble, Drawing/Guessing and more. The boards we are developing will also be in full 3D. For example, Chess would have a castle/monastery environment with the pieces designed as character pieces. In this game you can play to gain ranks and medals. You earn coins from playing, which you can use to buy skins and different pieces in the coin shop. There are more features in the game but these are just some of them.
       
      Programmer Needed
      Titanforged is looking for a highly motivated and talented Programmer. You will be provided all the assets from the artists and it is your responsibility to bring life to the game. If you’re up to the challenge, we want to hear from you!
      Description:
      - We do not require a specific programming language. It is up to you, as long as everything is written nicely and the game is working as it's supposed to.
      - You should be able to program the game as a solo project. We only try to recruit members if necessary.
      - You need to have a passion for board games.
      - You are someone who finishes projects. Please do not apply if you have a hard time finishing a game. This will at least take 3-5 months before release.
      - You are confident when it comes to Networking and Multiplayer programming. The game will be released on Steam.
      - You should know how to build good security for the game to avoid cheating and 3rd party software.
      - You are able to spend at least 15 hours a week on the project. If you can spend more, that's great. Currently we are spending 35 hours a week on the art.
      - You are 18+ years old (Legal contract reasons)
       
      Big plusses (NOT REQUIRED):
      - You have previously released a game before.
      - You have a degree in your field.
      Notice that if you don't have a solid portfolio, you will be tested by creating a chess game. We will provide you the board, pieces and textures. You will "only" have to write the code. There is no AI / singleplayer programming.
       
      Payment
      The payment for the project is revenue share. This will be our first game to release on Steam and therefore we are currently all working for free. When the game is released on Steam, payment will be divided between each member as promised in the contract you will sign before working on the game.
      Your revenue share for the project will be 35% and is not negotiable. We predict high income for this game when it is released on Steam. A lot of the money will be saved in Titanforged Entertainment so that we can create a better next-game and afford anything we need. Our goal is to progress such that we can do this full time and pay our members monthly.
       
      Contact Information
      If you're interested in joining us for this project and hopefully for the future projects, you can add me on discord Nafei#9413 or write an email to Nafei@titanforged.net

      I'm trying to offset the depth value of all pixels written by a HLSL pixel shader, by a constant view-space value (it's used in fighting games like Guilty gear and Street Fighter V to simulate 2d layering effects. I wish to do something similar). The projection matrix is generated in sharpdx using a standard perspective projection matrix (PerspectiveFOVLH, which makes a matrix similar to the one described at the bottom there).
      My pixel shader looks like this
      struct PSoutput { float4 color: SV_TARGET; float depth: SV_DEPTH; }; PSoutput PShaderNormalDepth(VOutColorNormalView input) { PSoutput output; output.color = BlinnPhong(input.color, input.normal, input.viewDirection); output.depth = input.position.z; //input.position's just the standard SV_POSITION return output; } This one gives me the exact same results as before I included depth output. Given a view space offset value passed in a constant shader, how do I compute the correct offset to apply from there?
      EDIT: I've been stuck on this for weeks, but of course a bit after I post it I figure it out, after reading this.
      So, with a standard projection in clip space position.z really contains D = a * (1/z)+b where b and a are elements 33 and 43 of the projection matrix and z is view space depth. This means the view space depth can be computed with z = a/(D-b).
      So to add a given view space depth offset in the pixel shader, you do this:
      float trueZ = projectionMatrix._43 / (input.position.z - projectionMatrix._33); output.depth = projectionMatrix._43 / (trueZ + zOffset) + projectionMatrix._33;
