Hi all,

It's the weekend before release, so I thought I'd show off another Let's Play! This one is a rather in-depth look at the secondary game mode of Building Block Heroes, Connect Mode. Thanks to PalicoPadge for taking the time to do this!

 

Let me know what you think! Feel free to check out the store page if you're interested:

      Hey,
      So I have got this asteroid type game and today I encountered a new issue while testing this game.
      What happened was that two asteroids were close to each other and I shot a bullet at them. The asteroids were so close to each other that a single bullet could collide to both of them.
      It collided and my game crashed there itself. I figured out it happened because two asteroids and one bullet collided in the same frame.
      This is the code -
      ```void Collision::DoCollisions(Game *game) const
      {
          for (ColliderList::const_iterator colliderAIt = colliders_.begin(), end = colliders_.end();
              colliderAIt != end;
              ++colliderAIt)
          {
              ColliderList::const_iterator colliderBIt = colliderAIt;
              for (++colliderBIt; colliderBIt != end; ++colliderBIt)
              {
                  Collider *colliderA = *colliderAIt;
                  Collider *colliderB = *colliderBIt;
                  if (CollisionTest(colliderA, colliderB))
                  {
                      game->DoCollision(colliderA->entity, colliderB->entity);
                  }
              }
          }
      }```
       
      ```
      void Game::DoCollision(GameEntity *a, GameEntity *b)
      {
          Ship *player = static_cast<Ship *>(a == player_ ? a : (b == player_ ? b : 0));
          Bullet *bullet = static_cast<Bullet *>(IsBullet(a) ? a : (IsBullet(b) ? b : 0));
          Asteroid *asteroid = static_cast<Asteroid *>(IsAsteroid(a) ? a : (IsAsteroid(b) ? b : 0));
          Bullet *bulletMode = static_cast<Bullet *>(IsBulletMode(a) ? a : (IsBulletMode(b) ? b : 0));
          if (player && asteroid)
          {
              player->playerCollided = true;
              //AsteroidHit(asteroid);
              //DeletePlayer();
          }
          if (bullet && asteroid)
          {
              collidedBullets.push_back(bullet);
              collidedAsteroid.push_back(asteroid);
              //AsteroidHit(asteroid);
              //DeleteBullet();
          }
          if(bulletMode && asteroid)
          {
              collidedBulletMode.push_back(bulletMode);
              collidedAsteroid.push_back(asteroid);
          }
      }```
       
      ```
      void Game::CollisionResponse()
      {
          if(player_->playerCollided == true)
          {
              DeletePlayer();
          }
          else
          {
          if(!collidedAsteroid.empty())
          {
              for(AsteroidList::const_iterator collidedAsteroidIt = collidedAsteroid.begin(), end = collidedAsteroid.end(); collidedAsteroidIt != end ; ++collidedAsteroidIt )
              {
                  AsteroidHit(*collidedAsteroidIt);
              }
              collidedAsteroid.clear();
          }
          
          if(!collidedBullets.empty())
          {
          for (BulletList::const_iterator bulletIt = collidedBullets.begin(), end = collidedBullets.end() ; bulletIt!=end; ++bulletIt)
          {
              DeleteBullet(*bulletIt);
          }
          
              collidedBullets.clear();
          }
          if(!collidedBulletMode.empty())
          {
              for (BulletList::const_iterator bulletIt = collidedBulletMode.begin(), end = collidedBulletMode.end() ; bulletIt!=end; ++bulletIt)
              {
                  DeleteBulletMode(*bulletIt);
              }
              collidedBulletMode.clear();
          }
      }
          }```
       
       
      in my game->docollision() -
      whenever an asteroid and a bullet used to collide, the collided objects get collected in collidedasteroids and collidedbullets respectively. When two asteroids collided with the same bullet, the two asteroids got collected safely in collidedAsteroid but the single bullet got collected in collidedBullets twice, so when the deletion was happening, the second time iteration of the bullet couldn't find the respective bullet and it got crashed.
       
      How am I supposed to approach this problem now?
       
      Thanks

      How to calculate angle between two points from a third point with the help of D3DXMATH library?

      Game developers work extremely hard to get their titles in front of gamers but what more can PC resellers do to help developers grow? See what answer Intel® has and how they plan on expanding your game's reach.

      Game developers work hard to get their titles in front of gamers, immediately upon release. A new title generally commands its full retail price during the first few months, but promotional sales are a common practice to increase sales and players once a title has been in the market for a while.  
      Reaching More Gamers, Sooner
      Media sites such as IGN, Metacritic, Slate, FANDOM, GAMESBEAT, Engadget, YouTube, Twitch.tv and PCMag.com help get the word out about new titles through news, reviews, events and influencer opinions. Many game developers also have promotional relationships (some exclusive) with major platform players like Intel, nVIDIA, Sony (PlayStation), Microsoft (Xbox), and PC OEMs.  
      Intel offers Starter Packs through PC OEMs to get titles in front of gamers.  Consumers may get a “pack” of select titles and downloadable content with the purchase of a qualifying system. We’ve run that program for five years, and we expect millions of bundles to be sold in 2017, supporting hundreds of PC resellers and retailers, worldwide. Can you imagine the number of gamers we reach? In addition, Intel® Extreme Masters eSports tournaments and expanding global and regional gaming events help more gamers hear about and experience new titles.
