First Post!



Here it is! My first post in my new blog :) Starting today I will be updating this just about everyday with something new I learned, tips and tricks I have acquired and just any information regarding game design. My hope for this is to meet others who are relatively new to game design and/or help each other along the way!

I was thinking about using this as well. After all, it's very convenient. Welcome.

      I'm creating a spider solitaire game in my free time and will be adding daily challenges. There will be a challenge each day until the end of the month. After which, the challenges will reset for the next month. 
      I do have some in mind but for a card game, creating unique challenges for each day is kind of tough.
      I played Microsoft's Spider Solitaire's daily challenges and found them to be the same/boring after a while. 
      I would love to hear your ideas (unique) if any. Something different from the daily challenges created by Microsoft Spider Solitaire.

      Hi! I'm looking for a c++ hobbyist (intermediate experience, due to difficulty level) interested in helping recreating some basic core Splatoon mechanics to learn and practice.
      Ink (painting, teamcolor) Player controls (squid form, humanoid form, camera) Weapons (shooter, charger, and roller). I already have some techniques in mind for creating the ink, which I'd discuss privately in a DM. ^^

      I represent Node Collective LLC and we're making a large open world, FPS style game. Something sort of like Farcry 5.
      We already established a large team of professionals and college grads. We're in need of many more programmers for UE4.
      So if anyone is wishing to develop their skill, and pick up some of the slack for mechanics, that'd be awesome!

      I’d like to show you my current video project “Game Audio Lookout”. It is not a game itself but a series on YouTube about how music and sound design in games work.
      There is three episodes I produced within the last month and I’m planning to release them on a regular basis!
      Currently I made 3 episodes so far:
      Enhancing Gameplay with Music in Celeste -
      On the surface, “Celeste” is a brutally hard 2D platforming game about climbing the imaginary Celeste Mountain but it is much more than that. It narrates a compelling story of main character Madeline fighting with her demon doppelgänger. Gameplay-wise, super tricky levels combined with tight controls let you fail and re-try over and over again. But what it makes it even more enjoyable is the wonderful soundtrack composed by Lena Raine we’ll have a look at in this episode of “Game Audio Lookout”.
      EarthBound - A Quirky Artistic Synergy of Story, Art and Music -
      In fact, there’s many ways how the three elements writing, artwork and sound can play together. There’s AAA titles with cinematic writing, photorealistic graphics and epic orchestral music on the one hand. Another good example is the “Super Mario Odyssey” world “Steam Gardens” with its funky vibes due to a coherent artistic feel of character design, graphics and audio. But today, we’ll go back to the Super Nintendo era to have a look at one of the strangest games Nintendo ever created: “Earthbound”
      Deconstructing a Musical Level in Rayman Legends -
      Rayman Legends has found its way into many “Best Platformer Games of All-Time” lists. Though it closely fails to beat the uncrowned king Super Mario, it found a safe place next the Nintendo mascot.
      The Rayman series was created by French game designer Michel Ancel and started in 1995 with the 2D jump’n’run Rayman. It was followed by two 3D platforming games: Rayman 2 and Rayman 3. But the series went back to 2D sidescrolling with Rayman Origins in 2011. Origins was also the first Rayman game using the UbiArt Framwork which also was adopted by the 2013 release “Rayman Legends”.
      In this episode we’ll deconstruct one of the incredible musical stages in Rayman Legends.

      I'm taking my first steps in programming with Direct3D. I have a very basic pipeline setup, and all I want to get from it is an antialiased smooth image. But I get this:

      First, I can't get rid of stair effect though I have 4x MSAA enabled already in my pipeline (DXGI_SAMPLE_DESC::Count is 4 and Quality is 0): 

      And second, I get this noisy texturing though I have mipmaps generated and LINEAR filtering set in the sampler state.

      Am I missing something or doing wrong? I would appreciate any advice on that.
      Here is my code:
      1) Renderer class:
      2) Vertex shader:
      3) Pixel shader:
      Thank you in advance!
