Greetings! 

The fifth devlog is a video demonstration of my experiment with post processing filters. I found the following result interesting, it can be an option in the main menu - the player can choose how his gameplay process will look. It looks completely different from the standard pixelated mode. 

Here is the video:

I personally think it looks awesome.  Maybe better than the original pixely look.

      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.

      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) { }

      This is a project I've been working on for awhile now. I'd say over all going on around a year. I did the Machbot 2.0 all from scratch including the textures. I spent countless hours trying to figure out how to get the models from Twisted Metal. I finally figured out how to manually extract the mesh. But the only problem was it was not UV mapped. So i pretty much had to go back in and remap everything. Which wasn't hard but the assembling of the model itself was a challenge. I did the best I could at placing stuff where it goes I'm sure there are things that are incorrect. All in all it was for this one render. Not sure if my models can be used as game assets but i do want to eventually make this into a fighting game. Both vehicles and bots. Let me know what you think and thank you for checking out my work.

      Hey
       
      I have recently put together a small portfolio with the intention of going to developers to try get freelance work producing music for video games. 
      I am after some constructive criticisms and maybe a reality check as to weather my music is even close to good enough to present to developers asking for paid work.

      Ill appreciate any feedback and advice, thanks.
