a BIZARRE Status Report 2018

GameDev2017

It's damn hot in Germany! Isn't it the same for u?

Over the last four weeks, we've mainly sweated, but we managed to do some gamedev stuff, too! Now and then. 😉

First, we did a Status Report video, in which Charly Men talks about the achieved game successes of the last year as well as about all set targets till next year in July approx.

It’s a summary in which you can consume all important facts about the game in “only” 10 minutes.

We continued painting walls but that’s not new at all. It’s a tricky mission that will last weeks.

We also continued fine tuning Clearwaters shooting behavior. We modelled a gun. The gun that, shot by an unknown, will hit Clearwaters head in the first scene.
From then on, Clearwater will start receiving bizarre visions.

We modeled a one-handed shooting animation in which he is also walking, and we created a more accurate shooting animation holding the gun with both hands. We adapted his hands and fingers to the new gun and attached the weapon to his hand via envelopes.

 

We created some new facial animations for Clearwater, all relevant for the video. We want to make a drama out of the thing and keep the facial expressions hidden, just until the new video is published. 😛

The book writing is stopped at the moment as no one can write absurd horror scenes at 35 degrees. The sun, all the flowers, baby ducks and sun cream. Come on!!!

What to do in the next 4 weeks?

We continue texturing the game environment of the first game scene.

We want to switch between the one-handed and the both-handed shooting animation. We need to program that in UE4. We must check out how he can use his gun best.

We want to create a first test sequence for the new video in Clearwaters apartment. From the videos beginning till its end. Did we miss something, do we need more animations, more code, more texture?

It’s time to think about the background music for the new video. How would the BIZARRE music sound?

Continue writing the book BIZARRE Episode I as soon as the baby ducks get older.

Now then, ladies, let's get in the pool!! 😄

      Royalty Free Music for Game Developers
      If you found this page, you probably wondered at some point, "Why is it called Royalty Free Music when none of it is FREE?!" and maybe you already learned the definition of Royalty Free does not necessarily mean the content itself is free but rather refers to the "right to use copyrighted material without the need to pay license fees or usage fees."
      To put it simply, Royalty Free just means you don't have to pay to use the content. So why do so many people charge for it, and isn't that exactly the opposite of what Royalty Free means? Obviously artists and content makers who spend a lot of effort making something should be rewarded for their time, but in my opinion, they should not use the term "Royalty Free" to refer to their paid content.
      That is why I developed a FREE Royalty Free Music for YouTube Library for anyone and everyone who is looking for free professional music to use in their films, television shows, youtube promos, video games, you get the picture.
      How to Download
      To begin, simply choose a category of music from the list on the website linked above:

      Once you have selected your desired category of music, hover your mouse or finger over it and click the red button that appears to open up a small window with a media player in it that will look something like this:

      Click a song to listen to it, and click the down arrow to download the song, it's that easy!
      Licensing & Copyright Information
      If you like the song and you want to use it in a non-commercial project (something that does not earn you money) you can do that for free simply by attributing me in your credits somewhere! Just put "Music by Jordan Winslow on https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic" or simply "Music Downloaded from https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic"
      If you would like to use the music in a commercial project (something that earns you money) there is still no charge, but one more step: simply fill out the Royalty Free Music Commercial License Request Form.
      Downloading Free Royalty Free Music for your YouTube creations has never been so easy!

      Hi!
      Could someone suggest a solution for my problem?
      I am new to the UE4. I want to start developing an app. I need a texture of R16_UINT texels. It is an index in a shader, which maps other texels from a next resource (indirectly). How can I load such type texture to the engine? This type would be optimal for me. (or how to replace the idea?) It looks like the UE loads .tga files, wchich do not support it.
