A Bucket Of Nuggets



Plane controls have gotten as good as we can get them before multiplayer. They are responsive and the maneuvering is good. The next part is to figure out how much or little climbing power and speed they get. This is best tested when you’re getting shot at. Level design also plays a factor in this.

We have moved on to the helicopter controls. Early controls pancaked most of us into the ground a lot when you tried to aim and move at the same time . Now there is less pancaking and we are working on the aiming. (These vids are of builds a couple of weeks old, with pancaking control schemes)

We are going to be integrating out first map proper map into the game shortly. Its a work in progress as everything else right now, but it did bring up a special topic to discuss.
Level design needed some serious decisions on a specific feature. We all flung several examples around during the meeting. Analysed google metrics. Spent several afternoons collecting public opinion on the high street. Called for input from friends and relatives (including all our exes). All of this resulted in finding out that 5 of us had more children than expected AND that we finally decided on the art style for some more rocks.


It was clear that Type 3 solids beat out the Type 6 competition.
So yay! We got more rocks!

      mod.io is an cross platform mod service created by the team behind ModDB.com and IndieDB.com. It can be integrated in-game using the  REST API, C/C++ SDK or engine plugins (if available) Unity is ready and Unreal Engine is in development.
      Features include:
      Platform agnostic (support 1 click mod installs on Steam, Epic Games Store, Discord, GOG, itch.io and even consoles in the future) Clientless (mod.io has no other dependencies and works behind the scenes in your game) Embeddable web app UI, so you can integrate your mod community anywhere Powerful search, filtering and tagging of mods Moderation and reporting systems built-in Steps to getting mod.io integrated:
      Add your game to our test environment or production Read our API documentation for an overview of how mod.io works Choose an Engine Plugin, API or SDK to integrate mod.io into your game and mod making tools Ready to launch? Add your game to our production environment then let's discuss promoting your release Need help? Our team is available on Discord to assist and our getting started guide has more information for you  
      Benefits of using mod.io:
      mod.io offers the same core functionality as Steamworks Workshop (1 click mod installs in-game), plus mod hosting, moderation and all of the critical pieces needed. Where we differ is our approach to modding and the flexibility a REST API offers. For example: 
      Our API is not dependent on a client or SDK, allowing you to run mod.io in many places such as your homepage and launchers Designing a good mod browsing UI is hard, our plugins ship with a UI built in to save you a lot of effort and help your mods stand out We don’t apply rules globally, so if you want to enable patronage, sales or other experimental features, reach out to discuss Our platform is built by the super experienced ModDB.com team and is continually improving for your benefit Your community can consume the mod.io API to build modding fan sites or discord bots if they want Large studios and publishers:
      A private white label option is available to license, if you want a fully featured mod-platform that you can control and host in-house. Contact us to discuss.

      Hello, I'm currently searching for additional talented and passionate members for our team that's creating a small horror game.
      About the game: The game would be a small sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.
      Engine that'd be used to create the game: Unity
      About me: I'm a music composer with 4 years of experience and I'm fairly new in this game development world, and I'm currently leading the team that'd be creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing. Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and learning how to program.
      Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 4 3D Modelers, 2 Game Programmers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 1 Concept Artist, 1 3D Animator and 1 Community Manager.
      Who am I looking for: We are looking for a talented and passionate programmer that's experienced with Unity and C#.
      Right now the game is in mid-early development and you can see more information about it and follow our progress in our game jolt page here: https://gamejolt.com/games/devilspunishment/391190 . We expect to finish some sort of prototype in 3 months from now.
      This is a contract rev-share position
      If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

      I have an old game (Beyond Protocol) that is written in VB.NET.  The game is aged but works well.  Since the begining, 10 years ago, switching from windowed to full screen, or changing the windowed resolution always pops a critical error on device reset.  I've debugged all I can and have reached a lack of understanding as to where to go from here.
      Is there anyone out there with legacy VB.NET and DX9 knowledge that could lend me a hand?
      Thanks in advance.
      == Here is where it errors ==
                      Dim uParms As PresentParameters = CreatePresentationParams(mfrmMain)
                      If uParms Is Nothing Then Return False
      the last line pops a object not referenced exception yet moDEvice is valid, with details, and uParams is valid with details.
      Oddly after several resets it eventually corrects itself.

      Hi all.

      I came across an issue today with the D3D11DeviceContext->Draw method. In a nutshell, after hours of pulling out what little hair I have left...  I was able to find out the that if I did the following:
      set the vertex buffer map the vertex buffer update the vertex buffer contents unmap the vertex buffer use the context->Draw method to draw some lines repeat 2 to 5 multiple times then the gpu didn't actually calculate the output vertices correctly. In RenderDoc I can see that the map update did succeed as the vertex buffer contents are changing, however the output vertex positions would all be the same values as if the gpu was only using just the first piece of mapped data. Rather strange for a state machine. So I tried this order:
      map the vertex buffer update the vertex buffer unmap the vertex buffer set the vertex buffer context->Draw repeat 1 to 5 multiple times and everything is drawing as expected.
      Is this normal/expected or could this some kind of bug?
