Hi guys, I've started this topic 3/2/2004. Finally, it became obvious very fast that I didn't have the Mathematics skills to code this game. Then a few weeks ago somebody on another forum posted a link to Lutz Tautenhahn's homepage to show me his work with the SVG-VML-3D javascript library. I couldn't help but notice the Magic Eye section of his site and I decided to pitch him my idea on August 24th. 4 days later it's done! He replied today with the game! Coded in javascript with GIF images!

Hi Christian, thanks for your suggestion. I just programmed the game, have a look at the end of the page http://home.t-online.de/home/lutz.tautenhahn/mageye/index.html There you can play it. However, it has only 5 colums, because the number of required images doubles with every column. Regards, Lutz T.

Kudos Lutz! You're amazing! I've played it. It's very basic, but it works. Enjoy: Magic Tetris 3D Christian

Amazing!!

I can see magic images well, but I didn't ever think I could use them in games. Could be nice option in 3d racing :p

Swell, nice. Never seen this on a computer great idea. Although this technic should only be used for quick games, cause your eyes will start to hurt.
Still nice idea, I bookmarked it:D

This reminds me. If been to an imax 3d cinema. Now that is awesome technology.
Huge screen and some hi-tech glasses for a truely 3d effect.
Imagine an entire game with this technology.
OMG

CProgrammer: I saw one of these recently at the mall, except you didn't need glasses, the screen was covered with some kind of surface that projected rays different ways.

Also, there exist special glasses that you can use to play games in real 3D. Frames are simply rendered alternately for the left and right eye, and the driver also "tells" the glasses when each eye should be able to see the screen. The glasses then become opaque for the eye that must be blind, and only the other eye sees the frame. A framerate of 100FPS means you see 50FPS in the end.

I think this was posted on GameDev a while back, and it seemd relevant:

that is amazing. it takes me a few minutes to get focues, but after that i can see it without really trying. It feels wierd when y you focus on it for a long time and then come out of it.

I always see those things backwards.... everythig goes away from me instead of popping out.


You're probably crossing your eyes instead of widening them (or vicea versa, if they're meant for the other way). It took me awhile to develop the ability to do so... you start with looking "beyond" the picture, or trying to.

Unfortunately, I can't yet focus on the game - the entire row image changing is too distracting for my eyes to maintain focus.

Took me like five games before I could see the pieces. Then played for a bit before my eyes got tired. Only got to level 2 with a score of 1560. Interesting game.

Edit - ohh... Just noticed the pause feature, makes it easier to focus before starting. :)

Great link Nairb! I'm collecting all these and I will eventually create a new page on my website for all the Magic Eye games on the Net.

Vampyre_Dark, I agree about the colors. I made a second version in silver/white. It's in French though (translated it for my friends). More choices to come. Each image has only 2 colors. I think I'll make a green one... I didn't bother to test in another browser than IE6 since all my friends use it.

I must've spent over an hour of my life in total trying to make these things work, and I'm still no better off. I do as they say and look beyond the picture, trying different focuses and different lengths from the screen. What is wrong with me!? :(

      I'm working on a space game, and I suck at art. I would love to get some help from someone who is more skilled than me. Things I need include modular space ship parts and GUI elements. Nothing too fancy, just functional so I can get a prototype put together. This could potentially become a serious project, but for now this is just a hobby project.
       
      In this video, you can see a few things I already completed

      If you want to incorporate noise into your shaders, the Turbulance Library has you covered. Using code I gathered from this library, I made a cginc file that contains all you need to easily implement noise into your unity shaders. Who knows how this stuff works, but man, does it work well!

      Here is an example of what you can create using these noise functions.

      I'll be buying a new laptop as my workstation for building games, Mostly 3D but not hard core. 
       
      I'm stuck at choosing between these 2 specs below. Does this really matter and if so, can some one tell my how and why it matters. 
      Choice1:
      Intel core i5-8250U (8th gen Kabylake refresh)(6 MB Smart Cache, 1.6 GHz Base with Turbo Boost up to 3.4 GHz) 4 cores 8 threads
      RAM 8 GB DDR4 (2400 MHz)
      GPU 2 GB DDR5 Nvidia MX150 256 bit
      SSD: yes
      Choice2:
      Intel core i7-7500U 2.70GHz Base Processor (4M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz Boost) 2 Cores, 4 Threads
      RAM 4 GB DDR4 (1800 MHz)
      GPU 2 GB DDR5 Nvidia GeForce 940MX 256 bit
      SSD: No

      Hello fellow devs!
      Once again I started working on an 2D adventure game and right now I'm doing the character-movement/animation. I'm not a big math guy and I was happy about my solution, but soon I realized that it's flawed.
      My player has 5 walking-animations, mirrored for the left side: up, upright, right, downright, down. With the atan2 function I get the angle between player and destination. To get an index from 0 to 4, I divide PI by 5 and see how many times it goes into the player-destination angle.

      In Pseudo-Code:
      angle = atan2(destination.x - player.x, destination.y - player.y) //swapped y and x to get mirrored angle around the y axis
      index = (int) (angle / (PI / 5));
      PlayAnimation(index); //0 = up, 1 = up_right, 2 = right, 3 = down_right, 4 = down

      Besides the fact that when angle is equal to PI it produces an index of 5, this works like a charm. Or at least I thought so at first. When I tested it, I realized that the up and down animation is playing more often than the others, which is pretty logical, since they have double the angle.

      What I'm trying to achieve is something like this, but with equal angles, so that up and down has the same range as all other directions.

      I can't get my head around it. Any suggestions? Is the whole approach doomed?

      Thank you in advance for any input!

      Hi Everyone,
      Like most here, I'm a newbie but have been dabbling with game development for a few years. I am currently working full-time overseas and learning the craft in my spare time. It's been a long but highly rewarding adventure. Much of my time has been spent working through tutorials. In all of them, as well as my own attempts at development, I used the audio files supplied by the tutorial author, or obtained from one of the numerous sites online. I am working solo, and will be for a while, so I don't want to get too wrapped up with any one skill set. Regarding audio, the files I've found and used are good for what I was doing at the time. However I would now like to try my hand at customizing the audio more. My game engine of choice is Unity and it has an audio mixer built in that I have experimented with following their tutorials. I have obtained a great book called Game Audio Development with Unity 5.x that I am working through. Half way through the book it introduces using FMOD to supplement the Unity Audio Mixer. Later in the book, the author introduces Reaper (a very popular DAW) as an external program to compose and mix music to be integrated with Unity. I did some research on DAWs and quickly became overwhelmed. Much of what I found was geared toward professional sound engineers and sound designers. I am in no way trying or even thinking about getting to that level. All I want to be able to do is take a music file, and tweak it some to get the sound I want for my game. I've played with Audacity as well, but it didn't seem to fit the bill. So that is why I am looking at a better quality DAW. Since being solo, I am also under a budget contraint. So of all the DAW software out there, I am considering Reaper or Presonus Studio One due to their pricing. My question is, is investing the time to learn about using a DAW to tweak a sound file worth it? Are there any solo developers currently using a DAW as part of their overall workflow? If so, which one? I've also come across Fabric which is a Unity plug-in that enhances the built-in audio mixer. Would that be a better alternative?
      I know this is long, and maybe I haven't communicated well in trying to be brief. But any advice from the gurus/vets would be greatly appreciated. I've leaned so much and had a lot of fun in the process. BTW, I am also a senior citizen (I cut my programming teeth back using punch cards and Structured Basic when it first came out). If anyone needs more clarification of what I am trying to accomplish please let me know.  Thanks in advance for any assistance/advice.
