Hello, I am working on an example from http://www.euclideanspace.com/maths/algebra/vectors/lookat/index.htm but unfortunately, it is impossible for me to have the good result. This example is used to give the Euler angles from a vector. The C code is showed below. This example does not give me the good result. I don't know why, I am not a matrix expert... This code must use a function named LookAt() but, this function is unable to give me the good matrix. It is impossible for me to use DX or OpenGl because this code must be inserted in microcontroler. Thank you for your help, Gorillus #include <string.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <math.h> //***************************************************************************** typedef struct{ double m00; double m01; double m02; double m10; double m11; double m12; double m20; double m21; double m22; } Matrix3d_t; typedef struct{ double Heading; /* Fi */ double Attitude;/* Teta */ double Bank; /* Psi */ } EulerAngle_t; typedef struct{ double x; double y; double z; double Norm; } Vector3_t; //***************************************************************************** #define PI 3.141592654 //***************************************************************************** static void LookAt(Vector3_t * pDir, Vector3_t * pTarget, Matrix3d_t * pM); static void VectorCrossProduct(Vector3_t * pVector1, Vector3_t * pVector2, Vector3_t * pCross); static void VectorNormalise(Vector3_t * pVector); static double VectorDotProduct(Vector3_t * pV1, Vector3_t * pV2); static void EulerAnglesGet(Matrix3d_t * pPoint, EulerAngle_t * pAngles); static void MatrixSetComponents(Matrix3d_t * pM, Vector3_t * pX, Vector3_t * pY, Vector3_t * pZ); //***************************************************************************** void main(void) { Matrix3d_t M; EulerAngle_t Angles; Vector3_t VectorUnity; Vector3_t VectorDir; /* Starting point (Known as Pcurrent) */ VectorUnity.x = 1; VectorUnity.y = 0; VectorUnity.z = 0; VectorNormalise(&VectorUnity); /* Direction point (Known as Ptarget) */ VectorDir.x = 1; VectorDir.y = 1; VectorDir.z = 0; LookAt(&VectorUnity, &VectorDir, &M); printf("Matrix created by LookAt() :\n"); printf("%lf \t %lf \t %lf\n", M.m00, M.m01, M.m02); printf("%lf \t %lf \t %lf\n", M.m10, M.m11, M.m12); printf("%lf \t %lf \t %lf\n", M.m20, M.m21, M.m22); printf("\n"); EulerAnglesGet(&M, &Angles); printf("Euler angles : Heading = %lf, Attitude = %lf, Bank = %lf\n", Angles.Heading, Angles.Attitude, Angles.Bank); } //***************************************************************************** static void LookAt(Vector3_t * pDir, Vector3_t * pTarget, Matrix3d_t * pM) { Vector3_t x; Vector3_t y; Vector3_t z; // z = pDir memcpy(&z, pDir, sizeof(Vector3_t)); VectorNormalise(&z); VectorCrossProduct(pTarget, &z, &x);// x = Target cross z VectorNormalise(&x); VectorCrossProduct(&z, &x, &y);// y = z cross x MatrixSetComponents(pM, &x, &y, &z); } //***************************************************************************** static void VectorCrossProduct(Vector3_t * pVector1, Vector3_t * pVector2, Vector3_t * pCross) { pCross->x = pVector1->y * pVector2->z - pVector1->z * pVector2->y; pCross->y = pVector1->z * pVector2->x - pVector1->x * pVector2->z; pCross->z = pVector1->x * pVector2->y - pVector1->y * pVector2->x; } //***************************************************************************** static void VectorNormalise(Vector3_t * pVector) { double fLength = sqrt( pVector->x * pVector->x + pVector->y * pVector->y + pVector->z * pVector->z); // Will also work for zero-sized vectors, but will change nothing if ( fLength > 1e-06 ) { double fInvLength = 1.0 / fLength; pVector->x *= fInvLength; pVector->y *= fInvLength; pVector->z *= fInvLength; } pVector->Norm = fLength; } //***************************************************************************** static double VectorDotProduct(Vector3_t * pV1, Vector3_t * pV2) { return pV1->x * pV2->x + pV1->y * pV2->y + pV1->z * pV2->z; } //***************************************************************************** static void EulerAnglesGet(Matrix3d_t * pPoint, EulerAngle_t * pAngles) { if (pPoint->m10 > 0.998) { // singularity at north pole pAngles->Heading = atan2(pPoint->m02, pPoint->m22); pAngles->Attitude = PI / 2; pAngles->Bank = 0; return; } if (pPoint->m10 < -0.998) { // singularity at south pole pAngles->Heading = atan2(pPoint->m02, pPoint->m22); pAngles->Attitude = -PI / 2; pAngles->Bank = 0; return; } pAngles->Heading = atan2(-pPoint->m20, pPoint->m00); pAngles->Bank = atan2(-pPoint->m12, pPoint->m11); pAngles->Attitude = asin(pPoint->m10); } //***************************************************************************** static void MatrixSetComponents(Matrix3d_t * pM, Vector3_t * pX, Vector3_t * pY, Vector3_t * pZ) { pM->m00 = pX->x; pM->m01 = pY->x; pM->m02 = pZ->x; pM->m10 = pX->y; pM->m11 = pY->y; pM->m12 = pZ->y; pM->m20 = pX->z; pM->m21 = pY->z; pM->m22 = pZ->z; } //*****************************************************************************

I'll be happy to take a look at this, but could you edit your post so that the code is formatted correctly? (It'll be easier to read that way.)

Usually, putting it in [source][/source] tags will do the trick.

      Hi , I was considering this start up http://adshir.com/, for investment and i would like a little bit of feedback on what the developers community think about the technology.
      So far what they have is a demo that runs in real time on a Tablet at over 60FPS, it runs locally on the  integrated GPU of the i7 . They have a 20 000 triangles  dinosaur that looks impressive,  better than anything i saw on a mobile device, with reflections and shadows looking very close to what they would look in the real world. They achieved this thanks to a  new algorithm of a rendering technique called Path tracing/Ray tracing, that  is very demanding and so far it is done mostly for static images.
      From what i checked around there is no real option for real time ray tracing (60 FPS on consumer devices). There was imagination technologies that were supposed to release a chip that supports real time ray tracing, but i did not found they had a product in the market or even if the technology is finished as their last demo  i found was with a PC.  The other one is OTOY with their brigade engine that is still not released and if i understand well is more a cloud solution than in hardware solution .
      Would there  be a sizable  interest in the developers community in having such a product as a plug-in for existing game engines?  How important  is Ray tracing to the  future of high end real time graphics?

      Good day,

      I just wanted to share our casual game that is available for android.

      Description: Fight your way from the ravenous plant monster for survival through flips. The rules are simple, drag and release your phone screen. Improve your skills and show it to your friends with the games quirky ranks. Select an array of characters using the orb you acquire throughout the game.

      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!

      without going into any details I am looking for any articles or blogs or advice about city building and RTS games in general. I tried to search for these on my own, but would like to see your input also. I want to make a very simple version of a game like Banished or Kingdoms and Castles,  where I would be able to place like two types of buildings, make farms and cut trees for resources while controlling a single worker. I have some problem understanding how these games works in the back-end: how various data can be stored about the map and objects, how grids works, implementing work system (like a little cube (human) walks to a tree and cuts it) and so on. I am also pretty confident in my programming capabilities for such a game. Sorry if I make any mistakes, English is not my native language.
      Thank you in advance.
