      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

DX10 Render Question

4 posts in this topic

I've got a simple DirectX 10 3D program I wrote for class in order to display a varying number of triangles on screen then print out the FPS. I'm having an issue when I attempt to print text to screen. My triangles no longer render and I receive the following error messages in my output window: D3D10: ERROR: ID3D10Device::Draw: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The reason is that the input stage requires Semantic/Index (POSITION,0) as input, but it is not provided by the output stage. [ EXECUTION ERROR #342: DEVICE_SHADER_LINKAGE_SEMANTICNAME_NOT_FOUND ] D3D10: ERROR: ID3D10Device::Draw: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The reason is that Semantic 'COLOR' is defined for mismatched hardware registers between the output stage and input stage. [ EXECUTION ERROR #343: DEVICE_SHADER_LINKAGE_REGISTERINDEX ] Any suggestions? If I do not attempt to run my DrawTextString function everything runs fine. Code:
void DX10App::DrawTextString(int x, int y, D3DXCOLOR color, const WCHAR* strOutput)
{
	LPCWSTR text = LPCWSTR(strOutput);
	FontSprite->Begin(0);
	RECT rect = {x, y, 100, 50};
	Font->DrawText(FontSprite, text, -1, &rect, DT_LEFT, color);
	FontSprite->End();
}

void DX10App::Render()
{
	D3DXMATRIX mTranslateStart;
	D3DXMATRIX mScale;
	D3DXMATRIX World1;

	D3DXMatrixIdentity(&World1);

	float ClearColor[4] = {0.0f, 0.125f, 0.3f, 1.0f};
	d3dDevice->ClearRenderTargetView(RenderTargetView, ClearColor);
	
	if(myApp->GetTriMode() == 0)
	{
		D3DXMatrixScaling(&mScale, 1.0f / triWidth, 1.0f / triHeight, 1.0f);
		D3DXMatrixTranslation(&mTranslateStart, -1.0f / (triWidth / (triWidth + 1.0f)), (triHeight - 1.0f) / triHeight, 0.0f);

		WorldVariable->SetMatrix((float*)&World1);

		D3D10_TECHNIQUE_DESC techDesc;
		Technique->GetDesc(&techDesc);

		D3DXMatrixIdentity(&World1);
		D3DXMatrixMultiply(&World1, &World1, &mScale);
		D3DXMatrixMultiply(&World1, &World1, &mTranslateStart);
		
		for(int i = 0; i < triHeight; ++i)
		{
			for(int j = 0; j < triWidth; ++j)
			{	
				//D3DXMatrixMultiply(&g_World1, &g_World1, &mTranslateRight);
				World1._41 += 2.0f / triWidth;

				WorldVariable->SetMatrix((float*)&World1);

				for(UINT p = 0; p < techDesc.Passes; ++p)
				{
					Technique->GetPassByIndex(p)->Apply(0);
					d3dDevice->Draw(3, 0);
				}
			}

			//D3DXMatrixMultiply(&g_World1, &g_World1, &mTranslateLeft);
			World1._41 += -2.0f;
			//D3DXMatrixMultiply(&g_World1, &g_World1, &mTranslateDown);
			World1._42 += -2.0f / triHeight;
		}
	}
	else if(myApp->GetTriMode() == 1)
	{
		D3D10_TECHNIQUE_DESC techDesc;
		Technique->GetDesc(&techDesc);

		WorldVariable->SetMatrix((float*)&World1);

		for(UINT p = 0; p < techDesc.Passes; ++p)
		{
			Technique->GetPassByIndex(p)->Apply(0);
			d3dDevice->Draw((int)triHeight * (int)triWidth * 3, 0);
		}
	}

	WCHAR str[255];
	swprintf_s(str, 255, L"FPS: %.2f NumTris: %d", FPS, (triWidth * triHeight));

	DrawTextString(0, 0, D3DXCOLOR(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f), str);

	::SetWindowText(m_hWnd, str);

	SwapChain->Present(0, 0);
}

Mabye (remember, mabye) you should deactivate the shader, becouse, mabye, using NULL as ID3DXSprite, the shader code can't work on the text.
mmm ok it's wrong you are using sprite...

It's a my opinion so i do not know if it can work, but you can try in this way:

Just add this code before the DrawText, and use NULL as Sprite.


device->PSSetShader(NULL);
device->VSSetShader(NULL);
device->GSSetShader(NULL);


After the DrawText call, use
shader->GetTechniqueByIndex(0)->GetPassByName(0)->Apply();


Let me know about it.




Yes, i use DirectX10 from 1 week :D

It's because ID3DXFont/ID3DXSprite is modifying the state of the device - and not restoring it afterwards. To rectify this, pass in D3DX10_SPRITE_SAVE_STATE when calling ID3DSprite::Begin().
