      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.

Unity
Signed Distance Bitmap Font Tool

13 posts in this topic

Hi, All. OK, there is a cool paper from Valve here, on using a signed distance field in the alpha channel of a texture to recover a nice vector-like representation of a shape using a simple alpha threshold, or looking a bit better in a shader with a smoothstep function. Then I saw this journal, where OrangyTang was using it to render text. So I thought it would be cool to have a tool to build these bitmap font textures from the raw TTF font files. And it would be really cool if it had similar features to the awesome AngelCode Bitmap Font Generator! So I'm writing one, and here is the initial trial (it contains the exe and 3 very nice free fonts for testing purposes). How to use: * drag font files onto the exe * the app asks for a texture size (256 will yield a 256x256 texture for each input font file) * the app will render all valid glyphs in the ANSI range [0..255] * the app will automatically search for the largest rendering size (integer pixels only, so hinting works with a greater range of TrueType fonts) where it can pack the output into the texture you specified earlier * the app packs the rendered Signed Distance Field glyphs into a single texture * look at the output PNG and TXT file (in the same directory as the font file) Credits: * FreeType2 for font rendering * LodePNG for saving the resultant file * BinPacker code from GameDev's own jyk! Please try it out and let me know what you think. Here are my ideas for where I'm going after this (please give any feedback or feature requests): * I want to output a text file compliant with AngelCode's BMFont spec so existing loaders can use this output without changing anything other than the alpha threshold * I want an XML file for configuration so you can specify specific unicode characters (I'm thinking <range>A B</range> and <chars>A B C...ZY ZZ</chars>) * I want to allow an image for input, where a Signed Distance Field would then be computed from that into a lower resolution texture So, what do you think? The source will be released (MIT) when I'm a bit closer to done. (Note, the RGB and A channels all share the same signed distance data, so there is a bit of a border to each glyph...I could just use all white for the color, but I think this looks pretty good.)

Looking good! I certainly think adding ranges for unicode characters is a good thing, not many games can get away with using only ascii characters these days.

Make mine another vote for Unicode, though I wonder whether it would just be a lot simpler to just have a little UTF-8 data file specifying the characters you want, in the order you want them?

I've updated the zip (same link). The changes:

* after dragging fonts onto the exe, you specify texture size and the highest Unicode character number (only characters with glyphs will be rendered).

* the output text file now has the offset and advance information, so you can finally render text properly (I hope!) I appended "page=0 chnl=0" to the end of each line to mirror the AngelCode BMFont tool. Note that this info is not integer data, and the offsets may be negative (both functions of the same thing...the actual glyph has border texels to help define the Signed Distance Field)

* There is a bit more text describing the requested inputs

* there is much better error checking (e.g. dragging non-font files onto the exe)

* the zip now includes all my source code, ugly as it is (it also has the LodePNG and BinPacker code...you'll need to get and compile FreeType2 yourself)


@AndyPandyV2: thanks for the kind words, you're welcome for the app [8^)

@OrangyTang & Kylotan: thanks for the feedback/input. As a simple hack you can now input the range of characters to be rendered. I think I like the XML approach as it would be slightly easier for me to implement than the UTF-8 file with all needed characters for 3 reasons: easier to parse as I already use an XML lib, I could see the UTF-8 file getting huge, and there is no guarantee of the glyph order after the packing (though the attendant text file would be in the specified order). Would the XML file be an OK solution for your needs? Or even the current incarnation? (note that rendering the entire Microsoft Arial font into a 4096x4096 took > 20 minutes, so I could see the use of limited sub-ranges! [8^)

Here is some sample output, as I forgot to include this last time:

By definition the UTF-8 file would almost always be smaller than the XML version. However, you've not made it clear what metadata would go in the XML - not that I can see an immediate need for any. Not a big deal to me either way though.

Awesome work :)

I finally (after some confusion) got the output of your SDFont rendering using OrangyTang's shader and it looks great!

Between the two of you you've given the community a really cool couple of examples of a nice tech to work with!

Also I did it using your first version and as soon as I've got my rendering running you've already released a _new_ version! Outstanding!

I'm sorry, you are correct. Here is an example of what I was thinking:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<SDFont>
<range name="Basic Latin">0000 007F</range>
<range name="Extended Latin">00A0 02FF</range>
<range name="Greek">0300 03FF</range>
<chars name="Just Because">20A3 20A4 2500 2663</chars>
</SDFont>



@NineYearCycle: Thank you, I'm glad you can use it!

I've put a version that I knocked up over a couple of lunchtimes here (.zip & VC2005 .sln) there's no prizes for guessing where I grabbed the basecode from :D

It just uses the shader that OrangyTang gave out on his journal and some basic setup stuff that I grabbed from other OSS sites.

The effect is really cool and I'm impressed just how little effort and data it requires to get something like this going!

I'll try and pull out some of the shader constants later on and get it to give some options about which font it loads and uses.

At the moment there's some graphical issues relating to texture wrap, or maybe I've calculated the S & T values wrong for some of the characters. Haven't had chance to take a closer look yet.

Good work! I updated it to use your new version as well.

Oh I forgot to say, I used Glee for the opengl extension support and that it, totally arbitrarily, demands that your gfx card support GL version 2.0 or better.

Think I did that just because I was testing what version of OpenGL I had on my ATi at work :/ should probably remove it but if it bombs out early that'll be why!

I posted a new version with 2 new little features:

1) you can drag an image onto the exe, and it will generate a signed distance field from that (thanks to stb_image!). This will let you use the tool for logos or signs or whatever.

e.g. and

2) for the fonts, if you specify a negative texture size it will also save the resulting SDFont data to a C header file, for easy inclusion into a project. This is more something for me and less of a feature I think other people will like, but there you go [8^)

Thanks to everybody who has tested this!

[edited to add the gamedev logo [8^)

      Hi there,
      I am a game programmer (C#/C++) who is looking for a project to join. I am computer science engineer plus Master Degree in Game Development, currently working in one the most renown mobile games company (2 yeras academic experience, 1 year working experience).
      I have developed several prototypes or even games almost ready to release, but I always lack of artists, so I am looking for a project already set up or few artist to begin working in something.
      My preferences are:
      Unity or Unreal Engine 4 based project (UE4 prefered) PC/Console game prefered but mobile is accepted too Not interested in VR Serious team with almost all the roles filled or pretending to be filled 3D project prefered over 2D Not more than 7 work hours per week European team (if timezone is not a problem for you, so its not for me) I am not looking for any kind of money income from games neither the team, I want to do this as a hobby and a way to improve my skills.
      Cheers

Throughout the game you can side and complete missions through criminal cartels, and the two major combatants, the UCE and ACP, of the Interstellar Civil War.

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a 3D artist to join me in creating a new tower defense game with a twist. Very much a hobby project but one which I want to have a professional end product feeling, with something that we can eventually monetize. I have a lot of the base game design in my head but as a developer I'm doing the typical developer thing of thinking technically - so someone who would be enthusiastic about the idea and have input on the design too would be great.
      I usually start these things with people and they get bored so I'm left on my own with half a project - so really looking for someone who shares my enthusiasm (that doesn't mean sitting in front of a screen 24/7 either though - this is meant to be fun).
      A little about me - I am a development team leader in the real world and the last hobby project I worked on with one other developer was a puzzle game that got featured in popular IT magazine's, and ended up with over a million downloads. 
      If you're going to get in touch please provide a few samples
      Hope to be working with someone on this soon!
