      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.

[SOLVED] [GLSL] help with sampler2D

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I am currently working on a shader for a multi-textured RTT. Currently, however, the first sampler2D comes out a greenish color while the second is clear. Any ideas? vertex shader
varying vec2 TexCoord;

void main(){
        //gl_TexCoord[0] = gl_MultiTexCoord0; //NOTE:uncommening does nothing
        TexCoord = gl_MultiTexCoord0.st;
        gl_Position = ftransform();
}



fragment shader
uniform sampler2D tex0;
uniform sampler2D tex1;

varying vec2 TexCoord;

void main(){
        vec4 textel0 = texture2D( tex0, TexCoord );
        vec4 textel1 = texture2D( tex1, TexCoord );
        vec3 temp = mix( textel0.rgb, textel1.rgb, textel1.a );
        gl_FragColor = vec4(temp, textel0.a );
}



bound with
void glslSetValue1i( GLuint program, GLchar *name, GLint value ){
        GLint location;
        location = glGetUniformLocation( program, name );
        if( location == -1 ){
                printf("Error:: GLSL >> Error setting %s to %i\n", name, value );
                return;
        }

        glUniform1i( location, value );
}

....
glslSetValue1i( pro, "tex0", 0 );
glslSetValue1i( pro, "tex1", 1 );



edit: the draw code lol
//enable texture0, base
        glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0);
        glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, base->GetID());

        //enable texture1, object
        glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1);
        glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, object->GetID());

        // set the texture as render target
        glDrawBuffer (GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0_EXT);

        //insure that everythign is being rendered by the shader
        glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT,GL_FILL);
        glLoadIdentity();

        //set up the viewport 
        glViewport( 0, 0, base->GetWidth(), base->GetHeight() );

        glTranslatef( 0.0, 0.0, -1.0 );

        glBegin(GL_QUADS);
                //glTexCoord2f(0.0, 0.0); 
                glVertex3f( -1.0, 1.0, 0.0 );

                //glTexCoord2f( 1.0, 0.0 );
                glVertex3f( 1.0, 1.0, 0.0 );

                //glTexCoord2f( 1.0, 1.0 );
                glVertex3f( 1.0, -1.0, 0.0 );

                //glTexCoord2f( 0.0, 1.0 );
                glVertex3f( -1.0, -1.0, 0.0 );
        glEnd();

        //unbind the texture occupying the second texture unit
        glActiveTexture( GL_TEXTURE1 );
        glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0 );

        //unbind the texture occupying the first texture unit
        glActiveTexture( GL_TEXTURE0 );
        glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0 );

        glDrawBuffer(0);
        //render back to the standard buffer
        glBindFramebufferEXT( GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, 0 );

At first glance your code all makes sense..

You say one texture comes out green and the other clear...
I don't follow you as you are mixing the two in your shaders.. This may be exactly what should happen when you factor in the .a blending and the actual content of the two textures...

Things to be aware of.. Are you doing any lighting?
Are you setting up the Texture coordinates as you need them in your main C++ code? Because you are using the fixed pipeline Texture coord stuff to load TexCoord in your shaders.

First when I do gl_FragColor = texel0; it just shows green, with texel1 is clear..
No lighting, and the other things I dont know what you mean.

You have commented glTexCoord2f calls, any reason why ?

Also check if you have texturing enabled, have proper filtering set (and/or mipmaps generated) etc.

fixed it, I had commented the glTexCoord becouse I didnt think I needed them, the error was in the drawing code (as has been pointed out here)

[drawing]

glBegin(GL_QUADS);
glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE0, 0.0, 0.0 );
glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE1, 0.0 + xOffset, 0.0 + yOffset );
glVertex3f( -1.0, -1.0, 0.0 );

glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE0, 1.0, 0.0 );
glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE1, 1.0 + xOffset, 0.0 + yOffset );
glVertex3f( 1.0, -1.0, 0.0 );

glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE0, 1.0, 1.0 );
glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE1, 1.0 + xOffset, 1.0 + yOffset );
glVertex3f( 1.0, 1.0, 0.0 );

glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE0, 0.0, 1.0 );
glMultiTexCoord2f( GL_TEXTURE1, 0.0 + xOffset, 1.0 + yOffset );
glVertex3f( -1.0, 1.0, 0.0 );
glEnd();



and the shaders (not much change )


[vertex]
void main(){
gl_TexCoord[0] = gl_MultiTexCoord0;
gl_TexCoord[1] = gl_MultiTexCoord1;
gl_Position = ftransform();
}

[fragement]
uniform sampler2D tex0;
uniform sampler2D tex1;

void main(){
vec4 textel0 = texture2D( tex0, gl_TexCoord[0].st );
vec4 textel1 = texture2D( tex1, gl_TexCoord[1].st );
vec3 temp = mix( textel0.rgb, textel1.rgb, textel1.a );
gl_FragData[0] = vec4( temp, textel0.a );

}




THANKS FOR THE HELP!! ^__^
