      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.

any insight into my problem is welcome,

also, with gl frustum, how can i make sure there is no warping of models from field of view. i also heard it was depreciated so an alternative would be awesome, thanks!

I'm going to follow the same trend I did in your previous threads:

What does your shader look like?
Is your texture actually loaded? What is the ID returned by soil?
Are your UV coordinates properly loaded?
What does the model look like now?

[/quote]

1. no shader is actualy being loaded for the rendering of the model (should there be?)
2. yes the texture is loaded, the real question is how can i find the ID generated by soil?
3. UV co-ordinates are parsed and are in the 3ds file.
4. model looks just like a lit teapot with no texture.

No, doesn't have to, but I see one being loaded in your program and as I don't know your full code, I don't want to assume you're not doing anything with it.

Well.. Obviously this:
[code]tmpIndex = SOIL_load_OGL_texture(texfilename,SOIL_LOAD_AUTO,SOIL_CREATE_NEW_ID,SOIL_FLAG_MIPMAPS);[/code]
tmpIndex should return something other than 0. If this is 0 it means you are not loading your texture properly.

Also, SOIL takes all the loading for you, do you really need all the texture functions? I'm sure you don't need glGenTextures and glTexImage2D when using SOIL. As far as I know, all you need to do with SOIL is load your texture which returns the ID, which in turn you can use with glBindTexture.

3. UV co-ordinates are parsed and are in the 3ds file.
[/quote]
Just make sure they are correct and you use them correctly. I see you allocating texel data as if it has 3 elements, yet in your drawing routine you say there are 2. Also I am not sure if you need to keep binding your buffers that way. (might be wrong on that one, not a complete openGL guru here).

Take baby steps when debugging, make sure all the data is as you expect it should be.

thanks reloaded_,
that actually makes a lot more sense than other feeback i've been getting.

okay so the texture get assigned to the model now but the co-ordinates do not match up to the model.
i have done a bit of modding of my source and i have come up with this:
[CODE]
void Object::applyTexture(const char*texfilename)
{

textureObject = SOIL_load_OGL_texture(texfilename,SOIL_LOAD_AUTO,SOIL_CREATE_NEW_ID,SOIL_FLAG_MIPMAPS);

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,textureObject);// use our newest texture
}

void Object::Draw() const
{



// Enable vertex, normal and texture-coordinate arrays.
glEnableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);
glEnableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);
glEnableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);



// Bind the VBO with the normals.
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_NormalVBO);
// The pointer for the normals is NULL which means that OpenGL will use the currently bound VBO.
glNormalPointer(GL_FLOAT, 0, NULL);

glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_TexCoordVBO);
glTexCoordPointer(3,GL_FLOAT,sizeof(Lib3dsVector), NULL);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_VertexVBO);
glVertexPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, NULL);
// Render the triangles.
glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, m_TotalFaces * 3);

glDisableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);
glDisableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);
glDisableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);
}
[/CODE]

im really stuck now as i want the texture map to match the object. currently it looks like this:

It's getting somewhere. You changed your texel data to a vector, which I am assuming has 3 components. UV coordinates mostly (if not always) come with 2 Components which was probably what your texel data has. Try changing your code to only us texel data where your texcoord data is concerned.

hmm, bringing it down to two components causes a crash at runtime.

I didn't tell you to remove if (mesh-texels)..., i told you to handle the case where texels is 0 allthough now it should most likely crash instead if you don't have texture data exported, (not really a good thing but atleast it rules out a lack of texturecoordinates as the source of the problem).

Have you tried drawing a quad using the texture ? does that look correct ? (if not its a problem with how you load the texture)
What does the teapot look like in your 3d modelling application ? (screenshots would be nice)
What does the teapot look like if you re-import the .3ds file in your 3d modelling application ? (again screenshots)

Did you try changing your UV coordinated from a 3 component container to a 2 component container (like I mentioned earlier)

[/quote]

yes i did but that just made it crash strangely, unless i did it wrong this is what it looked like:
[CODE]

Lib3dsTexel* texCoords = new Lib3dsTexel[m_TotalFaces * 2];

[/CODE]
then,

[CODE]memcpy(&texCoords[FinishedFaces*2 + i], mesh->texelL[face->points[ i ]], sizeof(Lib3dsTexel));[/CODE]

lastly,



[CODE]

glGenBuffers(1, &m_TexCoordVBO);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_TexCoordVBO);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(Lib3dsTexel) * 2 * m_TotalFaces, texCoords, GL_STATIC_DRAW);


[/CODE]

it generated a massive memory exception :(

That doesn't change the texture coordinate from 3 components to 2 components, that makes you only store texture coordinates for 2 of the 3 points on each triangle.

okay then, could you please tell me how to make it only 2 components?

      So it's been a while since I took a break from my whole creating a planet in DX11. Last time around I got stuck on fixing a nice LOD.
      A week back or so I got help to find this:
      https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD
      In general this is what I'm trying to recreate in DX11, he that made that planet LOD uses OpenGL but that is a minor issue and something I can solve. But I have a question regarding the code
      He gets the position using this row
      vec4d pos = b.var.vec4d["position"]; Which is then used further down when he sends the variable "center" into the drawing function:
      if (pos.len() < 1) pos.norm(); world::draw(vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z));  
      Inside the draw function this happens:
      draw_recursive(p3[0], p3[1], p3[2], center); Basically the 3 vertices of the triangle and the center of details that he sent as a parameter earlier: vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z)
      Now onto my real question, he does vec3d edge_center[3] = { (p1 + p2) / 2, (p2 + p3) / 2, (p3 + p1) / 2 }; to get the edge center of each edge, nothing weird there.
      But this is used later on with:
      vec3d d = center + edge_center[i]; edge_test[i] = d.len() > ratio_size; edge_test is then used to evaluate if there should be a triangle drawn or if it should be split up into 3 new triangles instead. Why is it working for him? shouldn't it be like center - edge_center or something like that? Why adding them togheter? I asume here that the center is the center of details for the LOD. the position of the camera if stood on the ground of the planet and not up int he air like it is now.

      Full code can be seen here:
      https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD/blob/master/src.simple/Main.cpp
      If anyone would like to take a look and try to help me understand this code I would love this person. I'm running out of ideas on how to solve this in my own head, most likely twisted it one time to many up in my head
      Thanks in advance

      I googled around but are unable to find source code or details of implementation.
      What keywords should I search for this topic?
      Things I would like to know:
      A. How to ensure that partially covered pixels are rasterized?
         Apparently by expanding each triangle by 1 pixel or so, rasterization problem is almost solved.
         But it will result in an unindexable triangle list without tons of overlaps. Will it incur a large performance penalty?
      B. A-buffer like bitmask needs a read-modiry-write operation.
         How to ensure proper synchronizations in GLSL?
         GLSL seems to only allow int32 atomics on image.
      C. Is there some simple ways to estimate coverage on-the-fly?
         In case I am to draw 2D shapes onto an exisitng target:
         1. A multi-pass whatever-buffer seems overkill.
         2. Multisampling could cost a lot memory though all I need is better coverage.
            Besides, I have to blit twice, if draw target is not multisampled.

      Hello

      I am working on a recent project and I have been learning how to code in C# using OpenGL libraries for some graphics. I have achieved some quite interesting things using TAO Framework writing in Console Applications, creating a GLUT Window. But my problem now is that I need to incorporate the Graphics in a Windows Form so I can relate the objects that I render with some .NET Controls.

      To deal with this problem, I have seen in some forums that it's better to use OpenTK instead of TAO Framework, so I can use the glControl that OpenTK libraries offer. However, I haven't found complete articles, tutorials or source codes that help using the glControl or that may insert me into de OpenTK functions. Would somebody please share in this forum some links or files where I can find good documentation about this topic? Or may I use another library different of OpenTK?

      Thanks!

      Hello, I have been working on SH Irradiance map rendering, and I have been using a GLSL pixel shader to render SH irradiance to 2D irradiance maps for my static objects. I already have it working with 9 3D textures so far for the first 9 SH functions.
      In my GLSL shader, I have to send in 9 SH Coefficient 3D Texures that use RGBA8 as a pixel format. RGB being used for the coefficients for red, green, and blue, and the A for checking if the voxel is in use (for the 3D texture solidification shader to prevent bleeding).
      My problem is, I want to knock this number of textures down to something like 4 or 5. Getting even lower would be a godsend. This is because I eventually plan on adding more SH Coefficient 3D Textures for other parts of the game map (such as inside rooms, as opposed to the outside), to circumvent irradiance probe bleeding between rooms separated by walls. I don't want to reach the 32 texture limit too soon. Also, I figure that it would be a LOT faster.
      Is there a way I could, say, store 2 sets of SH Coefficients for 2 SH functions inside a texture with RGBA16 pixels? If so, how would I extract them from inside GLSL? Let me know if you have any suggestions ^^.

      EDIT: I thought this was restricted to Attribute-Created GL contexts, but it isn't, so I rewrote the post.
      Hey guys, whenever I call SwapBuffers(hDC), I get a crash, and I get a "Too many posts were made to a semaphore." from Windows as I call SwapBuffers. What could be the cause of this?
      Update: No crash occurs if I don't draw, just clear and swap.
