      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.

mistake with textures coord

1 post in this topic

I have the vertex structure
[CODE]struct Vertex
{
GLfloat x, y;
GLfloat r, g, b, a;
GLfloat tu, tv;
};

#define VERTEX_ARRAY 0
#define VERTEXCOLOR_ARRAY 1
#define TEXCOORD_ARRAY 2

[/CODE]

I use it for draw 2D primitives.
test platform - Samsung Galaxy Tab

today I lunch app on the Sumsung Galaxy S II
I am in shock - there x/y is texture coord and tu/tv is world coordinats. They are reversed!!!

this is my shader

[CODE]
attribute vec4 vPosition;
attribute mediump vec4 vColor;
attribute mediump vec2 uv;
varying mediump vec4 vVertexColor;
varying mediump vec2 myTexCoord;
void main()
{
gl_Position = vPosition;
vVertexColor = vColor;
myTexCoord = uv;
}
[/CODE]
[CODE]
precision mediump float;
uniform sampler2D sampler2d;
varying mediump vec4 vVertexColor;
varying mediump vec2 myTexCoord;
void main()
{
gl_FragColor = texture2D( sampler2d, myTexCoord) * vVertexColor ;
}
[/CODE]


this is render function for draw all primitives

[CODE]
glBindBuffer( GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexBuffer );// Bind the VBO.
glBufferSubData( GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0, m_CurrentVertexIndex * g_ui32VertexStride, vertices );

glEnableVertexAttribArray( VERTEX_ARRAY );
glVertexAttribPointer( VERTEX_ARRAY, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, g_ui32VertexStride, 0 );

glEnableVertexAttribArray( VERTEXCOLOR_ARRAY );
glVertexAttribPointer( VERTEXCOLOR_ARRAY, 4, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, g_ui32VertexStride, (void*) (2 * sizeof(GLfloat) ) );

glEnableVertexAttribArray( TEXCOORD_ARRAY );
glVertexAttribPointer( TEXCOORD_ARRAY, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, g_ui32VertexStride, (void*) (6 * sizeof(GLfloat) ) );

glBindBuffer( GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indexBuffer );
glDrawElements( GL_TRIANGLES, 3 * m_RenderTriangleCount, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, (void*)0);
[/CODE]

How to fix it? How to setup for GL that first is world coord, next is color and next is texture coord? Edited by progman_rus

Your code is hard coding that the position attribute array is located at slot 0, the color attribute array is at slot 1, and the texture texture coordinate attribute array is at slot 2. You must ensure that you actually bind the attributes to the correct slots. You have three basic options:[list=1]
[*]Explicitly specify the slot in the shader source. Define your attributes as [i]attribute (location=n) vec4 vPosition[/i].
[*]Force the location of an attribute to a specific slot. Check out the function [i]glBindAttribLocation[/i].
[*]Query the shader for the location, and bind attributes to that location. Check out the function [i]glGetAttribLocation[/i].
[/list]
I am not sure about the syntax in point 1 though. The [i]n[/i] is the slot you want to force the attribute to.

What is possibly happening in your code is that you assume that position is at slot 0, color is at slot 1 and texture coordinate is at slot 2, but after compiling the shader the slots may in fact be in the opposite order. If you then bind the position attribute to slot 0 without verifying that position is, in fact, at slot 0, then the position attribute may be bound to the wrong attribute in the shader.
