      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.

Ortho Shadow Problem.

2 posts in this topic

"Sorry for my bad English..."

I made a shadow shader for my project.
When I use Perspective projection when rendering Depth buffer(Shadow map), there is no problem..
But when I simply switch to the Ortho Projection, every fragment become black. (I mean under shadow..)

I didn't understand why.

Here is the screenshots: (Sorry for the textures :D )
With Perspective:
[CODE]
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glLoadIdentity();
gluPerspective(60.0f, (float)(displayWidth) / (float)(displayHeight), 1.0f, 1000.0f);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();
gluLookAt(position_x, position_y, position_z, lookAt_x, lookAt_y, lookAt_z, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0);
[/CODE]

But with Orthographic mode:
(Also a debug window at right top corner that shows depth texture.)


[CODE]
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glLoadIdentity();
glOrtho(-10, 10,-10, 10, -1.0, 100.0f);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();
gluLookAt(position_x, position_y, position_z, lookAt_x, lookAt_y, lookAt_z, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0);[/CODE]

Also my shaders:
Fragment:

[CODE]
uniform sampler2DShadow ShadowMap;
uniform sampler2D textureSampler;

uniform vec4 LightColor;

varying vec4 ShadowCoord;
varying vec2 TexCoord0;
varying vec3 WorldNormal;
varying vec3 LightDir;

float xPixelOffset = 1.0 / (1366.0 * 1.0);
float yPixelOffset = 1.0 / (768.0 * 1.0);

float lookup(vec2 offSet)
{
return shadow2DProj(ShadowMap, ShadowCoord + vec4(offSet.x * xPixelOffset * ShadowCoord.w, offSet.y * yPixelOffset * ShadowCoord.w, 0.005, 0.0) ).w;
}

void main()
{
vec3 FinalDiffuse = vec3(0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
vec3 AmbientLight = vec3(0.0, 0.1, 0.1);
vec4 TexColor = vec4(texture2D(textureSampler, TexCoord0));
float shadow;
float attenuation;

float LenSq = length(LightDir);
vec3 N = normalize(WorldNormal);
vec3 L = normalize(LightDir);

float lambertTerm = max(dot(N, L), 0.0);
attenuation = min((LightColor.w * LightColor.w) / (LenSq * LenSq), 1.0);
FinalDiffuse += LightColor * lambertTerm;// * attenuation;

if (ShadowCoord.w > 1.0)
{
float x,y;
for (y = -1.5 ; y <=1.5 ; y+=1.0)
for (x = -1.5 ; x <=1.5 ; x+=1.0)
shadow += lookup(vec2(x,y));

shadow /= 16.0 ;
}

FinalDiffuse *= shadow;

vec4 outColor = vec4(vec3(TexColor.xyz * (FinalDiffuse + AmbientLight.xyz)) , TexColor.a);
gl_FragColor = outColor;
}[/CODE]


And Vertex Shader:
[CODE]
varying vec3 WorldNormal;
varying vec4 ShadowCoord;
varying vec2 TexCoord0;
varying vec3 LightDir;
uniform vec4 LightPosition;
void main()
{
ShadowCoord = gl_TextureMatrix[7] * gl_Vertex;
gl_Position = ftransform();//gl_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * gl_Vertex;
vec4 WorldPos = gl_ModelViewMatrix * gl_Vertex;
WorldNormal = gl_NormalMatrix * gl_Normal;
LightDir = vec3(LightPosition - WorldPos);
TexCoord0 = vec2(gl_TextureMatrix[0] * gl_MultiTexCoord0);
gl_FrontColor = gl_Color;
}
[/CODE]

Any ideas?? [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]
Or need more info?? [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img] Edited by FreOzgur

First you put -1 into your ortho which is impossible and I'd try that first. The result of being able to draw something behind your eyeball sounds random to me.

No there is no problem [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] ( -1 into ortho is possible.)
But I solved.. with a new shader code [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]


[CODE]
uniform sampler2D ShadowMap;
uniform sampler2D textureSampler;
uniform vec4 LightColor;
varying vec4 ShadowCoord;
varying vec2 TexCoord0;
varying vec3 WorldNormal;
varying vec3 LightDir;
vec4 DividedShadowCoord;
float xPixelOffset = 1.0 / (1366.0 * 1.0);
float yPixelOffset = 1.0 / (768.0 * 1.0);
float lookup(vec2 offSet)
{
return texture2D(ShadowMap, DividedShadowCoord + vec4(offSet.x * xPixelOffset , offSet.y * yPixelOffset, 0.0, 0.0) ).z;
}
void main()
{
vec3 FinalDiffuse = vec3(0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
vec3 AmbientLight = vec3(0.0, 0.1, 0.1);
vec4 TexColor = vec4(texture2D(textureSampler, TexCoord0));
float shadow;
float attenuation;
DividedShadowCoord = ShadowCoord;
DividedShadowCoord = DividedShadowCoord / DividedShadowCoord.w;
DividedShadowCoord.z += 0.00005;
float LenSq = length(LightDir);
vec3 N = normalize(WorldNormal);
vec3 L = normalize(LightDir);
float lambertTerm = max(dot(N, L), 0.0);
attenuation = min((LightColor.w * LightColor.w) / (LenSq * LenSq), 1.0);
FinalDiffuse += LightColor * lambertTerm;// * attenuation;
if (DividedShadowCoord.w > 0.0)
{
float x,y;
for (y = -1.5 ; y <=1.5 ; y+=1.0)
for (x = -1.5 ; x <=1.5 ; x+=1.0)
shadow += lookup(vec2(x,y)) < DividedShadowCoord.z ? 0.0 : 1.0 ;
shadow /= 16.0 ;
}
FinalDiffuse *= shadow;
vec4 outColor = vec4(vec3(/*TexColor.xyz **/ (FinalDiffuse + AmbientLight.xyz)) , TexColor.a);
gl_FragColor = outColor;
}
[/CODE]

Now working perfectly.. Edited by FreOzgur
