      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.

loading FreeImage data into a direct3D9 surface/texture.

3 posts in this topic

I recently started to work on my own engine (again) and decided to use free image since it supports a ton of image formats. I suppose i managed to get it to work (doesn't crash) but nothing shows up.) I'm not sure what else there is to do with this. so here's my code.

[CODE]
// function to load an image.
bool ID3D9Image::loadImage(std::string imageName,
std::string fileName)
{
this->m_imageName = imageName;
// load image from file.
this->m_bitmap = FreeImage_Load(FIF_BMP,fileName.c_str(),BMP_DEFAULT);

if(!m_bitmap)
{
::FreeImage_SetOutputMessage(IrrGraphics::imageErrorChecker);
}
IDirect3DDevice9* dev = 0;
IrrGUI::IWindowUtility* winUtil = IrrGUI::IWindowUtility::getSingleton();
IRenderWindow* rWin = reinterpret_cast<IRenderWindow*>(winUtil->getWindow(0));
// get direct3D Device;
rWin->getCustomAttribute("DEVICE9",&dev);
if(dev)
{
// get the width of the created bitmap
this->m_width = FreeImage_GetWidth(m_bitmap);
this->m_height = FreeImage_GetHeight(m_bitmap);
HRESULT hr;
// create an offscreen plain surface.
hr = dev->CreateOffscreenPlainSurface(
m_width,
m_height,
D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8,
D3DPOOL_DEFAULT,
&this->m_imageSurface,
NULL);
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
std::string str = " ";
str += err;
throw IrrUtility::IException(IrrUtility::ET_APIERROR,str);
}
D3DLOCKED_RECT lockedRect;

hr = m_imageSurface->LockRect(&lockedRect,0,D3DLOCK_READONLY);
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
throw IException(ET_APIERROR,std::string(err));
}
// fill the surface with data from the image.
for(unsigned int i = 0; i < m_width; ++i)
{
for(unsigned int j = 0; j < m_height; ++j)
{
BYTE* imageData = (BYTE*)lockedRect.pBits;
int index = i * lockedRect.Pitch / 4 + j;
BYTE* bits = FreeImage_GetBits(m_bitmap);
int pitch = FreeImage_GetPitch(m_bitmap);
imageData[index] = reinterpret_cast<BYTE>(m_bitmap->data);
}
}
hr = m_imageSurface->UnlockRect();
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
throw IException(ET_APIERROR,std::string(err));
}
// FreeImage_Unload(m_bitmap);
}
return IImage::loadImage(m_imageName,fileName);
}
[/CODE]

as you can see from the code, i did as best as i could now trying updateSurface gave errors galour (during run time anyways).
please let me know if there's anything else you need.

it just occured to me that you probably don't see anything wrong with my code so i figure i'd post a screen shot. Oh and also, a new version of the loadImage function

[CODE]
// function to load an image.
bool ID3D9Image::loadImage(std::string imageName,
std::string fileName)
{
FREE_IMAGE_FORMAT fif;
fif = ::FreeImage_GetFileType(fileName.c_str(),0);
if(fif == FIF_UNKNOWN)
fif = FreeImage_GetFIFFromFilename(fileName.c_str());
this->m_imageName = imageName;
// load image from file.
this->m_bitmap = FreeImage_Load(fif,fileName.c_str());

if(!m_bitmap)
{
::FreeImage_SetOutputMessage(IrrGraphics::imageErrorChecker);
}
IDirect3DDevice9* dev = 0;
IrrGUI::IWindowUtility* winUtil = IrrGUI::IWindowUtility::getSingleton();
IRenderWindow* rWin = reinterpret_cast<IRenderWindow*>(winUtil->getWindow(0));
// get direct3D Device;
rWin->getCustomAttribute("DEVICE9",&dev);
if(dev)
{
// get the width of the created bitmap
this->m_width = FreeImage_GetWidth(m_bitmap);
this->m_height = FreeImage_GetHeight(m_bitmap);
BYTE* bits = FreeImage_GetBits(m_bitmap);
HRESULT hr;
// create an offscreen plain surface.
hr = dev->CreateOffscreenPlainSurface(
m_width,
m_height,
D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8,
D3DPOOL_SYSTEMMEM,
&this->m_imageSurface,
NULL);
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
std::string str = " ";
str += err;
throw IrrUtility::IException(IrrUtility::ET_APIERROR,str);
}
D3DLOCKED_RECT lockedRect;

hr = m_imageSurface->LockRect(&lockedRect,0,D3DLOCK_READONLY);
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
throw IException(ET_APIERROR,std::string(err));
}
// fill the surface with data from the image.
for(unsigned int i = 0; i < m_width; ++i)
{
for(unsigned int j = 0; j < m_height; ++j)
{
BYTE* imageData = (BYTE*)lockedRect.pBits;
int index = (i * lockedRect.Pitch) / 4 + j;
unsigned int red = FreeImage_GetRedMask(m_bitmap);
unsigned int green = FreeImage_GetGreenMask(m_bitmap);
unsigned int blue = FreeImage_GetBlueMask(m_bitmap);

int pitch = FreeImage_GetPitch(m_bitmap);
unsigned int data = reinterpret_cast<unsigned int>(m_bitmap->data);
RGBQUAD* rgb = FreeImage_GetPalette(m_bitmap);
unsigned int x = FreeImage_GetDotsPerMeterX(m_bitmap);
unsigned int y = FreeImage_GetDotsPerMeterY(m_bitmap);
imageData[index] = red++;
imageData[index] = green++;
imageData[index] = blue++;
//imageData[index] = red;
//imageData[index] = green;
//imageData[index] = blue;
// imageData[index] = red;
// imageData[index + (1 * pitch)] = green;
// imageData[index + (2 / pitch)] = blue;
}
}
hr = m_imageSurface->UnlockRect();
if(FAILED(hr))
{
const char* err = DXGetErrorDescription(hr);
throw IException(ET_APIERROR,std::string(err));
}
FreeImage_Unload(m_bitmap);
}
return IImage::loadImage(m_imageName,fileName);
}
[/CODE]

maybe im going about this the wrong why, i don't know. I suppose i can always use Direct3D's native surface loading functions and textures until i can figure out how to manipulate image data from FreeImage into a direct3D9 surface/texture.

1: You can't (usually) use system-memory textures when rendering with the GPU. Some professional hardware can do this, though, but not typical game gpus. If you enable the d3d debug output, it will warn about this.

2: Your texel address calculation is a bit odd. The correct byte address of a texel on a D3D surface is y * pitch + x * bytesPerTexel.

3: You seem to assume that pitch is exactly equal to 4*width; this is often an incorrect assumption, especially (but not limited to the case of) if the width of the image is not a power of two. Edited by Nik02

that still did not work.......*sigh* they have an OpenGL example but they never do a direct3D one when it comes to open source libraries
