      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.

Deferred decal and texel offset

3 posts in this topic

I have implemented the deferred decal this weekend, I'm using Direct3D9 and hacked the depth buffer as a rendertexture(FOURCC('I','N','T','Z')).Every decal is a cube box.To find the uv coordinate of decal pixels,I have to sample the depth texture and caculate the world position of each pixel,then transform the position to decal space. My problem is, when I have an object in front of the decal,there will be some bright edges around the object.It seems that the depth result on the edge is not currect. I've tried to add 0.5 pixel offset, but it not works.Can someone help me?

Can you post up the code for how you calculate the screen-space texture-coordinates from vertices ([i]with and without your not-working 0.5 fix[/i])?
[/quote]

here is my code
[CODE]
void VolumeDecl_vp(
float4 iPosition:POSITION,
out float4 oUV:TEXCOORD0,
out float4 oPos:TEXCOORD1,
out float4 oPosition:POSITION
)
{
iPosition = mul(iPosition,WorldMatrix);

oPosition = mul(iPosition,ViewProj);
float2 tPos = oPosition.xy/oPosition.w;
float2 vPos = float2(0.5*tPos.x,-0.5*tPos.y)+float2(0.5+0.5/screenSize.x,0.5+0.5/screenSize.y);
oUV = float4(vPos,0,1)*oPosition.w;
oPos = oPosition;
}
[/CODE]

In the pixel shader I use oUV.xy/oUV.w as texture coordinate.

[CODE]
void VolumeDecl_fp(
float4 iUV : TEXCOORD0,
float4 iPos : TEXCOORD1,
out float4 oColor : COLOR
)
{
float2 spos = float2(iPos.x / iPos.w, iPos.y / iPos.w);
float2 uv = iUV.xy/iUV.w;

float depth = tex2Dlod(depthTex,float4(uv,0,0)).r;

float4 pos=mul(float4(spos,depth,1),InverseViewProj);
pos.xyz/=pos.w;
pos.w = 1.f;

float4 tPos = mul(pos,DeclMat);
float3 uvw = float3(tPos.x,tPos.y,tPos.z);

uvw.x = (uvw.x + 1.f) * 0.5f;
uvw.y = 0.5f - uvw.y * 0.5f;
uvw.z = (uvw.z + 1.f) * 0.5f;
clip(uvw.xyz);
clip(1 - uvw.xyz);

oColor = tex2D(decalTex,float2(uvw.x*DeclParam.z + DeclParam.x,uvw.y*DeclParam.w + DeclParam.y));
}
[/CODE]

I found that the bright color of edge was came from the transparent part of my decal texture,when I changed the transparent part color to black,the egde became grey. Edited by dragon.R

could be values outside of the volume.



// Points outside the light volume are in projection.
if( [color="#000000"]spos [/color].x < -1.0f || [color="#000000"]spos [/color].x > 1.0f ||
[color="#000000"]spos [/color].y < -1.0f || [color="#000000"]spos [/color].y > 1.0f ||
[color="#000000"]spos [/color].z < 0.0f )
{
not in the volume here;

}
else
