      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.

2D texture does not render correctly.

8 posts in this topic

hi,

i am writing a fractal program. i want to load a png file as a splash screen. i used texture 2d to read and display on the screen. i suspect the loadTexture2D function do not work correctly. i hope some one can point out what i do wrong.

thanks.

hi

please note: the top of the window shows some random colors.

for moderator: i got a message from my last post that i should use the red {...} when including source codes, how do i do that? click the {...} before or after pasting the code into the editor?

thanks

[CODE]
fread( data, 1, width * height * 3, file );
fclose( file );
[/CODE]

Here's your problem, you can't read directly from a png file, it's compressed. You need to decompress it first in order to get any useful data. I would recommend using an image loading library like [url="http://freeimage.sourceforge.net/"]FreeImage[/url] or [url="http://www.lonesock.net/soil.html"]SOIL[/url].

thanks icOde.

i wonder whether it is compatible with msvc 2010 c++? i tried to load the sln file into vc 2010, but it failed. Edited by nickme

Which one did you use SOIL or FreeImage? SOIL worked fine for me in vc 2010. You need to compile the VC9 project included with the download, that will generate a static .lib file which you can then link with your code.

hi icOde:

i tried freeimage. it includes several sln files. from ver vc 2003 to vc 2008. i tried the vc 2008 sln, but vc 2010 said the file is not loaded in the solution explorer.

by the way, do you have any link to website that shows how to install the freeImage to vc 2010?

thanks Edited by nickme

for freeimage just download "FreeImage DLL" from their site include FreeImage.h link FreeImage.lib and put FreeImage.dll in the same folder as your exe. Documentation for FreeImage can be found here : [url="http://iweb.dl.sourceforge.net/project/freeimage/Source%20Documentation/3.15.4/FreeImage3154.pdf."]http://freeimage.sou...umentation.html[/url]
If you don't know how to link libraries in vs 2010 then I would suggest googling it or opening a new topic. Edited by ic0de

hi icOde:

i downloaded the freeImage and looked at it, it did not contain all the libraries that was mentioned in the sites that i googled. when i tried to build the vs c++ 2010, the solution explorer say it is unavailable.

i can not find the vc9 file you mentioned from the download file either. i suspect the version that i download is not the one you use. the version i download was 3.15.4.

i also found freeImagePlus. are they related?

thanks Edited by nickme
