      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.

Verlet physics

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys!
I was read this article on this site
[url="http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/technical/math-and-physics/a-verlet-based-approach-for-2d-game-physics-r2714"]http://www.gamedev.n...e-physics-r2714[/url]

And I wondered, what if upgrade it for experiment?
i downloaded it and decided to add friction.

But I did not understand how to do it correctly. We can replace the speed of this[b] [color=#ff0000]-k*N+OldVelocity[/color][/b][color=#ff0000];[/color]
[color=#000000]where N as I understood the normalized velocity (well, more multiplied by -1 is not?)[/color]

Well, add a small fix that would not work, that the infinite is force the body begins to move in the opposite direction
[b][color=#ff0000]VelNew = max(-k*N+OldVelocity, 0.0f)[/color][/b]

how to modify this method (if not this one?) to get the friction?
[source lang="cpp"]void Physics::UpdateVerlet() { //????????? ????????? ??????
for( int I = 0; I < VertexCount; I++ ) {
Vertex& V = *Vertices[ I ];

Vec2 OldPosition = V.Position;
V.Position += V.Position-V.OldPosition + V.Acceleration*Timestep*Timestep;
V.OldPosition = OldPosition;

}
}[/source]

Hi,
Here you can add the damping, but friction is related to the contact between two bodies.
So you could add :
[source lang="java"]V.Position += (V.Position-V.OldPosition) * damping + V.Acceleration*Timestep*Timestep;[/source]

The friction will change the acceleration "V.Acceleration" in function of the contact normal.

Hope it can help...

Thanks, but it's not work true

Once you have calculated the force due to friction, you divide by the mass to get the acceleration (a deceleration in this case) due to friction. This is then added to the acceleration before you perform an iteration of the verlet solver (or any other solver for the equations of motion). So your Physics::UpdateVerlet() method should not have to change. How you actually model friction is up to you. One simple model is to have the magnitude of friction be proportional to that of the perpendicular component of the contact force of the two bodies (so proportional to the weight -- the effect of mass due to gravity -- of a body if it is sitting on a flat surface). Any introductory book on Newtonian mechanics is likely to explain this model.
