      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.

Problems rendering texture on a mesh

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

my problem is that for some reason my texture gets twisted from two sides of a cube. I load a cube from .OBJ file and the data seems to be valid. I have tested .OBJ file with another application, wich renders the cube correctly. With both applications I get same result after loading the OBJ-file, but my application doesn't render it correctly. Mysterious part is that only two sides of the cube is rendered incorrectly but four other sides looks ok. I have attached pictures from cube as well.

Work order of loading and setuping the mesh:

1. Get position data and texture position data from OBJ-file

2. Get indices of vertices

3. Setup vertex and index buffers

4. Load and setup texture

Any ideas what might cause this error?

at my case mostly it occur about vertex declarion about buffer and shader ...

 

of vertex buffer's structure..

 

and you must use PIX for this kind of problem..

 

It's in DX sdk

Check the texture coordinates for the faces that are rendering wrong. The suggestion of using pix for this is good as well as it can show you at which coordinates a texture is being sampled.

And thanks for suggesting PIX debugging tool. I have to look how to use it.

I added a debug photo and it seems that texture coordinates are actually wrong. Some of those coordinates don't match.

When I delete discontinuous uv map values, the box looks like the above pictures (with the two opposite sides along the z-axis distorted). You'll have to duplicate/unweld vertices with identical positions, but individual (per face) uv coordinates. That is, faces that refer to the same vertex, but have a value on a different uv chart, need to be assigned a copy of the vertex with their own specific uvs.

Thanks eppo. I noticed the problem. I assigned correct position data but wrong tu tv coordinates so I have to fix my algorithm. I think this will solve my problem.

Thanks eppo. I noticed the problem. Position data was correct but I loaded wrong tu and tv coordinate so I have to fix my algorithm. I think this will fix my problem.
