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.

adress mode issues

0 posts in this topic

hi,

iam currently having some issues with my sample texture to wrap proper on my geodesic sphere, actually it seems like the address mode of my sampler doesnt works. I need the texture to repeat on the other side of the sphere, so i assigned a wrap samplerstate:
D3D11_SAMPLER_DESC samplerdesc = D3D11_SAMPLER_DESC();ZeroMemory( &samplerdesc, sizeof(samplerdesc) );samplerdesc.AddressU = D3D11_TEXTURE_ADDRESS_MODE::D3D11_TEXTURE_ADDRESS_WRAP;samplerdesc.AddressV = D3D11_TEXTURE_ADDRESS_MODE::D3D11_TEXTURE_ADDRESS_WRAP;samplerdesc.Filter = D3D11_FILTER::D3D11_FILTER_ANISOTROPIC;device->CreateSamplerState(&samplerdesc,&sampstate);////////////////////////////////immediatecontext->PSSetSamplers(0,1,&sampstate);immediatecontext->VSSetSamplers(0,1,&sampstate);
Shadercode:
Texture2D<float4> Textur : register(t0);sampler sampler1 : register(s0);cbuffer Matrix : register( b0 ){	row_major matrix World;	row_major matrix View;	row_major matrix Projection;};struct VS_INPUT{    float4 Pos : POSITION;    float2 texcoord : TEXCOORD;};struct PS_INPUT{    float4 Pos : SV_POSITION;    float2 texcoord : TEXCOORD;};//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------// Vertex Shader//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------PS_INPUT VS( VS_INPUT input ){    PS_INPUT output = (PS_INPUT)0;    output.Pos = mul(input.Pos,World);    output.Pos = mul(output.Pos,View);    output.Pos = mul(output.Pos,Projection);    output.texcoord = input.texcoord;    return output;}//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------// Pixel Shader//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------float4 PS( PS_INPUT input) : SV_Target{	float4 ret = Textur.Sample(sampler1,input.texcoord);	return ret;}
Is there a problem with the shader itself?


The resolution of the image is 512X512, so there shouldnt be a problem with it?[attachment=12894:merkurfail.PNG]

the u coordinate ranges from 0 to 2, and the white strip has nothing to do with the texture, will replace it soon

edit:




Its working now, i missed to set the addressmode w parameter in the samplerstate, but i have another question anyway.
While searching in the internet i saw this code snippet:
Texture2D Textur : register(t0);
SamplerState sampler1 : register(s0);


while i used this one:
Texture2D<float4> Textur : register(t0);
sampler sampler1 : register(s0);

both is working but where is the difference, besides the float4 telling hlsl the format. Edited by directx user
