      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.

Hello every one , 

In previous post "http://www.gamedev.net/topic/640972-skinned-animation-problem/"I faced problem related to rotation the weapon around the with the camera and position the weapon in front of camera  , I solve it by :


1 : Before export the Model from Blender , I first make sure to position it in (0,0,0) , then make sure it's up axis is Y-axis and make sure it face x-axis .

but the problem now is :
1 :  When I make rotation around the pitch axis it did not behave pretty and good .
2 : When I make rotation around the pitch axis by 180 I see the model hands in front of my camera !! how and see through the Weapon and hand.

This is the edited code : 

 

Vector3 forward = cci.Camera.WorldMatrix.Forward + new Vector3(0, -5, 0);
            Matrix translatePlayer = Matrix.CreateTranslation(cci.Camera.WorldMatrix.Translation+ forward);
            Matrix scalePlayer = Matrix.CreateScale(0.05f);
            Matrix rotatePlayer = Matrix.CreateFromAxisAngle(cci.Camera.WorldMatrix.Left,
                cci.Camera.Pitch) * Matrix.CreateFromAxisAngle(Vector3.Up, cci.Camera.Yaw);
            staticModel.Transform = scalePlayer * rotatePlayer * translatePlayer ;

 

and here 2 explanation photos :
1 : When start the game :

2 : After I make rotation around the y-axis for example 130 degree then I make rotation around the pitch axis by 30 degree see what happens :

Hello again , I solve the rotation problem by :

            Vector3 forward = cci.Camera.WorldMatrix.Forward + new Vector3(0, -1, 0);

            if (cci.Camera.Pitch <= MathHelper.ToRadians(-40))
            {
                cci.Camera.Pitch += MathHelper.ToRadians(1);
            }
            if (cci.Camera.Pitch >= MathHelper.ToRadians(40))
            {
                cci.Camera.Pitch -= MathHelper.ToRadians(1);
            }

            Matrix translatePlayer = Matrix.CreateTranslation(cci.Camera.WorldMatrix.Translation + forward);
            Matrix scalePlayer = Matrix.CreateScale(0.05f);

            Matrix rotatePlayer = Matrix.CreateRotationX(cci.Camera.Pitch) *
                Matrix.CreateFromAxisAngle(Vector3.Up, cci.Camera.Yaw);
            staticModel.Transform = scalePlayer * rotatePlayer * translatePlayer ;    

 

but , all what I want is to prevent hands to be visible when rotating down , I try this code  and did not works good ? so any solutions or suggestion ?

 



            if (cci.Camera.Pitch <= MathHelper.ToRadians(-40))
            {
                cci.Camera.Pitch += MathHelper.ToRadians(1);
            }
            if (cci.Camera.Pitch >= MathHelper.ToRadians(40))
            {
                cci.Camera.Pitch -= MathHelper.ToRadians(1);
            }

It might be a good idea to read up on nested transformation spaces. Link.

 

This can be solved a lot easier by parenting the gun to the hand by transforming its local transformation by the hand's world transform.

 

Matrix gunWorld = gunLocal * handWorld. (where handWorld = handLocal * playerWorld).

 

The camera can then be attached to the gun: cameraWorld = cameraLocal * gunWorld. -> cameraView = inverse(cameraWorld).

I see through hands !!! this is my problem  ? so any suggestions how to play with the pitch or other transformation to prevent this ?

Decrease your near clip plane.

Also, your model must be "properly" designed for first person view, if not you might need to reposition it a little bit down so that there is a small chance to intersects with your near clip plane.
