      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.

porting from es2.0 to gl4.1 but not rendering.

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to port a game of mine from android to the pc(linux), the following code is used to draw a 2d sprite, and works in android,

 

this is the render code, shader is a wrapper class for shader handling.

	GLfloat verts[] =
	{
		position.x, position.y + size.y, 0.0f, src.left, src.bottom,
		position.x, position.y, 0.0f, src.left, src.top,
		position.x + size.x, position.y + size.y, 0.0f, src.right, src.bottom,
		position.x + size.x, position.y, 0.0f, src.right, src.top
	};

	GLushort indices[] = {0, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3};

	Matrix4f p;

	if(rotation != 0.0f)
	{
		Matrix4f rotmat, trans;

		trans.Translate(Vector3f(-rotpos.x, -rotpos.y, 0.0f));
		rotmat.RotationZ(RAD(rotation));
		rotmat = trans * rotmat;
		trans.Translate(Vector3f(rotpos.x, rotpos.y, 0.0f));
		p = trans * rotmat;
	}

	Matrix4f mpv = Graphics::GetOrtho();
	p = mpv * p;

	shader->Use();

	int loc = shader->GetUniformLocation("intexture");
	texture->Use();
	shader->Uniform1i(loc, 0);


	loc = shader->GetUniformLocation("mpv");
	shader->UniformMatrix(loc, p);
	
	loc = shader->GetUniformLocation("color");
	shader->UniformVec4(loc, color);

	glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);
	glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);

	glEnableVertexAttribArray(0);
	glEnableVertexAttribArray(1);

	glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(float) * 5, verts);
	glVertexAttribPointer(1, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(float) * 5, &verts[3]);

	glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, 6, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, indices);

vertex shader

#version 410

attribute vec4 vPosition;
attribute vec2 vTexCoord;

varying vec2 fTexCoord;

uniform mat4 mpv;
uniform vec4 color;

void main()
{
	gl_Position = vPosition * mpv;
	fTexCoord = vTexCoord;
}

fragment shader

#version 410

//precision mediump float;

varying vec2 fTexCoord;

uniform sampler2D intexture;
uniform vec4 color;

void main()
{
	gl_FragColor = texture2D(intexture, fTexCoord) * color;	
}

Any help would be gratefull.

Thanks.

You should use in and out instead of attribute and varying, because those are deprecated. Also gl_FragColor is deprecated in the fragment shader after glsl 120, you should declare your own out vec4 for it, for example "out vec4 output_color". Have you checked for shader errors?

opengl logs dont show any shader errors, ive made changes but still nothing.

#version 410

in vec4 vPosition;
in vec2 vTexCoord;

out vec2 fTexCoord;

uniform mat4 mpv;
uniform vec4 color;

void main()
{
	gl_Position = vPosition * mpv;
	fTexCoord = vTexCoord;
}

#version 410

//precision mediump float;

in vec2 fTexCoord;
out vec4 output_color;

uniform sampler2D intexture;
uniform vec4 color;

void main()
{
	output_color = (texture(intexture, fTexCoord) * color).rgba; 
}

thanks.

Oh, just noticed that you also do "gl_Position = vPosition * mpv", it should probably be "gl_Position = mpv * vPosition". And by opengl logs, do you mean that you're using glGetProgramInfoLog? It really didn't tell any warnings or errors about those?

Your CPU side code does not show what values is being assigned to the uniform associated "color" in the shader.

I'm assuming 

 loc = shader->GetUniformLocation("color"); shader->UniformVec4(loc, color);

set the uniform values, in which case what are the values in color ?

yes nothing from glGetProgramInfoLog.

color = Vector4f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);

 

yes those read and set the location of the Uniforms

 

and heres the locations set for the attributes.

		shader = Resource::Instance()->GetAssetShader(L"textureshader");
		shader->BindAttribLocation(0, "vPosition");
		shader->BindAttribLocation(1, "vTexCoord");
		shader->Link();

seems like I’ve made some progress, I was rendering without buffers in gles, seems like I cant do that in gl.

 

thanks for your help all.
