      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.

Rotate Around Local Axis

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi, I want to implement some sort of rotation gizmo,everything works find until i came to this problem that i want my object to rotate around its local axis.
what i mean is when you rotate and object around x axis 90 degrees its local Y and Z axis axis also rotates, so i want to rotate based on these new axis.
here is what i done so far:

axisX = DirectX::XMVector3Transform(axisX,
AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetWorldMatrix());
axisX = DirectX::XMVector3Normalize(axisX);
 
DirectX::XMVECTOR axisY = DirectX::XMVectorSet(0, 1, 0, 1);
axisY = DirectX::XMVector3Transform(axisY,
AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetWorldMatrix());
axisY = DirectX::XMVector3Normalize(axisY);
 
DirectX::XMVECTOR axisZ = DirectX::XMVectorSet(0, 0, 1, 1);
axisZ = DirectX::XMVector3Transform(axisZ,
AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetWorldMatrix());
axisZ = DirectX::XMVector3Normalize(axisZ);

What above code do is rotate each axis based on object rotation. when i draw  a line for each axis they are in correct direction but when i try to rotate around them everything goes wrong!

here is what i do to rotate:

AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetRotation()->m_x += (axisInObject.m128_f32[0] * angle * axisX.m128_f32[0]);


AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetRotation()->m_y += (axisInObject.m128_f32[0] * angle * axisX.m128_f32[1]);


AngelCore::AngelSubSystem::SubSystemManager::GetInstance()->GetActorFactory()->
GetActors()[0]
->GetComponent<AngelCore::AngelWorldSystem::Transform>()->GetRotation()->m_z += (axisInObject.m128_f32[0] * angle * axisX.m128_f32[2]);

Above code is just for axis X. but its not working! what is wrong with that?

note that "axisInObject" is direction where user dragged mouse after click on axis X of rotation gizmo and angle is how many degrees he or she rotates that.

thanks.

I don't have time to read through the code right now, but what determines whether you rotate on the global or local axis is the order of multiplication between the world matrix and the rotation matrix. Switch the order of multiplication if it's not working the way you want.

 

I happen to be on the wrong computer right now where I can't get to my own source code to find an example, but you may want to download and look at my DX11 3D "engine". That code does local rotations. It's on my website at VirtuallyProgramming.com and has the full VS project including shader code, Python Blender exporter code to export models, art assets, etc. available in one download file. So, there's a lot to look at there for examples. And with a bit of work it should compile although it's coded for Windows 7 and not Windows 8 or Windows 10 (which have to be coded slightly different). Still rotations are the same no matter what environment you are in.

 

You may also want to watch my vector and matrix videos on my YouTube channel probably in that order if you are not super familiar with those Linear Algebra topics.

 

I wish I were on my computer where I could copy and paste a code example, but it would have been from the code I linked above anyway. But the bottom line is that you just have to reverse the order of multiplication. When that is not possible, usually because you are using someone else's library that doesn't allow you to do the math yourself, there is a work around that works fine. And that is to move the object to the center (origin), do the rotation, and then move it back to where it was. Works like a charm and you do it in a single frame, so it is undetectable to the user. That always works too.
