      Hello all,
      My question is a bit hard to describe but hopefully it will do...
      I just wonder what you guys think is the 'best' way of getting info about the model in your view(s)..
      To clearify (i hope ;-) )
      If the model is updating itself every game-cycle and the  (deep) nested objects all do there jobs how do you get info where only the view is interested in?
      So my question is not how to do it but more what do you people think is the best way to do it ?
       
      Regards,

      Hi all,
      I have written a nice(ish) looking game of solitaire in Windows Forms, using VB.NET and Visual Studio 2015. It allows the player to play the game, and if their score is in the top 10, it saves the username and score o a leaderboard (saved in a text file so it is non-volatile). My next goal is to let the user know if the hand they are dealt is playable, but I'm not sure on the most efficient way of achieving this. I'm working on time complexity over space complexity! It's a simple game to code, but not an easy one to find the solution.
      Do you know of any algorithms that may achieve this goal that I would be able to look at?

      Sorry for making a new thread about this, but I have a specific question which I couldn't find an answer to in any of the other threads I've looked at.
      I've been trying to get the method shown here to work several days now and I've run out of things to try.
      I've more or less resorted to using the barebones example shown there (with some very minor modifications as it wouldn't run otherwise), but I still can't get it to work. Either I have misunderstood something completely, or there's a mistake somewhere.
       
      My shader code looks like this:
      Vertex shader:
      #version 330 core //Vertex shader //Half the size of the near plane {tan(fovy/2.0) * aspect, tan(fovy/2.0) } uniform vec2 halfSizeNearPlane; layout (location = 0) in vec3 clipPos; //UV for the depth buffer/screen access. //(0,0) in bottom left corner (1, 1) in top right corner layout (location = 1) in vec2 texCoord; out vec3 eyeDirection; out vec2 uv; void main() { uv = texCoord; eyeDirection = vec3((2.0 * halfSizeNearPlane * texCoord) - halfSizeNearPlane , -1.0); gl_Position = vec4(clipPos.xy, 0, 1); } Fragment shader:
      #version 330 core //Fragment shader layout (location = 0) out vec3 fragColor; in vec3 eyeDirection; in vec2 uv; uniform mat4 persMatrix; uniform vec2 depthrange; uniform sampler2D depth; vec4 CalcEyeFromWindow(in float windowZ, in vec3 eyeDirection, in vec2 depthrange) { float ndcZ = (2.0 * windowZ - depthrange.x - depthrange.y) / (depthrange.y - depthrange.x); float eyeZ = persMatrix[3][2] / ((persMatrix[2][3] * ndcZ) - persMatrix[2][2]); return vec4(eyeDirection * eyeZ, 1); } void main() { vec4 eyeSpace = CalcEyeFromWindow(texture(depth, uv).x, eyeDirection, depthrange); fragColor = eyeSpace.rbg; } Where my camera settings are: float fov = glm::radians(60.0f); float aspect = 800.0f / 600.0f; And my uniforms equal: uniform mat4 persMatrix = glm::perspective(fov, aspect, 0.1f, 100.0f) uniform vec2 halfSizeNearPlane = glm::vec2(glm::tan(fov/2.0) * aspect, glm::tan(fov/2.0)) uniform vec2 depthrange = glm::vec2(0.0f, 1.0f) uniform sampler2D depth is a GL_DEPTH24_STENCIL8 texture which has depth values from an earlier pass (if I linearize it and set fragColor = vec3(linearizedZ), it shows up like it should, so nothing seems wrong there).
      I can confirm that it's wrong because it doesn't give me similar results to what saving position in the G-buffer or reconstructing using inverse matrices does.
      Is there something obvious I'm missing? To me the logic seems sound, and from the description on the Khronos wiki I can't see where I go wrong.
      Thanks!

      Hello,  I am researcher from University of Phoenix. I have received permission from this site to post about permission to recruit subjects for participation in a study entitled Cyber Threats to Online Gaming and Education: A Delphi Study. The purpose of the study is to find out what current and future measures might be taken to eliminate or reduce organizational risks when using MMORPGs while still allowing organizations to use this powerful tool.
       I need a minimum of  10, maximum of 20 participants/game developers to contribute to my study. I need the expert opinion of game developers on what they think needs to be done to make MMORPG's secure. The game developers do not need to be MMORPG game developers, just game developers. The study will be completely anonymous, no identifying information will be used in the study. The participants will have to sign a permission slip and an informed consent slip which I will be the only one that will have access to. If anyone is interested in this PLEASE send me a message ASAP as time is of the essence. The study should not take up much of your time each day (maybe 10 15 mins max depending on you) and should not last too long ( maybe a week or two depending on how long it takes all participants to send me their data). As stated above the study will be a Delphi study, which means that all participants will answer a series of questions on a questionnaire for three rounds, those answers will then be sent to me, I will analyze the answers/data and send out the next round of questions and repeat the process until round three is finished.  I will start out with 5 of the 20 participants to conduct a pilot study, this will be used to construct the questionnaire that all of the participants will answer. once the Pilot study is finished the actual study will start. all communication for the study will be via email of SurveyMonkey website.

      Thank you for your time

      A big game project contains a lot of runtime data like
      List of all world objects List of all players Game states Viewport ... I have to pass a lot of these data to most of my classes. So I have a huge list of parameters in every constructor.
      What's the best practice to avoid this mass of parameters? Is it recommended to summarize all data to one class (something like "GameData") and pass this container to all methods and classes? Is there a common name for this container in game development? I'm a bit worried, because if I pass this class to all classes and methods, I get something like a global variable.
      Thanks a lot for your advice!
