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.

  1. But, It should be the opposite. If damperForce is >0 then the vehicle is more stable...   The code: // UNITY 5.4.0 //Constant values float suspensionLength = 1.0f; float stiffness = 0.4f; float dampingForce = 1.0f; void FixedUpdate()     {         RaycastHit hit;                 for (int i = 0; i < wheelPoints.Length; i++)         {             var wheelPoint = wheelPoints[i];             if (Physics.Raycast(wheelPoint.transform.position,                                 -transform.up,                                 out hit,                                 suspensionLength,                                 layerMask))             {                 float contactDepth = suspensionLength - hit.distance;                 float contactSpeed = contactDepth - lastContactDepth;                 float suspensionForce = stiffness * contactDepth + dampingForce * contactSpeed;                 suspensionForce *= 500;                 rigidBody.AddForceAtPosition(transform.up * suspensionForce, wheelPoints[i].transform.position, ForceMode.Force);                 lastContactDepth = contactDepth;             }         }     }
  2. Hi! I render the depth texture to generate the shadow mapping.  I am following this tutorial: http://www.opengl-tutorial.org/intermediate-tutorials/tutorial-16-shadow-mapping/ In this tutorial, the author obtain a greyscale depthmap, but I obtain a red depth map without gradient. My code:         // After initialize the meshes and load the textures, generate the textures in OpenGL void Engine::GenerateTextures() {     // Generate the textures     textureCount = texturelist.size()+1; texturesID.reserve(textureCount);   // +1 to reserve space for depth texture glGenTextures(textureCount, &texturesID[0]);     int c = 0;     foreach(std::list<Texture*>, texturelist)     {         glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0+c);         glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texturesID[c]);         ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not bind the texture");         glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D,0,GL_RGBA, (*it)->width, (*it)->height, 0, GL_BGRA,GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,(*it)->pixels );         ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not create the texture with glTexImage2D");         glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);         glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR);         //glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER);         //glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER);         glGenerateMipmap(GL_TEXTURE_2D);         c++;     }     // Initialize and binds the framebuffer.     ShadowFramebuffer = 0;     glGenFramebuffers(1, &ShadowFramebuffer);     glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, ShadowFramebuffer);     // Generate the depth texture     glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0+c);     glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texturesID[c]);     ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not bind the shadow texture");     glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0,GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16, 1024, 1024, 0,GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, 0);     ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not create the shadow texture with glTexImage2D");     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);     // Attach the texture to the framebuffer     glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT,  texturesID[c], 0);     ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not attach the texture to the frame buffer");     glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE); // No color buffer is drawn to.     ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not draw the buffer");     if(glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE)         ExitOnGLError("Error: FrameBuffer isn´t OK");     glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0); }     void Engine::Draw(void) {     drawDepthMap = true;     if(drawDepthMap)     {        // draw the objects using the depthRTT shader         foreach(std::list<GameScreen*>, gamescreens)         {             (*it)->Draw();         }     } }        depthRTT.glsl #ifdef COMPILING_VS layout(location=0) in vec4 in_Position; uniform mat4 ModelMatrix; uniform mat4 ViewMatrix; uniform mat4 ProjectionMatrix; void main(void) { gl_Position = (ProjectionMatrix * ViewMatrix * ModelMatrix) * in_Position; } #endif #ifdef COMPILING_FS out float fragmentdepth; void main(void) { fragmentdepth = gl_FragCoord.z; } #endif    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/259/sinttulovbu.png/
  3. Hi! I try to render a mesh with GL_LINE_LOOP, but the result is deform:   This image show the vertex of the mesh and the indices:     The code to load and render:   void PhysicObject::Load(void) { glGenVertexArrays(1, &BufferIds[0]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede generar el VAO"); glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO"); // Activamos dos vertex attribute locations glEnableVertexAttribArray(0); glEnableVertexAttribArray(1); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede activar los vertex attributes"); // Creamos los VBO glGenBuffers(2, &BufferIds[1]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se pueden generar los buffer objects"); // Bindeamos el VBO al VAO glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[1]); glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertices.size()*sizeof(VertexTextureNormal), &vertices[0], GL_STATIC_DRAW); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VBO al VAO"); glVertexAttribPointer(0, 4, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vertices[0]) ,0); glVertexAttribPointer(1, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vertices[0]) , (GLvoid*) sizeof(vertices[0].position)); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: Could not set VAO attributes"); // Creamos el IBO glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[2]); glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indices.size() * sizeof(GLuint), &indices.front(), GL_STATIC_DRAW); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el IBO al VAO"); glBindVertexArray(0); } void PhysicObject::Draw() { std::cout<<c<<std::endl; // Create the ModelMatrix glm::mat4 ModelMatrix = glm::translate( glm::mat4(1.0f), getPosition() ); colormat->Prepare3dDraw(ModelMatrix); glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO para dibujar"); glDrawElements(GL_LINE_LOOP, indices.size(), GL_UNSIGNED_INT, (GLvoid*)0); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede dibujar el meshpart"); glBindVertexArray(0); }    
  4. Ok, thanks for your answers
  5. I am thinking to change to GLFW. Is reading inputs faster?
  6. I am using Freeglut.
  7. Hi! I have the keyboard class that initialize the glutKeyboards functions. When I release a key, the program takes five frames to detect. I have another class that when I push the key 's', it add a vec3(1.0,1.0,1.0) to the variable position. The problem is that in each frame from that I press key 's' until it detects that I released it adds to the variable position the vector vec3(1.0,1.0,1.0). The update() function is called before the Draw () function in the render method KeyboardDevice.cpp     void KeyboardDevice::keySpecialUp(int key, int x, int y) { keySpecialStates[key] = false; timeReleased = clock(); keySpecialReleaseStates[key] = true; // Set the state of the current special key recently pressed }   bool KeyboardDevice::IsKeyPress(unsigned char key) { return keyStates[key]; } bool KeyboardDevice::IsKeyUp(unsigned char key) { double now = clock()/(double)CLOCKS_PER_SEC; double last = timeReleased /(double)CLOCKS_PER_SEC; if(now-last < 1 && keyReleaseStates[key] == true) { keyReleaseStates[key] = false; return true; } return false; } Actor.cpp: void Cube::Update(void) { if(kb->IsKeyPress('s')) position += glm::vec3(1.0 * getParent()->getEngine()->deltaTime); } Any idea to resolve this?
  8. If I not initialize the color variable in GLSL but I give a value through "glUniform3f(ColorUniformLocation, color.x, color.y, color.z);" in the code, it does´n work.  Am I doing something wrong?
  9. Hi! I want to initialize my uniform variable in GLSL with a default value, but the program give me an error when I run it: Fragment code GLSL uniform vec3 Color = vec3(1.0,0.0,0.0); out vec3 out_Color; void main(void){ out_Color = Color; } If I the variable "Color" isn´t a uniform variable, the program works. I need that Color is uniform to change his value from a class. When I load the material I call this method:     void Color_mat::Load(void) { shader = getParent()->getEngine()->content.Load("Shaders/ColorShader.glsl"); Material::Load(); ColorUniformLocation = glGetUniformLocation(shader->ID, "Color"); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: Could not get the Color uniform location"); }       And When I draw, i call this method to start drawing the objects:   void Color_mat::Prepare3dDraw(glm::mat4 ModelMatrix) { Material::Prepare3dDraw(ModelMatrix); glUniform3f(ColorUniformLocation, color.x, color.y, color.z); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: Could not set the color"); }    
  10. I have a class with the Load texture that is responsible for loading an image and add the pixels of this to a variable char * pixels. Then, in the main class, Engine class, I have another method that adds this texture loaded to a std::list , so that once you have loaded all the textures generate. The problem is that all objects that use a texture, appear with the last texture I uploaded.   In the method Engine::CreateWorld() I add the objets for my 3D World:   void Engine::CreateWorld(void) {     GameScreen *gs1 = new GameScreen("hola");     PushGameScreen(gs1);       Camera *cam = new Camera();     gs1->AddComponent(cam);     cam->setPosition(glm::vec3(0.0, 2.0, 4.0));       Plane* pln = new Plane();     gs1->AddComponent(pln);     pln->setPosition(glm::vec3(0.0f,-1.0f,0.0f));       Cube* cb = new Cube();     gs1->AddComponent(cb);     cb->setPosition(glm::vec3(1.2f));     cb->setScale(glm::vec3(.2f)); }   Every time I add a Component to GameScreen, it call the Load method:   Plane.cpp   void Plane::Load(void) {     mesh = getParent()->getEngine()->content.Load<Mesh>("Models/plane.obj");     ApplyMaterials(); }   void Plane::ApplyMaterials() {     Texture_mat *texturemat = new Texture_mat;    // Instanciamos el material     getParent()->AddComponent(texturemat);    // Añadimos el material a los component para que se cargue     texturemat->setDiffuseTexture("Textures/plane.png");     materials.insert(std::pair<std::string, Material*>("Material.005",texturemat));   //Añadimos el material e indicamos odnde se tiene que aplicar }   Cube.cpp   void Cube::Load(void) {     mesh = getParent()->getEngine()->content.Load<Mesh>("Models/untitled.obj");     ApplyMaterials(); }   void Cube::ApplyMaterials() {     Color_mat *colormat = new Color_mat;    // Instanciamos el material     getParent()->AddComponent(colormat);    // Añadimos el material a los component para que se cargue     Texture_mat *texturemap = new Texture_mat;     getParent()->AddComponent(texturemap);    //Añadimos el material a los component     materials.insert(std::pair<std::string, Material*>("Material.002",colormat));   //Añadimos el material e indicamos odnde se tiene que aplicar     materials.insert(std::pair<std::string, Material*>("Material.003",texturemap)); }   Plane and Cube use Texture material:   void Texture_mat::Load(void) {     shader = getParent()->getEngine()->content.Load<Shader>("Shaders/SimpleShader.glsl");    //texture shader     Material::Load();     diffvalue = getParent()->getEngine()->LoadTexture(                                                                                                            //return texture value for to use in glUniform1i                                                                                getParent()->getEngine()->content.Load<Texture>("Textures/cube.bmp") //return texture loaded                                                                               );      DiffuseUniformLocation = shader->GetUniformLocation("texture0");   // get the texture uniform location form shader     ExitOnGLError("Error: Could not load texture"); }       void Texture_mat::Prepare3dDraw(glm::mat4 ModelMatrix) {     Material::Prepare3dDraw(ModelMatrix);  //     glUniform1i(DiffuseUniformLocation, diffvalue); }   Texture.cpp   #include "gl/glew.h" #include "../../include/Texture.hpp" #include "../../include/Util.hpp" #include "../../include/IL/il.h" Texture::Texture(){};     Texture::~Texture() {     };     void Texture::Load(std::string filename) {     name = filename;         ILuint imageID;     ilGenImages(1, &imageID);     ilBindImage(imageID);     ILboolean success = ilLoadImage(filename.c_str());

}     bool operator == (const Texture &tex1, const Texture &tex2) {     return (             tex1.name == tex2.name             ); };   Engine.cpp   GLint Engine::LoadTexture(Texture* n_tex) {     int c = 0;     for (std::list<Texture*>::iterator it = texturelist.begin(); it != texturelist.end(); it++)     {         if( (*it)->name == n_tex->name )         {             return (GLint) c;         }         c++;     }       texturelist.push_back(n_tex);       return (GLint) texturelist.size()-1; }   After the method CreateWorld(), call to GenerateTextures()   void Engine::GenerateTextures() {     // Gneramos las texturas para OpenGL     GLuint texturesID[texturelist.size()];

  11. I discover my problem, the mesh variable from actor class...is static!!
  12. The problem isn´t the VAO or VBO. Before I load the cube, the plane have his data. After I load the cube, plane have the cube data. While the data cube load , the plane have the correctly data. I don´t know what its the problem. At least VBO and VAO are discarted.   Thanks for your attention.
  13. I add glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[1]) before calling DrawElements and it doesn´t work.
  14. the render function of meshparts:       void MeshPart::Draw() {     glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]);     ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO para dibujar");     glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, indices.size(), GL_UNSIGNED_INT, (GLvoid*)0);     ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede dibujar el meshpart");     glBindVertexArray(0); }  
  15. Hi!   I have a method that load a mesh from .obj, and Initialice. It works when I load one mesh only...But If I load two o more different meshes, the first that I load take the values ( vertices, indices... ) from the second. I think that the problem is in VAO or VBO, but i can´t found the error.   There is the initialice method from Mesh Class:   void MeshPart::Initialize() { // Creamos el VAO glGenVertexArrays(1, &BufferIds[0]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede generar el VAO"); glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO"); // Activamos dos vertex attribute locations glEnableVertexAttribArray(0); glEnableVertexAttribArray(1); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede activar los vertex attributes"); // Creamos los VBO glGenBuffers(2, &BufferIds[1]); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se pueden generar los buffer objects"); // Bindeamos el VBO al VAO glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[1]); glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vtn.size()*sizeof(VertexTextureNormal), &vtn[0], GL_STATIC_DRAW); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VBO al VAO"); glVertexAttribPointer(0, 4, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vtn[0]) ,0); glVertexAttribPointer(1, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vtn[0]) , (GLvoid*) sizeof(vtn[0].position)); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: Could not set VAO attributes"); // Creamos el IBO glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[2]); glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indices.size() * sizeof(GLuint), &indices.front(), GL_STATIC_DRAW); ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el IBO al VAO"); glBindVertexArray(0); }     Does anyone know what happens to me?
