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. Hi everyone, I'm currently using slimdx to make a GIS and i'm having some kind of problem with the camera which i'm not quite sure how to fix. I`ve been able to make the cursor follow the place i'm dragging but when I drag the camera the second time it is reset to the original position. Any help would be appreciated. i'm using an orthographic projection. The PanelToWorldSpace convert the view to a 1 to -1 coordinates system. [source lang="csharp"] public void UpdateScene(float x , float y, float z) { float currentX; float currentY; float currentIH = ptd.Height; float currentIW = ptd.Width; currentX = x; currentY = y; mouseX = x; mouseY = y; Ray mr = PanelToWordSpace(x,y); #region Zoom if (z != 0) { if (z > 0 && camPos > 0.09 ) { camPos = camPos - 0.07; } else { if (z < 0 && camPos < 1.4) { camPos = camPos + 0.07; } } camProj = Matrix.OrthoLH(ptd.Width*3, ptd.Height*3, 0.00001f, float.MaxValue); } #endregion mouseNormalX = mr.Position.X; mouseNormalY = mr.Position.Y; float mouseNormalDeltaX = oldMouseNormalX - mouseNormalX; float mouseNormalDeltaY = oldMouseNormalY - mouseNormalY; float mouseDeltaX = oldMouseX - mouseX; float mouseDeltaY = oldMouseY - mouseY; camProj = camProj * Matrix.Translation(new Vector3(-mouseNormalDeltaX, -mouseNormalDeltaY, 0.0f)); WVP = World * camView * camProj ; cbPerObj.WVP = Matrix.Transpose(WVP); DataStream cbData = new DataStream(Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)), true, true); cbData.Write(cbPerObj); cbData.Position = 0; cbPerObjectBuffer = new Buffer(device, cbData, cbPerObjectBufferDesc); context.VertexShader.SetConstantBuffer(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0); oldMouseNormalX = mouseNormalX; oldMouseNormalY = mouseNormalY; oldMouseX = mouseX; oldMouseY = mouseY; }[/source] [source lang="csharp"] private Ray PanelToWordSpace(float x , float y) { Vector3 near = new Vector3(x,y,0.00001f); Vector3 far = new Vector3(x,y,float.MaxValue); Vector3 vNearW = Vector3.Unproject(near,0,0,ptd.Width,ptd.Height,0,1,World ); Vector3 vFarW = Vector3.Unproject(far, 0, 0, ptd.Width, ptd.Height, 0, 1, World); Vector3 vDirect = vFarW - vNearW; vDirect = Vector3.Normalize(vDirect); return new Ray(vNearW, vDirect); }[/source]
  2. I'm still confused about this. My dragging is working except that it's rather a challenge to drag at close zoom because the movement is going to fast. My camera is a perspective : [source lang="csharp"] private void SetWorldAndCam() { // Set Constant Buffer cbPerObjectBufferDesc = new BufferDescription(); cbPerObjectBufferDesc.SizeInBytes = Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)); cbPerObjectBufferDesc.Usage = ResourceUsage.Default; cbPerObjectBufferDesc.BindFlags = BindFlags.ConstantBuffer; cbPerObjectBufferDesc.CpuAccessFlags = CpuAccessFlags.None; cbPerObjectBufferDesc.OptionFlags = ResourceOptionFlags.None; cbPerObjectBufferDesc.StructureByteStride = Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)); // Set Camera camPos = 0.42; camPosition = new Vector3(0.0f, 0.0f, -100.0f); camTarget = new Vector3(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); camUp = new Vector3(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); camView = Matrix.LookAtLH(camPosition, camTarget, camUp); camProj = Matrix.PerspectiveFovLH(0.4f * 3.14f, (float)ptd.Width / ptd.Height, 0.00001f, float.MaxValue); World = Matrix.Identity * 10000; WVP = World * camView * camProj; cbPerObj.WVP = Matrix.Transpose(WVP); DataStream cbData = new DataStream(Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)), true, true); cbData.Write(cbPerObj); cbData.Position = 0; cbPerObjectBuffer = new Buffer(device, cbData,cbPerObjectBufferDesc); context.VertexShader.SetConstantBuffer(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0); }[/source] and here is wher I do my dragging : [source lang="csharp"] public void UpdateScene(float x , float y, float z) { float currentX; float currentY; float currentIH = ptd.Height; float currentIW = ptd.Width; currentX = x ; currentY = y ; Ray mr = PanelToWordSpace(); Console.WriteLine(mr.Position); #region Zoom if (z != 0) { if (z > 0 && camPos > 0.09 ) { camPos = camPos - 0.07; } else { if (z < 0 && camPos < 0.98) { camPos = camPos + 0.07; } } Console.WriteLine(camPos); } #endregion camView = camView * Matrix.Translation(currentX,-currentY,0.00f); camProj = Matrix.PerspectiveFovLH((float)camPos * 3.14f, (float)ptd.Width/ ptd.Height, 0.00001f, float.MaxValue); WVP = World * camView * camProj ; cbPerObj.WVP = Matrix.Transpose(WVP); DataStream cbData = new DataStream(Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)), true, true); cbData.Write(cbPerObj); cbData.Position = 0; cbPerObjectBuffer = new Buffer(device, cbData, cbPerObjectBufferDesc); context.VertexShader.SetConstantBuffer(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0); } [/source] The main problem I have is having the mouse cursor stick to the place I am dragging and give the drag a proper speed. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. correction... still have a aspect ratio problem...
  4. Hi everyone, I'm currently having a bug with my aspect ratio in my gis. I'm trying to figure out where I should fix the problem. I have a panel in a form showing a directx viewport. The problem is when I resize the form i get some kind of scaling which mean that the aspect ratio is not preserved. I'm just not quite sure how to preserve the aspect ratio and how to do it. Is it with the camera or the viewport ? this is where I set the camera and the world : ptd is the panel on which the viewport is drawn.

  5. well without knowing it you answered another of my questions i didnt want an perpective projection but an orthgraphic one. you help is much appreciated.
  6. duh stupid me i answered my own question... it's Perspective : camProj = [b]Matrix.PerspectiveFov[/b]LH(0.4f * 3.14f, (float)ptd.Height / ptd.Width, 0.00001f, 1000.0f);

  8. Hi everyone , i'm in the process of making a gis with directx and i have to drag the mouse around the map see different part of it (like google map). The main problem with this is the speed of the drag when zooming in and out. Setting the scroll speed to a static number when zoom out and draging the map is easy but when I zoom in i have to slow the speed of the dragging in order to give the gis a proper smooth movement. I wonder if anyone has any experience with this and if someone has any idea of a mathematical formula to do this smoothly. The way I do this right now is the following and static but is working well. thanks in advance. [source lang="csharp"] public void UpdateScene(float x , float y, float z) { float currentX; float currentY; float currentZ; currentX = x * 0.00014f; currentY = y * 0.00314f; currentZ = z * 0.0005f; camPosition.X += currentX; camPosition.Y += -currentY; // Console.Write("CamPosition Z: " + camPosition.Z +"\r"); if (camPosition.Z + currentZ < 1.1f && camPosition.Z + currentZ > -1.5) { camPosition.Z += currentZ; } else { currentZ = 0; } camView = camView * Matrix.Translation(new Vector3(currentX, -currentY, -currentZ)); WVP = World * camView * camProj ; cbPerObj.WVP = Matrix.Transpose(WVP); DataStream cbData = new DataStream(Marshal.SizeOf(typeof(cbPerObject)), true, true); cbData.Write(cbPerObj); cbData.Position = 0; cbPerObjectBuffer = new Buffer(device, cbData, cbPerObjectBufferDesc); context.VertexShader.SetConstantBuffer(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0); }[/source]
  9. AHHHH great ! Neometron was right ! my cam was too much forward ! Now I see my triangle thanks alot. Thanks for the sympathies Narf... this is my first time in the directx world and it's really an unpleasant one. Alot of stuff to grasp. I have been programming stuff for a couple of years and this is the most complex things i've done up to now in software developement.
  10. Hi everyone, I'm rather now to directx and slim dx and i'm trying to figure out a strange occurence i'm having. I trying to display a triangle but for some reason the viewport is empty. I have set the world and the camera. it's passing through the vertex shader but after that nothing. Here is my code... be gentle this is a big WIP. I'm still grasping some of the basics of Directx.
