      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.

  1. Finally found the problem, this: [source lang="cpp"]bool IntersectTubo(vec3 rayOrigin, vec3 rayDestination, vec3 tuboA, vec3 tuboB, float tuboRadius) { vec3 pointRay = ClosestPointLineLine(rayOrigin, rayDestination, tuboA, tuboB); vec3 pointTubo = ClosestPointRaySegment(tuboA, tuboB, rayOrigin, rayDestination); return (distance(pointRay, pointTubo) <= tuboRadius); }[/source] Should be: [source lang="cpp"]bool IntersectTubo(vec3 rayOrigin, vec3 rayDestination, vec3 tuboA, vec3 tuboB, float tuboRadius) { vec3 pointRay = ClosestPointLineLine(rayOrigin, rayDestination, tuboA, tuboB); vec3 pointTubo = ClosestPointRaySegment(rayOrigin, rayDestination, tuboA, tuboB); return (distance(pointRay, pointTubo) <= tuboRadius); }[/source]
  2. Hi all, I'm trying to port a code from executing in the CPU to the GPU. It's supposed to render normally if the ray from camera don't collide with a tube after reflecting on a surface. So I'm rendering the surface and looking for intersection of the reflected ray with a tube passed as uniform. This is my code for vertexshader: [source lang="cpp"]#version 330 compatibility out vec3 normal; out vec3 rayDir; out vec3 originalPos; uniform vec3 cameraPos; void main() { //we need the normal in world space, don't transform normal = normalize(gl_Normal); gl_FrontColor = gl_Color; gl_Position = gl_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * gl_Vertex; //we need the position in world space, don't transform. This will be the origin of the ray originalPos = gl_Vertex.xyz; //obtaining ray from camera vec3 eyeDir = normalize(originalPos - cameraPos); //reflecting the ray to get the new direction after reflection rayDir = normalize(reflect(eyeDir, normal)); }[/source] Code for fragmentshader: [source lang="cpp"]#version 330 compatibility float Dmnop(vec3 m, vec3 n, vec3 o, vec3 p) { return (m.x - n.x) * (o.x - p.x) + (m.y - n.y) * (o.y - p.y) + (m.z - n.z) * (o.z - p.z); } float d; float d2; vec3 ClosestPointLineLine(vec3 start0, vec3 end0, vec3 start1, vec3 end1) { float d0232 = Dmnop(start0, start1, end1, start1); float d3210 = Dmnop(end1, start1, end0, start0); float d3232 = Dmnop(end1, start1, end1, start1); d = (d0232 * d3210 - Dmnop(start0, start1, end0, start0)*d3232) / (Dmnop(end0, start0, end0, start0) * Dmnop(end1, start1, end1, start1) - Dmnop(end1, start1, end0, start0) * Dmnop(end1, start1, end0, start0)); d2 = (d0232 + d * d3210) / d3232; return start0 + d * (end0 - start0); } vec3 ClosestPointRaySegment(vec3 rayPos, vec3 rayDestination, vec3 a, vec3 b) { ClosestPointLineLine(a, b, rayPos, rayDestination); d = clamp(d, 0.0, 1.0); // This is a line segment - cap both ends. d2 = max(0.0, d2); // The other primitive is a ray - cap negative side. return (b - a) * d + a; } bool IntersectTubo(vec3 rayOrigin, vec3 rayDestination, vec3 tuboA, vec3 tuboB, float tuboRadius) { vec3 pointRay = ClosestPointLineLine(rayOrigin, rayDestination, tuboA, tuboB); vec3 pointTubo = ClosestPointRaySegment(tuboA, tuboB, rayOrigin, rayDestination); return (distance(pointRay, pointTubo) <= tuboRadius); } in vec3 rayDir; in vec3 originalPos; uniform vec3 tubeA; uniform vec3 tubeB; uniform float radius; uniform vec3 lightDir; in vec3 normal; void main() { if(IntersectTubo(originalPos, originalPos + rayDir, tubeA, tubeB, radius)) { gl_FragColor= vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0); } else { float diffuse_value = max(abs(dot(normal, lightDir)),0.0); // Set the output color of our current pixel gl_FragColor = gl_Color * diffuse_value; } }[/source] The math functions are taken from [b]MathGeoLib [/b]([url="http://clb.demon.fi/MathGeoLib"]http://clb.demon.fi/MathGeoLib[/url]). The idea on rays is taking advantage of the interpolation between vertex and fragment and I must add that model is in world position as well as tube, that's why I don't see any need to transform. This code is working perfectly in CPU but there's something wrong in my GLSL code that is keeping me from getting a correct representation of the reflection of the tube. I hope this post is quite self explanatory and I look forward any help you could give me. Thanks in advance.
