      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. hm it displayed correctly in my engine, and i cant find error in your code o.0 only thing im not sure is flag "aiProcess_SplitLargeMeshes" maybe it just not working?  I think you can just get correct indices and vertices count for each part of mesh, and draw it via separate drawcall
  2. I can check it in my application, just upload this .obj model if you can.
  3. its not normal screen tearing, i've got it with enable vsync too.
  4. Yes of course i'm setting sum to 0, can you tell me something more about per-pixel normals(almost nothing in google about that) or any other way to make it smooth?
  5. hello again ;/ I have really strange problem with vertex normals. result : code for compute vertex normal : Result is very strange ;/ There are strange small "holes" - ofc they're from normals, terrain grid is smooth, so normals should be smooth too. ;/
  6. he didnt specify which glsl version he's using.
  7. I've normalized it twice by accident thanks for help, it should look smoother with per vertex normals.
  8. shaders are correct, its working for me on HD4870 ;p What is your gpu?
  9. Hello there, i have small problem with normals for terrain generated from heightmap. I'm trying to generate normals for it, and its almost working, but i'm getting very strange result ( there are strange stripes everywhere ;f) :      Code for generation normals : glm::vec3 x6ngine::cHeightMap::computeNormal(glm::vec3 v0, glm::vec3 v1, glm::vec3 v2) { return glm::normalize(glm::normalize(glm::cross(v2-v0,v1-v0))); } i dont know where's problem ;/ somewhere in opengl code?, or i'm just generating it wrong? Thanks for help. Regards x6itru.
