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. OpenGL

    Tried all kind of modification on the vertices, the matrix code is supposed to be okay as it is part of OpenTK and they work there. Also tried transposing the matrix when sending it to the shaders but it didn't work.   [hr] Fixed: I forgot to set the Viewport as the default one isn't compatible with my window creation code, I'm dumb x.x
  2. OpenGL

    I'll take a look at the winding, about the matrix I already tried several others, including without a matrix as those vertices would work w/o one. As I took that vertices from http://www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut/ I assume that they work
  3. I'm writing a basic OpenGL framework in C# and I've got a problem that is holding me for 3 days.   I've managed to create the window, OpenGL context and all necessary things using OpenTK. I can also clear the screen using glClear/glClearColor, but I can't render anything. As I'm using an OpenTK assembly built with DEBUG any OpenGL error that I could get would be catch by OpenTK and a exception would be thrown but there are no errors.   I've working on this for 3 days and I have no clue of what is the problem. If someone need any piece of code to help me, just ask.   Vertex Shader: [spoiler] #version 330 in vec3 iPosition; in vec3 iNormal; in vec4 iColor; out vec4 gColor; uniform mat4 WorldViewProjection; void main() { gColor = iColor; gl_Position = WorldViewProjection * vec4(iPosition, 1); }   [/spoiler]   Fragment Shader: [spoiler] in vec4 gColor; uniform float Alpha; out vec4 OutFragColor; void main() { OutFragColor = vec4(1,1,1,1); }  [/spoiler]   Test Vertices: [spoiler] 0.75f, 0.75f, 0.0f 0.75f, -0.75f, 0.0f -0.75f, -0.75f, 0.0f [/spoiler]   This would be a closed source engine but I'm pushing the code on GitHub so someone could help: https://github.com/GreenBoxDevelopment/gb3d Some important files: Test/SimpleTest/TestApp/TestGame.cs Source/Engine/GreenBox3D/Graphics/* Source/Engine/Platform/GreenBox3D.Platform.Windows/Graphics/*
