      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. Maybe my port of program "ClickedPoints" will be useful for someone. These programs are equivalent: ClickedPoints (WebGL) DrawPointsByClick (OpenTK) Screenshot:  
  2. This code draws the point in mouse click position: protected override void OnMouseDown(MouseButtonEventArgs e) { base.OnMouseDown(e); if (e.Button == MouseButton.Left) { float x = (e.X - Width / 2f) / (Width / 2f); float y = -(e.Y - Height / 2f) / (Height / 2f); // Pass coordinates of point to a_Position GL.VertexAttrib2(a_Position, x, y); Console.WriteLine(x + " " + y); } }
  3. The solution:   1. Open to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE 2. Right click on devenv.exe. 3. Hover to the "Run with graphics processor..." 4. Select "High-end NVidia processor".   This solution I found here: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/1216990/visual-studio-2013-lacks-nvidia-optimus-profile-but-it-can-run-nvidia-graphics-processor-directly
  4. Hello, I try to port this example from WebGL: ch02/ClickedPoints in OpenTK. This example draws the points in position of mouse click. I draw one point in my example. In beginning the point is drawn in (0, 0.5). Drawing loop is 30 frames per second. When I click on the window area the point must to be redrawn in (0, 0) position. You can run and test my problem in VS2012 - VS2015: DrawPointsByClick_Problem.zip VertexShader.glsl #version 330 in vec4 a_Position; void main() { gl_Position = a_Position; gl_PointSize = 10.0; } FragmentShader.glsl #version 330 out vec4 fragColor;

  6. The solution. You need to set for files "vShader.glsl" and "fShader.glsl" in settings: "Copy to Output Directory" to "Copy always".
  7. Hello, This version of my program works perfect. It gets shaders from strings: string vShaderSource = "#version 330\n" + "in vec4 a_Position;\n" + "void main() {\n" + "gl_Position = a_Position;\n" + "}\n"; string fShaderSource = "#version 330\n" + "out vec4 outColor;\n" + "void main() {\n" + "outColor = vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0);\n" + "}\n"; Screenshot Download the Project: Triangle_StringShaders.zip But when I want to load shaders from files I receive the error, see shreenshot Download the Project: Triangle_FileShaderError.zip string vShaderSource = null; string fShaderSource = null; // ... private void renderCanvas_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { // ... // Load shaders from files LoadShader("./Shaders/vShader.glsl", out vShaderSource); LoadShader("./Shaders/fShader.glsl", out fShaderSource); if (vShaderSource == null || fShaderSource == null) { File.AppendAllText(infoFileName, "Failed to load shaders from files"); return; } // ... } private void LoadShader(string fileName, out string shaderSource) { shaderSource = null; using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(fileName)) { shaderSource = sr.ReadToEnd(); } }

    I know the solution: https://github.com/opentk/opentk/issues/489#issuecomment-282549309 gl_PointSize doens't work in OpenTK. We need to use GL.PointSize(float) (see glPointSize)

    slicer4ever, can you download and run my project than I attached in first message? Does it run?

    Yes: https://github.com/opentk/opentk

    If the project "HelloPoint1" doesn't run in your VS please say me about it.
  12. Hello I want to draw a point with custom size in C# OpenGL3.3 OpenTK like this: https://jsfiddle.net/8Observer8/cc72u1u5/ But I see the point with size 1 pixel I attached the project. Everyone can run it in VS 2012 - VS 2015 using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Text; using System.Drawing; using OpenTK; using OpenTK.Graphics.OpenGL; using Utils; namespace HelloPoint1 { class MainWindow : GameWindow { string VSHADER_SOURCE = null; string FSHADER_SOURCE = null; bool canDraw = false; protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e) { base.OnLoad(e); // Load shaders from files ShaderLoader.LoadShader("./Shaders/vShader.glsl", out VSHADER_SOURCE); ShaderLoader.LoadShader("./Shaders/fShader.glsl", out FSHADER_SOURCE); if (VSHADER_SOURCE == null || FSHADER_SOURCE == null) { Console.WriteLine("Failed to load shaders from files"); return; } // Specify the color for clearing GL.ClearColor(Color.Black); GL.Enable(EnableCap.ProgramPointSize); canDraw = true; } protected override void OnRenderFrame(FrameEventArgs e) { base.OnRenderFrame(e); if (!canDraw) return; GL.Clear(ClearBufferMask.ColorBufferBit); // Draw a point GL.DrawArrays(PrimitiveType.Points, 0, 1); GL.Flush(); SwapBuffers(); } } }
  13. Hello. I want to make a match-3 game in this winter. I will use a project from this book. You can click to play   But I don't know what is better: Unity(WebG)+C# or pure WebGL+JavaScript
  14. I think it would be good if you add some game demos in your website.
