    GameDev Direct

    Thanks Khawk, I've PM'd you now.
  2. I've tried repeatedly to unsubscribe from the Gamedev Direct emails and it always says that it's worked, but they keep coming. I've also emailed asking to be removed but that's also failed. This has been going on since the update to the "new" site layout Obviously I've had enough of this so I can, and now have, flagged it as spam so that it gets automatically ignored. Any chance you could fix it so that the unsubscribe links actually work? Andy

    My woes while trying to build UE4 from source

    Try a stable source release rather than HEAD first, also make sure you have any prerequisites installed.   All of those errors sounds like your drive file system however PFN_LIST_CORRUPT reminds me of a Windows 10 upgrade problem - usually a bad driver that hasn't had an update https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/windows/hardware/ff559014(v=vs.85).aspx   You're correct about the Unity builds, they lump source files into a bunch of bigger clumps for optimal build times.

    Personal Update

    Glad you're on the mend and you're absolutely right about how lucky we are at the moment, at least until the Tories finish destroying our NHS :(   Hope you recover swiftly. The care for anaemia is pretty good, my sister always has incredibly low iron levels but has nothing but praise for the care she's been getting.

    BGFX Renderer Compiling Woes

    The other you haven't mentioned is what machine you're trying to run this on. What OS, how much ram and what GPU do you have? This matters as an old integrated Intel GPU just isn't going to be able to run the more advanced samples and might not even be able to initialise the renderer that the sample is trying to use.   Andy

    BGFX Renderer Compiling Woes

    What? Example please as I have the code and don't know what you're talking about.   EDIT: Or now I've thought about it some more are you looking at the disassembly view when debugging and not the source code?   Best way to resolve this is to tell us what file and line is giving you the problem, so set the "Hello World" example as your startup project, but it in "Debug" & either "x86 or "x64" configuration, then from the "Debug" menu choose "Step Into" instead of "Start Debugging". This will cause it to start at the "main" function and you can step through the code until you find exactly where things go wrong.   Andy

    BGFX Renderer Compiling Woes

    Can you tell us more about how they don't run?   Is it a graphics initialisation error? Are you starting them in the wrong working directory?   You seem to have had some issues getting your Git repositories setup so something may not be configured correctly. I've run the BGFX stuff just fine on a range of platforms when evaluating it with only my Intel iGPU giving me some trouble with various configurations (OpenGL vs DX etc).   The other thing you could do is contact the author, he's been very friendly and helpful when we chatted in the past. He's on Twitter (https://twitter.com/bkaradzic) or you could contact him via the BGFX GitHub pages.   Andy

    Also you do have the folders setup like this yes? C:\Users\Solaris\Desktop\BG\BGFX C:\Users\Solaris\Desktop\BG\bx

    If you don't have that "genie.exe" then you don't have a valid checkout of the "bx" project. So either download a zip of "bx" again or checkout and pull master from bx to get the latest - dependent on how you got it.   You also don't need all the makefile and GnuWin32 stuff, the command line you want is right there in your output as: ../bx/tools/bin/windows/genie --with-tools --with-shared-lib vs2008 Just change it to suit Windows cmd line formatting like so ..\bx\tools\bin\windows\genie.exe --with-tools --with-shared-lib vs2008 All that the makefile does is generate ALL of the possible build options for every single possible platform and configuration so if you just want a specific platform you can pass that command instead so for Visual Studio 2013 you'd just change it to: ..\bx\tools\bin\windows\genie.exe --with-tools --with-shared-lib vs2013 Now you have only the vs2013 solution without all of the rest.   Andy

    World in 7 days, Day 1: Galaxies

    If you're interested in stuff like this then you can checkout how open source games do it to. Pioneer (http://pioneerspacesim.net/) is open source (https://github.com/pioneerspacesim/pioneer) and features procedural galaxy, star systems, planets you can land on etc.

    Woody3D Discontinued

    I'm not so attached to the name but I was looking for this today and now I've found out it's discontinued.   How goes the new version? Is there any way to get the old one?

    Still Alive

    It'd be nice to here a description of how you're building those Nav' meshes actually because it looks like you've got good separation from the objects in the scene and it's still low density.

    May the 4th, Be With Us - on Kickstarter!

    Good luck with it, I've been following your journal for a while reading all of the cool lighting effects and suchlike you've been adding :)   One question, which you've probably answered before but I can't find it, is will you be able to enter atmospheres or land on planets?
