  1. Let me introduce myself first ,I am a student major in chinese literature(your know ,I am from china ),but I really don't want to study literature anymore ,for the academic system is so bad .I want to choose a more freedom and sincere field to study (I know it‘s not very easy).By accident ,I have access to indie games ,and I think it's more closed to what I want to express(writing can complete some goals too ,but I pay more attention to interaction),I learn python and processing by myself (do some simple things ,just for fun ),but I have no idea how can I complete a game by myself .I even plan to apply to graduate school (like NYU,USC) to study game design ,but I have no works now……I really need some advice . I find this website accidently(how luck I am !) ,VPN sometimes works not very well ,maybe I can't reply the comments promptly . Thank you very much !
  2. Investment in game-based learning companies was sharply up in 2018, according to leading serious games analyst firm, Metaari. A total of $2.25 billion went to 133 companies. In contrast, $948.2 million was invested in 150 game-based learning companies in 2017. While the number of deals declined slightly in 2018, funding levels were much higher and investment more than doubled. Almost 100 companies reported raising substantial funds. Seventeen PreK-12 academic-facing companies obtained funding in 2018. Twenty-one corporate-focused companies producing game-based training were funded. China is the education technology center of the universe, at least for now, according to Adkins. In 2018, 51 Chinese game-based learning companies garnered a combined total of $539.3 million. Nearly 50% of all ed tech investments made in 2018 went to Chinese companies. “This is the first time in the history of the industry that China overtook the US. A stunning $7.22 billion was invested in 207 Chinese learning technology companies in 2018,” Sam Adkins said. Metaari produces annual reports on the global game-based learning market. The reports, available from Serious Play Events, include an analysis of the catalysts driving the market as well as both a demand and supply-side analysis, providing publishers with the ability to choose high-yielding opportunities. In July, Metaari predicted a 37.1% CAGR growth rate for game-based learning products over the next five years. That growth would mean revenues will more than quadruple to well over $17 billion by 2023.

    Slaying the dragon

    Like many people, I would like to create a large, open world RPG. However, I realise that in game development terms, that is about on a par with trying to slay a dragon, and I need to kill more than a few lesser creatures (metaphorically speaking) to gain experience first. I already have a 3D game engine and scripting language in mind, so I mostly need a little advice as to whether the following plan to "level up" will work:- Stage 1: Design, prototype and create an FPS, along the lines of Doom or Heretic. Stage 2: Design, prototype and create an FPS with RPG elements, along the lines of Hexen or Legends of Might and Magic. Stage 3: Design, prototype and create an action RPG, along the lines of Crusaders of Might and Magic. Stage 4: Design, prototype and create an open world RPG, along the lines of the Elder Scrolls series. I kind of want to include a first person adventure along the lines of Myst in there too, but am not where it would fit in the list, if anywhere. Does this seem like a reasonable approach?
  6. Hello everyone! I'm writing research on topic - "The best game engine for a small team to create 2D indie games". I need a research consultant or any feedback in this topic because I can't do it on my own - I'm not a scientist or someone else in game engines and other things. I've chosen criteria and game engines for research. They are in image "table.png" below. As we can see, it contains 6 game engines and 10 criteria. I want to know - are this criteria and game engines suitable for my research? In "Notes" section I put quiestion to help respondents answering. In the last line - Value of criteria(in different words, multiplier), I wrote my own estimation of each criterion. This method let us to get different order of engines for every game development team. For example, if I value "Learning Curve" and "Ease of use" I will get one order, but if I value "Genre" and "Extra Benefits" I will get another order. Thank you for your attention. I hope you will leave feedback. Have a nice day :3.
  7. All games written with Orx have a profile screen that can be called up to monitor for any inefficiencies or bottlenecks. Iarwain will be demonstrating the Profile Mode for Orx over twitch tomorrow night at: Come along if you're interested to learn about it. There will be an opportunity to cover any topics after the demo. Here's some time zones as a guide to when it's on: Montréal, Canada Tue, 11 Dec 2018 at 1:00 am EST Rome, Italy Tue, 11 Dec 2018 at 7:00 am CET San Francisco, USA Mon, 10 Dec 2018 at 10:00 pm PST Sydney, Australia Tue, 11 Dec 2018 at 5:00 pm AEDT You can check other time zones here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20181211T060000&p1=165&p2=215&p3=224&p4=240
  8. Hello, I have a 'join'-function that joins an array's elements to a string. This is what I want: vector<int> a = {1,2,3} array<int, 3> b = {1,2,3} cout << join(a) << endl; // "1, 2, 3" cout << join(b) << endl; // "1, 2, 3" So I'm trying to declare the function this way: template <typename T, typename C> string join(const C<const T> &arr, const string &delimiter = ", "){ ... } But without any success. I understand, that I could declare it this way: template <typename T> string join(T &arr){ ... } or this way: template <typename Iter> string join(Iter &begin, Iter &end){ ... } But I just wonder, is it possible to implement it like: template <typename T, typename Collection> string join(const Collection<const T> &data){ ... } Thank you!
  9. I am finishing up my Game Programming and Design BS and am excited to start working in the field. My biggest concern right now is that I live in a city with almost zero game studios and will be here for a while longer as me and my family have just bought our first house a couple years ago. We do plan on moving in the future just for the purpose of change and experiencing something new and my girlfriend wants to move somewhere I can at least have opportunities to work in, but for now we are staying here while she finishes up her masters program. What I am curious about is how to go about trying to get into the industry as a remote developer. I am interested in any kind of work in the field to start off as I have been working on many different areas of game development since I was a kid in the early 90's but have finally decided to go for it in a serious way. I guess I'm just looking for some advice and harsh reality checks about breaking into this highly competitive field as a remote developer. I am new to the forums as well, so I hope I didn't break any rules I missed with this post. Thanks
  10. Hello... This is my version of the Chapter 18 CLASS exercise about throwing and popping a bunch of balls. : NOTES : Random() For the most part as I worked through the exercise things became clear but I am still confused about "scope" or w/e it is called that determines when a variable is available to be read by other sections of the code. I wanted to use Random(); to build random numbers on the fly, but it seemed that I was either calling the random very quickly in succession, so all the results were identical, or I wasn't able to access the random object I created when I wanted to. I got around this problem by creating a custom random class called RAN. This initiated Random() during the creation of the class in the main program.. so that only happened once. Then it had functions to produce the random numbers I wanted, in the type I wanted. Also I found the code to be really ugly and hard to read if I just used Random(). I was using Bytes for my 0-255 colour codes.. and as far as I know Random() is returning only floats.. so every time I had to use Random() object I had to use Convert()... this lead to it being a mess. So I build into the RAN class in a way to choose the types for me to clean this up a little. This is only using Random() to for loop 5-50 times and make a list of balls with a size of 1-25 Random rand = new Random(); List<Ball> balls = new List<Ball>(); for (int i = 0; i < Convert.ToInt32(rand.Next(5, 50)); i++) { balls.Add(new Ball(Convert.ToInt32(rand.Next(1, 25)))); } The Colour class that was using bytes was even worse. balls[1].colour.red = Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)); balls[1].colour.green = Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)); balls[1].colour.blue = Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)); And the BALL class was every worse worse!! Ball ball = new Ball(Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)), Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)), Convert.ToByte(rand.Next(1, 255)), Convert.ToInt32(rand.Next(1, 25)); I found it really strange that using Random() to get specific types would cause such ugly and bloated looking code. So I ended up making my own Random Class called Ran(). This would change the above code to.... Ran Ran = new Ran(); List<Ball> balls = new List<Ball>(); for (int i = 0; i < Ran.Int(5, 50); i++) { balls.Add(new Ball(Ran.Int(1, 25))); } balls[1].colour.red = Ran.Byte(); balls[1].colour.green = Ran.Byte(); balls[1].colour.blue = Ran.Byte(); Ball ball = new Ball(Ran.Byte(), Ran.Byte(), Ran.Byte(), Ran.Int(1, 25)); Which seems to me to be a zillion times easier to read. I has occurred to me now, while writing these notes on the lesson that I probably should have put the conversions into the BALL and COLOUR class themselves.. so it always takes a float in the constructor but stores it as a Byte.. or something like that.. but even doing that would change all the stuff like so.... Ran.Byte() -> random.Next(0,255) Ran.Int(1,25) -> ranomd.Next(1,25) I dunno.. even this looks worse than my custom thing I guess... it seems that there is something I may be missing here... as it seems ugly and hard to write. Maybe there is a better way to handle conversions instead of Convert.ToInt32 or w/e : NOTES : Code Comments I really need to start looking into making proper notes into my code. There should be a way using the ///sumemry type stuff to add ways to have VS use intense to show me what the members are expecting as I go. I will make a effort to comment more in my next one, but thought I would level this entire project with no comments.. just to see how little I understand it when I next look at it. C# Players Guide dose cover comments but after reading it a few times it is still confusing.. I need to source google page on this before next time. - THING TO DO. : NOTES : Possible Error I think there is a error in the main program, not a fatal one.. but I believe now I am going though it for my notes that I should have used <= instead of < for the for loops. As I am counting from 1 and not from 0. I will not bother fixing this.. but it is something to keep in mind. The 0 start in the Arrays and Lists is a little hard to remember. I think it is not an error though as I am using +1 in the readouts... but I am done for now and will not be checking or changing anything lol. It is time to move on. : CODE : Ball Class Colour Class Program Custom Random Class Exit Program Class : EXAMPLE OUTPUT : Well, see ya next time!
  11. As I like to say with a deep sadness in my soul, I've been failing at game dev for about three decades. I've been having fun, but I'm ultimately disappointed with my progress. So I've once again changed my goals and strategy and over engineered it. Which brings me to my current project. My new goal is to get better through repetition, but using a strategy for that repetition to make my skill development more efficient. So far, I've completed some clones of the first levels of two games (Ninja Gaiden and Super Mario Bros. for the NES), and am starting out on making the first level of Bionic Commando (also for the NES). I'm redoing the graphics in half the res of the originals for now. So far, this strategy seems to have taught me more in the few months I've been doing it, than the five years it took me to complete my last game. The difference I suppose is that I'm not going to attempt to release most of these games. I might consider polishing and releasing the ones that aren't clones. This big learning project looks like it will take me a few years, in the meantime I'll probably start other projects while still working through it but this is going to be my primary project for a long while. And something that I think I should have done in the first place so many years ago. I'd like to share my progress from time to time and hopefully have some discussions.
  12. I'm staring programming stream today: twitch.tv/ibob_code Target audience is people with some programming experience (who know what are variables, loops, functions, etc...), though not necessarily any with C++. We'll be starting from scratch. I'll do at least 5 streams and then decide what to do. Let's see where this takes me.
  13. Well, in my journey (and completion) of learning C#, I've come upon a rather peculiar problem. I don't know if it has to do with having high-functioning autism, which I do, but I seem to struggle to remember anything related to this. If I see it and am given an example I can copy and reproduce results from a simple tutorial, I can do it usually without error (if not too complex). When I attempt to write my own script, my brain completely goes white. I can't remember or figure out how to use different parts of the C# language, and it's like attempting to read Chinese when I look through Unity's Scripting API and look for other tutorials for supplemental learning. I take notes, I pay full attention to the videos and interact along with them, and I do attempt solitary practice. I just can't seem to get anything to "stick" to the point where it makes sense outside of a learning example. I can't seem to apply what I'm learning in reality, and it's becoming a great problem. Does anyone have any advice for getting this stuff to stick? I've always been a visual learner and a hands-on learner, but with logical stuff that isn't within the realms of art has always been something I've had a hard time learning and remembering later on. I appreciate any advice you can give. Thank you. EDIT: Updated on 11/11/2018 because I've been sick and busy AF with stuff outside of coding. I have been making great headway thanks to the set of tutorials made by http://rbwhitaker.wikidot.com. I was recommended this tutor by the user Septopus, and good gods has he been helpful at breaking down the stuff I didn't understand. I've been following along with the beginning C# tutorials, and will move on to MonoGame ones when I am comfortable. I cannot thank you all enough for the support and encouragement you've given. Just another sign I should keep going with this. Take care!
  14. Hi everyone. I am experienced web dev and I want to try creating games for Android, iOS platforms. I know PHP, JS, some Java. For beginning I'd like to create some maze game with many levels, different modes to play. After it I want to create some simple word game or some 2D runner. I need to choose right game engine. For now I have next options: Libgdx Unity Corona SDK So, my questions are: What game engine should I choose for beginning? What game engine should I choose for maze game? What game engine should I choose for word game and simple 2D runner? Thanks!
  15. Hi! How is XP calculated? For example, to reach level 4, the player should reach 200 XP and to reach level 5 player requires 450 XP. Is there a formula? Is there a tutorial available online? Any source where I can learn how XP is calculated? Can you give me a simple example from any existing game where the XP increases whether the player wins or loses? Thanks!

  18. Admittedly my algebra skills are pretty darn poor. Never were particularly great either but I do remember really enjoying solving quadratics at school (a long long time ago). Does anyone know of any decent free online resources to "skill up" a little? Nothing serious, it doesn't need to be an online course as such, no qualifications required (managed to do alright without anything but basic maths skills most of my life) but it would be nice to improve a little at least.
  19. Hi there! How are offers decided? and when should they be shown to the player? I've seen offer pop-ups presented to the players during festive seasons, for example 'Get 50% off this Christmas', etc., Any tips? Examples?

  22. UPDATE Update System I have just finished the back-end programming for update game data using unity asset bundle, Firebase?!! and setting some Google Firebase Features for login in Play Games Service, storing user data (Money, Username, etc), and store game data for update (asset bundles). Offline Mode I made some code to handle game if it is has no internet connection. Lighting System I try to research 2D Dynamic Lighting System with Normal Map and other methods. Animation I put some 2D animation for lighting system research. Assets My Game Artist still busy, so I still try to make the graphic assets for research purpose, I really do not want to hurt your eyes 😉.
  23. I'm very often facing one small problem when trying to learn some new stuff - hard to choose what to learn next. Even if the problem seems to be small it has a very huge impact on the final result I think. And because Game Programming offers so much to learn, I'm always feeling that I'm missing something important and wasting my time learning something not important or unneeded. Or usually, I'm afraid to focus on something specific and huge for a long time, because I think that I'll spend all my time on that particular filed and will not be able to solve another problem. So I've tried to fit all my thoughts in this questions. 1) Are you trying to cover all the aspects of Game Programming? Or you trying to focus on some specific aspects like physics, animations, or networking etc. 2) What is your way to find a new theory or whatever else for your learning process? (Manuals, Courses, Books, Documentation? etc.) 3) When you trying to learn while practicing, are you search for learning because of a problem that appears, or because you wants to try new things? How do you choose this new thing? And finally, Which of this two approaches was the best for you if any? Not actually in the scope of the topic, but I'm also very interested to hear your thoughts on this. What is Game Programming for you? How would you describe what should Game Programmer able to solve?
  24. I´ve been searching in the web since last year and couldn´t find an answer. All I find are "recommendation" posts that are based on preferences or trivial and ambiguous matters such as difficulty. If It takes me 1 year to master SFML and it takes me 2 years mastering Opengl and the other libraries needed; I would choose Opengl; because I would be wasting 1 year in something that has only hobby uses. If I invest a year in learning something I would like to make a profit from It. Also If an Engine would be moer job-wise, I would choose that instead. I am in second year (finishing) in Software Engineering (in Argentina) and have advanced knowledge in C, C++, C#, Net, Web languages; and a little of Assembly. So I don't need the basics of language. I found SFML and It comes with a bunch of services (net, audio, graphics) and used it a bit, and found it quite information-less; I heard about DirectX and Opengl, but all I find is "It is verry difficult, use SFML". If you ask me about hobby, I would like somethinc close to code and efitient; for 2d graphics that I could draw myself. If you ask me about work, I would choose something that could help me get a Job. What would be awesome is, if there is something that could be a mixture of that. Thanks in advance, Santiago.

    Quest a day challenge

    The first week of October is over. I was writing quests and NPCs. The main goal was to write at least one quest a day. And this is really interesting and fun! My total result for this week is 15 quests and 20 NPCs. There is a lot of work on polishing ‘em all but at least I captured the main idea on every quest and NPC. Today I skipped and did nothing but analyze the whole result. Tried to make a document where I can store quest data (conditions, dialogues, rewards, stages and thoughts). Now I’m planning on prototyping quests via Creation Kit (Skyrim). But still there are relatively negative moments. I’m not satisfied because there is no real motivation for a player to complete those quests (as I think) and quests a simple as hell. They are more MMO like actually. Yes, they are not about killing n amount of slimes but still they don’t force player to use game features. Like why should anyone get fun from a quest that is fully independent from the game? Or maybe good narrative is enough for an engaging & fun adventure? This made me think about the main game mechanics. Those that player will use real often regardless of the playstyle. Of course I should start from movement as my game features an extended movement system which includes crawling and climbing mechanics. Example: Assassins Creed where player MUST use those mechs, so he can climb up to a viewpoint and open quests markings on a map and he MAY use them to avoid enemy NPCs in a different type of situations. This mechanics was used in solving puzzles and getting to a right place quests. Well, will see how all of this thoughts, quests and NPCs will evolve a week after 😛
