Between The Realities - Announce!

Between The Realities - Announce!

Between The Realities is an indie game in the genre of first-person shooter, which is being developed by our creative association Antology Games Studio. At the moment the game is in active development at the pre-beta stage, the release is expected in the winter of 2019. Our project is entirely inspired by oldschool games of the late 90s, such as Blood and Kingpin: Life of Crime, and by films like Streets of Fire (1984) and Dark City (1998). Annotation: Another world. Different rea

Voxel Madness

Voxel Madness

After three days of intense work, I am proud to show you this amazing screenshot: What is so special about this image? I am now successfully uploading voxel data to the GPU and writing lighting into another texture, using a texture buffer object to store the voxel positions as unsigned char uvec3s. The gray color is the ambient light term coming from the Blinn-Phong shading used in the GI direct light calculation. The next step is to create a light grid for the clustered forward rende

Shadow Caching

I have shadow caching working now in Turbo. This feature is already in Leadwerks Game Engine 4. The idea is that static scene geometry should not be redrawn when a dynamic object moves. Imagine a character (6000 polys) walking across a highly detailed room (100,000 polys), with one point light in the room. If we mark the scene geometry as static and the character as dynamic, then we can render a shadow map cache of the static scene once. When the character moves, the static cache is copied into

Steam Release & Bladequest: Chapter Two!

Steam Release & Bladequest: Chapter Two!

Hi guys! Bladequest – The First Chapter now finally is on Steam! I am very excited to see how it is going! Check it out if you want! I think it’s pretty cool to have my game on Steam :). Recently I did some redesign and restructuring, affecting my logo, the newsletter and the website. I actually shut the website down and now use another service, which is easier for me to setup and maintain, so I have more capacity to develop Chapter Two! Preproduction and conception for “Chapter T

Physically-based Rendering

Physically-based Rendering

An online implementation of physically-based rendering in the Khronos Github was pointed out to me by @IgorBgz90 and @shadmar. This is very useful because it's an official implementation of PBR that removes a lot of guesswork. Here is my first attempt, which is not using any cubemap reflections: And here it is with cubemap reflections added: I plan to use the real-time global illumination system to generate the reflection data, instead of using environment probes.

Adding LOD to the Model Class

The Model class is being slightly restructured to add support for built-in LOD without the need for separate entities. Previously, a list of surfaces was included in the Model class itself: class Model { std::vector<shared_ptr<Surface> > surfaces; }; This is being replaced with a new LOD class, which allows multiple lists of surfaces containing less detail to be stored in the same model: class LOD { std::vector<shared_ptr<Surface> > surfaces; }; class Model

Bladequest – The First Chapter Conclusion

Bladequest – The First Chapter Conclusion

Hi guys, First of all check out the newest episode of DevTalk, showing some progress of the development of Bladequest: Chapter Two! Bladequest – The First Chapter is available since about one and a half month now and so far and has totally exceeded my expectations with about 2000 downloads in total. It was a very interesting project for me, and I got a lot of positive feedback and you definitely want to see more from Bladequest. I think the foundation is there, to create a really cool

Umbra Sucks. Check out our Easy No-Bake Occlusion Culling

Umbra Sucks. Check out our Easy No-Bake Occlusion Culling

With the help of @martyj I was able to test out occlusion culling in the new engine. This was a great chance to revisit an existing feature and see how it can be improved. The first thing I found is that determining visibility based on whether a single pixel is visible isn't necessarily a good idea. If small cracks are present in the scene one single pixel peeking through can cause a lot of unnecessary drawing without improving the visual quality. I changed the occlusion culling more to record t

Accidental Masterpieces

Accidental Masterpieces

Lighting is nearly complete. and it is ridiculously fast! There are still some visual glitches to work out, mostly with lights intersecting the camera near plane, but it's nearly perfect. I turned the voxel tree back on to see what the speed was, and to check if it was still working, and I saw this image of the level partially voxelized. The direct lighting shader I am using in the rest of the scene will be used to calculate lighting for each voxel on the GPU, and then bounces will be performed

Smoothed car drive - Leadwerks 4.5

I'm just happy to get this work  here is a demo: This is actually better than driving in 4.3 because cars are now  able to jump or crash without experimenting crazy rotations or whatever  👍     Here is the script to make this:   > Here the values I used:       > And here what changed: Is written in dark: ------------------------------------- function Script:Start() -- [...........] -- Construit les amort

Map Viewer available to subscribers

A map viewer application is now available for beta subscribers. This program will load any Leadwerks map and let you fly around in it, so you can see the performance difference the new renderer makes. I will be curious to hear what kind of results you see with this: Program is not tested with all hardware yet, and functionality is limited.

Map Loading, Materials, Shaders, and other Details

I have map loading working now. The LoadMap() function has three overloads you can use:: shared_ptr<Map> LoadMap(shared_ptr<World> world, const std::string filename); shared_ptr<Map> LoadMap(shared_ptr<World> world, const std::wstring filename); shared_ptr<Map> LoadMap(shared_ptr<World> world, shared_ptr<Stream> stream); Instead of returning a boolean to indicate success or failure, the LoadMap() function returns a Map object. The Map object gives

On how to loose half day

I had a window popping up every time i was closing the game.Error below: Debug Assertion Failed! Expression: __acrt_first_block == header At first i thought is something related to me not deleting all pointers or closing the app the wrong way.So i fix that up same error. More investigating i figure it up that somehow is related to poco libs that i use to connect over tcp.If game exit code was before calling poco there was no exception.

Joints

Recently i posted a simple car made with joints without too much explanations... so What is a joint? This video shows joints in action. At the end, the stand alone executable and the complete project.   The following text and figure is from the "ode-latest-userguide", figures are also form the JV-ODE documentation: In real life a joint is something like a hinge, that is used to connect two objects. It is a relationship that is enforced between two bodies so that
