I always loved modding games. It just was so convenient and fun. When I tried making my own game it suddenly became a bit more painful, and as things have progressed the tools I've made have become unwieldy and tedious. I noticed a lot of anons that post progress seem to have their shit pretty organized, so I thought I'd ask.

Anyone got general advice on keeping dev environments from becoming a hassle?

Not really advice, but god I wish more teams that made editors did floating docks and viewports. And a grid viewport option. And multiple viewport settings to view different things like mesh only, collision, mesh type, etc.

My policy is: make anything you want, but make visible progress before starting the next thing

Wanna make a character? model it, then go do something else if you feel like, otherwise start making the UV and textures, got bored? do something else, otherwise start doing the armature of the character.

The only important thing is making progress, as long as you don't interrupt an important process, you can't call a modeled torso and arms a character, model the entire body before calling it a day and do something else.

Just don't force yourself to do something for too long, if you decide to model ALL characters at once you will get burned, model one then work on terrain/level design, then model two more and go work on music, model another and make animations.

I was doing that for a while, but then I started doing the barebones approach to things. Eventually it led to the work environment becoming a hassle, which sucks the fun out of things and makes it a real chore. When things become a chore for a prolonged period of time that's when motivation starts dying.

Let's say I have two uniform blocks defined in my shader, call them A and B.

In my program code I generate the name and create data store for each one using

something like:

glGenBuffers(1, &buffer);

glBindBuffer(GL_UNIFORM_BUFFER, buffer);

glBufferData(GL_UNIFORM_BUFFER, bufferSize, nullptr, GL_STATIC_DRAW);

I then bind each one with: glBindBufferBase(GL_UNIFORM_BUFFER, bindingPoint, buffer);

and set the block bindings in shader: glUniformBlockBinding(handle, UBOindex, bindingPoint);

Now it's time to update the buffer data. I call glBufferSubData(GL_UNIFORM_BUFFER, offset, size, data).

Since two UBOs are bound and the above call does not accept binding point I have

no idea what will happen. Can anyone help?

Allocated a new topic for properly organizing Demo Day, as it wasn't very well organized for February 2. If no one else makes the official /v/ post for Demo Day, I'll go ahead and do it, but note that'll be 12:00 PST.

If you're not gonna be available to post at that time, you could post your demo's info here as you'd like it posted on the official topic and OP can follow up posting it once the topic is made. But you'll be up at that time anyways, won't you anon?

I've been working on this project for a bit, but just recently decided to make my own thread concerning it.

The name is bland, the assets are placeholders, and many of the core features are undergoing development.

The goals for this project are simple.

> Implement industry-standard features for this genre.

> Build a code base that is maintainable, professional, and modular.

> Develop additional features to differentiate this game from its competitors.

> Release the source code as freeware for any devs in the near or distant future to use.

The most recent playable demo can be found on itch.io

https://blukatstudios.itch.io/fps-project

I will use this thread primarily to announce the release of playable demos, and will appreciate any constructive feedback.

kek I've also looked at Sauerbraten/Cube2's source code at times, out of curiosity.

I respect its code because it works really well, but structurally.. it's very odd and unintuitive, I could never work with that.

Yeah. I really do respect how well it works, but I'll do my best to keep my project from ever being both strangely written and completely undocumented.

My most recent efforts have been toward rewriting the AI to eschew the use of Coroutines in favor of working iteratively from an Update() method that is called with the same frequency as the ActorInputHandler is. This will hopefully reduce overhead and complexity whilst making AI.cs's convenience methods more reusable.

Once I've got the existing AI (wandering and fighting) rei-mplemented, I'll work on getting some basic follower AI that operates like a turret that follows you.

1a069f  No.29919

Ok, I finished converting the existing AI to work around an Update() method. try-catch blocks have proved incredibly useful for overcoming null pointer exceptions caused by actors respawning.

I fear that my new job(I've begun the moving process and the job will start shortly) will sharply reduce my time budget. My plans right now are to prune non-functioning code and finish providing thorough documentation so that this project can serve as an entry into my portfolio.

After I am settled into my new job(ie get past the initial learning curve and busy season), I expect to budget more time toward hobbies. This project will most likely be abandoned along with my use of Unity3D. When I begin my next project, I'll mention it in this thread.

So, it's been a considerable amount of time and I've abandoned Unity3D for Godot 3.

A good portion of my time was spent focusing on work while waiting for updates to render the engine usable for C# scripting.

Now that I've been using it for a while, I find it superior to Unity in a number of aspects. Whilst it lacks features such as 3D view of an active scene, it makes up for that by providing a more source-code oriented workflow. In Unity there were many systems that simply demanded I click and drag for an hour or two instead of writing and changing a script that dynamically does the work for me. I've yet to run into anything that has forced me to not use code. Additionally, Godot core classes are both serializeable and have constructors. This means that I don't need to produce scenes/prefabs and can instead build node trees on the fly depending on the needs at the time. I haven't done anything terribly fancy with this functionality yet, but have had the pleasure of making a game out of source code and not binary files. Additionally, the one class per node seems more intuitive to me than a gamenode with however many components attached.

Once it was working well enough for my purposes, I made this project. (With a new github accunt).

https://github.com/blukatstudios/FPS_Project

This project is MIT license, so feel free to use it as the starting point for a commercial product if you want, or to reference its code if you aim to learn Godot.

The game right now has almost no content in it, and this is intentional. I'm trying to get the game functional to do some fancy functionality and I don't want a ton of content or polish features to slow down core changes or introduce regression. Once the bones of the game are put in place, I'll take a second pass to clean up the look and feel.

The latest release contains a simple multiplayer arena shooter. This will serve as a place to test the look/feel/balance of combat features when they are developed in the future.

I remember reading somewhere a book like pic related existed. I don't remember if it was on /tech/ or /v/.

A book where you program your own engine and end up with a doom clone. Probably a very simple clone but I'm looking for that book nonetheless. I haven't had much luck with google so I was hoping some of you might know the book I'm talking about. It's fine if you don't actually have it, by giving me accurate information about it (title, author, publisher, etc) I can search it on my own.

I'd apologize for killing a thread for this but the last threads in the catalog haven't shown any sign of activity since early 2016

So, at the school i'm at we're taught flash/AS3.0 and i just fail to see the value in deving with flash, since it's being killed at an ever accelerating rate...

So, is it even worth wasting my time trying to learn it properly or should i just do enough to pass the class and on my own time focus on some better language to make games or use some ready-made tool like RPG Maker (just a random example, bought them years ago) or game maker (isn't it free now?) or something like that.

I'd like to make a game in rpg maker. I know it's not the best and that I should move on to something better/more flexible but for now I really want to just make something and it works for what I am making. I have VX Ace. Are there any recommended tutorials or things I should look into? My original idea before I scaled back had two battle systems although I don't see any good example of games that do that. I don't mind limiting it to just one but if anyone has any examples of that in VX Ace project let me know.

Topic for little touches you can make to immediately make your game seem better, especially things you might not notice at first. One example, and probably the best thing I can think of, is text noises. For some reason, a lot of people forget them.

Here are some things that I think instantly make your game better, and it shows to anyone considering your game:

>Effort put into the assets

In other words, try not to have your game have shitty repetitive music, grating sound effects, pixelshit graphics, mobileshit graphics, or rip your graphics from elsewhere (unoriginal graphics, Unity store shit). The game should try to be unique and stand on its own.

>Don't use over-extravagant animations for everything

By this I mean don't do shit that looks like it would be in an old licensed Barbie game, a mobile game, or some other shovelware. Really, you can look at a lot of trash games for examples of what NOT to do, and this seems to be a common one. It's a dead giveaway that you're playing literal shovelware.

>A nice, consistent art style and theme

Whether it's cartoony, anime, abstract, realistic, or whatever, there shouldn't be anything that looks out of place unless it is expressly meant to be out of place. Also goes back to original graphics.

>Attention to contrast/color theory

For example, in a platformer, the foreground should be distinct from the background. A player should be able to take a quick glance at the screen and tell what can be interacted with and what can't, and in what ways. Thought should be put into how the game looks in screenshots; what is the general tone of the game, or the particular level, scene, etc? How easy is it to see or miss things during play?

>Special attention paid to controls

How the game feels is really important to if the game is fun or not. If the controls are awful, you might have a game that is only fun at specific moments in the game and shit everywhere else, like certain 3d Sonic games. Key configuration/gamepad binding built in is good too, particularly if it works with whatever you throw at it.

>Bugs have been removed and the game is stable

Some bugs are okay if they are fun and don't break the game, but everything else must be fixed. If you can find a bug almost immediately when playing blind, then you just know the gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Infinite Wars is a project made up from anons from 8chan that's been going for over one year now, at a slow but steady pace. I thought i'd make a thread here to show off progress and see if anyone would be interested in helping us out. These pictures are from several different versions, and as you can see most of the art is placeholder. However, codewise a lot of things are done and ready, and we're lacking in the design department.

I guess i haven't got much else to say, ill be back with some more info and screenshots.

Levels are in games

Are you retarded?

Learn good PCG OP, and you'll have an infinitude of levels.

Switched from Gamedev to music to escape a creative rut. I think I've made a lot of progress in the last month.

I'm curious what sort of music other people are making/need, I notice some music related threads died in the April 1st fiasco.

I'm curious about the music everybody else is making, assuming you don't just use placeholder music and put musicdev off until the end. Maybe we can get a general going with basic strats for GAME-music.

To start, here's a classic 'interview' with Grant Kirkhope that the Gamegrumps did back before Jontron moved east.

My own current goal is to create a wide variety of musical ideas, that I can cannibalize later for games. I'm better at dark-ambient-thudhop than anything but I fuck around with my software enough to put out all sorts of material; projects I can use as references later if they're close to a feel/sound I eventually need.

>lol why, what kind of game is it?

Forgot I made that post. Back then, the game was raw. The engine is done now. I'm doing stages, art, and sound now. An OST isn't really important. Sound effects are. I'm inept in all these things so it's taking a long time. It's a shmup.

read pic related and now I want to start. But I'm pretty much just a classical composer (little to no DAW experience).

Actually, the only musical influence I can really pin down for me is the sound of my own hitting the piano for fun. The thing I have most trouble at is writing in any style of music other than the usual sound of my hammering.

I've been trying to work out hypothetical games I could compose tracks for, determine genres I could emulate, etc. Recently I've been eyeing the idea garage sale thread here, for instance. But the vast majority of my composition sessions degenerate into hitting the piano for fun, pulling horsehair across a cello for fun, uttering mysterious chants to myself for fun, etc.

What do? I've been fooling with Caustic 3 and that's been fun, but I don't know how to think outside of my classical music box.

What DAW to use that's free, preferably open source that will let me write music using actual musical notation?

I have used pirated stuff before, Cakewalk Sonar from memory with a bunch of VSTs that were pirated, but I would much prefer to do everything legit.

maybe Musescore? It's for producing sheet music

Sup /adgq/. I'm planning on making a sort of game backend thing with a database (MySQL? or maybe a higher performance one if it matters) and a front end in whatever. Would this be at all viable? I didn't try benchmarking latencies or throughput yet so I have no idea if it's going to cause issues loading object data from a database for a game.

SQLite is usually used for an offline database

Woah, do not allow your database to be connected to in any way freely. That's begging to get fucking ruined. Create a server that communicates in some well-defined API (Protocol Buffers, Cap'n Proto, and homemade JSON are good choices), and use your database from that. There are way too many things a raw database connection can do to trust that. You should only expose the absolutely most limited functionality necessary.

That, and raw database queries are brittle. You can make changes to your database while still maintaining a stable frontend API if you use a server to broker your data. If you allow raw database connection, your API will be impossible to keep stable. This also moves all the server logic from the server side into your client side, which you don't want.

If your concern is "TCP messaging for various front ends", then bypass that shit entirely and use a proper message serialization library like protobuf.

Again, if you can access your database directly from the internet, you're doing it very fucking wrong.

Okay, so on a distributed RPG on a website that lets you play, how is MySQL not part of game dev? Or for that matter, lets say learning Canvas for the game UI?

Please kys.

Systems engineering is absolutely salient if your making a game that isn't a stupid simple 2d platformer for one player.

Totally depends on what type of game you're making, what language you're using, and everything else. Your Op is utterly useless to garner any help.

Are you making a MMO type thing? Is it being handled by a dynamic back end like PHP/Python(Flask)/Node(Express)? How often does your volatile data change? You might want to use Memcached for your data. Is your client using something like Canvas/JS for the UI? Are you using Ajax for something like Websockets for multiplayer interactions?

etc.
