D3D 12 - Is there a reference device - Link Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:17:38

I cant seem to locate any information about this but in the past Direct3D has had a reference device used to help find bugs in drivers and such. In D3D 12 however I can get the WARP adapter with no problem but I cant seem to find any info about a reference device. In D3D 11 there was a reference device and a WARP device so I assumed this would still be the case. Is this still the case or am I just missing something

PhysX - translating the entire scene - Link Wed, 07 Oct 2015 13:27:11

First off for a while I was fairly sure this is a precision issue but at this point I think it might just be my poor use of the API to which Im very new. In short I have an unbounded scene for which I keep a fairly local set of collision data which needs to be updated as the player moves through the world. I run my updates regularly every N units which for testing purposes is something small eg 512. Now collision is working just fine but every time the player crosses the update boundary theres a chance that the character controller CCT will clip through geometry. In case this is confusing heres an example I keep a 5x5 node section of the world in memory which is always relative to the upper left corner of the current player frustum. As the player moves say verticallythrough the world and crosses a node boundary the 5 bottom nodes go out of scope while 5 new ones need to be loaded at the top. Also geometry in the rest of the nodes needs to be transformed to a new coordinate system. So relatively everything stays the same but as the CCT crosses a node boundary all geometry along with the player will need to be transformed back towards the origin by the size of one node. A few things worthwhile of a mention - I have decoupled my players position from the usual single precision coordinate vector and keep a PxExtendedVec3 duplicate that functions as the only readwrite proxy for PhysX. I downcast this vector to single precision for my drawing code but never the other way around - I currently only have box geometry which is always unit-aligned eg my world correlates 1 unit to 1 pixel and all geometry is pixel-aligned but is stored as single precision - Im using PxRigidDynamicsetGlobalPose to update my geometry and PxControllersetPosition to transform the CCT at update boundaries. The former is single precision while the latter is double precision. This might be the root of my problems although I doubt it since all geometry that is single precision is unit-aligned and the more volatile position of the player is stored as double precision. - I havent looked into PhysXs collision code but one thing I did notice while testing is some nudging that happens when the CCT keeps walking into a wall even when touching a wall head on it moves forward by 0.1 units 8 times and then bounces back by -0.8 units. It does this over and over again which initially introduced jitter into my drawing code. I ended up snapping the player to the closest full unit after every CCT update. Initially I assumed this had to do with the minDist argument to PxControllermove but apparently it doesnt. Still once again this small intrusion might well be the root of the problem when suddenly the entire scene gets transformed. Clipping happens 10 of the time but thats more than enough to clip the player as they wallhug across an update boundary a few times. Now Ive read up on setGlobalPose and the caveats it imposes but nowhere does it imply that it would be unsafe to transform an entire static scene like this. Ive also tried moving the CCT back by a short distance at update crossings and frankly according to my debug output the CCT isnt even close enough to the geometry to be subject to precision issues. But it still keeps clipping into it. So either Im missing something or PhysX doesnt quite like what Im doing. Id post some code but frankly its a bit messy so Id rather post snippets as needed. Has anyone had experience with something like this or can suggest what I might be missing

About dynamic vertex pulling - Link Wed, 07 Oct 2015 10:54:01

Hi everyone I look forward to implement the technique described in this Article which looks fine by itself but I got some questions about the implementation details. First of all the general idea seems to be that you have one big Vertex- and one big Indexbuffer to work with. You then put every mesh you want to be rendered in there and store the offsets and index-counts in an other datastructure which goes together with the instance-data into another buffer. Then all you need to do is to issue a call to something like DrawInstanced with the maximum amount of indices a mesh in the buffer has and walk the instance-data buffer to get the actual vertexdata from the buffers. If the mesh uses less indices as we told the Draw-Call it says one should just use degenerate triangles and keep an eye on the vertexcounts. Now the article gives us a scenario about rendering a forest with different types of trees and LOD-levels. 1 Why even bother with LODs when we draw everything with the same vertexindex-count anyways Idea Use multiple instance-buffers with different ranges of vertexindex-counts and use more DrawCalls instead of wasting time on drawing overhead vertices on simple LOD-levels. Next problem is about the updating of the instance-buffer. Since of course we want some frustum-culling or moving objects if we are drawing a huge forest we would need to do that every frame. The Article suggests that one should keep a CPU-copy of the data in the buffer and if something changes just copy everything over again. 2 Wouldnt that take a huge impact on performance if we have to copy thousands of matrices to the GPU every frame Also Im pretty sure you would hit a GPU-sync point when doing this the naive way. Idea I havent looked to deep into them yet but couldnt you update a single portion of the buffer by using a compute-shader or just do the full frustum-culling on the GPU If not there are those Map-Modes other than WRITE_DISCARD worth a shot where the data stays to update only single objects Or do I just throw this into an other thread use doublebuffering to help with sync-points and forget about it The last question is regarding textures. I assume that in the article the textures are all of the same size which makes it easy to put them all into a TextureArray as the Author is doing at least. 3 But I dont know much about the textures I have to work with other than that they are all sized by a power of two. Im using D3D11 at the moment so TextureArrays is as far as I would get. Next problem is that my textures can be dynamically streamed in and out. Idea Make texture-arrays of different sizes and assume how many slots we would need for the given size. For example pre-allocate a TextureArray with 100 Slots of the size 1024 and if we ever break that boundry or a texture gets cached out allocate moreless and copy the old one over. Slow but would work. Then use the shaders registers for the different arrays to get access to them. The other thing I could do is to allow this kind of rendering technique only for static level-geometry and to try to keep the textures for them in memory the whole time. Does anyone maybe have better solutionsideas to the problems than me or can give me some other useful input about this technique Thanks in advance

Question about C if statements for Simple Game - Link Wed, 07 Oct 2015 10:44:22

Hey guys so Ive done all my programming in C up to this point and the syntax and logic surround IF ELSE statements seems to be a bit different. Im learning the rules around C now and I cant seem to figure out why my little 20 line pick a number game isnt working. Maybe someone can clue me in Heres the code. Console.WriteLineLets play a game Im looking for a number 1-10 int rightNumber -100 int points 100 while rightNumber lt 3 rightNumber gt 3 rightNumber int.ParseConsole.ReadLine if rightNumber gt 3 Console.WriteLineToo high points points - 1 else if rightNumber lt 3 Console.WriteLineToo Low points points - 1 else Console.WriteLineYou go it Console.ReadLine Console.WriteLineYour points equal points So basically its a loop that continues to loop until you select the correct number. If you get the wrong number you are notified and then a point is subtracted from your score. I want each section of my IF ELSE statement to do two things 1. Notify the player that they were too highlowcorrect and 2 if they were too low or two high a point is added to their score. In C IF a statement was true you could have it generate multiple effects. For some reason Im having a hard time making that happen in C. Can anyone clue me in

Drawing graphics in C wout APIs - Link Wed, 07 Oct 2015 01:04:46

What is the lowest possible level of C bottom up I can use to draw graphics on a custom non-console screen window Is OpenGL the minimum requirement for drawing graphics or was openGL itself written in C and therefore you could essentially write your own openGL-like API Can you communicate directly with drivers and graphics card using C I guess my questions bottom line is this How does C communicate with the graphics drivers and hardware I know Im probably never gonna need to do this I can just use SFML or whatnot but I just like to know out of curiosity. Thanks in advance.

glfw - Toggle Fullscreen to Windowed to Fullscreen - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 22:11:02

Does anyone know how to toggle fullscreen to windowed in GLFW I understand that the context is lost during the transition as you have to use glfwCreateWindow however I have passed the original context as a parameter to that method which I was under the impression shared the context resources I then destroy the old window and mark the new context as current With GLFW we have to create a new window and destroy the old after making sure we enable the new context GLFWwindow tempWindowPtr glfwCreateWindow this-gtrenderWindow_Width this-gtrenderWindow_Height this-gtrenderWindow_Title.c_str this-gtrenderWindow_Fullscreen this-gtrenderWindow_DisplayMonitor NULL this-gtrenderWindow_hWnd iftempWindowPtr GLogManagerGetSingleton.WriteLineError setting new display settings. GLogManagerError this-gtshouldApplyNewSettings false return GR_FAILURE glfwDestroyWindowthis-gtrenderWindow_hWnd destroy the old window this-gtrenderWindow_hWnd tempWindowPtr swap the pointers glfwMakeContextCurrentthis-gtrenderWindow_hWnd I then proceed to recreate my callbacks as I understand the glfw state as well as the OpenGL state is lost but as I understood it the resources ie textures shaders etc wont need to be recreated However it seems that I just get a black screen when running the above. Running the output through gDebugger i get Debug String Detected error The debugged process asked for an extension function pointer glActiveTexture from one render context but called this function pointer in another render context context 2 which suggests the context sharing isnt what I thought it was....... anyone able to point me in the right direction here thanks Jamoflaw

Scrolling The leap from Slordax to Commander Keen - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 21:23:04

One of my all-time favourite books is Masters of Doom. Ive been reading it since Doom3 was released but upon reading it again Im confused on something in the chapter Dangerous Dave.... The team was busy working away on the vertical shoot-em-up Slordax and it clearly shows smooth vertical scrolling for the background. However when John Romero discovers the Super Mario Bros 3 Demo one morning hes blown away by smooth horizontal scrolling. What puzzles me is why would he be so shocked when John Carmack had already achieved scrolling in Slordax Is there a difference in difficulty in programming a vertical-scrolling background and that of a game such as Super Mario Bros Surely scrolling is scrolling whether vertical or horizontal

Volume rendering uing 3D texture as intermediate storage - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 19:35:12

Hi all Ive read a couple of presentations on volume rendering. Frostbite volume rendering AC4 volume fog They are using 3D texture as intermediate storage that is later used for ray marching so that you can raymarch once for multiple volume entities. However you need to voxelize the volume entities into this intermediate 3D storage ... can anyone explain how to achieve this i think since the target rt is 3D texture we need to render the volume entities into each depth slice of 3D texture with adjusted nearfar plane ... but not sure. thanks in advance.

Expression templates for arguments of different types - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 19:02:22

I am implementing expression templates for Vector3ltgt template class in C. Actually I have it working very well but only when arguments of the same type are involved. Lets say Vector3ltdoublegt and Vector3ltdoublegt or double scalar and Vector3ltdoublegt etc. In the case of for example multiplying Vector3ltdoublegt and Vector3ltfloatgt compiler prompts error as it these are two different objects and it is unable to perform float to double conversion by itself. To solve this issue I had two ideas 1. Define all necessary classes and operators in terms of possible interactions float and double float and int etc. Which is very very wrong approach 2. Create templates using auto and decltype I managed to achieve somewhat a success. I can create a Vector3ltanything1gt and perform operations on it with other Vector3ltanything2gt. So it is a clean and nice solution as it does not require to define all possible conversions. However when I try to perform an operation between any scalar and Vector3ltanythinggt I get errors. Different operators in the code below it would be Vector3ltDATA_TYPE_LgtVector3ltDATA_TYPE_Rgt and scalar DATA_TYPE_LVector3ltDATA_TYPE_Rgt interfere. Separately both operators work fine. However when both are present compiler always chooses scalarVector3ltgt operator and of course fails to deduce arguments when Vector3ltgtVector3 operator should be used. I managed to solve this situation only by providing additional class ScalarltDATA_TYPEgt which embraces the scalar value. However then I have to call some function creating Scalar class explicitly out of lets say double. This is something I would like to avoid. So I thought of two solutions 1. Make the operator create Scalar class transparently out of float or double etc. so no explicit usage of function creating Scalar would be needed 2. Redesign the code so operators wouldnt interfere However I did not manage to achieve any of those. Any help would be very appreciated. The Code below works fine in VS2015.

Using a physics engine on the server - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 17:13:41

Hello. Let me start with a few details about the game Im developing. real time Client - Server Server is the authority Game is 3D but played on the XZ plane topdown view. The client captures a state of the keyboard every frame input and every 33 ms sends a collection of those states to the server. The server receives those inputs and applies them. So far what I had was this on the server forstdsize_t i 0 i lt _entities.size i auto entity _entities91i auto client _clients91i forauto inputState newInputs91client-gtid for each input of the client update its position and looking direction forauto input inputState.inputs if input.movingForward entity.x input.dir.x cfg.playerSpeed dt entity.y input.dir.y cfg.playerSpeed dt entity.dir input.dir _lastInputIds91client-gtid inputState.id As you can see the client does not have the authority on his position or speed - only his direction. But now I want to use bullet for physics because I will need collision detection. I have changed the above code to forstdsize_t i 0 i lt _entities.size i auto entity _entities91i auto client _clients91i auto inputs newInputs91client-gtid if inputs.empty entity.rigidBody-gtsetLinearVelocitybtVector30.0f 0.0f 0.0f forauto inputState newInputs91client-gtid forauto input inputState.inputs if input.movingForward auto velX input.dir.x cfg.playerSpeed auto velZ input.dir.y cfg.playerSpeed entity.rigidBody-gtsetLinearVelocitybtVector3velX 0.0f velZ else entity.rigidBody-gtsetLinearVelocitybtVector30.0f 0.0f 0.0f entity.dir input.dir _lastInputIds91client-gtid inputState.id ... _world-gtstepSimulationdt this is the bullet world Now I set the linear velocity of the entitys rigid body and after a while I call _world-gtstepSimulation. But this is not good because the client sends multiple inputs packed together. By doing this I am ignoring all of this inputs except the last one.. If I try to update the world inside the loop I will be updating physics for all other rigid bodies in the world which I do not want. What I want is to somehow update the same rigid body multiple times but not update any other rigid bodies. Is this the way it is normally done Does anyone know a way to do this in bullet Thanks a lot. Edit I can of course move the bodies manually using btRigidBodytranslate. But is this a good solution

New to Andriod development - two questions - Link Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:12:31

Started playing with Android Studio 1.4 last week end. The Java implementation looks pretty straight forward. My real goal is native CC development to see if I can get my game engine to run on it. Its mostly to see if I can do it. From what I can tell theres two ways to write native CC for Android. 1 Write a function in CC and link it to a Java native function call. 2 Avoid Java all together and use the NDKs Native Activity to implement purely in native code. Would this be correct Also does NDKs compiler support C 11 features Thanks.

You may have missed out on purchasing a PS4 console for a discountedprice from past sales but Sony is about to fix all that. The company announced on Thursday that its officially dropping the price of the PS4 making it cheaper than ever. Sony also announced its big holiday lineup in the process. DONT MISS Microsoft made the ultimate laptop the Surface Book The move isnt surprising considering that Sony cut the price of the PS4 in Japan last month suggesting it wouldapply the same move to its global sales in the future. Starting October 9th the PS4 will cost just 349.99 in the U.S. or 50 less than before. In Canada the PS4s new price will be CAD 429.99.

Removing Payment Feature From Skyrim Workshop - Link Thu, 23 Apr 2015 17:07:29

Were going to remove the payment feature from the Skyrim workshop. For anyone who spent money on a mod well be refunding you the complete amount. We talked to the team at Bethesda and they agree. ltbrgt ltbrgtWeve done this because its clear we didnt understand exactly what we were doing. Weve been shipping many features over the years aimed at allowing community creators to receive a share of the rewards and in the past theyve been received well. Its obvious now that this case is different. ltbrgt ltbrgtTo help you understand why we thought this was a good idea our main goals were to allow mod makers the opportunity to work on their mods full time if they wanted to and to encourage developers to provide better support to their mod communities. We thought this would result in better mods for everyone both free ampamp paid. We wanted more great mods becoming great products like Dota Counter-strike DayZ and Killing Floor and we wanted that to happen organically for any mod maker who wanted to take a shot at it. ltbrgt ltbrgtBut we underestimated the differences between our previously successful revenue sharing models and the addition of paid mods to Skyrims workshop. We understand our own games communities pretty well but stepping into an established years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating. We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly even though we believe theres a useful feature somewhere here. ltbrgt ltbrgtNow that youve backed a dump truck of feedback onto our inboxes well be chewing through that but if you have any further thoughts let us know.
