@basil_

How do you make those?

@ndnwarrior15

I've been meaning to make something on perspective for months now, so here it is.



All perspective, no matter how many vanishing  points, curved or otherwise, is based on planes of one or more forms converging on a point. Orthographic perspective is just when the points are an infinite distance off the paper (making the "converging" lines parallel). Everything after that just distorts an increasing amount of planes. 5D (or fisheye) is actually how cameras work, with the lenses distorting the forms onto curved vanishing points.

... just ignore this post if I'm rambling  Tongue

I did a little sketch for a project.



So does this thread also count for animating? Or should I keep posting my animation stuff in the other thread? Here goes nothing anyway.

Here's a cool pose from an animation I'm currently working on:

<snip>

It's interesting because our robots are really big, bulky, and heavy. This is one of the few instances where they athletically move more akin to what you see in We Shall Wake.

That's impressive! What program are you using for animations?

VaTTeRGeR suggested this thread, in which we can post our studies / sketches to get critique. I think having a public outlet for art / studies would be a fun way to boost productivity and improve.

To start things off, here's what I drew today:

A sketchbook section, like you'd find on conceptart.org or polykarbonbbs.com, would be good to have.

EDIT

Here's the what I drew today thread.

I discovered my old soldering kit in the basement, had a rush of nostalgia, and decided to have some fun with my Raspberry Pi Zero.

I soldered up my board's GPIO pins and started messing with it. I got a "server up" indicator light going:

Click to Play


I was going to do more but I think I fried the board by using a bad power supply when I was testing it in headless mode. Good thing these things only cost $5!

This is an XBOX 360 controller with blue LED lighting.

L2 and R2 are not buttons on this controller, but axes from -1 (not pulled at all) to 1 (fully pulled). No buttons are pressed when I pull the trigger.

The DPAD is also counted as 2 axes, being either 0, 1, or -1 on each axis.

Maybe you should have a notes section on the database to track these irregularities?

I finished my first internship yesterday, so I have to go back to school this week Tongue.

When I went home, I noticed the raspberry pi zero is not out of stock anymore, so I bought a kit. That should be fun.

I also made a script that corrupts IP cameras.

Don't you think template libraries, etc are a bit overkill for the purpose?

I completely agree. Let's turn a 25 year old standard on its head so we can develop our own HTML, but with inheritance. This way we won't need to use templates anymore. /s

If you stop to reinvent every wheel, you'll never make a car.

Just use templates and JQuery like the rest of us.

Sounds good, looking forward to the art updates.

By hit pause, I didn't mean invincibility. I mean delay the rendering for a few milliseconds after each hit to make damage more impactful.
18  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Bit Siege - 2D Competitive Multiplayer PvP Game. (Patch v2.1 out now!) on: 2016-04-29 03:02:53
I like how this game is going! I can see myself playing with my friends very soon Cheesy. I kind of wish the art style on the video thumbnail was in the game, though. The game's art as a whole seems lacking in shading and detail; it all looks very flat. I think if you took some time to work on game juice and art, it'd make the gameplay much more responsive and smooth. Even just adding some screenshake, camera panning, hit pauses, etc. would make it feel better. Vlambeer did a good video on this, one I'd recommend you watch. Although if you want to focus on the gameplay instead that's just as good, just keep these in the back of your mind.

Keep up the good work!

It seems that if the project is too easy or perfect for your experience, you should work alone. If it's too difficult, you shouldn't bother in the first place.

Yes.

At some point you might be able to work with other programmers. But right now, with only one project done, you have a bit more work to do before that's a possibility. And by then you'll probably avoid teams altogether.
20  Discussions / Community & Volunteer Projects / Re: Looking for other programmers for a stealth shooter on: 2016-04-10 00:37:46
I don't mean to sound harsh, but you've got to be realistic about this.

You can do this yourself. Even if you couldn't do it yourself, adding more people won't help. Nine women don't make a baby in one month. The only help you'll need is with art / audio. Don't even think about getting help with that until you have more than a ray-casting AI demo. Hire artists when you have an actual game to play.

That said, I've been meaning to make a game like this, so I'll be interested to see how this game goes. Godspeed.

22  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Tetradecagon on: 2016-03-27 05:43:02
Congratulations on greenlighting; putting your project out there is probably the biggest hurdle to face. That said, your work's not done; there are some serious issues with your page that you should sort out ASAP since the majority of your votes will come within the first week or two.

The icon. This is the most important part. Everything else you've done for this whole project will be for nothing if your icon doesn't catch attention. It's the first impression of the entire game. Yet, the text doesn't contrast to the background, it's not centered, none of the elements "pop", and, most importantly, it's not animated. Make it animated. You have the luxury of marketing a game simple enough to compress into a single small moment of gameplay, but you haven't taken advantage of it. Try to compress your entire game into a 3-second gif like this, because that's all a voter will give you: 3 seconds.

The trailer. This is one of the big mistakes I made in RFLEX's greenlight; no variety. Right now, your trailer is sixty seconds of the same gameplay (albeit with some awesome music). You either need to shorten this, or add some stimuli in. If I can watch 5 seconds of your trailer and not be surprised for the rest of the video, you've done something wrong. Show some deaths, show some selling points, add in a gag, pan the camera a bit, anything to make it more than just bare gameplay footage.

The description. Again with the contrasting text; white-on-white text is not good for the eyes. Second, while I don't think is going to detract from your game, this bothers me a bit. I don't have any problems with borrowing ideas from my greenlight, but I think, in its similarities, you missed an opportunity to create your own personality for the game's marketing. I think there was room for creating something new rather than iterating on the previously existing.

Quote from: RFLEX greenlight
RFLEX is a fast-paced and challenging neo-arcade game. Frantically dodge your way to the high score in a series of rage-inducing levels while enjoying a kickass, original soundtrack. Experience trippy visuals while being pulled into a never-ending abyss of addicting, non-stop action.

RFLEX is about dodging rectangles coming from multiple directions using a unique joystick-like control scheme for as long as is humanly possible. It seems simple at first, but quickly erupts into a brutally difficult experience.

Quote from: Tetradecagon greenlight
Tetradecagon is a fast-paced, challenging, arcade game. Frantically bounce a ball throughout a polygon of ever increasing sides while listening to three kickass, original soundtracks. Experience a never ending abyss of addicting, non stop, rage inducing action.

Tetradecagon can be thought as "pong on steroids." Unlike pong however, you bounce the ball off of the highlighted sides of a user-controlled polygon for as long as humanly possible. It seems extremely simple at first, but it quickly turns into a brutally difficult game.

You made a good game, one that I want to add to my steam library in the future. Fix these soon; every second delayed is an impression lost.

Good luck Smiley.

If you can visibly see the border, it doesn't tile well. Maybe redraw it in tiled mode, where the canvas repeats while you draw (not sure if you have that in inkscape).
24  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Grass Texture on: 2016-02-23 22:02:02
Maybe fill it with a light green and draw in little patches of grass with a darker green. Then add some slight noise in the background. Otherwise it just looks like noise, which is a bit unappealing to the eye when tiled.

Also: give yourself more pixels to work with. It seems more complex at first, but I promise you won't regret it. You can fit so much more detail into each tile.

I've been messing around with google cardboard for a bit. I'm surprised by how smooth it feels, for 2 lenses and a phone screen Smiley.

I know someone who is now writing a game in C++ and SDL with only sublime and gcc command line
I am not even joking...
Has been for months now too, its not like the person gave up early.

I was doing around the same thing a few weeks ago: I used Atom with a ton of C++ plugins, a terminal, and CMake.

It's surprisingly easier than I thought. In some ways, it's even better than an IDE, in that I don't have to wade through a bunch of menus to get something done. On the other hand, autocompletion and error-checking is a bit.. off. Then again, I'm on Linux; the only other good IDE I've found there is CLion, but that costs money Tongue.

Hello.

I have a little while before this game downloads; here's the games that aren't for Linux.

Just ask for any game here that isn't crossed out, and I'll PM it to you. You must be a member of JGO for at least 2 months to get a key. 1 key per person.
