update, the geometry doesn't have to be axis-aligned anymore (and the head rotates).


and how the second guy fro the above concept arts looks at the moment:

thanks for letting me know, i switched to imgur, hopefully i did it correctly this time.

as an update, here is some idea of how i'm thinking some monsters may look, but feel free to criticize or post alternates (preferably composed of cubes, though the cubes can be rotated/stretched)


also, i've used both jogl and lwjgl very lightly but didn't really notice any performance/ease-of-use difference (though i remember having trouble with displaying text in one of them, and one handling keyboard/mouse input different than java's regular listeners). i don't think i need a detailed comparison of the two, as there are many even on these forums, but any suggests for a project with such simple graphics? Alternately, At the moment, i'm using graphics2d to draw/fill polygons, should i just stick with that?

3 or 4 days into my new project, a mobility-emphasis combat platformer.

The current vision is a asymmetrical multiplayer mobility-emphasis combat platformer, where a team of flying ninjas combat a smaller team of giants or monsters.
Somewhat inspired by aot tribute.

I don't know how much further I'll be going into the project since I have midterms coming up.

But please let me know what you think about the art style and everything so far.

feel free to try it out (zipped jar file):

Plus, you can directly modify the map in ms paint or any other png editor. Of course, feel free to share your own maps.

Music composed by me, Mozart just stole it. I call it Sonate KV 331.

I'm out of cereal and am starving, please leave Feedback.

Also, I am interested in CS related research or internship for the coming summer, if anyone happens to be a recruiting college students.

And as a general update, i worked more on the project every once in a while. the current version has been inspired a bit by avatar the last airbender, and simple earth bending concepts, basically imagine throwing boulders and raising walls in front of you. but i haven't looked at it for over a year, so ...

Sorry for the extremely late reply, but maybe you'll find it useful nonetheless. my face selection algorithm throws a ray from the camera towards the 3d position the cursor corresponds to and increments the ray (by min(dx, dy, dz) where dx and dy are the distance you have to travel until you reach the next x,y,or z coordinate) until it reaches a coordinate that's not empty.

ha ha, hearing feedback feels so nice. Thanks for the comments.

Anyways, to reply to both isteinvids and wesley.laferriere, the reason I didn't put this in WIP is because my school just started, so I doubt I'll be working on it for a long time. So unfortunately, I won't be able to add physics anytime soon. But I am curious what you (weasley) had in mind? springs and dynamic cloth and electronics and optics and such would be way over my head. as for simple gravity and collision detection, it does exist, but only for blocks that have it enables (kind of like sand/gravel in minecraft). so if you use the 1st tool to throw blocks, it does have air-friction and gravity. if you use the 3rd tool (the exploding block one), the blocks that fly away after the explosion also have air-friction and gravity, but the physics is disabled once their velocity falls below a certain threshold (It should have checked acceleration too to avoid blocks that get stuck in midair, but I'll fix that next update).

i did not use external libraries, but if you were to decompile and look at the source code, you'll see there is an incomplete hardware accelerated version that uses libgdx.

hmmm. the sound file is a .wav, i don't know if for some reason that might be a problem on some computers. just to be clear, the version with sound just says "Conxeline" as opposed to "Conxeline_with_sound." I'm no expert in making sound, i just put it together in half an hour and didn't really study it. here's the music class in its entirety: http://pastebin.java-gaming.org/3eabd44077a , i've highlighted the methods actually used. I won't have access to another computer to test until December.

I'm not sure about the graphics card, i'm using Graphics2D calls on a BufferedImage (drawPolygon to draw everything on a BufferedImage not visible to user; drawImage to transfer from the BufferedImage to the screen; and fillRect to erase the BufferedImage). So I'm assuming this is software rendering. Especially since I have an experimental version using LWJGL that runs at a much faster fps, so I assume that if Java2D was using the gpu, it too would be running at a higher fps. Maybe actually turning on screen pixels is being done by intel's gpu v nvidia's gpu depending on how you run it?

yes, i have an integrated intel gpu and a nvidia gpu. thanks!

Hello,

I've been working on a Java software rendering engine with dynamic lighting and interactable world. I think I've come pretty far from where I began with absolutely no idea on 3d rendering techniques. So This is what I've come up with:



<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/nsMgT6OZTnA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/nsMgT6OZTnA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

if you view it in Youtube, the description includes a table of skip-to links and a link showing it with cubes+pyramids.

zip: https://www.dropbox.com/s/24aj6f1zl5tkod8/Conxeline.zip
no sound : https://www.dropbox.com/s/3glnrfxshd9wwp2/Conxeline%20no%20sound.zip

Also, I'm really perplexed about a bug(?) :  It runs fine from eclipse, it runs fine with command prompt java -jar Conxeline.jar, but double clicking the jar makes its frames drop to 15. If anyone might be able to help explain this, I'll be grateful. I included a .bat file that runs the java -jar Conxeline.jar for convenience, but you can type it in manually in command prompt if you prefer to avoid .bat files.

If anyone is interested in creating awesome maps to explore, let me know, there is a very clunky/rudimentary/buggy map editor that I could fix up and upload.

I would really appreciate any feedback,
Thanks!
