Welcome to /agdg/, home away from home.


The recent Fickle Prick spammer infestation proved that the board has unfortunately been unmoderated for the past few months. I have claimed the board and wish to return the board to a fraction of its former glory. I can't always be around, so I'd love you to apply for a board volunteer position using the email provided!

Please add your games to the wiki http://8agdg.wikidot.com/ and help make the best use of the tutorials available there. Some really dedicated anons have been hard at work to make them as helpful as possible.

Shout outs to the recently started thread at >>>/vg/27335 and the official unofficial /agdg/ Disagreement server at https://discord.gg/k2e67JB.

The rules

Please feel free discuss all aspects of game development here.

Make a thread for the game you are working, it will be lovely to follow your stuff. Shining examples of that are sgt. Shinobudev >>30078 and Fables of Laetus bros >>30488. If you want to develop your game concepts or have small tech questions, go to the design/implementation thread >>29080.

Do not spam or dox. Spoiler any NSFW images. Spamming is defined as making the exact same post over and over again, or deliberately trying to hit a thread's bump limit and will get you permabanned.

I am still working on debugging the portal generator. I have found many bugs but I still don't have much time to work. Hopefully I can have it finished within the next 12 days (but that is a stretch...). Since demo day is coming up I might decide to work on a demo without occlusion culling since that probably won't be present in the 8/8 demo day (but maybe it will be if a series of breakthroughs happen).

Today I can feel very satisfied, I created the first map to have it's portals correctly generated! The debug view crashes on larger maps but that can be fixed, it looks very promising, and I might be able to have portals generating correctly by the end of the day, this would mean that I can start working on PVS occlusion culling and all of that, and so I might have a chance to show something on demo day!

> It just happens pretty often, too often to be a coincidence.

It's not a coincidence. My bet is it's one of the crashes that I fixed in there 2 months ago. It happens if you get a bossy girl that demands to be doctor in the first place too or not? (they are less common). Either way, any dialogue crashes aren't really worth looking into for your time right now since they've likely been fixed anyway.

>but that is totally different and is probably my machine not playing nice with the game, as usual

Check the failedasserts.txt file after a crash and see if there's anything there. If there is that could help.

It's had this name for the entirety of the project. Long before I posted about it anywhere.

How the fuck do I actually come up with something and make it? I always feel like I'm just screwing around and can't come up with anything when I'm actually devving. It's only once I leave my PC and start doing something else I come up with fantastical ideas for stuff to make but it's usually never anything specific like an environment to build.

How do you guys do it?

Work iteratively.

I want to make an MMO FPS RPG game with strategic elements and persistent AI.

Do I set out to build that exact project? Nope. It's a tall order for a AAA studio with a large team of experienced devs.

- First I build a basic FPS game.

- Next I learn to do basic networking.

- Then I figure out a persistent world.

- Then I figure out MMO/styled netcode.

- Then I figure out persistent AI

- Then I add in RPG elements such as leveling.

Implementing the features of each item separately lets me make design mistakes to learn from and tweak my future plans without creating a giant entangled mess of half-implemented spaghetti code.

Come up with your dream idea and work towards it in stages. If you complete one or two of the stages, you'll have a deliverable you can make minor tweaks to and polish up should you not go any further towards your larger plans.

0/10 Just kidding

That looks super comfy and looks like you put in a lot of work in it. It can definitely blossom into a pretty fucking cool RPG adventure thing. Something within the scale of a PS2~PS3 game (considering modern software and the size of your team). I love the variety of buildings within your town and that you can walk inside all of them. I really do like how there is a calm peaceful comfy shrine outside. The river flowing throughout the entire town was a nice touch. Felt like a hotel pool with the bar at the center.

Now for real criticism: I agree with the other Anon that you could have done better planning out your houses with simpler shapes first. I feel like the main town buildings are too close to each other and some buildings feel disproportionally small and claustrophobic inside. Height:Width measurements are sort of erratic. This would have been corrected if more testing with the player running around to get a better feel. That's all I got. Good luck. Keep on trucking.

Sup. I have been toying with the idea of a fighting game for a few hours now and honestly I'm just an ideaguy with more time than sense. I don't know how to code or even what would be required to make a fighting game, so I was hoping to get a sense of scale here. Basically what do I need to know, what I should research, etc. I already know that I'd have to research the subject matter I'm basing the game on, as well as learning a lot more about fighters in general since my knowledge is novice at best.

Without going into details it'd be a anime-styled fighter with around 13 characters starting out., with each character having his/her own stage and something like a story/arcade mode.

Demo day was a big success thank you all who participated. The majority of the short playthrough videos you guys shared involved throwing her off the map. Was amusing. I am back on development. Working on revamping Shinobu's head mesh.

Her current head mesh was cute but I don't think it had the right Shinobu feel. Namely she did not have enough of a Shinobu look when angry. Image 1 shows the demo day head mesh. Image 2 shows the new head rework so far. Her eyelashes are not yet colored and need some tweaking so they don't look too unkempt. Another big reason for a rework were the eyes. For a long time I've been using squashed spheres to fit anime shaped eyeballs into her eye socket to compromise for the non spherical eye socket shape. This lead to numerous problems with her eye look at logic namely causing inaccurate look at quaternions. So this new head mesh will get rid of eyeballs and eyesockets and replace them with a poly fill that will be UV mapped with the pupil texture. Video 1 shows the old squashed eyeball method. A last minor rework in the new head mesh is giving her a jaw. She was too cartoony with a round head so this should help her look better. Images 3 and 4 show off before and after jaw line.


That would have been another animation. Didn't have enough time. Definitely in the future.

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?

So, i feel is time for me to pay homage to a manga that had the downfall of having a pedophile as a writer. I can see Kenshin fall down not because of absence of quality or relevance but solely because of agendas.

I wanna make a Rurouni Kenshin fighting game to keep the idea that the art is separate from the artist.

So, how do i make a fighting game?

I've got no notions on how to program but i feel like i'm destined to do it

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?

Level 1 loads flawlessly, but trying to load level 2 throws a parse error that completely stops the game from loading any more. With my flawed programming knowledge, I assume it's missing a file somewhere.

Where do you find people for art, music, writing, programing/scripting, design? Are there any tips for building a team and keeping it together?

Where do you find people? What about unique skill sets or knowledge that goes beyond basic stuff like specific art styles or subject matter?

Unless you're recycling assets out the ass art will take up more than 20%. You're going to need to provide half the assets, utilize money or find someone who's as motivated for your game as you are.

You might be right. I don't really mind doing ether of those things. My main issue is that I'm not sure where to start looking other then maybe gamejolt and I don't even know if that's a good place.

My plan was to go to game jams or something to build connections. For art though you can probably find someone starving for commissions

the only way to get a good crew is to know each other irl. Games studios big or small did not come out of bunch people working over internet. That might work too I think if the project is free and really fucking something and not just another rpg maker type game (linux kernel for example)
