  • [img]http://i.snag.gy/XSmGf.jpg[/img] Not pretty at the moment, but I'm remaking a game I worked on a year ago. Pretty much beat hazard, with lots of random weapons and a rpg-like leveling system.

  • [QUOTE=Icedshot;35838225]OpenCL renderer now has support for one texture for every object under the new model of pass everything in as one large buffer reallocated asynchronously every time a new object is added Essentially i assigned the w coordinate of the uvw coordinates to be the objects gID (but later i'm going to change it to be objectid*mip_levels), then allocated an Image3D to contain all the different textures. The texture is fairly simply retrieved within the kernel by reading from any vertex's w coordinate in the usual position (with the inverse of the interpolated uv coordinates with respect to depth as the other two coordinates) As you can see from the picture below, I should probably implement mip mapping next to fix all the horrible artifacting from a distance: [IMG]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33076954/New/NeedsMipmapping.PNG[/IMG] The lighting falloff also needs to have another look taken at it, its not right at the moment[/QUOTE] Whats the performance like with this compared to just OGL? Also do you know what openCL was initially created for? I though it was to allow people to run programs (calculatons or such) on the GPU instead of the CPU

  • It has, the new one has shearing. But this works cause I knew that shearing was just at the end, just didn't know how many arguments it took though. Thanks

I though it was to allow people to run programs (calculatons or such) on the GPU instead of the CPU[/QUOTE] Probably much worse. Currently i have to copy across the entire buffer to sfml, because i haven't yet set up opengl to use the buffer directly. It's fairly slow copying across, although I multithreaded it and this speeds its up a lot. Also, because it runs one thread per triangle, large triangles can cause massive slowdown; essentially zooming in on something makes the frame time skyrocket. I can fix this in the culling phase by tesselating large triangles, however. Plus there is some general inefficiency going on currently. Yes, opencl was created to allow hardware acceleration of easily parallelisable (?) tasks. I thought it would be interesting to create the renderer as a comparison. Graphics rendering is perfect in theory for opencl - processing triangles is easy in parallel. Each triangle is (nearly) independent of other triangles, so you don't have to worry about synchronisation and the like. In practice though, opencl will probably never be nearly as efficient as pure opengl [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Mordi;35841413]Does anyone know whether or not Calibri is free to use in anything?

Content: [IMG]http://i.snag.gy/Kle7c.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE] I was actually trying to find out that exact same thing earlier today. Turns out it's copyrighted by Microsoft and you need to pay to license it: [url]http://www.fonts.com/font/ascender/calibri[/url] When looking for fonts online, make sure you check the license of the font individually, some sites let you freely download copyrighted fonts. Open Font Library is pretty good, all the fonts there are licensed under the SIL Open Font License, which lets you bundle the font with your game for free: [url]http://openfontlibrary.org/[/url]

  • Did a boatload of optimizations to blocky. The chunk compiler is now aware of neighbouring areas so it can cull edge faces correctly. The other thing is this. When bound to a VBO in transform feedback mode, the geometry shader will only write as many polygons as the VBO can hold. The query will also accurately reflect this. If I create a VBO which can only hold 1 polygon, then run a geometry shader which outputs hundreds of them, the query will only report back 1 polygon. So I had to create huge VBOs for each chunk. Which very quickly filled up the GPU's ram (all 1gb of it). Now it shrinks the VBO down to size once it has the correct poly count from the query. I also threaded terrain generation. Terrain generation is the [i]only[/i] bottleneck in the system now, extracting the chunk meshes and rendering them is lightning fast (since it all happens GPU-side). I was tempted to make a geometry shader for terrain generation, but I want it to be moddable via Lua. tldr; I made my voxel engine even faster.
