The Blacksmith Releases: Executable, Assets, Tools and Shaders

Hey. We’ve promised to release the assets and our custom project-specific tools and shaders from The Blacksmith realtime short film. Well, here they are.

First of all, you are welcome to download the executable of the demo.

The assets from the project, along with the custom tech, come in two main packages for your convenience: ‘The Blacksmith – Characters’ and ‘The Blacksmith – Environments’.

I was a bit puzzled how the micro shaders at Shadertoy work, but i think i found a good formula now:

Replace Shadertoy's pixel shader code  void mainImage( out vec4 f, vec2 w ) with:

Code: [Select]
#define f gl_FragColor
// modify values until it fits
#define objectsize 500
#define leftright 0
vec2 w = gl_FragCoord.xy / iResolution.xy * objectsize + leftright;
void main()

3D-Tech News Around The Web / (WebGL) ioquake3.js
« on: June 26, 2015, 05:33:28 PM »
ioq3.js is a port of ioquake3 to the web using Emscripten. It was heavily inspired by inolen's quakejs, but aims to be simpler and up-to-date with the latest Emscripten features. It also aims to implement high-speed multiplayer matches via WebRTC.

Note: The Quake 3 engine is open source. The Quake III: Arena game itself is not free. You must purchase the game to use the data and play Quake 3 with ioquake3, or play another game made with this engine. This WebGL demo uses the official shareware demo assets.

Default arena works; full version not tested, i would have to search my Dreamcast version in the attic  :-*

3D-Tech News Around The Web / (WebGL) Microsoft Flight Arcade

About Flight Arcade

Flight Simulator has been on the cutting edge of computing for over three decades. Learn about bringing it to the modern web.
 Graphics The first version of Flight Simulator shipped in 1980 for the Apple II and, amazingly, it was in 3D! That was a remarkable achievement. It’s even more amazing when you consider that all of the 3D was done by hand, the result of meticulous calculations and low-level pixel commands. When Bruce Atwick tackled the early versions of Flight Simulator, not only were there no 3D frameworks, but there were no frameworks at all! Those versions of the game were mostly written in assembly, just a single step away from ones and zeroes that flow through a CPU.
When we set out to reimagine Flight Simulator for the web, we couldn’t help but think about the contrast of creating 3D then and now. Modern coding seems almost luxurious as we sculpt 3D worlds in WebGL with great frameworks like Babylon.js. It lets us focus on very high level problems. In this article, we’ll share our approach to one of these fun challenges: a simple way to create realistic looking large scale terrain

Steering is hard coded for keyboards, someone should tell Microsoft about the existence of touch screens.

Is possible that ms opengl32.dll check and load external opengl? I mean in windows who checks for opengl?
NOTE. overwriting opengl32.dll with my driver igdogl32.dll GPU_Caps_Viewer_1.23.0.2 report: impossible find enter point glTexImage1D in library GLU32.dll

Here is the reference in registry for NVIDIA, should look similar for Intel
Code: [Select]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{magic number}\0000]

The entry points can be double-checked with GLinspector 0.1.0 (link broken atm)

Subroutine FOUR-D_NOISE disabled, causes implicit cast from "vec4" to "vec2" .

Water Landscape

totally screwed in GLSL Hacker for some reason

>>>download converted demo from here<<<

Judging from an internet search nobody seems to have a proper solution.
Unfortuantely i have no Intel GPU handy (since my laptop burnt out).

You can try TitaniumGL for OpenGL 1.4

Another idea: if you have a working Win7 installation export the driver's complete registry tree and import it into Win8 (after creating a system restore point).

Go Portugal! fixed, hope it makes at least one forum user happy.

Problem was the undefined surfacePosition (reminder to myself: this might help in future with other GLSLSandbox demos).

Code: [Select]
uniform vec3      iResolution;     // viewport resolution (in pixels)
uniform float     iGlobalTime;     // shader playback time (in seconds)
uniform vec4      iMouse;          // mouse pixel coords. xy: current (if MLB down), zw: click

#define time iGlobalTime                                             //uniform float time;
#define mouse iMouse                                                 //uniform vec2 mouse;
#define resolution iResolution                                       //uniform vec2 resolution;
vec2 surfacePosition = gl_FragCoord.xy / iResolution.xy * 1.4 - 0.7; //varying vec2 surfacePosition;

CRYENGINE 3.8.1 is here and it is packed with features that we know many of you have been extremely eager to get your hands on for quite some time. A culmination of all the work we've been doing since the CRYENGINE 3.7.0 release, this is one of our biggest releases yet.
You'll find the top level features highlighted below, including our brand new OpenGL renderer which we use on Linux and Android platforms. We've added support for Oculus VR which has been a joint effort between the CRYENGINE team and the VR team working on our newly announced Robinson: The Journey game, and you can expect much more to come in this area over the next few releases! We've got Voxel-based rendering updates including Volumetric Fog with support for point lights, shadows, probes and more. GameZero is our brand new, stripped down, lean & mean GameCode sample package which makes creating a game on CRYENGINE much cleaner and simpler without all of the additional Crysis-related game code which you may not need for your title. This and a ton of other great improvements are available for download right now!

Another day, another issue:

the demo "Ice Lake" uses a negative resolution "-iResolution", which causes a black screen in GLSL Hacker.
As a workaround i replaced it with "-1 * iResolution"

Download again for 150 demos now

I got "Venice" working now, just forgot to load the textures. And this demo rocks.

The AMD vs. NVIDIA saga continues: the demo "Illustrated equations" contains a line that's only illegal with AMD GPUs.
Actually the line is redundant.
Code: [Select]
// gl_FragCoord.y *= ratio;  // l-value required: assign "gl_FragCoord" (can't modify gl_FragCoord)
