GeeXLab - english forum / Kapla blocks game prototype with PhysX
« Last post by JeGX on April 19, 2018, 04:54:53 PM »
I received this screenshot from a GeeXLab user that is developing a micro-game based on Kapla constructions blocks. This is currently a prototype and I don't know if a game based on this prototype will be released in the future. But it looks cool. All blocks are managed by the PhysX 3 engine.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan API specifications 1.1.73 released
« Last post by Stefan on April 16, 2018, 05:28:00 PM »
Change log for April 15, 2018 Vulkan 1.1.73 spec update:

  * Update release number to 73.

Github Issues:

  * Refine swapchain association with surface for slink:VkSwapchainKHR, with
    matching valid usage statements for slink:VkSwapchainCreateInfoKHR and
    discussion following the <<swapchain-wsi-image-create-info>> table
    (public issue 637).
  * Re-remove several valid usage statements from slink:VkImageCreateInfo
    that had previously been removed at the time that
    ename:VK_IMAGE_CREATE_EXTENDED_USAGE_BIT was introduced. These
    statements had incorrectly been restored due to an glitch while merging
    from the old `1.0` branch to the current `master` branch (public issue

Internal Issues:

  * Fix reference page generation and configure build to generate reference
    pages 1.1 with all extensions, rather than core only, as was the case
    for the 1.0 ref pages (internal issues 484, 1056, 1205).
  * Require that
    slink:VkMemoryDedicatedRequirements::pname:prefersDedicateAllocation is
    ename:VK_TRUE when
    slink:VkMemoryDedicatedRequirements::pname:requiresDedicateAllocation is
    ename:VK_TRUE (internal issue 1222).
  * Fix Ruby extension code so `diff_html` Makefile target works (internal
    issue 1230).
  * Update `genRelease` script to generate 1.1 + all extensions reference
    pages - but not the single-page HTML / PDF versions, which are even
    larger than the API spec (internal issue 1245).

Other Issues:

  * Add missing attributes to `vk.xml` for `VK_ANDROID_native_buffer`.
  * Specify that the slink:VkAttachmentDescription::pname:format member is
    the format of the image *view* that will be used for the attachment.
  * Use core sname:VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 in the `structextends` `vk.xml`
    attribute for sname:VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorIndexingFeaturesEXT and
    sname:VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorIndexingPropertiesEXT, rather than the
    KHR equivalent it was promoted from.
  * Fix the "`Fragment Input Attachment Interface`" glossary entry to match
    the specification body.
  * Clarify the interaction of sRGB images used as storage or texel buffers
    with <<textures-output-format-conversion, Texel Output Format
  * Moved three valid usage statements from
    slink:VkRenderPassMultiviewCreateInfo up to
    slink:VkRenderPassCreateInfo, and added a new valid usage statement for
  * Added valid usage statements for slink:VkBufferMemoryBarrier and
    slink:VkImageMemoryBarrier reflecting the global requirement that
    "`non-sparse resources must be bound to memory before being recorded to

New Extensions:

Is that certain ip based router. Because I am using comcast router and it's login url is Will that thing also work for my router ?
