I'm the founder of Leadwerks Software. Leadwerks Game Engine is the easiest way to build 3D games and virtual reality experiences.
Today I am pleased to announce I have signed a contract to put our virtual reality expertise to work forÂ NASA. In the future I planÂ to use our new technology to provideÂ services for aerospace, defense,Â manufacturing, and serious games.
For someone starting out in the game industry with the intention of eventually working for a major studio, what is the best path to learning what you need to know? This article was written in an attempt to quantitatively answer that question.
I came across a very interesting presentation that talks about how to avoid "banding" artifacts in game graphics. The author uses dithering to add noise to an image and break up the visible lines your eye can detect.
I've just released (beta) support for the Oculus Rift in Leadwerks Game Engine. The implementation was much simpler than I expected, and isn't intrusive at all in our game structure.
Last week I travelled to Seattle for a few days to lay some groundwork for the future of Leadwerks Software. During the week I tried out Valve's VR hardware, visited a gassification plant, and survived a trifecta of astrological phenomenon.
Apple appears to now be offering refunds for unwanted in-app purchases.

I 'll probably calculate the fragment 's world position in the shader and use that as the random seed. That way the same position will maintain roughly the same noise level, and prevent the film grain appearance.

With HTML5, Flash, etc., it seems that they 're basically just looking for a way to make an easy and safe way to install a program, without viruses, ASK.com toolbars, clogging up the registry, going through a regulated app store, etc. They 're only making this a browser technology because ...

I think the idea is the dual haptic pads provide a greater fidelity of input than traditional thumbsticks. I imagine using them must be very different from a trackpad, since they are small, circular, and textured. I can 't really imagine what it would feel like, but I think Valve ...

Porting Direct3D code to OpenGL is pretty serious business. I never bought into Direct3D for this very reason, and it turned out to be a good decision.
