Jegas Game Classes Version 3.0 Library

Lilith asked me there was any signifigance to the Box Art...
Yeah - This Library is Seriously DARK - DarkGDK!

Overview
The Jegas Game Classes Library v3.0 is a collection of integrated C++ object oriented classes that can assist you in making 2D and 3D games. Its designed to work with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Free Edition (Or Enterprise with some changes to your project's compiler and linker settings), The Game Creators' DarkGDK Game Engine, The Game Creators' Dark Physics Product (optional), and the freely available Sparky's DLL (optional but recommended).

This library contains well over 33,000 lines of working code by last count!

Purchase or Get Free through TrialPay on [Jegas.com] via our [Pricing Page].

Tokamak Physics* - [http://www.tokamakphysics.com/] *NOTE: The Tokamak Physics Library is an Open Source Project available through the Tokamak web site. The JGC Library comes with this package - unaltered to assure compatibility.

Details
The Game Creators released the DarkGDK C++ library for freeware creations - at no cost and it's obtainable via the link above.
DarkGDK is NOT FREE for commercial applications. (e.g. To sell a game you make) there is a special license fee required that needs to be paid to The Game Creators (aka TGC) before you can sell your application.
Working examples are plentiful but documentation is sparse! Be advised! Intellisense however makes this library extremely easy to use! A forum has been created specifically for this product and all your questions will be answered there to serve as a form of documentation.
Additional utilities are in the development phase now specifically designed to work with and compliment this library and will be available freely to registered users.
Registered owners will recieve all updates to the library for the current version 3.X series free of charge.

Screen Shots

[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING Example: This example shows how the frutrum class in the JGC library works regarding poly count by excluding objects and/or hiding limbs that are not on the screen. This demo specifically tests dynamic objects (ones that move, limb culling is effective for static objects only) and you can view the poly count jump or drop appropriately. DarkPhysics is in use in this demo: used so the camera (YOU the user) can fly into the heli's and bump them around in this ZERO gravity test environment.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING Example: This screen shot is from the FRUSTRUM REGIONS demo, and the demo source code shows HOW to create REGIONS but it doesn't go into to WHY so much.

Why make a region? Why are they important? Frame Rates is the answer! Frustrum culling is the process of determining if an object (or object limb) is in the camera view or not, and showing the object/limb so its visible onscreen or hiding/excluding (best applicable method to gain frame rates) objects/limbs not on the screen so they are not being processed (or at least lighten the load) of the rendering the DarkGDK does each time the dbSync function is called. a problem arises when there are so many objects to check that it takes just as long or longer to check if they are in the frustrum or not than it would to just display them. This is how utilizing REGIONS can be advantageous. Simply put, Regions are an artificial container that you can place many objects in side of. If the Region is in the frustrum, then ALL the objects/limbs are made visible in one fast full swoop. If the region is not on the screen, then ALL the objects in it are hidden or excluded as appropriate in one fell swoop. This feature, if used properly, can definately improve framerates for a scene that otherwise wasn't using regions for things like... this group of trees.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING Example: This demo touches on something special about the JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING class and its Node system. The frustrum culling class does more than CULL, it handles LOD, Bill boarding, Regions, and has built in QUADTREE support.

The Game Creators latest newsletter, issue 76, discusses a billboarding technique for having alot of trees using one object consisting of many billboards. This would eliminate much of the OBJECT handling overhead in the rendering process. why do I bring this up? Because the JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING class is the ideal place to implement such a system. Once you get used to it, it's hard to go back - because once you Teach It how to handle each thing in your game: physics, lod models, ranges, billboarding, offsets, frustrum preferences.... it does all the render leg work for you from then on.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING - Like JGC_PHYSICS, Sparky's, and DarkPhysics can all display Collision wireframes or Primitives, the JGC_FRUSTRUMCULLING class can show primitives for debugging purposes also. In this SHOT, I was debugging a QUADTREE Level. There is a BIG box around these trees, each of these trees is culled individually as well. So, when the Camera has the BIG box on screen, only then does it bother to work the trees in the BOX. Now, if I had a TON of trees in the box - I might consider making them part of a REGION. A Region allows you to CULL multiple objects with one frustrum check: used wisely they can help your game frame rates.


[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_FUNSTUFF Example: This screen shot shows two things from the FUNSTUFF files - 3D Menu 01 which is like being in a gerbil's running wheel and has keyboard, mouse click and mouse wheel navigation, LINES Tool - which allows you to use F1 thru F8 keys to move those white lines about and read the coordinates (Useful for getting screen regions like those used by the 3D menu.. this is a development shot). Also you'll notice a JGC_VMESH landscape in the background too with a water shader applied to a simple plain (two triangle quad). The Text drawn on the menu's is done using the JGC_BITMAPFONT and JGC_BITMAPTEXT classes using the function call that writes text directly to a JGC_PIXELGRID. The Iron Infantry text uses instances of the same JGC_BITMAPFONT and JGC_BITMAPTEXT class but utilizes the function that writes text to the screen with sprites: this allows the Iron Infantry text to float in front of all the 3D action happening behind it.

If you aren't aware - Iron Infantry has been a pet project of mine (Jason) for over a year now that I have every intention of seeing through. If you want to see a pre-darkgdk executable of it in early development, [its here for free] - Yes, the JGC Library v3.X is now the corner stone of Iron Infantry! Eventually you'll be able to [go here] to see its progress, but now the project progress is only available [from here.] You'll definately notice some cross over.

JGC_GUI Example: This shot shows the JGC_GUI as well as some interior diagnostic information useful for debugging. You might recognize, if you have worked with DarkGDK or DarkBasic Sprites, that the ZOrder is actually a list of Sprite Priorities handling which window is in front of which. You might recognize the the tidy stacking of minimized windows along the bottom of the screen: this stacking is done for you as you'd probably expect.

JGC_GUI Example: A user named elspin on the The Game Creators forum asked in this thread: [http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=129759&b=5] , questions about the GUI and how some things weren't working for him. After he explained what it was he was looking for (Mind you this is a version 2 screen shot), I put together a demo program matching what he was looking for. He seemed pretty happy with the result.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_GUI Example: This screen shot shows off the gui but also shows off one of the cool features it has.

You see those rainbow looking boxes? Well... those are drawn only when the window is being painted in preparation to be displayed or updated. The message pump sends a message DURING the paint process so your window message handler function can be notified of the proper time to draw or copy custom media to the window before the controls are drawn. There is a message for after the controls are drawn also, but I'll leave that up to you to figure out something cool to use that for. In short though, you have alot of control over how windows look.

Someone once commented how they look Old Skool - I smiled knowing full well this GUI is designed so that you can totally make any kind of window you want... Circle shaped windows, transparent, disconnected hovering controls - whatever. I know that developers want a GUI they can get up and running quickly - especially when getting started with a project. The Eye Candy usually comes later, so I made it a point to make sure that this GUI's appearance is extremely pliable. So take it for a spin. Impress the community by making your own skin so it's not even recognizable! If you need help - just ask in the [Jegas forum].



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_GUI Example: This colorful shot was actually pretty easy to make! 3 windows (One with a background image loaded from a graphic file containing the Jegas Logo), and a spinning cube. The message handler routine for this application waits for the GotFocus message that is sent when a window gets focus from clicking on it, when the message is received the code textures the spining cube with the image the window's sprite is using. Pretty simple eh? Simple, but this is one of our favorite screen shots of the GUI!

JGC_GUI Example: Another GUI Shot with a spinning cube



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_GUI Example: This shot shows clearly some features of the JGC_GUI and of the JGC_BITMAPTEXT class.

First you can see that the GUI is reusing the JGC_BITMAPFONT and JGC_BITMAPTEXT classes. This kind of code reuse helps keep EXE file sizes down for sure.

Secondly, you can see two techniques for rendering bitmap fonts to the JGC_PIXELGRID. One technique renders bitmap fonts how they are in memory - exactly like the media. The other technique allows you to dicate the color to use for the background, and the color to use for the foreground: this technique overrides multi-color text and generates simple two color output - as seen with the Arial black. Now you might dig in and say, but the arial font is black in the media!. My response is to open a GUI demo with a textbox using the arial font, and change the foreground and background colors of the text box and give it a whirl. You'll see you have complete authority over the bitmap font rendering B^)

JGC_JMESH Example: This image demonstrates how the JGC_JMESH terrain is put together and demonstrates how you can individually texture each limb. In version 3.x there are new UV functions for both JGC_JMESH and the JGC_VMESH terrain classes that make texturing with authority easy!

JGC_JMESH Example: Shaderless Shading Experiment using the JGC_JMESH terrain class - Final Result.

I'm looking forward to revisiting this and getting things even smoother. I think with some modifications to the USGSMapPaint function, I should be able to devise an even higher texture splatting resolution. Note this technique is not TRUE texture splatting, and is actually a procedural mixing of textures that ultimately finish with tiles of textures you apply to your terrain. This technique does use more memory for texture data, however it frees up the GPU from constantly processing the same data redundantly. You have to consider your application, intended audience and intended graphics hardware to devise the best solution for your own games or applications.

JGC_PHYSICS integration wrapper for Tokamak Physics - This image is of the JGC Physics Primitives Demo and it shows the JGC's Tokamak Physics animated and Rigid Bodies in motion. When the JGC_DADDY class is instantiated and Tokamak Physics are enabled, the JGC_PHYSICS class is automatically created in the JGC namespace. From there you can access the integrated physics functionality.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_PHYSICS integration wrapper for Tokamak Physics - This image is of the JGC RagDoll Demo and shows the JGC's Tokamak Physics animated, rigid and joints in action. The JGC is already integrated with Tokamak: Initialization, Timer Based Updates, and Animated and Rigid Body. Joints however are not integrated, but as this demo shows, its possible to call the Tokamak Physics API directly and mix and match how you access it: JGC or Directly - Use the right tool for the job.

JGC_PHYSICS integration wrapper for Tokamak Physics - Another RagDoll Demo Screen Shot



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_PHYSICS Example: Here we have the vehicular fun demo which uses the integrated JGC physics primitives for the vehicle bodies, and directly calls the Tokamak API to get both Sensor (Form of raycast) functionality for where the wheels touch the ground and joint functionality for the Semi. when you try the demo, get into the semi, hitch up the trailer (H Key) then press the DELETE Key to lift the SEMI up. Especially using different observer views.

JGC_SKYDOME Example: This screen shot is of a skydome that is controlled by the JGC_SKYDOME class and it uses UV coordinates to scroll the clouds with timer based math for smoothness and the speed and direction is configurable.

jgc_usgs USGSMapPaint Results: This shot is of the island Kauai in Hawaii. You are looking down on a 3D model containing well over a 600,000 poly here. How the shot was created:

1: Aquiring the USGS GRIDFLOAT format of the satellite heightmap data of the island. The data set is rather large.

2: A shader was selected for the texture blending: the shader used here supports four textures and blends them based on an alpha map.

3: Select three textures to splat the island (not four because I wanted to keep one available for roads later).

4: Create a program that does only one function call: USGSMapPaint. This is the exe I run to create the alpha map for the shader.

5: Load the USGS height data into a game engine terrain system.

6: Load the textures: Sand, Grass, Rock and the Alpha Map created in step 5

7: Load Shader and apply to terrain

8: Take a screen shot because it looks neat!

This island is 20 miles across I believe, and this shot was taken after zooming really high up and looking down. I wonder how HIGH in feet or meters up you'd have to be in life to see that much of the island at once.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_USGS Example of the USGSMapPaint function: This shot is one of my favorites. Look for the Hawaii Kauai island top view shot as a reference but this image is the alpha map used by the shader that did the texture splatting for that island shot. This graphic alpha map was created using a function located in the jgc_usgs.h file. It works like many terrain editors' Paint restraints: altitude, edge blending distance, angle restrictions - except its not a constraint! It allows you to procedurally paint the alpha map to your liking, and then use other tools for handpainting your particulars. Too much techno babble? Let me sum it up: The final result, that island shot, looks AWESOME! You should have seen it up close walking around in it!



[Click here for Larger Image]
JGC_VMESH Example: This shot if of the UV Groovy Demo and shows both the poly arrangement for the JGC_VMESH as well as what the UV functions it offers allow you to do quite easily. One thing that is sometimes an annoyance is Z-Fighting. When you want to place a heli pad or a road on a terrain - you don't have to deal with zfighting if you can just texture the poly's in question directly. These routines make this sort of thing easier than trying to place a textured plain (or flattended cude) onto your terrain. Texture Splatting via shader is another way to handle this issue, but that's another technique altogether.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_VMESH Example: This shot is one of the first USGS height maps I loaded into the JGC_VMESH terrain. Since this shot was taken in Version 2.0, the code to work with these exceptionally accurate and readily available data sets has become even easier. Version 3.X houses more utility functions to help your terrain media creation workflow.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_VMESH Example: JGC_VMESH meets one of Green Gandalf's early terrain shaders. This shader works in a similiar fashion to the USGSMapPaint function found in the jgc_usgs file, except the shader naturally performs the algorythm in real time by leaning on the GPU. Don't let the distorted thumbnail throw ya, it's a pretty shot full size.



[Click Here for Larger Image]
JGC_VMESH Example: Here is another shot of a JGC_VMESH terrain using a shader for texture blending a terrain. The video card that was used fror this shot barely had the wherewithall to do it, but the shot still looks decent. I have found that on the older cards, utilizing the hardware pipeline often performs better than using shaders, while the newer cards eat shader code like its going out of style.

Phew this is the biggest post I EVER MADE!!!!

WOW....

I hope you enjoy the Jegas Game Classes as much as I did writing them!

Downloading? You mean Version 2.x, the [Open Source One]?

Yeah - that's sweet, you should consider v2.0 a free trial that you own.

the New Version 3.x is way better though... reasons cited above Not to mention nearly free via TrialPay!

Definitively outstanding

I think this should be considered as useful as any other official TGC extension. I don't have time to integrate it properly at this moment, but I look forward to use it in the future.

Great show of what can be done with DGDK, congratulations

You guys are too kind

So far, this version 3.0 is the easiest version to code, read, control, and integrate to existing applications yet!

I'm wondering who will be the first to reskin the v3.0 GUI!
