You get the library which is designed to take apart.
And every effect comes with a demo, even if you need only one command to add the effect to an object, the demos show how much you can change individually

Wow great responses thanks !
As you know there is much setup work at the end of projects...
But i'm not confirming that I'm at the end ^^ because I want to add more effects...
And i don't wnat to confirm that I will add more effects either... but I want to
And I think Rick Vanner is the one to talk about that steam DLC thing and he is away for 2 weeks
I thought about a 2D Shader Pack too... there is much potential.
Are there obvious "must have shaders" for 2D games ?

It may change... so don't give me the impression that it is too cheap

I'm not really hot on shaders but heres a few I could do with

Lights & Lens Flair
Field of View (or Fog of War)
Normal Mapping
Water
Flags
Blur & Glow
Greyscale, Sepia, Thermal, Scanlines ETC
Pixelate (in, out)

that cartoon outline effect looks cool would be nice to do that to 2D sprites.

Sure...
But I'm not sure how I incorporate it into the system.
Would you like to use cel shading without the outline also ? I then create an extra cel shading part
Or can I just make the outline effect loading another pixel shader if desired.
[Edit]I think I just go with an extra parameter to enable cel shading for the outline effect[/Edit]

i think cel and outline is better off separate, since i notice some people like cel shade with border but i may like it with or w/o border.Thanks

I would absolutely buy this pack with any hesitation. If you are asking for ideas, I would really like to see the following shaders added:

Object Glow/Bloom Shader
Object Reflection Shader
Object/Scene Greyscale Shader
Object Heat Distortion Shader
Scene Underwater Shader (with Caustics)

Thanks and keep up the brilliant work!
I love my Altair 8800 Replica.

Impressive work! I long wanted to create a shooter where the player is extremely near-sighted!

By the way, there's one single effect I wonder if a shader could somehow pull off: That awesome psychedelic holograph metal effect!

@basicFanatic
Nice effect !

The not so serious answer:
I had those effects plenty by mistake, I should create a list of my greatest graphic errors.

The serious answer:
I guess the rainbow occurs when the reflection angle varies between the surface normal and the total reflection angle.
Much like a rim effect but with a color ramp.

I'm not sure if I got your joke right:
Are you talking about an first person shooter or is there something wrong with my DoF effect

@Alien Menace and PartTimeCoder
I added them to my list and thanks

No, I actually think a shooter with a near-sighted protagonist would be cool. No joke! I was thinking something horror-like.

Really like that wireframe shader. Could be used to create VR games that look like, you know, "VR"!

Today I added the cel/Toon shader successfully to the library.
I made it so you can add the Outline shader to every other effect
OK it has to make sense, so please don't try to add it to the water shader.
There are two other effects who have this special ability because they get rendered over the object at a later stage...
Its the Fur,Outline and XRay effect that you can combine with other effects.
Outline+Fur+XRay+"any other effect" at the same time is possible too.

Toon + Outline

I wonder what you are doing with a mapcap shader in a game ?
You don't have dynamic light in that shader so I guess you would either make a game without rotating objects also specular highlights or other reflections would look strange if you move the camera.
Or you use it for what it was intended for, a quick demonstration for sculpting, thats at least what I read.
It's still funny

A good palette shader needs a 3D texture and I try to make all shaders as compatible and stable as I can.
OpenGL ES 2.0 can't pass a 3D texture to the shader, but I can pass several slices of a 3D texture as a 2D texture.
For now I try to make everything cleaner and stable, but I want to let you know that I'm considering every suggestion of you guys.
So thanks for those very interesting shader suggestions.

Heres a thought I think maybe a shader could help me out, I have a 64x64 sprite, at certain times I need to change the alpha value of the bottom half (y=32to64) and leave the top half (y=0to32) fully opaque, like in RPG Maker when you are above (behind) a obstacle tile the bottom of the character gets faded to reveal the tile behind it, layering without layers, I'm currently using SetSpriteDepth&SetSpriteColorAlpha to sort of achieve what I want but shader approach would be much cleaner.

I'm making a 3D shader pack
Anyway did you try SetImageMask( iDstImage, iSrcImage, dst, src, x, y ) already ?
If you want to try it yourself first, here is my Masked Progressbar shader which should take you in the right direction.
If I find me having too much time i'll create one for you.
In 3D you could take my dissolve and SeeThrough shader

Hey matcap objects can be rotated, as seen in this beautiful gif:
https://gregpuzniak.wordpress.com/2016/02/29/matcap-mayhem-part-i/

But of course, it is a really cheap hack, which totally fakes the lightning. But it does enable you to create pretty much anything - chrome, cel shading, slimy surfaces, colored lighting, etc.

Oh of course
I thought about model space normals not world space normals.
Well that solves the strange look if you rotate an object but lights and reflections are still static.
You convinced me though, I like that hack very much.
I'll see if I can build it into the pack

This all looks great so far!! I do have a request for a shader too... if you could add a flat shading shader that would be awesome. Although you could use the new shader param for that probably better to do it the older slower sampling surrounding normals method so it can be used in web, mobile etc.

Basically I am interested in the flat shaded look instead of the smoothing that is default.

Flat shading is like vertex shading but with only one normal for all three vertices in the polygon.
If you activate vertex shading in AppGameKit, the normals get interpolated between vertices thus resulting in somewhat smooth lighting.
So you can get flat shading by manipulating you vertices(in a modeling programm) or writing some normal manipulation code or using a flat shaded normal texture to compensate for interpolated normals.

Flat shading is where the light/color of a face remains even exactly the same across the entire face instead of smoothly transitioning to the next face. It gives a very distinct clean look and is often used for ultra low poly.

Here is another page of info of someone trying to get it working.

And here is an example of an entire scene including water in flat shading...

I'll have to play around with trying to do it directly in the modeling somehow. I've never came across anyone achieving it that way... they either do it as a conversion / import process or use a shader. Actually if I can work directly with the normals in the model with AGK2 I can probably do it that way. I'll have to dig into it sometime because I know very little about that and how it is stored etc.

It's not released yet.
I hope it goes fast after Rick V comes back, till then I make everything better.
If I can't get it on steam I promise I will get something else immediately and release it.

I thought that too but there are many different opinions and methods.
I guess you just create the effect you like...matcap is nothing fixed like most shader... except of PBR
You can take Blendman's code and basicFanatic's matcap textures and create some nice effects.

After the 2D Visual Editor release, Rick can proceed with my AppShaderKit and create a Steam DLC finally.
He said the editor could be finished next week but you better ask him yourself
And I added a command list to the top post.

Lights & Lens Flair <- Lights are done & I saw lensflare somwhere and I didn't want to charge for something already made for agk... I rather rework the existing shader for free
Field of View (or Fog of War) <- thats interesting but only usable for third person games right ?... but volumetric fog is something you can use everywhere in a 3D game ...maybe some day
Normal Mapping <- done
Water <- so done
Flags <- like cloth ?
Blur & Glow <- (do you mean bloom) paul shiped a bloom shader with AppGameKit
Greyscale, Sepia, Thermal, Scanlines ETC <- I would put that into a 2D shader pack ^^
Pixelate (in, out) <- 2D too

Would love to see a blur/bloom outline. Like when an object is selected. Its highlighted with a glowy effect. Hopefully, that make sense.

I can't wait until this on steam!
