@blink That would be a great shader to have

I wonder if it could be done with a variation of a pixelate shader with every second one being totally black

Dont think i could translate a shader toy example as i dont have janbos expertise but i may be able to mod a pixelate shader
pixelate shader


which would look something like this which deosnt seem to do much, il have a think about it tho

I think if you started with his toon shader, and then added a dither pattern to each level of shade it might work.

I had this laying around:
Dithering.zip

Maybe that helps a bit

@janbo

To get back to you on this: https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/220091?page=8#msg2640480 :

I do *not* get any of those previously mentioned artefacts on my new system.
So it's definitely due to age of my old laptop's GPU, which barely supports shaders as they were too much a novelty back then, no common practice yet.
There was a slight possibility that my phone screen was too small to see, but this has now proven to me not the case.

Thought I give you a heads up. Keep up the good work.

@smerf It's not worth the effort to sell them individually. The pack will be on offer from time to time, so best to pick it up when you can afford to.

After purchasing the shaders, I see Tier 2 isn't supported. Looks like all the code is all here so I may try to convert some to Tier 2.

Hey, a bit late I know.
But I have a Sun shader which could be reused as lava.
I made it for someone who then said I could do whatever I want with it.
I thought I already posted it somewhere... somewhere for you to grab...not sure

Should I integrate it into the library for easy use

@janbo

a tiny change to navigating around the complete example showcase would be helpful
click on an item and it moves to that location does not work for me
but being able to click and watch to a new location would be better

Does anyone know if there is a mirror shader ?

that one I know people can use ;o)

In the Collection demo you should be able to rightclick and move the object with your camera.
This doesn't work for you ?

If you are working with 3D you set the camera view and render to an image
return camera view and place the image on the object you want.

chafaris thread here explains it quite well

@janbo

well it works in the sense
jump move to the new location but not move to location when I move the mouse from the original location

how to a change clipping so that it moves in the direction I want it to ?
so instead of left to right, I can it to move right to left

and change shield go down instead of up

every things work fine

The input is a Direction Vector of a slice cutting through every object that you have the cplipping effect applied to plus a distance value.
With all four parameters you should be able to reach every angle and position you want.
But I'm not sure how to calculate this the easy way...you probably want a position and and angle.. let me see

Hey just wanted to share my last project, from a month ago, as it could make a way into the shader pack... soon or later

Point Light Shadows


So AGK's comunity ventured more and more into 3D and thus the demand for Point Light shadows came up.
At that time I just got Directional Shadows working and we had no Cubemapping so I made it half a year ago.
I said it should be easy to combine Directional shadows and Cubemapping to get Point Light shadows, which actually was true and I would have made it possible earlier if I had more motivation or/and not been in Hospital in the mean time.
There is still something wrong with the linearization of the depthmap I guess, so you can see some artifacts on the front faces of objects.
I guess/hope AppGameKit Studio will get all those goododies too, lets see if they also manage to get them working for mobile devices, if not I definitely have to add my version to the shader pack
I love to tease you, have a nice day and happy coding.

Hey missed this one! Very nice. It's what has been asked for over and over and here we go: you did it!

Loooove to see that back in the Shader pack.

Btw hoping all's going well for you.

May i ask you, is the Shaderpack also usable with App Game Kit Studio (I own also App Game Kit Classic as well)

Thanks

@Vectrex71CH: Not out of the box right now.
Now in AGKS there is the #renderer "basic" directive which switches back to the old renderer which sadly is also not working without some changes in the current shader pack version.
The actual product are the Shader itself which, thanks to SPIR-V can be "converted" from GLSL to Vulkan. But as you get all the code im 100% sure it is possible to make the library shipping with it work for AGK'S with the basic renderer and with Vulkan.
I have a version running on AGKS using the basic renderer already. And I'm in the process to make it work for Vulkan aswell. I'm also planning to add Parralax mapping and Point light shadows to the pack for free ofcourse.
But I just had an Heart transplant, which I'm sure will punsh a really big hole in my time plan for doing all this.
Coding in AppGameKit is still a hobby for me and I love to see how many of the comunity use my shaderpack, but after I recovered I'll continue updating and supporting my shader pack as long as I can.

So the short answer is: No, not yet but it will.
You decide if you try it and maybe learn from the code or just fiddle with it in AppGameKit Classic, in the meantime...or not.

@All those who asked about my health: I have my problems which is normal hopefully, but it gets a bit better every day.
Love you

saw that post about point light shadows just now. Awesome.
Would really love to have that option.


But the most important thing right now is to get better and back on your feet.

Wow janbo! That's pretty big news. Congrats and I too wish you a quick and steady recovery so you can be in the best of health possible.
You've created many nice things that are of value to all of us and to top that off you're also a very nice guy. Besides the shader stuff,I remember when first starting with AppGameKit you generously pointed me in the right direction. Many thanks for that still.
You are in my thoughts and wish you all the best.

can the help files be provided so we can make an educated decision on whether or not to purchase?

with that:

can we use our own textures on the terrain shader?

are there parameters we can set for, say, the water shader?

for the wireframe shader: i'd like to be able to hide the texture and simply view the "wires", if possible ?

i suppose a demo would be ideal, otherwise.

the shader kit is on sale and i'm considering purchase.

thanks, otherwise

I added it to the FAQ for you.

Quote: "can we use our own textures on the terrain shader?

I like to think that I made them as customizable as possible.
In the Documentation see Page 10 (Shader Details) there you find all parameters for each effect.

Quote: "i'd like to be able to hide the texture and simply view the "wires", if possible ?"

Like This ?

I set it up with a 1*1 transparent pixel texture, Cullmode on 0 and transparency 1.

thank you for the prompt, inclusive response.

i'm trying to purchase but the TGC site is not cooperating ("value of basket" changing. ticket with screenshot sent to the powers that be).

i expect it will be resolved soon. until then, thanks again, and thanks for this great product

Could be a temporary glitch but also a browser issue(happens with lots of sites nowadays). You probably tried another browser already, but thought I'd mention it just in case you didn't. Hope you'll get through.

i tried paypal instead and it went fine. thanks.

running quickly through the pre-compiled demos: "water", "terrain" & "collection" (which, i assume, includes water and terrain) error out/won't run.


with that, i see no system requirements posted while my system could be considered dated for this. are there official "requirements"? (i should have asked before purchase, i know)

finally, the TGC purchase delivered what appears to be an outdated version? 20181015? ocean and specular are missing (unless they're inside other demos?) and the pdf is somewhat dated vs the one offered in the FAQ post.

again, was just a quick run-through. will re-visit when i can.

Are you using AppGameKit classic or studio?
if your using studio have you tried setting to the basic renderer?

I remember this error.
This was my answer.
In Templates/ShaderPack there is a "Shder Raw" folder with the raw shader files.
Copy them into your projects "shader" folder and use the SP_SetReadRawFiles(1) command then you can alter the shader code like you want.

Quote: "unless they're inside other demos?"

Yes you can see them in the collection demo

Also I kinda leaked some changes for the next version with the new documentation I uploaded mistakenly. I better upload the published version, sorry for that.

Hey Folks,

Just finished a new Update for the AppGameKit Shader Pack.
It's now compatible with AppGameKit Studio and Vulkan

And a Snow shader made it into the pack, If you don't have Snow in you country this December then you get some in AppGameKit atleast:

Thanks guys

@smerf: Wanna make a game together ?
I put all time into learning the render pipe, engine programming, shader and stuff so I had no time to practice modelling, drawing or other art related skills, so I look for free stuff on the webs and try to build on that.
For me, appearence comes second, I like to solve problems as clean and performant as possible, have a powerfull engine in my motorcycle rather than it being cool or pretty, you know.
It's a nice coincidence that my shader make a game look better
I'm sure one can present the shader pack better than me...making nice screenshots, modelling an AGK-Shaderball, tweaking the uniforms and so on...but it works and does exactly what it should.
At the end creating a whole game is so much more work I think(of course depending on the game)
