That's an issue I take with all the existing material out there (AFAIK), including the stuff I wrote a couple years ago. They just leave things at "yeah use a structure of arrays", and don't talk about ways to then minimize memory usage and improve tightness, because having lots of sparse memory isn't good for the cache.

I've posted about this before, but it seems to me like the solution is to break your entities up into partitions. Each partition would have rules about components.
>every entity must have this component
>no entity may have this component
>these components must always appear together
Then, based on these rules, you can store component types in different ways, either straight forwardly in an array or using a single level of indirection.

The memory itself is contiguous, but the components that have to be processed may be sparse. Doesn't really help the cache to work with arrays if you still have to skip over things all the time. The partitions are to reduce the amount of skipping, and as a nice side effect the memory usage (even though it's not really a problem).

Yeah it looks awful. I think it's because the scale is set so stupid zoomed in because the tileset I'm using is 8x8 that the slowdown as it gets closer to the player target is way more apparent. Tried to zoom it out a little more to see if it looks better but still not a fan.

That's not what happens.

First, you have something actually handling the collision detection and probably the physics at the same time, typically middleware. It doesn't care about entities, it just cares about shapes and rigid bodies and stuff. But there may be some extra behaviour based on the results of this. For example, something breaking apart if a force threshold is surpassed. To accomplish that, there would be a system (function) that looks at the component that holds the physics measurements as well as the component that shows how the entity breaks, and destroys the entity if the force is too high.

This isn't too different from how it would be in a more traditional architecture, where you'd have a collision handling method that can be overriden by entities or components. But it has more flexibility, as the behaviour can depend on more than just whichever data comes with the collision "event" and each individual component. That's where the traditional ways really fall flat -- they don't handle component interaction well, besides through some predefined channels with elevated privileges (like collision events).
>>
>>128184553
>>128186032
The big thing to realize is that components are not responsible for their own behaviour with ECS. They are just data (structs), and the systems (functions) are what actually provide behaviour.

Encapsulation is a means to an end, not an end in itself. It only creates problems if you try to apply it to ECS.

I'm sorry, it just sounds like a shitton if shitty checks and edge cases, which is the complete opposite of extensible or flexible. That each instance is just "data" is of no importance, the important part is that everybody's behaviour is inevitably tightly coupled to a main method (which then calls the particular functions), which, ironically, is really fine if your game logic is simple, but quickly gets overbearing as you start adding more and more particular behaviour.

I'm just not convinced on your words. Maybe it's something particular to your engine.

I looked into it before, I don't remember it finding a name for it but instead of making the floor a flat plane, you should make the ground into a cylindrical shape and use the same camera at a 30/45 degree angle.
players won't notice the curvature backwards because it will be behind outside of their view, but they will be able to see the ground curving out in the distance
Then, to keep the game logic in 2d you'll need to project 2d x/y coordinates onto the curve. I don't remember the maths for this part, sorry

1. Anything that can be done in jQuery or Knockout can be done in vanilla javascript.
2. Linq and sql are not necessary. Also it depends on the database you use.
3. "Database coding" is redundant, because it's understood once you know other things.
>>
>>128186961
That sounds like gross extrapolation to me.

>I'm sorry, it just sounds like a shitton if shitty checks and edge cases, which is the complete opposite of extensible or flexible.
Where? The checks I'm assuming you're thinking about are only done to say "should this system operate on this entity ID?" and the entire point is that there are no edge cases.

>the important part is that everybody's behaviour is inevitably tightly coupled to a main method (which then calls the particular functions)
There's nothing stopping you from making a sequence of systems that are run through in a loop and that can even be changed at run time.
>>
>>128186918
I am not confident in my terms.

In my implementation all data is handled the same and at once. Striving to at no point do you need to know that you are dealing with particular data types as only the component subsystem itself cares about what the internal representation of the data is. I guess the way I have it designed is a component doesn't provide data, it provides functionality.

There are cases where this encapsulation is broken and data needs to be shared, but I do this through mediator subsystems too to try and minimise how much internal representation leaks.

It is working well so far, but maybe I have not come into the most complicated cases.

Maybe I am still applying an OOP mindset to it. I don't like the idea of systems coming in and touching data as they like so I have the component control access.

>Where? The checks I'm assuming you're thinking about are only done to say "should this system operate on this entity ID?" and the entire point is that there are no edge cases.

The checks must be on a case by case basis. Think of it simply, you have two kinds of enemies with two different tresholds, and two different death animations, and your method checks, "oh it's this type of enemy? it then has this treshold. is it dead? then do this kind of animation" Obviously it's fine and dandy if you have two enemies. But 10? 15? What about other types of instances, do they get checks too? How many ifs do you need? How nested are they going to be? Do you really think this is fine for a very large scale project?

>sequence of systems
It's the same thing though? You're not getting rid of those ifs, except with inheritance. Or maybe you're a real smartypants and like using metaprogramming techniques like duck typing, or reflection or lisp homoiconicity, I doubt that though.

Yeah, it can be hard to break free from the OOP Kool-aid that is given out so widely. Encapsulation can be good, obviously, but it serves a specific purpose (not letting users meddle and put an object in an invalid state) that doesn't really apply to ECS.

>>128188026
>Think of it simply, you have two kinds of enemies with two different tresholds, and two different death animations, and your method checks, "oh it's this type of enemy? it then has this treshold. is it dead? then do this kind of animation"
These things are data-driven. The breakage threshold is a value in a component. A particular death animation is indicated by a value in a component. There's no code that says "if this type of entity, do this", because in an ECS there are no entity types. An entity is the sum of its components. You don't seem to understand what you're criticizing here.

But 10? 15?

I've only been trying to do ECS for a few weeks now so I'm probably way off, but the way I understand it is that you don't really set your systems up to look for "types" of enemies. Your enemy entities are just collections of component data. That component data should contain all the necessary information about what death animation is to be played, etc. Then your system just does:

AnimationSystem.RunAnimation()

And runs the animation for whatever your component data contains for the animation for entities that have the requisite component collections.

For instance in my project for animations I have an animation component that has an enum State (dying, hitting, dodging, standing), and an array of keyframe rectangles for each state. It also has a double frame per second. Then my animation system simply looks at the state data of the animation component, and runs the correct keyframe array for whatever spritesheet is presented by the Display component's data.

In that way I can have dozens of different enemy "types" and animations, but the system would only be as simple as one call with generic logic.

>The breakage threshold is a value in a component. A particular death animation is indicated by a value in a component

I get it, so you just have generic objects with a million variables to cover any kind of instance they can possibly be? But you're still not getting rid of those ifs tho? Because I very much doubt you can really have a "particular death animation" all sorted out with just a single value. Which means, either your engine is doing the match between the value and the animation for you (i.e. those fucking if/else blocks) and you're confused, or you're doing those if/else blocks yourself but not admitting it? If it's the former, stay out of the conversation? The other guy is seemingly not using your particular engine, so you're just confusing him further.

So, I'm trying to list the possible spell variants, and so far I've got:

The damage-dealing and damage-healing ones
The condition ones : divided in the things they affect (hp, stats, speed), or just a tag for a treatment or behavior : they have a duration
The condition-lifting ones : some buffs might also work as a lift for debuffs and vice-versa
The Shaker ones: creating things (that might have effects associated) and changing terrain : the change might have a duration associated
The summoning ones: summoning monsters of the most various types, can be divided in many different spells | summon familiar, summon elemental, etc | Master Type 1
The enchanting ones: conditions into items, some permanent. Enchant arrows, enchant bows, enchant melee weapon : associating an effect to them (usually damage or condition)
Creating non-terrain items, like food and ammunition, basic conjuring
Enchanting terrain ? probably will never use

Is there any other possibilities?
>>
>>128189161
So it IS an engine thing, either it does inheretance on the background or it matches the value to a particular behaviour, in any case, it's neatly encapsulated for you.
Conclusion: If you're doing a more bearbones approach, you SHOULD encapsulate.
>>
>>128189242
>I get it, so you just have generic objects with a million variables to cover any kind of instance they can possibly be?
No, a given entity can pick and choose which components it has -- that's the whole point.

>Because I very much doubt you can really have a "particular death animation" all sorted out with just a single value.
Why not? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

Again, why are you getting this involved in a topic you clearly are not at all familiar with? Both specifically ECS, and game programming in general?

Guy from last thread here,

Finally got around to making the stage "endless." Now to make a generation algorithm.

I made variable A keep track of the player's x position and a variable B to keep control of the spawning.

Everytime A is bigger than B there's a chance to spawn a block (and other things) and then B is increased by 16. I thought this would translate in things only appearing in multiples of 16, like a grid. But it seems sometimes shit just plain spawns on top of each other.

What do? Webm related.

I'm not sure what you mean friend. I was just responding to the idea that a system has to have many conditional statements to check for different types of enemies and decide what to do for each type, which goes against all of my understanding of how ECS works. (Which is admittedly limited.)

It is clear that you are at the point where you are either going to sink or swim. It entirely depends on if you do reference studies or not.

You take an image and you reproduce it is accurately as possible. This is, reproduce a photograph, not someone elses art/cartoons. Work it until you 'feel' it is accurate or until you have been working on it too long. Then do the next and so on forever.

I'm not using an engine personally, just using Monogame. But how I understand it is you don't actually define particular behaviors with ECS -- you define one behavior, and then let the data of the components drive the outcome as that behavior (the system) works on it.

How the animation actually gets played isn't the component's business, you're right. For the case of the death animation, the component just has a reference to a particular animation (for example, though a file name).

Yes, I understand that much. But not every behaviour is simply given by a bunch of variables.
Obviously, if you have a simple collision system that only requests a threshold to perform calculations, then a struct that holds a threshold is going to be enough.
But anything more particular, especially animation, is going to be kind of shit, unless you're implementing such behaviour on neat little capsules.

Well I'm not going to try and claim that there's some magic one size fits all approach to game programming, so it's more than possible that some intentions are better served using something other than ECS, but I think that most, if not all, behavioral needs of entities can be broken down into "just a bunch of variables". I'm not sure why animation would be different. At its core, at least for 2D, it's just image and timing data.

Because your player's own movement isn't locked to a 16 pixel grid and since your spawn is dependent on that, it will not lock to a 16 pixel grid.
>>
>>128191784
>behavioral needs of entities can be broken down into "just a bunch of variables"

Pragmatically, no, that's not a sensible assumption.
Depends on the langauge. You could really have lists that represented game constructs with the code embedded inside, and have those evaluated at run-time, but that's only on LISP-like languages. Yeah, that approach would work there just fine, in fact, it'd be a neato exercise for anyone curious about it.
>>
>>128191743
>otherwise data and code are going to be represented in really different ways
In every language I've used so far a function call is just a pointer or object which you can pass around freely, and argument lists end up just being arrays.
Sure, it may be a pain to use in some languages to the point of going against the entire paradigm.

>>128191080
In your OOP based approach, each object wouldn't have code for running its particular animation. That would be abstracted away into something that you feed the current time into and get the current frame, for example, and the object just tells it to switch between different animations.

Why would it be done any differently with ECS? You could just have a single value somewhere that says which animation the entity is currently on (which can be changed by other systems based on what the entity is doing), and when it's rendered, you look up which frame to use based on the time.

>>128192160
my 2d animation so far
Anim = stateful, has a time_left (number) and an on_complete (event, two strings + args) + frame data.
LoopAnim = stateless, just quad (4 nums) + timing (number) per frame. The actual clock for these is global. Might add an offset later but for now idgaf
this isn't counting tweening which is handled by a library/particles which are handled by the engine
My game doesn't store opaque datatypes or functions as state. Any time I need to change behavior based on state I use events/class references(literally just the class name, string) instead.
This is in a simple dynamic language, without metaprogramming, and it works just fine.
>>
>>128192359
>In every language I've used so far a function call is just a pointer or object which you can pass around freely
Try and modify the behaviour of said object at run-time, man.
It's true, when it's bare metal it all looks the same, but we're talking high-level languages here.
>>
>>128192160
I didn't mean the behavior itself. Just the needs. What I was trying to say is that the systems are designed generically and since what really drives the behavior is the data that generic behavior acts on, it shouldn't matter if it's simple, sparse data like collision information, or if it's more complex and numerous data like you'd need for animation. It's possible for the systems in an ECS to act on data supplied by the components without regard for special circumstances or checking for "types" of entities. That's all I'm saying -- is that I don't think (at least I've run into anyway) there's a case where an animation is going to be so complex that the data couldn't just be fed into the same generic animation system as all other entities with animation data.

>>128193379
Well I think one major thing is 3D takes a bit longer to get used to than 2D. And if a programmer can barely make passable 2D art they most likely wont make anything good in 3D either. This is why so many 3D games have a minimum of two members, a 3D artist and a programmer.

Level design is also harder in 3D than it is in 2D. Although it's not too much harder if you're keeping the game logic in 2D.

There's also a huge number of 2D games simply because there's always a huge number of beginners, and beginners almost always start with 2D, and just keep 2D going for a while.

But if you're already good at 3D and you're already comfortable with programming then you should be fine.

I'm going to be spending a lot of time on graphics. I've always been a perfectionist when it comes to graphic design. I'm more worried about coding, shaders, animations and rigging, etc that come along with 3D games. I'm still a complete beginner to game engines and coding, so I can't figure out if making the game I want to make is even a realistic en-devour or not, but it's not looking promising with the lack of actual 3D releases by one man dev teams. One thing is for sure, I'll be finding someone to help with the music, because I want someone who has good music sense and it isn't me. Everything else, I want to handle personally.

>>128194183
I've been making 2D art for a very long time, and while I'm not the best by any means, I am able to do simple things like character prototyping, character portraits and textures for all kinds of landscapes and such. I'm still pretty new to 3D modeling, but I have a basic grasp of how everything works at least with blender. I can model most basic things at this point, and I know the UI, which commands do what, mods, and a few other things pretty well.

The game is going to be 3D, but in a top down style with everything zoomed out a bit, so having super high quality texture work isn't a big deal. I'll want some cool lighting and shadows and such, but that's completely outside of my knowledge at this point.

Programming I am not exactly comfortable with. I'm decently competent at learning, even if a little slowly at times, but I think I'll be able to get a grasp on it eventually. I'm just worried it will set the bar too high by starting coding on a 3D game instead of 2D or 2.5D.

It's a long process to be honest. I have had multiple stages where I thought my art was good, only to realize later that it was really pretty bad. I'm finally at a point where I can make something that is good by most standards with a little time and effort, but the process was long and took a few years of work. Some of that time was spent as a neet, doing nothing but drawing and reading books and guides. A few months or so. It helps if you have a passion to do it. If you don't have the passion or don't want to put in the time, you should try for a simple style as there are plenty that look very appealing with little work. When I say simple, I mean simple though. The advice I'd give you is spend a lot of time with people who are decent at the type of art you want to do. Learn perspective and how it works. Learn values and proportions. Do a lot of work, don't stick to a single image for too long starting out. Don't get overly attached to any starter images you make, move on. Don't be afraid to fail. Good luck.

place_free() doesn't check a single pixel area. It moves the calling object by the x and y arguments, checks the object for collisions, then moves the calling object back to its original position.

Is the point of those two nested loops to lock the character to the collision block so that there isn't a gap? If so, you might want to do y += sign(1) rather than y += sign(vsp).
>>
>>128201610
Depending on your minimum collision size and maximum speed you could overshoot if you do that (ex: your speed is 10m/s but you have 1m wide blocks).
>>
>>128201283
>>128202039
Actually, now that I think about it, there are a couple reasons why this code doesn't make sense. The while() loop directly contradicts the if() loop of which it is nested inside. There's no way the code inside the while() loop could possibly run. Unless I'm misunderstanding the sign() function.

I did take it from spalding's videos. It's not that I didn't look for alternatives, but that seemed like the shortest approach at the time.

I would be lying if I said I knew exactly about the nesting, but its vsp rather than 1 to account for the speed build-up of gravity. I don't think it has to do with the rectangle itself.

I wouldn't mind just still having a rectangle while ignoring the arms for collisions. But I can't just go and add an integer to the x position on the meeting place since the same line has to be used for both directions.

attached gif is just what I did while awaiting responses, crouching and shooting, running and shooting.

sign() just returns a one or a zero and keeps whether it's positive or negative.

sign(0) = 0

i think you can add a jumping sprite and also a next to wall sprite which will have smaller collision boxes. you don't want an arm just overlapping the wall next to it.

as a temp thing just copy the standing sprite but change the collision mask on them
>>
>>128202581
>But I can't just go and add an integer to the x position on the meeting place since the same line has to be used for both directions.
Don't you have a -1,0,1 ranged variable somewhere in there for handling direction? You multiply it by that.

Yes, because you are checking in intervals the same size or smaller than your smallest possible colliders (in this case 1 pixel). If you can say "I am never going to use colliders smaller than 16 pixels" then you can step up to 16 pixels per iteration. Doing it pixel by pixel is somewhat handier because you don't have to calculate the exact intersection point afterwards. The drawback of this method is it is more performance intensive, particularly if you are moving something very large distances a single frame (1000 pixels becomes 1000 iterations!). Most of the time this will be fine though unless you have tons of things moving each frame.

Now that I'm going back to my collision code I've actually got a more long winded mess of a workaround that includes acceleration and booleans, which is probably why I never ran into the limitations of my technique.

I think I was thinking that having a while loop would make the sprite appear to teleport, but thinking about it I'm wrong, aren't I? Because this situation only comes up when the gap is smaller than the regular speed anyway.

No the sprite should only draw after the whole process is done and it should only end up making a difference in situations where they would have jumped past the obstacle they will instead butt up against it.

>acceleration
PROTIP: most tutorials out there for acceleration in game dev is wrong. To do it correctly you take the instantaneous velocity of this frame and the last frame, average them, and use that average. This only works with linear acceleration, though. After linear it gets really complicated so I would just recommend using a physics library at that point.

realistically speaking, how hard is it to make a job out of gamedev? if someone makes a game, it gets greenlit, and it sells 100 copies on steam for 10 bucks each, how much of that $1,000 do you actually ever get? i think steam takes 30%, then you have to pay the engine fee if you use unity or UE and make a certain amount, right? then taxes? i see a lot of games on steam that have very involved mechanics and unique art styles with very positive reviews that barely sold any copies. is the dream of being an indie dev who makes games as their actual job a reality, or will it most likely always be a hobby even if you make something awesome?

In the game, I think what you're actually going to be *doing*, is finding a number of prism shards scattered through the world, and returning them to the mother prism. Returning them all and making the mother prism complete is how you win.

But, while you're holding each shard, it floats around you and follows you, making you more powerful. When an enemy hits you, it makes you drop the shard. Certain kinds of enemies can pick them up themselves, making them more powerful. In fact, most of the shards will start off in the hands of enemies. When you die, the shard lies on the ground where you dropped it.

What are your thoughts on this?

Mobile online crusader kings where every player is on the same map

When you start playing, you're given a random role depending on what's available: If you were the first player, you'll become the king, other titles will be handed out, etc. But most people will start off as ordinary citizens.

As with CK2, you have to continue your legacy and aim to become king. The gameplay would be fairly similar, except now you will most likely start far lower on the food chain. While the king manages the kingdom and the counts and dukes manage their titles, player citizens produce resources for the kingdom and make up the armies being sent to fight. It would take far too long to explain how you'd go from citizen to king, it's just all about making the right connections and marrying into the right families.

If you die, you start over with a new life.

Unlikely that it'd work real-time, you'd probably have limited actions per day (not just to jew the player by getting them to pay for extra actions, but because I can't think of how else it'd work).

You'd need a lot of players for this, but you can probably make some smart AI that gets replaced over time as more players join.

Programmers could do a damn lot more art if they tried to use a technical illustration approach and technique, but they go to /ic/ or some other lair of concept artist wannabes and get put on the road to full blown fine art faggotry instead.

It's a grand conspiracy to ensure that established artists aren't displaced once everyone else figures out that artists are just as obsolete as musicguys.
>>
>>128207540
You want to add a layer of challenge and difficulty to the game that will exclusively affect bad players. Think about this for a minute and maybe go back to the drawing board.

I'll throw out an idea, though, instead if you could voluntarily throw your crystals shards at enemies to send them into some kind of persistent buffed out frenzy state, but you get a much bigger reward for killing them in this state in addition to having your shard refunded? This could make for some really cool displays of skill where you're sharding a bunch of enemies and watching them rush at you, potentially in a state where they can kill you quickly, only to handily dispatch them and be showered in delicious sparkles.

If you're trying to take notes from the game it looks like you're inspired by, then you ought to know that those kinds of players love it when you give them options to organically adjust the difficulty for themselves.

So when you die to a monster(meaning that the monster is already pretty hard, or it wouldn't kill you) you grow weaker and the monster can easily kill you again, and the monster grow stronger so it can trivially kill you again.
