VGP3 OpenGL racecar simulator

Categories: General | Applications |

Nov 26, 2010

VGP3 is an advanced racecar simulator with unique physics, advanced AI and both online/offline racing modes. VGP3 is one of the very few commercial sims not Windows-centric, available for Windows and OS X. The 3D engine is based on OpenGL and supports 2.x features such as GLSL, VBOs, FBOs and shadow maps. VGP3 is fully moddable and customizable, file formats are documented, including GLSL code and 3D object/physics config files. Tools such as 3D object converters and track editors are available as well. A demo—freely downloaded without any registration—is available from the VGP3 website!

Leadwerks Offers Torque Developer Discount

Categories: Developers |

Nov 15, 2010

In response to last yesterday’s announcement by InstantAction, Leadwerks is offering a 50% discount for Torque developers who migrate to Leadwerks Engine. “It’s sad to see such a long-established brand come to an end,” said Josh Klint, CEO of Leadwerks. “They’ve always provided a unique pathway for indie game developers, and we have a long history of supporting Torque developers with our level editing tools. In addition to the Torque developer discount, we’re also in discussions with pureLIGHT Technologies to see how developers can migrate their license to pureLIGHT for Leadwerks. InstantAction may be gone, but indie game development must continue on.” To claim your discount, see the order form here.

New GL3W release with support for dynamic linking

Categories: Developers |

Nov 15, 2010

gl3w offers an easy way to get your hands on the functionality offered by OpenGL 3/4 core profile specification. It consists of a simple Python 2.6 script that downloads the Khronos supported gl3.h header and generates gl3w.h and gl3w.c from it. Those files can then be added and linked (statically or dynamically) into your project.

ClanLib 2.2.5 Released

Categories: Developers |

Nov 12, 2010

ClanLib is a cross platform C++ toolkit library based around OpenGL. It’s primary focus is on games (free or commerical thanks to a BSD style license). Image, Sprite and Font drawing are optimised to give high frame rates by drawing in batches, reducing OpenGL state changes. If OpenGL v2.0 or above is not available, the library seamlessly provides OpenGL v1.3 or a high performance software renderer. Supports multiple windows with a full GUI framework for use in 2D or 3D applications. This latest version contains new examples demonstrating the ease of creating custom shaders. In addition, a HDR test has been updated to demonstrate using OpenGL floating point textures.

Texture and buffer access performance with OpenGL

Categories: Developers | Processors |

Nov 03, 2010

Currently there are several ways to feed data to the GPU regardless of which API we use and type of application we develop. In the case of OpenGL we have uniform buffers, texture buffers, texture images, etc. The same is true for OpenCL and other compute APIs, which provide even more fine-grained memory management, taking advantage of the local data store (LDS) available on today’s hardware. This article presents memory access performance characteristics of AMD’s Evergreen-class GPUs, with a focus on what this all means from an OpenGL point of view. While most of the data is about the HD5870, the general principles and relative performance characteristics are valid for other GPUs.
