Feature requests / sf::RectangleShape(sf::FloatRect) constructor
« on: April 14, 2015, 07:36:44 pm »
I think it will be useful to make a RectangleShape constructor with FloatRect argument ;)

position = sf::Vector2f(left, top);
size = sf::Vector2f(width, height);

Let me congrat all of you with Programmer's day!!!  ;D Have fun while coding! And let me wish you all good wishes!  :P

SFML projects / Image Palette Applier
« on: September 10, 2014, 12:15:15 am »
Good day!

For some time I was looking for the way to apply color palette to specific image (to make image use only colors, defined in palette).

GIMP can make indexed image, but there's 2 main problems:
  • Limitation of 256 colors
  • Alpha channel reset

Well, I decided to make own implementation (it's not finished yet, but workable).

Current features:
  • Able to choose what coordinates to use RGB or HSV
  • Support for GPL and TXT (exported from GIMP) palettes

For now it rewrites original file. Maybe I'll add an option later.
Btw, my tool much slower than GIMP, but it was 4 times slower before I've implemented cache  ;D


Well, screenshots, of course  :D
For all of the manipulations I used 'Cranes' palette from GIMP.

PS: maybe it's a bad example (palette not great to use on this image). So... The only way to find out it's usability is to check it out  ;)


GIMP indexing result:

RGB space:

HSV space:

Feature requests / sf::Rect extension
« on: August 28, 2014, 03:04:53 pm »
I think it will be useful functions to get position, size and (position + size) of the rectangle class instead of using everywhere in the code sf::Vector2(rect.left, rect.top) use simple rect.getPosition().

I don't want to make a pull request, 'cause some my things (like doxygen comments and formatting) may differ of what supposed to be. So here's a simple patch. And I don't know, how to name function returning (position + size) :D

SFML wiki / SFML dynamic color tile-based lighting
« on: August 27, 2014, 11:12:48 am »
Some time ago i've posted info about the project I'm working on (F.I.R.E.D. http://en.sfml-dev.org/forums/index.php?topic=16025.0)

And now I've decided to make a simple demo and write an article about my lighting system.

Sources: https://github.com/achpile/sfml-lighting
Article: https://github.com/SFML/SFML/wiki/Tutorial:-Dynamic-colorful-tile-based-lighting

So, if you'll find something wrong or untold in the article - feel free to post your requests ;)

PS: to compile demo you have to install sfgui.

SFML projects / F.I.R.E.D. v0.99.pre-alpha
« on: August 10, 2014, 08:28:44 pm »
Good day! Let me introduce a game I developed for 13-14 months. But it's still just an engine. It is a platformer with rpg elements (You can wear different armors, equip different weapon and different ammo). You gain XP after killing enemies, increasing your level and basic skills (Strength, Constitution, Dexterity and Intelligence) and your main characteristics depend on it (Shooting accuracy, speed, acceleration, jump, HP, aim range and XP bonus).

Official website: http://achpile.tk/
Github repo: https://github.com/achpile/fired
Screenshots : http://achpile.tk/projects/fired/screenshots
Contacts: http://achpile.tk/contacts.php


For now only Linux and Windows binaries are available (http://fired.tk/downloads/1/)

Main features:
  • Dynamic light
  • Tiled map with borders calculation
  • Weather system
  • 3 armor sets
  • Bone animation based on model type
  • 3 model types (humanoid, animal, spider)
  • 13 weapons
  • 5 weapon types (Automatic guns, Pistols, Shotguns, Explosive and Melee)
  • 14 creatures (5 critters, 3 bosses (with big loot) and 6 common enemies)
  • 2 demo game modes (common and 'I Hate Critters'). I don't want to talk about it. Just try it out  :)
  • ...and more stuff I can't remember  :D

  • A - move left
  • D - move right 
  • SPACE - jump
  • S - jumpdown 
  • LEFT MOUSE - shot 
  • Q - switch weapon
  • E - interact 
  • C - character window 
  • I - inventory window 
  • ESC - main menu

The game have no conception yet. Only in my mind. And I want to talk about it. As I told, for now it's a simple 'game engine'. So, it would be great to hear your suggestions for project's future.

For me it is:
2 basic locations (Home and City). At home you can store your stuff and there will live some private NPC (appears after some conditions). In City there will be public location for all players on the server. They can create parties to go to dungeons or quest locations or go there alone, interact with common NPC (traders, quest, etc.). When party/player will go to dungeon/quest location the new map will be randomly generated. Also there will be several biomes, contains own style and world generators. And maybe there will be arenas, or something similar (PvP) game modes.

If you have own suggestion, found a bug, or there is something else you wanna tell me - post it here, or in forums at http://fired.tk/forum/

Thanks for attention!  ;)

Graphics / Scale sprites with repeating instead of stretching
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:30:16 am »
Hi. I'm new in SFML, but have experience in OpenGL.
Well... Is there a way to fill background with some sprite in SFML v1.6?

For example sprite size is 512x512, screen size is 1024x768.

If I resize it to screen size, the texture coordinates will still be the (0, 0) - (1, 1) and the sprite streches.
How can I resize sprite with changing texture coordinates to (0, 0) - (2, 1.5) to fill all the background without "for" statements etc.?

I've read about sf::RenderTexture and method setRepeated(bool), but it is in SFML v2.0
