Recently, we recieved a lot of pull requests in out Artemis Entity System repo. Most of them solved lots of our bugs but some also introduced new ones … every merge (or the week after one) was a big pain !!!
Its goal is to provide a clean API to abstract your game world organization into entities, components and systems.
Artemis has no dependencies (for PC, in Xbox and Windows Phone 7 we have one) and can be used with any game framework or library, 2D or 3D, and even multiplatform, if you use it with Mono/MonoTouch/Mono4Android.

Rendering a complex scenes is far from a straightforward task. In a world with Directx 11 multithreading, multicores CPUs, lots of multipass techniques, agressive culling, lots of GPU state transitions …. it is not simple to design a render that handles well all of those requirements. This article will show how to implement a simple strategy that tries to fulfill in a fashion way all of these needs. Leia o resto desse post »
Our New version of Artemis Entity System (1.2.0) is now avaliable on Nuget (Packet Manager for .Net). Installing Artemis is easier than ever.
Check it out: http://nuget.org/packages/Artemis
This new version contains some refactoring (namespaces, function and parameter names) and minor performance improve changes. No extra funcionality added.
Enjoy !!! Leia o resto desse post »
After quite a long time, we are releasing a new version of our C# Entity System called Artemis. It was born as a port of the original Java Artemis, but as the time is passing, they are diverging more and more. In this version we started to use more .Net Features (like Data Attributes and Events) to make everyones life a bit easier Leia o resto desse post »
Those libraries are extensively used for multi agent simulation (like crowd )
F1 2012 is one of the games i most enjoy playing. (with the steering wheel =P). Since the F1 2010, the thing that i always wanted was a telemetry system. I wanted to be able to change a single car parameter and see how it actually affects my lap.
Instead of waiting for the codemaster to provide this funcionality, i decided to implement one using the car data that F1 201x series always broadcasted via UDP sockets. Leia o resto desse post »
Recentely i worked in a car simulation program that aimed to gather information from a real device and replay it (with some customs overlays) in an Virtual 3D environment.
The biggest problem i got was finding properly references and learning resources. (surprisely, is hard to find good material about this subject =P).
In this post i will show some valuable tips that helped me in this quest !
Some years ago i implemented a full Software Render (learning purpose) using just regular C#.
Some days ago i was desperate trying to find a good Triangle rasterizer with perspective correction and then i remembered about the code i had written !

We know that C# is a garbage-collected language. This usually means that we (programmers) don’t need to explicitly free our own memory. When we talk about a reference to an object in .NET (and in most other garbage collected languages), we are talking about a “strong” reference. As long as that reference exists, the garbage collector won’t collect the object behind it.
A weak reference is a special type of reference where the garbage collector can still collect the underlying object, even though you still technically have a reference to it. Leia o resto desse post »
