2D Texture Arrays So I'm trying to implement a 2D Texture Array to use to display the tiles in my 2D game. I've setup a VBO, loaded in a shader program and I have been able to get to the point where I can display coloured quads on the screen with no problems at...

3d Textures Would storing the textures for a 2d game be faster using a 3d texture rather than storing each tile(32x32 for example) as a individual image in the GPUs memory? I've tried using atlases to store my tiles but I ran into problems with texel bleeding...

Use of Singletons So what I'm trying to create is a system that allows you to load in new tools on the fly via external code files, I have a Interface that defines OnMouseUp, OnMouseDown, OnKeyPress, OnToolActivated, etc Now obviously you cant appl...

2D Camera Center So I have a Camera that I've setup using GLOrtho that has working zoom and panning but the problem I have is that it only zooms into the bottom left. What I really want is to be able to zoom to either the center or some sort of arbitary point. ...

2d Seams I have set my game to have a viewport based on the current Window Width and Height. I have also set Ortho to be set to one value that never changes. Basically this means that when I make the window smaller it stretches, and expands when...

2D Tile Rendering Order Here's a question about rendering I have, It could be solved with just running through the map 4 times but then I'd have to do that with each layer and it'd get slow if I decided to add more layers. I believe it could possibly be solved with an OpenG...

2D Texture Arrays I tried to use a texture atlas but I could never get it to have linear filtering without having seams. The 0.1 in coord.Z is just testing. I still get the same output if I set it to anything greater than one. My textures are in a atlas at...

3d Textures Is there any way to get 3D textures to have linear interpolation or anisotropic filtering without causing the blending of textures? I was able to quickly implement 3D texturing in my engine and I see what you mean. Last time I tried to use tex...

Use of Singletons Thanks for the input guys, I pretty much did what you said and it works quite well.

2D OpenGL Book? In the context of a 2d game would z-ordering allow you to render any layer at any point? So you could render your heroes first then render the terrain 2nd and still have the heroes clip underneath specific layers?

2d Seams At some points I was getting seams when scrolling and also weird texture issues when scaling. In the end I was able to render the scene at one resolution using a VBO, then render the VBO render texture to a single quad and all the issues went aw...

2d Seams Quote:Original post by szecs 1 pixel border (simplest to program, works very nicely) or nearest neighbor texture filter (if you know your tiles will always be the same 1:1 size) or use shaders For the first one: that doesn't mean you have...
