Getting better at texturing… little by little.

I put together a min-trailer for my game. I made this trailer consist of many short clips so that I could keep it short and action-packed, while focusing on showing the best lighting angles possible. No music yet unfortunately.

I also had a graphic designer redo my game’s HUD recently, and I finally implemented the advanced version of my PBR terrain shader into my game since I’ve confirmed it works properly in the editor.

this looks really nice :slight_smile:

about music/sounds you can try find something on Sonnis

Looking nice, though something about your walking animation falls into uncanny valley. Not sure what, but maybe the animation speed isn’t synced with the movement speed?

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback. :slightly_smiling_face:

And yes I think you’re right that the animation speed isn’t synced. I recently added a sprint mechanic, and I must have forgotten to fine-tune the animation speed while sprinting / walking.

I’ve also been procrastinating doing much with my current animations since I’m still using the old system on 3.2, and I’m planning on switching everything to the new anim system when I upgrade to 3.3 soon. Then I’m hoping I can improve and replace some of the main character’s animations as well since some of them are a bit too robotic.

Rewind Time!

hi guys, i made this demo for fun. I was inspired by @Brackeys youtube channel.
I translated the code from Unity to JME and used blender’s cell-fracture tool for the cube model. The physics gravity is managed by the BulletAppState. I will publish the source code as soon as possible. Out of curiosity let me know if you like it :grin:

Hi all :-),

i have created a GamePadView in android from CardView , ImageView (subclasses of view class , the android widget) Android Native Classes , so its about a parent layout called GamePadView holding the following:

1-> GameStickView , the stick moving the character/vehicle , its mainly optimized to be used in VehicleControls using conversion of (x,y) to pulse method , so you can feed this pulse into vehicleControl.accelerate() , steer() with applying tolerance for motion of the stick through abstract methods that acts as listeners towards the OnTouchEvent that’s an overridable event for subclasses of View class .

2-> ImageView that acts as the buttons A,B,X,Y with thier listeners(OnCLick,OnLongClick are supported)

then , this layout(GamePadView) is totally attached as a contentView on the JmeHarness Activity .

Features of the GamePadView right Now are :

  • Compatibility with JmeHarness Activity.
  • No need to use extra XML layout files.
  • Supports user’s own drawable XML files(backgroundDrawable) for GamePadView - GameStickView - GameStick -GamePadButtons , that will change the button shapes & colors.
  • Fully compatible with VehicleControl through converting the x & y of the GameStick to pulseX,pulseY.
  • Supports motion path pattern drawer.
  • Supports main GamePad Buttons A,B,X,Y on-demand (if you donot like to add one of them , its ok).
  • Different Built-in sizing configurations responsive to user screen(DisplayMetrics & defaultDisplayMetrics()).

Features that i am going to add :

  • built in drawable styles for different Games ideas(like Crystal Buttons , Material Buttons)
  • Fixing Some bugs concerning focus of the GamePadView
  • publishing the library as a gradle dependency

there are still many ideas yet to implement like extra buttons for game pause/resume or buttons to dismiss & reOpen GamePad ondemand
& may be some layout styles of how the buttons are actually arranged…

I am thinking of trying something like that with jme advanced vehicles in android context

Image (w/ transparent drawable rectangle shape) w/ different Built-in config gamePad sizes:

HALF_SCREEN:

Example of Responsive Layout on a Large Screen:

Using different drawable for gamePadView:

Example Code , use in simpleInitApp() normally:-

/*run the gamePad Attachments & listeners from the android activity UI thread */
        JmeHarness.jmeHarness.runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                /* create an instance of a class extending gameStickView to easily handle the listeners */
                GameStick gameStick = new GameStick(JmeHarness.jmeHarness,JmeGame.this);
                /* set the vehicle Control */
                gameStick.setVehicleControl(vehicle);
                /* create a gamePadView instance of cardView/FrameLayout to display gamePad Component */
                GamePadView gamePadView=new GamePadView( JmeHarness.jmeHarness,gameStick);
                /* Initialize GamePad Parts*/
                gamePadView.initializeGamePad(R.drawable.gamepad_domain,GamePadView.QUARTER_SCREEN)
                         .initializeGameStickHolder(R.drawable.moving_stick_domain)
                         .initializeGameStick(R.drawable.moving_stick,R.drawable.ic_baseline_gamepad_24,200);
                /*initialize the gameStick track */
                gamePadView.setMotionPathColor(Color.BLACK);
                gamePadView.setMotionPathStrokeWidth(10);
                gamePadView.setStickPathEnabled(true);
                /* initialize pad buttons & listeners A,B,X,Y */
                gamePadView.addControlButton("BUTTON A",GamePadView.GAMEPAD_BUTTON_A , R.drawable.moving_stick, R.drawable.ic_baseline_gamepad_24,new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View view) {
                        vehicle.accelerate(accelerationForce);
                    }
                },null);
                gamePadView.addControlButton("BUTTON B",GamePadView.GAMEPAD_BUTTON_B , R.drawable.moving_stick, R.drawable.ic_baseline_gamepad_24,new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View view) {
                        vehicle.brake(brakeForce);
                    }
                },null);
                gamePadView.addControlButton("BUTTON X",GamePadView.GAMEPAD_BUTTON_X , R.drawable.moving_stick, R.drawable.ic_baseline_gamepad_24,new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View view) {
                        vehicle.brake(brakeForce);
                    }
                },null);
                gamePadView.addControlButton("BUTTON Y",GamePadView.GAMEPAD_BUTTON_Y , R.drawable.moving_stick, R.drawable.ic_baseline_gamepad_24,new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View view) {
                        vehicle.brake(brakeForce);
                    }
                },null);

            }
        });

& another class for gameStick listeners that extends GameStickView :

package com.mygame;

    private float steeringValue = 0;
    private float accelerationValue = 0;

    public GameStick(JmeHarness appCompatActivity,SimpleApplication jmeContext) {
        super( appCompatActivity);
        this.jmeContext=jmeContext;
    }

    public void setVehicleControl(VehicleControl vehicleControl) {
        this.vehicleControl = vehicleControl;
    }

    @Override

                accelerationValue+=accelerationForce;
                vehicleControl.accelerate(accelerationValue);

            }
        });

    }

    @Override

                vehicleControl.brake(brakeForce);
            }
        });

    }

    @Override

        });

    }

    @Override

            }
        });

    }

i will show you more about CustomViews in android with jme soon…

as you know there’s still a great work to do , thanks for paying attention , also ideas are very welcomed :slight_smile:

@capdevon i am interested , i would like to know more about this one , if you can make a video to discuss it , this would be truly appreciated :smiley:, I have created a basic explosion Simulation before, using Linear Function y=mx+c with changing m for each x set , & applying that as gravity for geoms that have effects bouncing out from a same origin point , but that wasnot real explosion nor object fragmentation :joy: :joy:

sorry about the disrupting noise , vokoScreen isnot good at recording sounds

thats a cool thing :slight_smile: thanks for contributing. (when you will be sharing, it would be worth put it into new JME Store)

I like the community and this engine still gives me many hours of fun. I have followed the evolution of the software since version jme3.1.0, and since then the flame of creativity still burns. I feel compelled to give something back to thank all those who have contributed and still contribute today to improve this wonderful engine with their ideas. For this reason I share all the codes and try to create discussions with interesting examples to involve both young and experienced programmers. We all have something to learn from each other.

I hadn’t heard of half these games before. Many are not listed at https://github.com/jMonkeyEngine/jmonkeyengine/blob/master/README.md

Who created the video?

i think its just GameForest youtube group, so noone from internal community.

The guy from GameForest

All those games are listed on Indie DB I think

Finally , i have started to learn car modelling , after fighting for too long today , i made that LADA NITRO CAR :joy: :joy:


& you can find the JmEGamePad on git , there’s still a template design work :slight_smile:

I hope i can add SpeedoMeter & (Gravity + GyroScope) Sensor support :slight_smile:
