New Resource: LightTrail

Hey. So, LightTrail is a trail system I made because I needed the functionality of a trail / ribbon, but I couldn't find anything for Blender 2.6. It's not exceptionally well made, but I'm happy with it.

2D in the BGE Part 2.5 - Code Refactoring

Hey. So, here's a little video in the "2D in the BGE" tutorial series that I've been making. This one just basically talks about refactoring your code to be easier to read and work with. Check it out after the break below.

BlendSling v0.21b - Blender 2.66a runtime and Added OS X Build

Hey. So, here's another version of my BlendSling launcher. This one uses Blender 2.66a's BlenderPlayer. I've also uploaded an OS X version. As a side-note, the Linux versions were created on Windows, so they may or may not work. Feel free to give 'em a tug and see if they fall apart.

SolarLune-Game - Google Code Game Development Module Page

Hey. So, I thought it would be a good idea to make a central Google Code page for my BGE Python modules. That way, it's easy to make sure that you have the most up-to-date scripts and functions.  You can use an SVN tool like TortoiseSVN to download the latest versions and keep up to date. It's pretty slick, I think.

BlendSling v0.2 - Launcher for BGE Games

Hey. So, I renamed the launcher to BlendSling, as there had already been a 'BGLauncher' that launches BGE games before. This version adds a little safety to the launcher by adding in some (very, very, poor, but functioning) encryption to BlendSling from my BlendCrypt project before. What's more, thanks to a suggestion by Moguri from the BlenderArtists forums a few months ago (I was really slow to work on it for some reason), it doesn't decode the files to disk (like BlendCrypt did), but rather decodes them into memory, loading their scenes (and so everything in them) into the game via LibLoad.

bgLauncher on Linux

Hey. So, I ported (or at least tried to port) the bgLauncher to Linux. I don't have a 32-bit version of Linux, so I couldn't test that version, but the 64-bit version seemed to run alright, though you can't spawn a terminal from it, so the "Keep Terminal Open" option is useless. Also, it would appear that you can't change the full-screen resolution - it will always be at desktop resolution (though that might be something to do with Linux or my graphics card and driver moreso than the BGE). Both versions of the launcher are present in the download. It requires 7-Zip to unzip. It can be found on the bgLauncher post here. Have fun!

bgLauncher - Launcher for BGE Games

Hey. So, I made a launcher for BGE games, something like Unity's launcher. It basically is a standalone executable that will run a blend file named or game.blend that's in the same directory as the launcher, and with the command-line arguments that you specify (no mipmaps, specific resolution, fullscreen, etc).

Simple Linear Velocity Motion Template V2.0

Hey. So, I made a template for simple movement with linear velocity awhile ago, and while it was alright, I made a new version that's a bit more refined. For one thing, it ties in better with the Bullet physics engine, and so won't operate separately from it.

For example, I'm pretty sure my old template wouldn't work well with bumping into objects, as it kept it speed separate from Bullet's speed values. The new version adds and subtracts its speed from the object's built-in linear velocity values, so if you go from bumping into an object to suddenly moving forward, you won't launch forward extremely fast.

Anyway, check it out here.

Pixel Art Tutorial 6 - Hue Shifting and Saturation Shading

Hello. So, it's been awhile, unfortunately. Today I made and uploaded a pixel art tutorial video - this one deals with shading objects with more saturation the darker they get, and shifting the hue of colors as the shading gets darker. You can find the video after the break.

Voxels in the BGE Demo

Hey. So instead of working on my games or tutorials, I messed around in the game engine, heh. This time, the subject that I was interested in was voxels. I tried to use them before, with pretty poor results, as I couldn't get a large number of voxels to render in the BGE. Well, I then had an idea, which I tried to implement into the BGE, with pretty good results.
