Random dev thoughts

12/01/2013: Christmas + New Year are now officially over for both sides of my family so it’s time for me to get off my l**y a** and get back to coding. New Year’s resolution for Divide? Finish up the lighting/shadowing code (at least up to a usable level). Optimise the Hell out of it so …

Even with the very useful and well written animation loader class from Scott at No Limits Designs (i.e. this), some things still don’t add up … First, his class is for D3D and that implies a lot of transposes around the code.

New A.I. system, PhysX 3.1.1 and fixed that damned water transparency and depth sorting issue

The A.I. part: For a final’s exam this semester, I had to develop a multi-agent system that could play team-based 2-on-2 tenis (with a soccer ball) and came up with this: It’s just the first test of the AI Framework used to create multiple agents for single or team-based interactions.
