Famo.. us: Do We Really Need Another JavaScript Framework?..

Janssen questions whether the world really needs another JavaScript framework: Is it a bad thing that Famo.. us replaces major parts of HTML5? To be honest, I m not sure.. As a Front-end developer I have to admit it makes me slightly uneasy to have to use a custom API instead of standard HTML5.. On the other hand, like almost everyone that makes web apps for a living, I have been terribly frustrated by some of HTML5 limitations, like slowness and browser incompatibilities.. Either way, it might be a good thing to try a fundamentally different approach so I m keeping an open mind for now.. us chases another holy grail, namely the write once, run anywhere dream.. Instead of having to write different code for different platforms, like iOS and Android, developers can write one application that works and looks as good on all platforms, in theory anyway.. This of course saves a huge amount of time and resources.. Unfortunately, this idea is not without its problems and has never really worked very well with earlier attempts like Java-applets, Flash and Silverlight..

  • Title: SkullCraft Splash Screen created with webGL utilizing voxelJS, Processing, and the Hype Framework
    Descriptive info: September.. So I recently re-released TweetBlaster as.. BotBlaster.. dropping twitter integration.. I will also be releasing an iOS and Amazon App versions soon.. I may in the future add support for in app purchases like weapons etc.. So moving on I have decided to concentrate my efforts on creating a new game system for unity which might take longer but reaps better rewards.. One flaw of my previous approach to video game development was the need for custom built models.. This is a slow process which sometime requires purchasing assets from other professionals to use.. My next game will avoid this entirely.. I plan on creating all the art assets algorithmically.. All graphics for the next game I will create myself.. In bot blaster there is also a lack of a story line this will not happen with.. SkullCraft.. will have a story to compliment the game play.. I want the next game to have 3 game genre types available within the levels.. Those types will include racing game, accelerometer controlled level, and RPG.. I want to first develop the game in webGL using.. voxelJS.. I would then like to port over what I have created with voxelJS to unity3d.. I would also like to make this library have assets that can be easily dropped in to create cool effects and games quickly.. I plan on hosting all the changes of the desktop webGL version on github so it will be open source.. So this post is only the first of many because this game will take me a significant amount of time to develop.. I have also been trying to create more art work with Processing in my spare time.. So my blog might sometimes begin to discuss utilizing processing to create algorithmic art and taking those creations from the computer to the canvas.. I have also been keeping these sketches up on github so feel free to explore my.. sketch book.. This demo uses the.. In this example you will see how to use.. processing.. to create textures for 3d objects within voxelJS.. It is important to realize that voxelJS is built on top of.. threeJS.. so most  ...   and it is fun to utilize it within threeJS.. I know that I can create a variety of special fx rapidly utilizing these methods.. In my opinion the way to go is to load all of the processing code via javascript.. When you go to the.. processingJS.. website they do have easier ways to lazy load the scripts although what we will be using.. ProcessingJS compiles your processing file to javascript so if you want you can write the processing entirely in javascript or mixin some javascript functions.. var.. $projDiv.. =.. $.. '#pContain'.. ;.. canvasRef.. ' canvas id= skullz / '.. p1.. new.. loadSketchFromSources.. 'skullz'.. ,.. 'scripts/skullz.. pde'.. $projDiv.. append.. canvasRef.. //this code is called to initialize the processing code.. canvasCallback.. add.. prCodeInit.. createText.. fire.. 'createText'.. //this code is used to wrap the 2d canvas to the threejs model.. wrapTexture.. function.. canvas.. document.. getElementById.. texture.. window.. game.. THREE.. Texture.. canvas.. texture.. needsUpdate.. true.. material.. MeshBasicMaterial.. overdraw.. map.. side.. DoubleSide.. transparent.. wrapS.. wrapT.. RepeatWrapping.. // in the code you will see the processing pde files that are called.. Thoughts on the future.. I may also port this to.. away3D.. It is no secret that I love ActionScript and this might be cool and run fast on Air Mobile as well but my first quest is to get it done for webGL then port it to Unity3d and then we will see where things head from there.. I also believe that with the next version of Android we will see webGL support within Android and I am sure iOS can t be far behind.. With webGL I know I have the most flexibility because I can use javascript canvas to create animated textures this is not an easy task within unity3d if you do not have a pro version.. That might be an advantage when it comes to Air but the most important thing beyond story line and graphics / style, is game play and performance.. It has to perform well to be played.. #perfomanceisking.. Virtual Painting with Hype.. Away3D with Hype Fish Tank.. Processing JS.. Tweet Tank in Away3D and Hype..

  • Title: TweetBlaster is available now on the Play Store
    Descriptive info: April.. 07.. So I choose to use.. which has some really nice features built in for game developers.. It was a tough decision in regards to what technology to choose for creating TweetBlaster.. TweetBlaster is written in UnityScript (unity3d s version of JavaScript) and C#.. When I originally wrote this game it went through several iterations the first version was a javascript canvas game.. But at the time on mobile devices the canvas game was simply not fast enough.. I then ported the game over to webGL unfortunately most mobile devices do not support webgl by default.. So I eventually decided I would purchase and use Unity3d to get the job done.. It is a really good technology for game development possibly one of the best game engines around.. So What is.. TweetBalster.. ?.. TweetBlaster.. is a social first person shooter that s also a simple game of tag.. When you submit tweet hash tags into TB, it populates the levels with them.. Each time you Blast in TB, you send a tweet randomly picked from the ones you submitted.. This tweet notifies the user that you have Blasted their tweet..  ...   my experiments and future games.. The reason for this is primarily to become better at C++ and because I can port C++ applications relatively painlessly to Adobe Air and webGL.. To do this I will utilize.. Flascc.. Emscripten.. I have seen some great webGL ports using emscripten that run blazingly fast even on mobile devices.. I also fully expect that when the next version of Android is released Key Lime Pie it will most likely support webGL by default.. Another added benefit will be that If I want to build a native version I will always have that option it will obviously just be a pain to re-write pieces of the applications for different platforms.. Right now I am in the process of evaluating porting over.. Jedi Outcast.. from native to webGL.. So hopefully in the near future I will be able to share with you what I have learned.. I am also studying.. openFrameworks.. Cinder++.. because when I write a new game I would like it to be utilizing one of those frameworks.. Using voxelJS with Processing and Hype.. Away3D Mobile App with Source.. WebGL Rendering of BSP Maps.. PlayStore.. Tweet..
