3D Graphics / London / Mon 21st Jan 2019

Post by helpful » Sat Jan 19, 2019 3:55 pm

(yeah yeah, I know, very late notice :oops: but at least next month's meeting details are already announced :D )

The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

3D Graphics and Sound, presented by Anthony Bartram, AMCOG Games
Monday 21st January 2019, 7.45pm
The Blue Eyed Maid, upstairs in the restaurant
173 Borough High Street, SE1 1HR

Since Tony's last visit to ROUGOL, a mere 18 months ago, he has released two more original games for RISC OS. As with all his games they feature original music tracks and are written in BBC BASIC with full source supplied.

This month's meeting will mainly focus on Island of the Undead, which was Tony's first game to feature 3D vector graphics, requiring additional routines to be added to the AMCOG Development kit. Tony will be talking about features such as:
- The painters algorithm
- Billboarding
- Rendering the screen

He will also discuss how he adapted the 360 degree motion from Island of the Undead for his latest game Stunt Drivers, and the somewhat "scalatrix" approach to the computer controlled cars in the game.

If there is still time, there will also be news on the next update to the free sound synthesiser RDSP (RISC OS Digital Signal Processor), which is hoped to include reverb/overdrive effects and a recording facility, as it heads towards a formal release of version 1.0.

ROUGOL's venue is easy to reach by public transport from in and around London and the south east:
- 2 minutes walk from Borough tube station
- 5 minutes walk from London Bridge station
- 10 minutes from Waterloo (two stops eastbound on the Jubilee line to London Bridge)
- 20 minutes from Euston and Kings Cross/St Pancras (southbound on the Bank branch of the Northern Line to Borough)

The meetings take over the pub's upstairs restaurant for the evening. Entry is free, food & drink plentiful (but not free!).
