Upcoming release of Invisible Runner

We are working on final details of our second production in collaboration with ‘Devilish Games’. Soon you can enjoy the iPhone version of this innovative title.

‘Invisible Runner’ is a platform game where the character is invisible. The player must go through 25 levels full of surprises using his skill and intuition, with the help of some items that will provide visibility to the character for a few seconds.

In the meanwhile we leave you a video from the flash version:

OpenGL Wrap

OpenGL has several ways to set the texture mapping, one of the most interesting is called ‘Wrap’ (GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_?) This feature indicates how that is going to repeat the texture or be mixed with the border color when they exceed the specified coordinates [0, 1].

Here we offer a brief description of the various wrap modes in OpenGL:
  • GL_CLAMP: Clamps the texture coordinate in the [0,1] range. In the limits the color of texture is combined with the color of the edge.
  • GL_REPEAT: Ignores the integer portion of the texture coordinate, only the fractional part is used, which creates a repeating pattern. This is the default value.
  • GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE: Sets the texture coordinates to [1/2N] (where N is the size of the texture) texels within the texture. This prevents to draw the border color. Available since OpenGL 1.2.
  • GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER: Sets the texture coordinates to [1/2N] (where N is the size of the texture) texels outside the texture. This allows to draw the border color without mixing with the texture color. Available since OpenGL 1.3.
  • GL_MIRRORED_REPEAT: The coordinates are set to the fractional part of the texture coordinate if the integer part is even; if the integer part is odd, then the texture coordinate is set to 1 – the fractional part of the texture coordinate. Available since OpenGL 1.4, or with GL_ARB_texture_mirrored_repeat extension, or since OpenGL ES 2.0, or with OES_texture_mirrored_repeat extension.
Since a picture is much more explanatory than any description, we believe it is better to add it to this mini tutorial.

Note: The sample image has the border color set to red (GL_TEXTURE_BORDER_COLOR) so you can well appreciate it.
