  • Title: Yo Frankie! - Apricot Open Game Project - Yo Frankie! - Apricot Open Game Blog
    Descriptive info: .. Home.. Gallery.. Team.. About.. Press.. Download Yo Frankie!.. Jul.. 04.. 2009.. YoFrankie 1.. 1.. Posted by:.. Campbell (ideasman42).. in.. Apricot Press.. Its now 7 months after the DVD release, this is the first version of YoFrankie since being an open project at the blender institute.. Version 1.. 1 brings YoFrankie up to date with Blender, taking advantage of new features.. There have also been improvements in the game logic and levels.. Includes the 3 winning levels from the level design competition, with additional improvements.. Updated Game Logic for Blender3D 2.. 49a.. Runs faster, from testing level 1 home: 2.. 48a averages 50fps, 2.. 49a 80fps*.. Cleaned up blend files, materials, textures, animations, unfinished levels.. Loading screen between levels.. yofrankie_1_1b_bge.. zip (120mb) -.. download.. blender.. org.. ,.. NL mirror.. Linux 32, 64bit, Windows 32bit (MacOS binary not included but is compatible with 2.. 49a).. full svn log of changes since 1.. 0.. Of course contributions are still welcome and I intend to keep YoFrankie running with the latest blender, adding levels and content from the community.. * Tested with release builds on 32bit Linux, AMD3800, NVidia 8800.. * Update 1.. 1a*.. fixes the secondary level selector (no sign-post) bug.. momo dancing in credits was missing.. 1b*.. linux 64bit player was an older blender version.. 57 Comments.. May.. 19.. Yo Frankie! New BGE Video.. blengine.. Uncategorized.. Here s a new run-through of the game in the Blender game engine, this time with the music playing in the game, 4x antialiasing, and a decent frame rate.. There s also a multiplayer demo at the end.. ENABLE HQ after pressing play.. Seen the massive surge in BGE projects and development after Apricot? We re trend setting rockstars.. 21 Comments.. Mar.. 17.. Competition Winners Announced.. Blogroll.. Development.. 1st Prize to Moraes Junior s Nut Level.. Moraes s level is really involved with a catapult, ziplines with baskets, lava waterfalls that makes up quite a challenging puzzle.. The aim is to collect all the sheep in the level onto a counterweight that enabled a catapult to launch you to the levels end.. 2nd Prize to Bruno Franci s Lighthouse Level.. Bruno s level is set on a stunning island with interesting areas explore.. The goal is to get to the lighthouse were the game finishes.. 3rd Prize to Bradley Wabbersen s Underworld Level.. Underworld an example of what you can make with existing props.. While its small and not as advanced as the other 2, I m glad a level like this got in.. Download.. (complete data files including new levels 180mb).. Or separate levels that can be copied into the existing YoFrankie data files.. Nut Level (11mb).. Lighthouse Level (9mb).. Underworld Level (0.. 1mb).. Installing the separate levels.. Extract the zip and enter the directory, copy everything (levels, textures, etc) into the original YoFrankie BGE folder released on the DVD or downloaded on-line.. You can start YoFrankie from the menu and these levels will be available from the small level selector world.. These levels will be included with the next release of YoFrankie which will be updated for Blender 2.. 49.. Bugs.. All the levels have some glitches that need to be resolved.. Since this competition is for level design, I accept that level logic and scripts will need tweaking, this can be worked out before inclusion in the next release.. *Update*.. Created a list of things to fix in the levels.. http://wiki.. org/index.. php/Org:Bf-institute/ApricotTODO.. If anyones interested in helping with these edits and general level maintainince, please mail me (ideasman42@gmail.. com).. The levels are now in the subversion repository with all the other YoFrankie files.. If you have svn installed grab them with svn checkout https://svn.. org/svnroot/yofrankie , or with.. tortoisesvn.. on windows.. Thanks for the hard work guys!.. 17 Comments.. Feb.. 28.. Competition Deadline, Checklist.. Its almost over, some submissions have already been handed in but I m expecting to see some more levels so no conclusions yet! Suffice to say that I m happy with the outcome so far and there will be a 1st, 2ns and 3rd.. Heres a list of things to check off before you upload your level to make it easier for me and others to play.. Make sure your blendfile can  ...   Prize 100 Euro.. (Payment via PayPal).. Notes.. You may focus mostly on one area, awesome graphics, great puzzles, fun 2 player, challenging platforms to glide between etc.. This project should be something a non technical artist can finish.. You can make a level without adding any logic bricks or scripts, the players have their own logic, so you can get by with knowing 3-4 property names to assign to different level objects - see the.. wiki.. for details.. Your level doesn t need to use GLSL materials (old texface materials are ok too).. This level will eventually be included with other levels, start by adding your level to the levels directory, and reuse existing groups where possible.. Even if you don t win, your level can still be included in the next release of YoFrankie.. This is not an official Blender Foundation competition, see my contact details below.. To get updated YoFrankie files from Subversion see.. projects.. org/projects/yofrankie.. (includes some texture updates but not a requirement for making your level).. Your not limited to a woodland theme, however if you want to add a new world type (space, ice, underground etc), your giving yourself a bigger project.. No age limit on participating.. Judging.. I ll run a community vote on blender artists, however I ll decide on the final outcome if it seems biased in some way or if people are not able to test levels.. Rules.. Collaboration is fine, but I ll only accept an entry from a single person.. Final level must be under 100mb compressed (excluding existing assets).. No modifications to the player logic (jump height, glide distance etc) - bug fixes are an exception.. Your level must be under the same creative commons license as all existing YoFrankie levels.. No node based materials (just use material-textures for more efficient shaders).. You can enter more then one level.. Level cannot have been entered into a previous competition.. Guidelines.. Texture dimensions should be one of 1024, 512, 256, 128 etc.. With a maximum of 1024 1024, (Animated textures and shadowmaps are an exception, can be 2048 2048).. I m purposefully leaving the poly count undefined, use the existing levels as a reference for polygon density and try to minimize the use of alpha sorted faces.. Level size should be somewhere between the lava level and level_1_home - 20 20 to 120 120 blender units.. Uploading.. There is an open ftp space on blender.. It works like this:.. ftp to: download.. user: anonymous.. password: your email address.. When logged in, go to the directory ‘incoming’.. What you put there is visible here:.. http://download.. org/ftp/incoming/.. This upload space deletes all old files after a couple of weeks, so don’t use it for permanent storage.. Once you have uploaded your level email me and I ll move it to a permanent location.. Useful resources for level editing.. An overview of the game logic used in Yo Frankie! can be found on the.. , which describes in detail things like properties in the game, character and level logic, camera, splash effects and more.. Video tutorial.. on how to create your own level using the level template (library.. blend found in the levels folder).. I ll answer questions on the thread, but you can mail me personally too.. Contact: Campbell Barton - ideasman42@gmail.. com.. *Update* the most useful feedback is taking place on the.. blenderartist thread.. *Update* Compatition starts today, added ftp upload information, good luck!.. 44 Comments..

  • Title: Yo Frankie! - Apricot Open Game Project » About
    Descriptive info: Project Apricot.. After Orange and Peach, Blender Institute continued with a new open project: Apricot.. This time it wasn’t a movie but a 3D game! Starting february 1st 2008, a small team of again the best 3D artist and developers worked on a game jointly with the on-line community.. The main character in the game has been based on the short 3D animation open movie Peach.. The project ended in august, and in october 2008 the DVD and game was released.. The Game.. The original project goal was to work on a cross platform game (at least Linux, Windows, OS X), using Blender for modeling and animation, Crystal Space as 3D engine and delivery platform, and Python for some magic scripting to glue things together.. The purpose was to not only make a compelling 3D game experience, but especially to improve and validate the open source 3D game creation pipeline, with industry-standard conditions.. Halfway during the project, we noticed the great advances made in Blender s internal Game Engine, so we ve added delivering the project entirely in Blender as a target for Apricot as well.. Targets.. - Validation: create full functional game prototype, industry quality.. - Crystal Space development: HDR lighting, game logic, character animation.. - Blender development: animation prototyping, pipeline improvements, GLSL (node) shading editor, improvements in logic editing (states), general Blender GE improvements.. - Realize in Open Source (GPL/LGPL), deliver in Open Content (Creative Commons).. - Education: Training/workshops, presentations, documentation, DVD.. How.. The Blender Foundation and Crystal Space community will be the main financiers for Apricot.. Additional support will be by Grupo Ikusnet and the Dutch Game Days Foundation.. As for the previous open movies, a pre-sale campaign to purchase the DVD has been organized by the Blender Foundation as well as by Crystal Space.. Sponsors or Partners.. Sponsors who have helped realizing Apricot:.. Project Partner:.. Grupo Ikusnet.. Dutch Game Days Foundation.. Sponsor:.. Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst.. Music composition and sound design:.. Claire Fitch.. Hardware:.. Maqina Computersystems.. Sponsor:.. Paravizion.. Redfish.. Nyquist Art + Logic.. tarent.. External consultant gamedesign:.. Wouter Baars.. Donations..

    Descriptive info: Saturday, July 4th, 2009 at 5:52 pm.. 57 Responses to YoFrankie 1.. tatsuyame says:.. July 4th, 2009 at 9:23 pm.. Unfortunately, there are still some bugs involving movement.. When using my gamepad, Frankie constantly moves forward, while turning to the left.. When using my keyboard, I cannot turn left while running, though I can turn right.. (A temporary work around is to rapidly alternately tap the left and up arrow keys; this makes him turn left, but keeps him ready to continue the running animation when up is pressed).. For reference purposes, I m running Windows Vista SP2 32 bit, Blender 2.. 49a, and my gamepad is the Fightpad from Mad Catz.. As for the good, I ve experienced a MASSIVE speed boost, the game is playable at 30fps with full eye candy turned on (and on my rig it wasn t before).. Great job guys!.. Sammi says:.. July 4th, 2009 at 9:38 pm.. Runs in blender and blenderplayer 2.. 49a in osx on my Macbook Pro aluminium, but I can t select any menu item..

Hi, the game is really great, thank you very much and keep up the good work!.. I was particularly struck by the levels nut and lighthouse.. I would like to request the following thins:.. - the camera work isn t ideal, so I request to control the camera with the mouse and run with keyboard (w,a,s,d), like the most role playing games do it.. - the artificial intelligence of the enemies suspend sometimes; e.. g.. the animals hang on objects.. Besides perhaps it would make sense to move the development of YoFrankie to a famous OpenSource plattform like Launchpad, because I think it the project will get more attention and it would make it easier to write bug reports.. skarmiglione says:.. July 24th, 2009 at 11:25 pm..

WAS THE PROJECT ABANDONED ??.. April 10th, 2012 at 12:23 am.. The project is long finished.. It may be updated in the future but as it stands the final product is a 2.. 49a-compatible game demo rough around all of its edges.. Of course it s open source as you know, so anyone can update this to make it compatible with 2.. 6 and fix any bugs.. Pit.. December 7th, 2012 at 11:22 am.. it will be good for game-engine users, to have a 2.. 6 version compatible.. Now, it s an hard way to understand how to use blender game engine without this project.. Thanks to let game-engine alive!..

    Descriptive info: Aug.. 16.. Environment update, shadow maps!.. Here are the latest environment shots from the island and the lava levels, with shadow maps(shadows+ao), and props all around like grass that s the wrong color green, flowers, mushrooms, logs, etc.. There are things that still need to be finished, like fx(note the lava platforms are supported now!), water, lighting, sky, and animated WATER.. Make some noise if you d like to see Brecht add a decent alternative to animation maps for animated textures! No promises, but he s thinking about it.. I ll finish up with these levels this weekend and then next week is a big week.. Everything starts getting wrapped up into a complete package.. Pablo starts working on documentation, Campbell is finishing up with enemy AI, and now we ve even got pesky rats running around! Moraes Junior (aka mangojambo) has been making brilliant animations and will continue with this too.. Next week we ll be posting a video or two showing some special effects and gameplay.. 73 Comments.. Who likes lava?.. Production with the bge is taking off.. We re really motivated by how enthusiastically the blender community received the news about using the bge in this project.. I ve had my doubts as to how many people were actually interested in the bge, but evidently there are a quite lot of you.. Make more noise!.. We re making all new levels for the bge game, and we re bringing in new characters.. Campbell is finishing up the game logic for Frankie, and then shifts focus to implementing enemies and animals to bully.. By the beginning of August we ll be wrapping this game up into a complete package with menus, etc.. We ve also gone over the animation submissions! The animations we decided on using in the game are:.. Marcus Feital s Sleep Idle.. Mango Jambo s Show Off Idle.. Joshua Huf s throwing and minor damage.. Glenn Melenhorst s run cycle.. Thanks guys! Great work.. Mango Jambo, for crediting you, is that your real name, because that would be awesome.. Now below are some wip screenshots from our first level in the bge.. The environment is missing enemies, plants, ground props, special effects, and all importantly, shadow/ambient occlusion maps.. 74 Comments.. Jun.. 27.. Animate Frank!.. UPDATE:.. Tomorrow there will be an update with those animations we ll be including.. Thanks for all the contributions, you guys are doing awesome, keep going! There s also been a few questions,  ...   to the blend file in this post in the comments below.. We ll look at all of the entries and if your animation is awesome, we ll include it in the game and you ll get a spot in the credits.. We won t be able to be the director to everyone making animations, so only animators whose work we include will receive a reply.. When you post your work, be sure to leave your name and email address.. All work that s sent to us and is included in the game will be released under the same license as the game, Creative Commons 3.. 0 Attribution.. Some animations we have are placeholders that need to be redone, so look through the actions list in the blend file and find one you think would be fun to redo, and do it.. Here s a list of some of the animations we really need though.. As far as style for animation goes, we re looking for fun and exaggerated animations.. Idle(fun stuff, scratching his ass, etc.. ).. Jump.. Double Jump(front flip, wing flap for boost, etc).. Getting hurt(minor damage).. Getting hit(impacted, rammed into).. Shimmy left and right while hanging on ledge.. Falling(dropping down from a high place).. Throwing nuts.. 75 Comments.. 25.. Shadow Baking!.. More awesome blender dev.. It s there at last, the bake panel has existed far too long without the shadow bake option.. Thanks Cambo! The plan for the BGE game is to use dynamic shadows for the character, and bake shadows for the level.. Note the quad split option in the image above.. Blender s baking needed an option for quad splitting as well.. Internally, most systems will split a quad into 2 triangles, and blender s no exception.. It checks for non-planar (bent) quads and splits them in the direction that gives the least distortion.. While good for rendering models, this causes a problem for baking because the split direction can differ from the one used to display and export.. One solution is to triangulate all faces before baking and exporting, but this isn t ideal since it would loose the edge loop topology and make models harder to edit later.. To make matters more confusing, graphics card don t all split quads the same way, but many game engines just convert to triangles when exporting.. Campbell was also kind enough to add this option to split quads in a predictable manner (0,1,2) (.. ) etc.. 29 Comments..
