Pi the Demo(Scene)
« on: April 20, 2024, 09:33:52 pm »
I saw people introduce there Games and DemoScene Effect in this Forum,
so I thought why not to mention my Demo, Pi:
https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=94183

To see the Source just click on the Source Button. Its nothing exiting BUT
I'm proud of my gfx library, vipGFX
https://sourceforge.net/projects/vipgfx/

It is a vscreen based, all drawing routines included(most of them written in fast asm) for 32bit and 64bit platforms(Linux, Windows, DOS, MAC Intel/AArch64) 2D engine.
Use it for Demos, Games and programs made with Lazarus(it draws also on a Canvas).

I'm still developing it, so if You find any Bugs or have suggestions, mail me or write a PM.
I'm happy to help.
Joint the #fpc IRC Channel on Libera (irc.libera.chat:6697) I'm there.

Live a positive comment on Pouet or Blame me for not giving a proper credit to Clint Mansell for the Music ;)

Right at that moment my comment would not be so pretty no matter about a named sound artist :D
OS: Windows 10 64bit
AV: Kaspersky AntiVirus - 64bit (no alert, nothing blocked)
Downloaded Pi.zip, extracted to a non-Windows-write-protected folder, run "pi_win.exe" with and without "l" argument.
same for pidemo-code-f77f924a33f9d102da1486d0f17f90c3df534ac4.zip where inside \BIN\ the pi.zip file is located.
Does it have any hard- or software requirements that I am not aware about?

...buuuut
I did found and run DarkHour made by you, classic intro in millenium style, plasma, fast fading, different scrollers, neon look, epilepsy pushing effects, that you should port over to your vipGFX for a high-res scaled version of it?
Nice work on that, good classic one!

I can run it! Win10 x64, very old PC with Intel i3 CPU and very old NVidia GeForce.
Theme is very psychotic, which I do not like.
What I also did not like is the REPEATING picture of some 'spot' or 'neuron network' in the center.
But thanks.

hm...
It runs at my Machine, it runs on the Compo Machine, it runs on all Machines i tested.
perhaps Kaspersky, usually Defender pops up? perhaps the bass sound library? perhaps my own code?
its a pity :(
sorry for that

I'm exited if the Linux version works.

it is a honor to me you liked it :)

what learned from making demos is, I would never again use 256 Color (DarkHour) and 3th party libraries(Bass).

I still try to make it run, 2 errors corrected that stopped the initial loading sequence:

original:

  1.   bassChn := BASS_StreamCreateFile(FALSE, PChar(ExtractFilePath(ParamStr(0))+'/pi.mp3'), 0, 0, 0);
fixed:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1.   bassChn := BASS_StreamCreateFile(FALSE, PChar(ExtractFilePath(ParamStr(0)) + PathDelim + 'pi.mp3'), 0, 0, 0);

and now it stops here:

I compiled it only with the Trunk.

roundss is a SSE instruction

No, ExtractFilePath gives the text with trailing slash already.
ExtractFileDir - not.

Could you test and confirm if its running as it should at most likely same speed?
Here it breaks after some word spoke, some browny plasma flying around, some font faded in and out.
If you say that speed perform now bad than I stop translating it :D

error: roundss undefined
I was not precise enough, error is "Illegal Instruction"

Here it breaks after some word spoke, some browny plasma flying around, some font faded in and out.
Again I failed to tell some important news, that statement was meant for "ShadowInTheBox" .

Now I have found a folder called "draw32.all.pas", where it seems to be the original header translation is inside, when saying original I mean interpreted as pascal source.

Here are my latest changes, when I find a time I might rewrite more, from point of speed my way could be a few ticks faster than the original.

  45.               end;
  46.           end;
  47.       end;
  48. end;

There are many more methods that could be overhauled, for both 32 and 64bit.
Currently I just use the "original" 64bit and added my two patches, it works great now.

@KodeZwerg:
"Shadow in the Box"....
 Wow :)  You cloned all my repos


and YES! Your version is faster, you saved 2 calls in the inner loop, that's good for cache :)


You like the idea behind vipGFX?

Does Pi runs now? You like it? You knew the Film?

@KodeZwerg:

 Wow :)  You cloned all my repos
I was curious why it did not work and loaded another repo in that used vipGFX to learn from where it fails on my test machine.

and YES! Your version is faster, you saved 2 calls in the inner loop, that's good for cache :)
Good to hear, time for VSync :D

You like the idea behind vipGFX?
I have to say, what you have done works smooth and fast, I mean no flicker, so for you that knows how to handle it correctly, its a great helper, for me as a new-born, its first of all a challenge to find how out something works and how I can use such for my own pleasure.
I was not checking yet the folders since it is a lot that I downloaded lol
Does a demo for vipGFX exists that works with internal created images or image data?
Like how do I fill a rectangle/ellipse/pie at TRect coordinates (to prepare internal a buffered image that I easy can transport to some display method ....)
How do I put text from a TFont on screen?
Such basic stuff to learn how to work with your lib would be amazing, maybe such already exists and I was ignorant  :-[
Later slightly more advanced, what image fileformat can be loaded from a stream to be used within vipGFX, that way I could store my images compressed within source instead of external data.
As you might noticed, interested I am, if I become a fan of DirectX compared vs OpenGL, hard to answer, best would be that I could choose a renderer and vipGFX offers the methods to use them.
My selfish answer would be, it doesnt matter to me since I anyway just code for windows :D

Does Pi runs now? You like it? You knew the Film?
It's running!
If I be a neutral judge, here are my category points (0 worst, 10 max)
 - from point of how good works one scene with another: 6 to 7
 - from point of how good does sound match screen: 8
 - from point of used different effects: 7
 - from point of filesize vs enjoyment: 4 to 5 (its more the filesize of your data.dat that count in negative)
 - from point of high-res usage: 2
 - from point of power usage: 3 to 4 (can just judge my own build of the directX headers, used fpc latest stable)
 - from point of coolness factor: 7
So all in all my feeling for "liking it" is higher than that I was bored.
The movie I do not know yet.

After watching the trailer with original movie intro, last comparision to judge is how close is it to the original: pretty high beside missing text blend ins it look and feel like original.
To be honest I would need to turn slow-mo on, for both, your intro and original trailer, to be able to say that here or there are too huge differences as to judge it good anymore.

From my side both thumbs up!

Yes enjoy

See the ./doc Folder

en ellipse and pie are not supported jet.
"TRect" are always just x and y and letz say radius for circle....

How do I put text from a TFont on screen?
There is a FreeType 1 integration, as it is a native pascal library

the doc is not complete, just tell me what you wanna knew and I add it to the doc.

under Windows You can chose between DirectX, OepnGL and WIN32 API to flip on the screen

Don't do that :) it is not 100% :(

Thats my next mission, try to convert that simple copperbar demo I've lately made (BGRA & BGL) to the world of vipGFX.
If I dont find what I need, like basic things I've earlier mentioned, dot, line, rectangle etc... I might create some to simplify the conversation (bitmap/canvas -> vipgfx)
tell them at Pouet.net :(
I've tried, see attachment, feel free to put there a link up that point to here so interested can read my opinion(s) :D
