[Transcribe] Game Dev Diary – Jan 14 2017 – Building a Computer for Game Development Purpose
This is a transcription of a video which talk about building a computer for game development purpose.
If you cannot view the video in this post, please watch the video from this url: https://youtu.be/ZqqIOjs7NSQ
Alright guys, my name is Wiguan and this is the first episode in this new channel that I call it game dev diary and in this episode I going to feature off on how I going to build my rig.
I will show why I will build a new system instead of using my existing iMac, and why I choose Nvidia graphic card and why DirectX and I will share my system specification as well as problems and challenges.
The Curious Me
I was just doing some routine cleaning with my camera and then come to my mind to do some speed test for the memory card that I use. So the title, ScanDisk vs ADATA is pretty much self-explanatory.
I am still using Nikon D90 and I think the camera still useable for another 5 years, given that I’m using it like a film camera.
All these while, I’m using an SDHC card by ScanDisk. ScanDisk here is the brand. This is a class 4 memory card. This memory card only have the capacity of 8 Gigabytes.
Then now, I got this ADATA brand microSD card that comes with the capacity of 32 Gigabytes. It’s a class 10 memory card. I only realize this when I’m writing this blog post. But let’s continue as I try to make my point.
Maybe I’m just not so smart, but now I get it. I finally able to convert Ayame from just a 2D sprite into the interesting Live2D character. Well, at least for me that is interesting things to do.
Let’s see all from the video below.
Just a small progress update this time.
I spend most of the time optimizing and doing the level design. In visual novel term, I’m making the background. 😛
But since this is 3D game now, we call it level design then.
Please take a look at the video.
There’s video in this post, so if you can’t see it in your email you might as well just come to my blog and watch it there.
So I decide to pursue the “3D” route.
3D background with 2D anime style character just like real visual novel will look like.
Look at the video and tell me what do you think?
1. Setting Up Specific Goals
You set a specific goal for yourself so you won’t get lost or won’t do unnecessary things that will distract you from the success path.
You might seem busy, but doesn’t mean that you are walking up the ladders.
You might be just walking up and down in infinite loop.
You don’t move anywhere.
Thus, set yourself a specific goal and follow it! 😉
If you’re my friend and my circle, most probably you already know that now I’m on my way to finish “A Day With Nana“. It’s just a simple visual novel game that I’m making with Tyrano Builder, a free assets provided by my friends, my own self fantasy storyline as well as my original music composition. Guess what? I’ll be putting on simple voice over by a real Japanese voice… Read More »Code Name : Cyber Robot Girl In Planning!
At first, this project only aims to get half an hour game play from two buddies play around in their small studio, trying to be productive by making impressive portfolio of past works projects. But then, I became so greedy and ambitious. I am then put myself on the stretch goal. Instead of making a simple story visual novel game, I want it to have at least 1 – 2… Read More »A Day With Nana Reached Beta Release Version 0.1
https://ksr-video.imgix.net/projects/2417563/video-691915-h264_high.mp4 So we have this some ambitious guy from Canada that want to make their own anime with the lowest budget that they could, because they spend a lot on their own before pledging for crowd funding. My First Impression To be honest, it’s quite lacking. The trailer just show some mocap rendering of one of the character which I believe her name is Aria, and that’s it. We don’t… Read More »Abyssian Knight – Indie Anime In Production Now
