I am a game developer with a fairly broad knowledgebase in the fields of animation and graphics, with a touch of AI.

comment OpenGL additive blending not working as expected
"When the sprites overlap, all I get is solid red." And... what exactly do you expect to get? Because, unless you're rendering to a high-dynamic range framebuffer, additive blending is almost always the wrong thing to do. So why do you want additive blending?

comment How does CryEngine track downloads of games using their engine?
@Derfder: Your question has been answered: you tell them. And if you don't tell them or lie to them, then you suffer the consequences of attempting to defraud someone and not upholding the your end of the contract. You're trying to find some automatic means for something that's really very simple. You entered into a binding contract with them. If you play them dirty, then they take you to court.

comment How does CryEngine track downloads of games using their engine?
@Derfder: They can sue you if they think you're lying to them. And once that happens, they can subpena your records on the matter. And if you don't keep them or destroy them, then you're probably in legal trouble.

@user357320: That might be true if game developers/gamers were at all consistent about how they name anything.

comment Early Z-test / depth-test in DirectX 11
@SeanMiddleditch: That sounds more like conservative depth, rather than an enforced depth test. It's a hint you use so that early depth can still happen even if you change the depth, because you promise not to make it smaller or larger than the original.

comment Early Z-test / depth-test in DirectX 11
Here's a sub-question that's not worth an actual question. GL 4.2+ has a way of forcing early-z by using a specific fragment shader setting. This also turns off the ability to write to gl_Depth (so that the value that gets tested with the depth is the value that gets written if it passes). This is mainly for image load/store operations. Does D3D 11 have something similar? And if so, how does it work?

comment Starting off C++ games development?
I didn't do it, but suggesting cplusplus.com is probably worth a downvote. There are many errors on that site.

comment What is the correct and most efficient approach of streaming vertex data?
There's ultimately no way to know, since OpenGL ES runs on an extremely wide variety of hardware.
