ETC Term Projects

SurfaceScapes

The objective of the SurfaceScapes project is to create a proof-of-concept for playing tabletop role-playing games on the Microsoft Surface Table. We will be using Dungeons and Dragons as a basis for our prototype, with the option for future expansion to other role-playing games. SurfaceScapes will provide Game Masters and players with a set of features to enhance the combat and role-playing aspects of tabletop games. This will include the ability to interact with the digital environment using real objects such as miniatures and provide automated calculations and visual and audio feedback for actions performed by the player and non-player characters. We are taking traditional tabletop role-playing games to the next level, adding a new layer of immersive and intuitive gaming to the Microsoft Surface Table and assisting both GMs and players in enjoying exciting and engaging adventures.

 

Sketch-It-Up!

“Sketch it up!” is a software for testing game ideas in minutes with no coding, during idea creating phase of game production. We started on a pre-existing software and turn it into a product with a team of six. We worked in scrum cycles of two weeks. My role was to totally rewrite the network system to make it much more optimized and safe; make the server realize disconnected clients and clear resources; add simple shadows to the objects; write undo, redo, record movement and loop movement functions. We use Panda3d engine with Python.

We have given a demo of this software in ICEC'09 in Paris. link

 

Building Virtual Worlds Projects

These following 5 projects are made in 2 week cycles with a team of 4 which changes every round.

DragonForce

In this experience the player uses head mounted display and magnetic sensors to enter the world of magical dragons. Player is bound to the dragon upon its birth. He trains and helps the dragon through events that changes the dragons life.

 

Blind Date

The audience uses remotes to help our main character ( me ) through a blind date! This round's theme was story telling

 

Wizball

The player uses his shadow on the projection screen to play a virtual themed pinball game and defeats a wizard in the end! This round was only one and a half week long.

 

Mine Cart Adventure

The player rides a mine cart through a collapsing mine. The player experienced the world through a head mounted display and navigating around with a stick. This round was native user round. The game was designed to be played by people who have no experience in this kind of gaming.

We have show this world in the reception of ICEC'08 and also BVW Show ' 08

 

Steward's Snowboard Adventure

The player uses head mounted display and trackers for helping a snowman by throwing penguins at a dragon who wants to melt the snowman while sliding down from a mountain! This round theme was to help somebody who is afraid of another person.

 

Sabancı University Projects

Bird's Sight in VR

A virtual reality environment was created for experiencing the world through the eyes of a bird. The users arm motion is tracked by magnetic motion tracking equipment and thus enable him/her to fly over a city with only swinging arms. The user can see the world in 3D as human sight or in 2D with 300 degrees of sight to simulate bird sight. We worked with OpenGL and low level tracker drivers in C++.

 

Dızar

We have designed and developed a 3d video game in a team of two as a part of our Computer Graphics course. We have implemented collision detection, simulated dynamics, multiplayer support over a network, artificial intelligence, 3D sound support, user interface as well as using phong shaders for smoother looking objects in the world. We have used Opengl API and GLUT and write the code in C++.

 

Non-CS Project

Helica

My first 3d animation. I used Maya 8.

 

Agent 262

My second 3d animation project. I worked with two other students on creation of this project. We used Maya 8.5

 

Disco Science

A music video we created for Visual Story class at ETC. I have done all the editing.

 

Independent Project

BannerRunner

Bannerrunner is a tool I have developed to address the course registration problems in my undergrad university. The students have to spend hours in front of their pc's to enter the bannerweb to register to their courses. They have to click the enter button see if it is successful and if not use the back button in the browser and do the cycle again until they got in the system. This tool automates this process and adds more features. It has multiple threads running at the same time so it is much faster than any human being can ever be. And even if we got a login screen because of the heavy load on the server there is a chance that the user cannot login so BannerRunner logs in with the pre entered user id and password and if the login is unsuccessful continues on trying without notifying the user. If it is successful it plays a nice Mario song to notify the user that login was successful. But BannerRunners advantages don't finish once we login the site as it has buttons to navigate into the add drop course page which is a few pages deep from the main screen.

Currently I estimate it to be used by over couple thousand people every course registration period, and I have released more than 15 versions to address various bugs and feature request from the users. The latest version has an automated update function build in.
