Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

GPU Particles programming

What?

want to write a GPU particles module for n-body problem simulation. Basically, I want each particle to "pull" every other particle to itself.

How?

want to use a shader for gpgpu calculations. In particular I want a 'texture', storing in its 'pixels' the coordinates of each particle. I suggest the current implementation of particle system is somewhat similar to this (isn't it?). So, for start, for each particle I would iterate through this 'texture' and 'apply' forces. O(n^2), oh well.

Problem

t seems I can't find the implementation of existing particle modules in the engine source, for example the source of "PointGravity" module. I've found a large .cpp file with couple of methods implemented, but no hlsl\usf files. Documentation lacks information about GPU particle system implementation, only the usage.

Question

lease, someone, point me to the sources of the "PointGravity", where are the calculations? I need to understand how to make the "PointGravity" module from scratch.
