Flash to the Max! High Performance 3D Graphics in Silent Hunter Online

Eugen Jiresch  |  Programmer, Sproing Interactive Media GmbH


Location: Congress Saal 1

Format: Lecture
Track: Programming
Vault Recording: Video


When Adobe introduced Stage 3D into Flash, many compromises were made to ensure maximum compatibility in browsers and computers across the board. Overcoming these constraints, we tried to push the limits as far as we could in the latest release of Ubisoft's browser submarine game, Silent Hunter Online. This technical talk will cover how we successfully ported our multi-platform C++ console rendering engine into Flash using Actionscript/Stage3D, as well as using AGAL for graphical effects such as ocean rendering or other SFX. We will share the biggest obstacles that we ran into and how we overcame them, as well as give insight into problems that have persisted.
