In this three-part tutorial, we take a break from Direct3D api stuff to set up a better system for organizing Drawables and Bindables. Low coupling, high cohesion, and dynamic bullshits for the win.

Topics Covered

Part 1

  • Bindable system (things like shaders, vertex buffers, etc.)
  • Drawable system (things like the game entities that are drawn; they contain a collection of Bindables)
  • Partial protected access inheritance pattern
  • Weird quirk of C++ relating to visibility of protected members in the case of inheritance from a templated class
  • How to update constant buffers using Map / Unmap

Part 2

  • Static collection of per-class Bindable
  • SetIndexFromStatic
  • Sharing cbuffer between instances of TransformCbuf

Part 3

  • Geometric primitives (cone, sphere, prism)
  • Geometry-distorting transforms
  • More Drawable types
  • Factory for drawables with std::generate_n
