Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course students learn how to bridge gaps between medias. At first they learn how to program games with a game engine based on C++. Then they put every rendered frame into a video codec, and send the output data over a network to a client, that shows the result and allows feedback sent to the game server.

Assessment and permitted materials

Every week students have to solve a unique task. At the end of a semester students have to present a final unique game of their own, together with a streaming client.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least 60% of the tasks must be done, and at the end of the semester there must be a running game (game project) and streaming client. Grading depends on weekly tasks (70%) and game project (30%). The grade is positive only if there is a working game at the end and is presented PERSONALLY! Depending on the weighted sum, the grade is computed as:
S>90% : Sehr Gut (1)
S>80% : Gut (2)
S>70% : Befriedigend (3)
S>59% : Genügend (4)
S<60% Nicht Genügend (5)
