Programming with C# and Unity 3D game engine – part 001 .

This tutorial will cover the first steps programming with C#.
The C# is an more complicated language like another programming language.
Now, C# it is an object-oriented programming language like C++ or Java.
If you know this programming language then will be easy to you to use C#.
First in C# the entry point of program is a static function called Main inside a class, not more than one.
If you want to compile one C# program then you can use the compiler:
cc yourprogram.cs
… or just use the Mono IDE.
C# has data types, operators, variables, constants, typecasts, branching like any programming language.
Also C# allow you to create your own data types. This mean the C# is an extensible language.
Let’s see more about this:

  • data types: bool,byte, sbyte, char, short, ushort, int, uint, float, long, ulong, double, decimal
  • operators: +,-,*,/,%,++,–,*=,/=,-=,%=,>>=,<<=, bitwise, logical, shifting operators …
  • variables: int my_var = 1;
  • constants: const float my_const = 5;
  • typecasts: C# need to know if is an explicit and implicit conversions.
  • branching: if, switch, while, for, do-while, …

After you open the Unity 3D IDE the next step is to create the C# script.
Right click with the mouse into Project tab, like in the next image and simply create the script.
unitycsharp_script
The default script is named NewBehaviourScript and come with this source code:

You can see the class NewBehaviourScript calls to the Unity Engine ( see: using UnityEngine).
Also two functions:
Start() – this is called when the scene first launches and Update() – This is called in every frame that the game runs.
Unity 3D will rewrite the class name in your C# script when you will rename your script in the Project panel.
You can create new scripts and also can be used to call different features of the game engine.
Foe example you can create one new script to move, rotate or scale one object from Unity 3D Engine.

The driverquery command take one inventory of your installed drivers.

If you want a compact record of installed drivers in a format that you can review later, use the driverquery command.

I use this to list all my drivers like a list with /V arg to produce a detailed (verbose) listing.

You can use also with this output : “TABLE”, “LIST”, “CSV” .

Blender 3D – version 2.7 anf MakeHuman – export file mhx .

New Blender 3D version 2.7 series has been released with new features. Also the MakeHuman 3D software come with Blender 3D export file.
This is fix and make more easy to working with 3D file – mhx.
After you create and export your character under MakeHuman you need to make some settings under Blender 3D.
First go to File – User Preference – Addons (tab) and search this addon and check it:
blender-makehuman-001
If you receive this error then is need to activate Python.
blender-makehuman-002
This it’s simple to do it. Just use same path : File – User Preference – File (tab). .
blender-makehuman-003
The character created with MakeHuman will be insert into 3D Blender view.
See the next image rendered with Blender 3D.
blender-makehuman-004
One good feature of MakeHuman is the way to make the character object.
You can see how easy can be animated under Blender 3D.

Windows cmd – verifier .

The command verifier it’s one great tool that is included in every version of Windows since Windows 2000.
Is used to detect and troubleshoot many driver issues that are known to cause system corruption, failures, or other unpredictable behavior.
Also this is not working like antivirus or another tool to fix your operating system.
In Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating system, all the features of Enhanced I/O Verification are included as part of I/O Verification.
So it’s not necessary to select the Enhanced I/O Verification option in Driver Verifier Manager or from the command line.
Just run it into command prompt and will see something like this :
