From TF2 channel "Uncle Danes" video "I visited valve" we actually know that from the 16 TF2 developers only 4 to 5 are actual programmers.

Game engines cannot do that unless you refactor the code. If they mean basically copy-pasting, then yeah, of course, but it technically wouldn't be the same code anymore.

Axipixel (1 year ago)
Yes they can, Tyler, on your game engine question. Imagine GoldSrc and Source. Source2 isn't nearly as much of a huge difference as GoldSrc and Source and yet you can do all kinds of stuff between GoldSrc and Source. Infact, Hammer can be used to edit some assets and maps from HL1. It's part of the reason Half-Life Source was so easy to make. The same kind of difference is how we can understand some of the leaked Source2 files now and then, like the zipline from a long time ago, or the Dota 2 glass breaking code.

did J.J Abrams ever said that the Half life movie is a remake ? Maybe we get a oposing force 2 or directly half life 3 :O that would be sick. Still i would more like it if i could play it not watching it.

3:36 Source 2 is based off of Source 1 but has major changes which is why things like ui will need to be redone however for things like models and textures they can be ported which with a batch script is as easy as clicking a button. As seen from the half-life 2 leaked beta valve loves batch scripts that do everything.

As far as game engines go, you can stick bits of the old engine into the new engine if they both support the same language. Other than that, it's quite difficult.

Source is a very bare bones modular engine. It provides a framework to build on top of with other modules. It would make sense that source 2 operates in much the same way. Also, It would make sense that some objects from source 2 can be interchanged with source. Most programmers or developers in general utilize resources that they have made in the past. This means that there is probably a lot of source 1 source code in the source 2 engine. Why rewrite 400 lines of code when you can just get something that you've done before and reuse it. Since much of the code is similar in some modules, they don't have to change much of anything to go between the 2 engines.

as much as I love valve, all their products, and steam, I still cant help but think that my wishes for a new regular PC game (one that does not require VR) or... a game at all from valve will never become true. It has been over 5 years since any real games from the company (im not counting "The Lab" because its more of a showcase for VR than a fully fledged game), 6 years for a true single player game, and with how things are beginning to look, Valve seems to have more focus on VR/Game tech and Steam rather than any actual games. With most companies, they need to release games, that is how they make money, but the same cant be said for Gabe Newell and Valve, in all honesty and my opinion, I believe these leeks are just... false and made up documents/code that have been jumbled up to keep the masses at bay and that we will never have another Gabe Newell masterpiece, let alone a conclusion to the half life series. Valve can at least count to 5, because that's how many years its been since we've had anything new game-wise. I wish the same could have been said for their addictive series, and in all honesty, I really, really, really, really, hope I'm wrong

This has restored my hope, I feel like we're not in the dark so much anymore. I feel enlightened. It's great to see them finally getting things done again. I've been waiting so long for any kind of announcement regarding the actual game development they're doing, just hearing him give us a definite "yes" on single player games coming in the future, new Source 2 projects, the Half-Life/Portal movie(s) being effectively confirmed, this is just wonderful to me.

Source and Source 2 are not 'independent game engines'. Just look at Source and GoldSrc, one is just a fork of the other. They added some new fancy bells and whistles and called it a different engine. When Source 2 hits the public you will see that it's the same shitty engine that Valve has been reusing for 20+ years, which they stole from Quake in the first place. What triggers me the most is that Valve didn't even fucking make CSGO.
thefoolishgmodcube (1 year ago)
"While the engine served as the basis for GoldSrc, Gabe Newell has stated that a majority of the code used in the engine was created by Valve themselves, not taken from Quake" look that up in the wikipedia. The engine isn't properly multithreaded, so what? Many games were made from that engine, none of them had major bugs (if there are today, Valve tends to fix them or it doesn't have a big impact on gameplay) and modding is easy to do with the updated source sdk bases, you can even start the coding from scratch if you want. What's impressive about Source 2? The real question is: What's *going* to be impressive in Source 2? Remember that the engine is not finished yet, but if you look at the screenshots of the l4d2 level, dota 2 and the aperture lab into Source 2, you get an idea of what Valve will make at the very end, and it's not just a graphic improvment, but also a software improvment, don't forget about the new version of Hammer, Valve plans to make Hammer simplier for the mappers.
Spooky Ghost (1 year ago)
First of all goldsource did not have more original valve code than id software code. Both are open source, go look yourself. I think the word you're looking for is "innovator" but that's not remotely accurate. Valve did not 'invent' HDR in the slightest. The only thing that was remotely impressive about Source Engine's physics are things that aren't even used in the most popular Source Engine game (CSGO) and were gimmicky at best. After nearly 20 years of recycling the same engine, it still isn't even properly multithreaded. What the fuck is mind-blowing to you about Source 2???
thefoolishgmodcube (1 year ago)
It doesn't matter how low the quality was on the initial engine, goldsource had more valve coding than normal quake engine ending, but the source engine grantly improved by the time, it had better performance, it invented hdr and it has better physics than doom 3 and quake 4 physics combined, and now valve is working on source 2, this is a mind blowing, remember that valve is a renovator, you want it, he names it.
Spooky Ghost (1 year ago)
They could but it would be trash compared to John Carmack's engine. The thing about that is that John Carmack has made multiple excellent engines since then while Valve is using one of the shittiest engines of modern gaming. If you think the Source engine is quality compared to what an actual competent and intelligent programmer could do, you are not a smart person.
pntg0nチャネル (1 year ago)
Spooky Ghost The only reason valve took quake engine is because they didn't want to spend so much time working on the base. If you really think a person, who worked for microsoft can't make a game engine using OpenGL, you are not a smart person.

If you want to know how Source2 works just look at Dota2, Robot Repair and Destinations. Basically it's this; Source(1) has been taken apart and every subsystem has been put into separate external modules (DLL's on Windows) that can be replaced on a per-game basis. For instance "the big" change, and something that Source modders couldn't do was to replace the actual render system, for that you needed to have total source code access. If you modded Source with the official SDK you were stuck with Valves BSP format, and their DX9 render pipeline. In Source2 the render pipeline can be configured and replaced as the developer sees fit. Every Source2 subsystem lives in a separate external library, and if you look at the API they are all identical (there's 2-3 API calls including a way to enumerate the capabilities - not dissimilar to how COM on Windows works). This allows every part of the Source2 engine to be used externally, for instance in the level editor. The new Hammer is capable of loading and using the new physics engine, the sound engine, the configured render system, directly without the actual engine running. It's worth nothing that the render systems used in Dota2, Dota2 VR mode, and Robot Repair / Destinations are actually three separate ones, since unlike Source you're not bound to a single renderer and map format. The render system used in RR and Destinations is actually very simple. It's a single pass forward renderer with similar capabilities to the one used in The Lab that they released for Unity. It doesn't support things like area portals, BSP trees, or other fancy culling algorithms and it's completely unsuited for an actual FPS game. It can really only do small levels since there's no support for a pre-computed PVS of some form. The renderer used in Dota2 VR mode is similarly made especially for that singular purpose (it's called DotaVr or similar in the config files). Similarly the renderer used in the Dota2 main game was specially made for that purpose as well (top down, special culling requirements, fog of war support, etc). In Robot Repair they throw the entire level onto the GPU (everything is prefabs / 3D models) and use Lua scripting to do the geometry culling. Whilst you're in the room and the walls are up, the GPU render distance is clamped with the help of a Lua script (it simply sets a cvar). Also the entire room with Atlas and P-body is flagged as invisible until you open the door at which point the script toggles the geometry to a visible state. When the walls come down and GLaDOS reveals herself, a script increases the draw distance to encompass the entire level. Apart from that everything is the same as Source, just better isolated, and no doubt a lot of code has been refactored and rewritten. The netcode is the same. The physics engine is new (replaces Havok). The UI code is new (replaces ScaleForm), the material system is updated. Multithreading has been improved. The render pipeline can be replaced. Hammer can use the subsystems directly for WYSIWYG editing, etc. And the reason why CS:GO on Source2 doesn't make sense like Ido said; To port CS:GO to Source2 would involve either porting the current CS:GO DX9 render pipeline into Source2, or make a new BSP capable renderer for Source2 (maybe with DX11/Vulkan support) but that would require rebuilding every single map and material in the process. It makes more sense to pick parts of S2 for integration into the CS:GO branch, which is in fact something they are doing. Similarly Source2 is getting improvements from CS:GO, like the netcode improvements.

Depending on how the engine is written, you can use one component without needing the whole thing.
Tanner Mckenney (1 year ago)
To answer your question about game engines: Source and Source 2 are both written in C++. From what I've seen, Source 2 is just a gigantic refactoring of the original Source engine. Most multi-purpose game engines out there are built with *some* sort of modular architecture. That being said, I think it's safe to assume that you can forward port features from the original Source engine into Source 2 provided you "rewire" it to work within the newer engine. As for back-porting features from Source 2 into Original Source, well, i'm not too sure. It depends on what they changed, added, or removed between the two. It's usually easier to forward-port features than back-port them. If you want to get *really* nitty-gritty, considering again that they're both written in C++, it wouldn't take much to half-ass glue the two chunks of code together. Stability, though, is another question entirely. Bottom line: Basically, it depends on the feature and how good the programmer (or team) is at porting features between code bases. Hope that helps, I'm sure someone more experienced with the two code bases can give more accurate details.

MibMoot (1 year ago)
Switching Engines is no easy task. If you, say, switch from Unity to Unreal... you'll have to rewrite. But from Source to Source 2 it might not require a rewrite, because of their similarities. From what I know they're both based on C++ too (source 1 is atleast) so unless they make major changes, compiling the games would work fine.
neoKushan (1 year ago)
Well designed software can indeed share components from other bits of software. It's not quite the same as "Two different game engines swapping bits out", it's more like how two different cars from the same manufacturer are ultimately made up of individual components that could be shared across several models. The engine in those cars might differ, but the nuts and bolts used to assemble it will be the same. The seats are probably easy to interchange and so on. A lot of people are saying that a game engine is split into individual components like Display, Audio, input, etc. but the reality is that they're split into a lot more components than that and abstractions are used on top of those areas to keep things sane. Imagine UI - it's going to rely on display, audio and input to work properly, but the display engine (for example) isn't going to want to care if the bits its been given to draw on the screen came from a UI component or an ingame scene or whatever - it's going to just want to be given a list of display data it understands so it can process it. So imagine then you have a UI system that spits out 3DContentForDisplayRender to draw - well, if someone has a better/newer UI subsystem, as long as it ultimately spits out that same 3DContentForDisplayRender then the underlying systems generally won't notice.

Game engines only really change lighting and physics. Actual game play functionality is programmed around the engine.
cakebrin3r (1 year ago)
eeeeeeeh its more physics are different. Gameplay functionality is the actual game itself which is what the developers make. so a fps and a platformer can have different gameplay but are bound by the same engine. Assets such as models and textures can be imported over super easy.

Most of my experience with game engines is through using the Unreal Engine and Unity. Most engines are made of a bunch of different parts that are all responsible for a separate aspect of the game (sound, rendering, interactivity, etc.). In the case of something like Unreal Engine 3 vs 4, both are actually separate programs that do not share the same codebase. They might be similar, or handle things in similar ways, but effectively they are only the same engine in that they are both named "Unreal Engine". In the case of something like Unity, its a little more complicated. To my knowledge, regardless of the differences between Unity version 4 and Unity version 5, they're still the same engine with the same parts just in different points in the development cycle. So newer versions of Unity have different rendering engines or different sound engines, but they all work off of the same code base so you can more easily port a game project to a newer version. It sounds like Source 2 is even weirder in its relationship to Source 1, but my interpretation is that it sounds closer to the Unity example? Because its an inhouse engine, they might have the separate parts (UI, scripting, rendering)of the complete game engines and they're compiling/packaging the games using parts of both Source 2 and Source 1. I have no idea how that works, but its possible I guess? I think the big thing to keep in mind is that like ido_valve hinted at, a new game engine will not automatically make anything about the game prettier or better necessarily. The reason why we move to newer and newer engines is so that we can take advantage of better and newer features. We can render more polygons, or the organization of the program is more intuitive, or the way texture rendering is handled is better. That's why Half Life: Source doesn't really look a whole lot different. Source had better physics, shaders and texture rendering, but without better art assets (textures, models), it still looks essentially the same.

EthanRDoesMC (1 year ago)
3:27 Source and Source 2 may be compatible together. If what I'm thinking is right, then Source 2 is a branch of the master Source branch. If this is true, then the two can talk to each other easily. For example, the Portal 2/LFD 1 and 2 branch can interact with the Source 2013 branch with 3 lines of code. It can also just as easily interact with HL2/Portal's source Engine Branch. It's how Garry's Mod works.
