By Rahul Upase | technorahul

BEGINNINGS OF GAMING INDUSTRY

The video game industry is also known as the interactive entertainment industry and represents economic sector which includes the development, marketing, and sale of video games. This is one of fastest growing industries in the world that offers an increasing number of jobs and generates all higher profits. According to Patrik Franc in the work modern video game industry, from 2005 to 2008 in the United States, the annual growth rate in the area of software intended for the party was 10%, while the growth rate of the overall economy was something less than 2%. In this field, today employs over 120,000 people in the United States. 1 Since the 1970s when it began to develop to this day, the gaming industry has gone the way of fun activities for a narrow circle of people to the mainstream, ie. to activities that practiced by almost all.

Previous studies related to the gaming industry

About 10 years ago things were in the field of gaming industry started to significantly change primarily due to the development of Internet technologies. All those who have studied making video games get the opportunity to work and distribute its games digitally as much reduce costs and give space for a whole range of new creative interventions that are the rapid development of the industry. With the advent of the Apple iPhone in a way stabilized the market for games mobile devices, and the emergence of applications such as Unity, GameMaker and Twinea enabled and making games and those who do not understand the coding and greatly shorten the time required for making simple games. All this has resulted in radical changes in the production and distribution games. For example, the production of consoles has greatly progressed so every year manufacturers are bringing news about different types of upgrades that not only changing the way in which the games are played but also the manner in which they are conceived and operate in certain social habits and customs. All the more attention is given to gaming and in scientific circles, that is, trying to analyze. Cultural and sociological aspects of this phenomenon and find answers that could improve the development of the area.

So far, in the context of video games often talked about the negative impact they have on the players (Dependency, social withdrawal, encourage aggressive and violent behavior), but in the last while more attention is given to the understanding of the positive impacts that gaming has to social everyday life, stressing the importance of regular mapping gaming trends, ie. all those socio-demographic characteristics of gamers and gamer that could point out the positive and negative effects of the socio-cultural context.

Video games have become an indispensable part of modern culture, but also the industry in which they operate different profiles of artists and innovators who meet the increasingly complex demands and needs of gamers tend to respond in a way that includes some of the greatest technological achievements of today and skills that integrate different areas of human activity. In this industry, therefore, important to the well to listen to the market needs and meet those whom they intended these products and services. For this purpose, carried out an increasing number of studies that seek to enlightening and get acquainted with the participants and the gaming industry. For this reason, changing the methods and research in this area and the dominant theme of which is written in scientific papers.

Although still considerable attention is given to the negative the effects of gaming, more and more papers dealing with the positive impact and the ways in which the industry improves the situation in the society. Also, the number of works dealing with the function Marketing in the gaming industry.

Factors that encourage the development of gaming industry

Technology behind PC games

 

The main factors that have spurred the development of the gaming industry are related to development computer technology and the Internet, but the development of individual branches of the gaming industry can connect with certain social factors, such as.

The development of free Internet video games sometimes associated with unemployment and excess of free time. In the 90s of the last century, only one thing limiting any potential that is had the gaming industry – is still underdeveloped technology. Addictive games on electronic and computing devices kept them as complex as far as the devices to able to handle it. No 90-E are also the period when the situation in this area begins serious change as devices become more convenient, faster and more efficient. The development of processors (CPU) and graphics chip (GPU) paved the way for the development of 3D graphics, as well as programs and systems based graphical user interface. 3D environment allowed the developers series new possibilities of expression of ideas and virtual worlds. It has also encouraged the development of new genres, some of which are extremely popular today, for example, role-playing game (RPG) shooters, 3D platformer, fighting games, racing and so on. If we take into account today’s popularity Game Pokemon Go, it is interesting to note that the 90-ies the best-selling game was Pokémon Red / Blue with over 30 million copies sold.  With the invention of CDs, the storage and distribution of video games become much easier (Nintendo 64, released in 1996 was the last console that is used cassette).

The beginning of the 21st century in this industry is characterized by digital distribution and development Internet technologies. Internet gaming community has led to a whole new level by enabling players to play together or against each other which has greatly influenced the design of the games but also console. Digital distribution has enabled small and independent producers successfully business which also enriches the gaming industry.

At the time, a popular station and a process called modding (Eng.), Ie, modifying the code games (Fixing bugs, redesign, etc.). Thanks to the Internet, such as on the procedures gamers could mutually faster and easier to consult.

The last two years we have witnessed a new revolution in the field of gaming which includes primarily the implementation of VR (virtual reality) concept in video games, as well as all available technology and equipment that allows users to make a completely new way to experience worlds favorite games. Interest in VR video games is growing fast, according to some estimated revenue of this kind of video games in 2020 at the global level would be able to amount to 22.9 billion dollars.

Origin of PC Games

By Rahul Upase | technorahul

HISTORY OF VIDEO GAMES

What are video games? In order to talk about video games, you should first define what games are. According to various definitions and dictionaries, games are kind of activities, which are defined according to certain rules, and playing the game can be with different intent. The intention may be fun, competition, carelessness, distraction, relaxation, learning …

Video games are basically games, which in most cases are used as input the user’s actions, then these actions and the environment is processed by a computer, and the result of processing through video signal delivered to the user back to the video device. Because displaying the results of processing over video devices, called video games. A little simpler definition of video games (which use some dictionaries) would be activity, dealing with manipulation of images that display video device.

DEVELOPMENT OF VIDEO GAMES

Computer Games

Video games are made essentially extremely logical, albeit somewhat and (not) serious. The first video game, which technically is not a video game, came from the need for simulation and forecasting of serious events, but no real consequence. These are the predictions path rocket and try their knockdown. Rockets appeared on the radar, and the user has to try to break them down. It is a video game cathode ray amusement device. The game consisted of a computer which weighed about a ton and the display, which consisted of 12 lamps. By moving the handle, the user is supposed to provide and that moves the light and try to negotiate a different light, his second light ” fled ”.

Since the game is played by strokes, and so refreshed and screen, it was not easy to hit the enemy’s light. This game demonstrates the importance of quantity information that was necessary in order for the user to respond. Most games of this period were pulling games, which had unlimited time between moves. Similar games were Tic-Tac-Toe and Chess.

FIRST VIDEO GAME

First of all video games, was the Tennis for Two. This “game” is actually played on an oscilloscope. Oscilloscope, phenomenal condition at that time (1958) had a very useful elements for the purpose of video games: a basic set of controls with which the user can change the parameters of the basic unit for displaying the results on the basis of parameters that the user has entered. Due to the high prices of computers at that time, as well as devices that are able to display video signal in “real time”, the development of hardware and software is mainly the preserve of large universities and the army, which had the resources to provide such devices, as well as brains would be dealt with. A popular trend in universities were algorithmic tasks that dealt with issues of artificial intelligence and solving mathematical problems, which required a video presentation of their solutions. This need for a presentation video solutions has led to increased development of video devices. Video devices are getting better, with higher resolution and that they are able to demonstrate a higher number of dots on the screen, which began to create the need for mapping the screen. Organizing points, their grouping, and their behavior is being handled the interesting problem for Steve Russel’s. It was in 1961 managed to make a model of the behavior of certain points, and the ability of users to anticipate and intercept presented in the form of puzzles. The user was a group of dots, which aimed to fire a missile (also a group of dots, which occurs first), and attempts to topple the alien ship (projectile affects a third group of points). It is the game Spacewar. Continue reading

Computer Software

By Rahul Upase | technorahul

TERM OF THE SOFTWARE

Don’t worry! Want to know about Computer software? Below points will give you the information you are looking. Please continue.

Two basic types of software are:

System software – programs that are used to directly manage the physical work computers or hardware. This software allows a user interaction software with hardware. The modern name for the system software is the operating system. Some theorists believe Informatics compiler and other tools for software development work of the system software.

User software – programs designed to end users computer system. And these are the programs with which users of the processed data.

The execution of software or software by the user computer system today usually involves loading a user’s software and data from the hard disk, interactive data processing, and storage of data on the hard drive. In the past, rather than the hard drive used magnetic tapes or some other type of permanent memory.

The computer during execution software monitors the pre-determined set of commands to allow the user to analyze data in an appropriate manner.

OPERATING SYSTEM – DEFINITION AND FUNCTIONS

Operating system (hereinafter OS) combines disparate parts of your computer into a harmonious whole and hides from the user details of how these parts that are not essential to the use of computers.

OS works as follows:

Manages programs, data, and parts of which are comprised computer (processor, controller, working memory), with the aim that they should be used as expedient
Provides accessible working environment for the end-user computer
In general terms, the operating system can be defined as a set of programs that manage computer system resources and provides the interface to the user.

The first function of the OS is a computer resource management (resource management). The term resource we mean all that is needed to operate the program. Resources can be hardware (processor, memory, I / O devices) and software (programs, data files). The task OS that takes into account the resources of computers

to meet the needs of the program, to monitor the program uses what resources etc.
In short, the OS is a collection of system programs that mediate between computer users PC hardware and the goal is to:

Executes user programs and facilitates the resolution of user problems
Use of computer system do more suitable for users
Enable more efficient utilization of computer hardware
OS consists of several relatively independent entities. Each brand has its own computer operating systems, it is difficult to make the general structure of OS. A hierarchical model of OS is composed of levels.

The hierarchical model has the following meaning:

the observed level OS can request service only from its lower

level, and not from higher. The lowest layer is known as the core of the OS (kernel).

Due to the size of OS relations and working memory, most of the OS does not fit in RAM. Therefore, the memory still is only the most important parts of the OS, so-called resident parts, which activate and execute user programs, allocated memory, and files and perform I / O operations.

Resident part of the OS must support mechanism stops because it’s based on the multi-operation.  Part of the OS, which must always be in memory usually is referred to as the core or kernel. Functions that are used by all levels must be placed in the core of the OS. Other parts are inserted into memory when needed and expelled when no longer needed. Continue reading
