Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Quick question - I went back 10 pages and didn't see the Kinect thread so I'm hoping this is OK as it's own topic...
I recently moved and went from a naturally lit, open room with lamps to a basement game room with an overhead light (just a typical dome with two bulbs within it). Since then, the Kinect has been spotty in terms of recognition.
I've especially noticed a much grainier look to footage and pics which makes me wonder if maybe it's having a hard time with the lighting of the new space as it looks alot like my laptop webcam when it tries to boost lighting.
Does anyone have any experience with what works best? I'm thinking about maybe taking a bulb out of the overhead and putting a lamp somewhere in the room. Should I be working towards more light/less light/or just more balanced lighting? Does front/side/back lighting matter?
