Implementing Touch and Sensors for Windows* 8 Desktop Games: Confetti Interactive’s experiences developing "Blackfoot Blade"

The implementation for touch and sensors is new for many PC game vendors. Blackfoot Blade from Confetti Interactive* is a 3rd person helicopter game that takes advantage of the touch and sensor capabilities of Ultrabook™ PCs. This case study shares some interesting findings for what worked and didn’t work.

  • Sample Application: Using SIMD Instructions in Windows* 8 Store Apps

    Abstract

    SIMD instruction sets can be used to boost performance in Windows* 8 Store applications. This document focuses on how to create a SIMD library that can be consumed by any Windows 8 Store application programmed in any supported language. This paper shows how to begin making a SIMD library programmed in C++/CX, and three similar applications that use libraries written in C++/CX and XAML, C# and XAML, as well as JavaScript* and HTML5. The SIMD library will aid in speeding up the applications.
