ProX golf simulator software - source code!

World's first and only golf simulator 3D golf course rendering and game software source code available on the market for under $400!

All coding and tutorials by Martin Paul Gardiner

Electronics and software development engineer and founder of GSA Golf

Interested in designing your own golf simulator software?

The ProX golf simulator software took over 10 years to develop and is a great insight into 3D golf simulator graphic methods for developers.

Use the existing 19 golf courses or create any number of new golf courses.

Change or modify any functions or appearance to your liking. Once compiled, you can distribute the ProX executable programs under any name of your liking and completely free of any royalties or fees.

The ProX software source code is programmed in C and C++ using Visual Studio 2013.

The source code allows you to modify any of its functions and appearance in addition to interfacing to any club and ball tracking hardware that you have interface source code to.

Code includes:

Large 3D terrain modeling with real time rendering

Terrain texturing, shading, tree and object planting

3D modeling with real time rendering

Ball trajectory physics with real time rendering and collision detection

Fly with ball trajectory cameras and multiple ball trajectory tracing

3D moving sky domes and panorama backgrounds

Make a ball splash in the water using multiple thousand 3D particle systems

Gaming, game play, player statistics and sound playback.

Golf course designing and auto course generation.

plus much much more.

Click above for "Speed Trees" 3D tree and plant rendering

 

The water ripple effect is one of the more complex new features coming to ProX in the coming months requiring lighting, refraction and reflection calculations and bump map animation.

In contrast, the process I'm using for tree and plant animation is quite simple.

ProX II will feature a new clearer and more defined surface rendering technique

While ProX I used a single very large surface image that was stretched across the complete scene to render the ground surfaces which made transitions from one surface type to the other look quite fuzzy,

ProX II will be using individual texture image with very defined smooth cutouts for each surface type.

Other advantages to this method include very fast course load times and far less memory usage

ProX Graphics

ProX Swing statistics

The Swing Shot ball flight Statistics window shows your average shot trajectories for a particular club-type and period.

All shots a player makes on the simulator are recorded and stored in the database. This feature allows you to track your shot progress over periods and focus in on swing improvements.


Large Landscape Rendering

You can see and even travel to all the adjacent holes from the current hole. 

The new ProX high speed large landscape renderer not only renders the terrain of the adjacent holes but all objects (trees etc) of all the course holes as well.

In the standard version of the software there is just blank space next to the hole.


Cross Screen Animations

In ProX, birds and other flying objects fly across the sky.


Course generation

The above shown hole contains over 1000 trees and plants and was generated in 15 seconds

With the ProX Auto Course Generator you can create full 3d graphic golf course models from a simple course hole overview layout at the touch of a button!

The Create Course Hole procedure creates all surface textures, basic terrain including water ponds and bunkers, light maps and tree shades, water reflection models, 2d overviews and plants all trees, plants, tees, flag etc.

 

see AutoCourseGeneration for more details


ProX Features

 

Trajectory trace

Fly-with-ball feature allows you to fly with the ball and along the ball's trajectory in real-time. 

After your shot and you want to move to where the ball lies for the next shot, the GGS virtual 3D graphics camera will fly you along the ball's trajectory to get you there. As opposed to other systems where you have to wait for the new view to be calculated, the GGS system is so fast it seems instantaneous.

Distance and speed ball is traveling

during flight is shown in real time on screen together with launch data (optional).

Design your own golf courses

The GGS 3D graphics system allows you to integrate your own designed golf courses using a standard graphics tool (e.g. MS Paintbrush pro, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Micrografix Picture Publisher etc). The GGS auto course generator creates all surface texture maps, topographic height maps, light and shading maps, surface recognition, sky domes and object maps from a single layout image.  The level of detail and realism is only limited by your artistic abilities, imagination and time.

Interactive Tree Planting and Object Scaling.

The GGS auto course generator plants all trees and objects but you can also plant new and move/remove existing trees (or any other objects) directly on the course at any time. 

Ball image starts at the ball impact point on the screen in real time.

When you hit the golf ball into the screen, the screen will absorb it's energy and it will fall to the floor. It's image, however,  will continue on from the point of impact on the projection screen in a continuous smooth flow. And it is this aspect of the software - together with the field-of-view and perspective giving you the impression you are standing on the course - that makes the simulator so life-like and differentiates it from normal PC golf game software. You can aim at any target on the screen and if you hit an obstacle ( ie a tree branch) the ball will bounce off accordingly.

 

 

In analysis mode, pop-up windows - like the ones above -  show  the position of the ball on the clubface and all the relevant club and ball launch angles at the moment of impact.

 Ball Velocity/Carry Graph for all clubs

The GGS system allows you to see and adjust the ball carry for every club type and for every ball velocity.

 

The GGS club swing analysis functions record all swings and ball trajectory flight data. Of particular interest to club fitters, the data can be viewed in table form allowing you to compare performance characteristics and averages of swings and clubs. Data can be stored and retrieved in any one of 24 tables. Mouse right-clcking on the shot entry opens the trajectory analysis window and replays the shot. 

Each table can be retrieved with a table combo box and assigned a user definable name. Entries are made into the current table after every shot whereby individual entries can be deleted. 

New: Swing Tempo and Smash Factors are now also being recorded in the swing analysis tables.

 

Swing Statistics window. The Swing Shot ball flight Statistics window shows your average shot trajectories for a particular club-type and period. All shots a player makes on the simulator are recorded and stored in the database. This new feature allows you to track your shot progress over periods and focus in on swing improvements.

Sensor striking mat, Ball Tracking system , VLM and Club-Head verticals

 to measure:

club-head path and speed

club-face angle at ball impact 

club-head height at impact 

ball height above ground at impact

club-head attack angle 

ball path and speed 

ball vertical launch angle

 

"Trace mode" allows you to see the complete trajectory

Up to 36 multiple trajectory traces can be shown for comparison

With Multiple Traces on during game play all trajectories are visible from tee off to putting in the hole.

 Nearest Pin and Longest Drive contests

In addition to normal game play, Nearest Pin and Longest Drive contests can run in parallel.

Detailed ground surface texture

Sky/Cloud motion

Large Landscape Rendering

You can see and even travel to all the adjacent holes from the current hole.  The new ProX high speed large landscape renderer not only renders the terrain of the adjacent holes but all objects (trees etc) of all the course holes as well.

 

When putting,  the camera will smoothly zoom-in to the ball while rolling from the original camera angle at launch position.
