ummm its the book from premier press written by ron penton. I had the book but not the cd. I emailed andre lamothe for the cd. Now im just asking if the code is still able to work on modern comilpilers, if so are there any quirks I should know about?


Its that the guy behind these terrible programming series, where every book, no matter if its about learning C++, "creating" MMOs, multiplayer in general, 3D graphics and whatever, it always begins with a lot of pages of "introduction" that does not tell you anything, then brief introduction to C++ (or other language, depending on book) that takes another 200 pages, then missing the point anyway, and end up completly useless?

Honestly, I wouldn't want these books for free. If I may, I suggest staying away from these series and finding author that actually wants to show people something valuable and teach them, instead of making money selling crap. Because mr La Mothe found a great business model in gamedev industry, he seems like he can reuse his books, creating new ones, endlessly.

PS. Maybe that book you mention is different, but I really haven't seen anything valuable from this publisher yet.
