Hi all, 

I decided to take up again this book, I know it's from 2004 and the code it's a bit dated.

I already searched on the internet if exist a patched version of the game core, especially the Graphics Core, but I haven't find anything useful,  so I want to ask if someone has the patched code or know where can I get it becouse the official website of the author is down.

 

Sorry for my bad English and thanks in advance.

I have this book also and am currently going through it, the code uses DirectX 9 which is still viable, what are you wanting to patch it to? I would just load it up in VS 2012 or something similar and see what falls over and make those changes, then you can look at optimizing it for C++ 11 if you want. I think it should still run as is though. The official website is Cengage http://www.cengagebrain.com/shop/ISBN/9781592003150?cid=APL1
