      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Thank you jLeslie.

Sure it''s easy to you, but I worked my butt off trying to make it! Yes I''m in 7th, and yes I''m done with pre-alg. Just because we''re the same age and stuff but that doesn''t mean the same level.

Besides, programming isn''t my main priority either. Soccer tournaments just passed and that took up a whole weekend not counting practice all week. All summer I have to train for High School soccer. So, that doesn''t leave a whole lot of time for programming. Yes I''m moving up to 8th, but I have to get ready for the High School league now since I already play High Schoolers and want to get better. (My league age is 12-19)

I''ll progress at my pace, you progress at yours.

Not to put you down but...I am 13 and that program is VERY easy to make. I am learning game programming and started 3 months ago. NO OFFENSE!

Are you in an advanced math class also? I am in pre-algebra and in 7th grade.

Sorry, but, I see no point in posting that message if you weren''t trying to put Tiso down. It''s really rather mean to get down on newbies like that. Also, to everybody: Age matters not on this mb. Only skill level. I don''t see how that can be made more clear.

Do some of you people just get off by telling people there stuff is junk. Or by saying, "Well you suck and I am much better. When I was your age I was programming all sorts of good stuff. That program you made aint s***"
That isnt exactly what some of you were saying but it meant the same thing.
I am 21 now and attending NCSU for a degree in Computer Science....I didn''t start programming anything until my Freshman year 2 years ago when I had CSC114 which is C++ Programming and then CSC210 which is Advanced C++ programming (i.e pointers and polymorphism and that good junk)....
Then I wasn''t doing graphics until the beginning of ''99 when I got my own compiler and downloaded DirextX SDK......then I started working on games and the like about half way through last year......
Now I think I am very good and efficient in using C++ and pretty darn good in direct draw and making games......
I guess what I am trying to say is that every one learns at their own pace and at different ages.....C++ isn''t something you can learn overnite (or even over a few months, at least not all of it) especially when it comes to graphics and implementing them in games......so get off the poor guys back allright
And to those of you who say you learned *everything* about C++ and directX and god only knows what else in only a few months then I think we should all get on our knees and worship you...
all hail the super geniuses that stay at home and do nothing but program at the age of 13 instead of interacting with the outside world (like playing soccer);

Man, I can''t blieve some of you guys, you try to act mature by saying, "Oh, i''m in this and that and I''m so great", just shut up, like someone one said," If you don''t have anything nice to say don''t say anything". So what if it is simple, everyone has to start somewhere and some go slower at it so you just need to SHUT UP, and say good job, maybe give a few helpful pointers. Bye the way I''m new to this WB, are most of you I''ll programers because, I''m not. I''m really into doing game graphics and what such.

Good first program.

A few bugs i found is that your side finder doesnt work on "plain old triangel" mode

i entered 2 for base 3 for height and it spit out 3 for hypotneuase. It seems to always spit out the height for the hyp. the theorm for that is a(2) + b(2) = c(2) if you accidentaly messed that up. the (2) means squared.
also the area finder keeps giving me an area of 0.

your 45/45 triange gives be a base and height of 0 if i enter the hyp, same if i enter the base/height.

and your function for the 30/60/90 triangle is funny when i enter a base of 2 it says the base is 6584148 and the other 2 are 0.

the area of the circles always seems toi be 0. formula = r * r * pi

thats all the bugs i see at the moment. Please dont be offended by this list, most of the bugs are probally stuff like mistyping a variable or forgeting a sign in your math code.

keep working this could be a great tool for pre-alg people.

About those bugs. Did you back space the letter that sometimes appear on the line where you enter a number? That seems to throw off the equation sometimes.

About the "Plain old triangle," I''ve double checked the equation and everything seems to be in order, I even tried it myself, and I got 3 just like you did. What should the answer be? That could help me in determining the problem.

The 30/60/90 thing, I think it''s because you didn''t backspace the letter on the line. I''m not entirely sure, but thay could be it.

As for the others, I have no idea!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
About everyone who is defending me, thank you, but it''s okay really. If he wants to flame me, let him, I''m used to it. I deal with people like that everyday, sadly. *rolls eyes*

I thank everyone again who stuck up for me, it''s nice to know that we''re all still a part of the human race.

well buddy, I just want to say congratulations, because you have done what some people may never do, you finished a project. That commands respect, heck, I can''t wait to do the same thing months down the line with my own project (just kidding, not months, more like a year from now.) You say encouragement gives you the will to keep on going, well people like you, with finished projects and gleefull looks (ok ok, I can''t really see you, but I''m sure you''re happy ) makes me want to go on and finish my own, and to put myself in your shoes. Thanks for the inspiration, and don''t let anyone bring you down dude.

Hi!

I just wanted to say that (I think someone did that already before...) you really should keep these functions, I''m sure they''ll be useful to you in the future! (Why should you code the same algorithm twice?) ...Programmers are lazy!

Just go on like that! You''re on the best way to get a very good programmer! And continue playing Soccer! I know some people at GameDev who sit in front of the computer as long as possible and nearly NEVER talk to anyone...where''s the life, comrades?
Whenever I meet such a guy, I feel ashamed that I EVER wanted to get a programmer! That''s no life, if you ask me...everybody needs friends, and everybody should have fun! Ok, I''ll stop now, because that was not the point...

Yours,

Indeterminatus

not to brag or to put you down or anything, but I made pong and space invaders when I was 13. (I started programming when I was 13). This was all in mode13h with DJGPP. This isn''t to put you down, but just to tell you that age doesn''t matter that much.



hmmm....... 13h is a piece of cake, you know..

compfanatic: There was no reason to make such a remark. I''ve seen some of your questions and posts here, and most of them were pretty "juvenile" as well. I don''t care if you''re 2 years old and can program half-life by yourself, you don''t put someone else down for what they''ve done. I''m not saying that I''m a good programmer...heck I can program some games and do some 3d but I''m not the greatest programmer I can be, and until I reach that point (and I won''t) you won''t see me make fun of someone else''s hard work. It was probably Tiso''s greatest programming milestone. Well, I congratulate you Tiso! Keep going, man!

AND AGE DOESN''T MATTER!

moderator: Please close this post as I don''t think much is coming out of it except posts like mine.

I agree with Esap1, programming is advanced enough! Who needs advanced math!

Thank you everyone once again who stuck up for me. I think we''re starting to put compfanatic down as well. I don''t like it when it happens to me, and I believe it shouldn''t be tolerated. But enough is enough! Only good comments from here on out!

I think I''ve figured the bugs out. I think it''s because the numbers are to small. The program works it our perfectly with a larger number like 6, 8, ect. I can''t quite figure out why that is though. I''mk still exploring the dangers of C programming, so maybe I''ll figure it out later?

Any thoughts anybody?
