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.

Dev-C++ [Linker error] undefined reference to ...

8 posts in this topic

I searched this site, finding, that many have similar problems, but could not find the solution to my particular problem, I wrote a little example to explain my problem: I have two Class-files (MyClass.cpp and MyClass.h) and a Test file (class_t.cpp) They look like this (Example files): MyClass.h:
#ifndef _MYCLASS_
#define _MYCLASS_

class MyClass
{
	private:
	
	public:
		void test();
};

#endif	//_MYCLASS_

MyClass.cpp:
#include "MyClass.h"
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void MyClass::test()
{
	cout << "Test succesful!" << endl;
}

 
class_t.cpp
  
#include "MyClass.h"
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main(){
	MyClass myInstance;
	myInstance.test();
	return 0;
}
When I now compile them with Dev-C++ 4.9.8.0 (MingW I guess, I did not change anything) it gives me the following error message: [Linker error] undefined reference to 'MyClass::test()' I can not remember that I have ever had that problem when I was using VisualC++. What did I do wrong? Thank you for your help, Ole [edited by - EnvinyataR on March 30, 2004 8:08:00 AM] [edited by - EnvinyataR on March 30, 2004 8:09:42 AM]

Yeah, you''ll want to include MyClass.h in MyClass.cpp the same way you do in main (quotes...).

ohh sorry, but that is just a typing error. Even with quotes it gives out the same linker error.

First of all, I think identifiers with leading underscores are reserved in some way, so you should change your macro names.

Do you have all .cpp files in your project? This is necessary for them to be linked together.


EDIT: And use int main(int argc, char* argv[]) - I've had problems with using int main() before.

Your problem must be somewhere else, for it works fine for me, with mingw (not dev-cpp, btw, just the command line compiler). Are you sure you''ve included all your files in your project?

Try to make a new project, and create new files, in which you then paste the same code. If it then still doesn''t work, then I don''t know it any more

I just compiled all that and it works under Dev C++ 4.9.8.7.

Make sure that you add ALL the files to the project and it should work. If it doesn''t, upgrade to the latest version and try it again.

Thanks Guys, what stupid little mistake. I was actually aware of that, but I must have forgotten to use a project. Well it runs fine now... Thank you again.
