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.

More with Function Overloading

4 posts in this topic

Beta2 seems to be working fine, except that I'm having one problem. I noticed this in beta1, but never tried it before that. Suppose in a script I have three functions: catch(float) catch(double) catch(int) I can call the functions by doing 'catch(10.0)' or 'catch(10.0f),' but when using 'catch(10)' the compiler will only match 10 with an unsigned int (using 'catch(int(10))' works though). Building... Compiling function 'main' in "scripts\main.script" Error : (6, 1) Multiple matching functions to 'catch(const uint)' void catch(float) void catch(double) void catch(int) Completed. (errors: 1, warnings: 0) If I add a fourth function that takes an unsigned int parameter then this problem goes away, but it seems that 10 should match as an integer if that is the only choice.

You are correct. A constant uint, should be implicitly converted to int, and normally it does. I''ll verify what''s wrong with the code. It will probably be working for the next beta.

Having some more problems with overloaded functions (beta4):
void CreateBox(bstr name, float x, float y, float z)
{ CreateBox(name, x, y, z, 25.0f, 25.0f, 25.0f); }

void CreateBox(bstr name, float x, float y, float z, float dx, float dy, float dz)
{}

Building...
Parsing: "scripts\config.script"
Error : (146, 6) Name conflict. ''CreateBox'' is a function.
Compiling function ''CreateBox'' in "scripts\config.script"
Error : (144, 3) No matching functions to ''CreateBox(bstr&float&float&float&const floatconst floatconst float)''
Completed. (errors: 2, warnings: 0)

I guess it is happening whenever I try to declare an overloaded function inside of a script file. I was just reading the manual and it said that functions can''t share the same name with other functions. So does this mean that the only overloading allowed is through the asIScriptEngine''s register methods?

Yes, scripted functions currently don''t allow function overloading. I simply haven''t had the time to implement it yet.
