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.

Compile Errors -- WIP 4

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to compile WIP 4, but I get 4 initial errors about "as_builder.cpp:39 -- friend declaration requires class-key, ie: friend struct asCScriptEngine...and so on for the 3 others". So I change "friend asCScriptEngine" and the other 3 declarations below it to "friend class asCScriptEngine...etc..." and it no longer reports the errors. However, I then get 63 errors, 2 of which are "as_callfunc_dc.cpp:138 -- CallSTDCallFunctionQWord undeclared" and "as_callfunc_dc.cpp:140 -- CallSTDCallFunctionDWord undeclared". The rest of the errors pertain to assembly code, but how do I use the alternative C++ code instead of the assembly? BTW, I'm using mingw, but don't use Dev-C++ because it's buggy. Instead, I use MinGW Developer Studio.

You should remove the as_callfunc_dc.cpp from the build. That module is specific for the Dreamcast. You should also remove either the as_callfunc_cpp.cpp or the as_callfunc_x86.cpp from the build as they are duplicating functionality (just written in different languages). If possible use the as_callfunc_x86.cpp since I believe there is a problem with as_callfunc_cpp.cpp that can cause errors when returning objects.

I'm not sure but I think mingw can handle inline assembler. Just make sure the __GNUC__ flag is defined.

I will try compiling the library with mingw myself this weekend just to make sure.

Thanks for the help, I got rid of the dreamcast file and x86 then everything worked fine. You're probably right about x86 but I do not have nasm and do not currently wish to deal with it.
