      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.

AngelScript 1.8.0c (2004/07/19)

31 posts in this topic

I think you should CVS your builds so that you can actively update AngelScript. that way everyone will be more updated, and you WIP's would be easier to obtain, it should also save you the trouble of re-archiving your builds over and over again. and you should also install ViewCVS for managing code views.

Since your project is GPL'ed, it won't be very hard to apply for a sourceforge.net account. This offers CVS among other things. This will also give angelscript some additional exposure because it will be listed in the search.

If you have access to a dedicated server, you can also set up your own CVS. I have done it myself before and it isn't very hard.

I just uploaded version 1.8.0c with two more bugs fixed. The bugs were spotted by Lennart Denninger. Thanks man.

I'm sorry about the buggy release of 1.8.0, folks. I was in a hurry to release it before I got my hands full with other things to do. I didn't test it as thuroughly as I should have.

I'll take a look at sourceforge.net. Setting up my own CVS is probably too much for me right now.

Thanks for the tip, Gyrbo.

ViewCVS looks good. Can it be used directly with sourceforge projects?

Yes, it should be fairly easy to use it, we use CVS internally to manage our development process. and its easy to set up a CVS server on a site running linux/win or any OS for that matter, you can go to http://www.cvshome.org to get yourself the tools.

Use a CVS Server to maintain the code base and ViewCVS to manage changes. only pack up the stable builds as a seperate downloads. on windows i use the WinCVS/TortoiseCVS client in windows, or for the linux users <*ahem> - the command line :D

Try SourceForge.NET , i donmt know much about them but i get some really good stuff on it, and thats what AS is - really good stuff!!!

I personally like Subversion (http://subversion.tigris.org/) better than CVS. SourceForge doesn't support it though, which'd mean you'd need to provide a server.
