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.

New Script Binder

2 posts in this topic

Here is a WIP version of a script binder I put together in a rush. http://www.xl3d.com/angelscript/asSourceParser.zip It supports nested class inheritance, and automatic updates of your interfaces. Run the included project and check the generated markup.cpp for the generated include file. Its not really fully developed right now, but I find its a heck of a lot easier to get your stuff imported with it. With just a few paste operations, you can export whole classes as well as their base classes without any extra work. Give it a go, and let me know what you think. Read the readme.txt for a brief description. I think its pretty flexible, so please try it with your classes and let me know how it goes. Leave out constructors, destructors and operators for now. I haven't implemented those yet (any help on how to register them automatically would be appreciated). One question on the biggest problem I ran into however... How does one get around having multiple functions of the same name in a class being declared? Right now I am just commenting out multiple names when they occur. For ex: class test { void GetPoint( int &x, int &y ); void GetPoint( float&x, float &y ); } The way I am using righ tnow won't allow me to declare those procedures because it doesn't know which one to use.

For the overloaded functions you can use the macro asMETHODPR(class, method, parameters, returntype), e.g:

asMETHODPR(test,GetPoint,(int&x, int&y),void)


The constructors/destructors can be implemented with simple wrapper functions.

I know it is an early version, but I would like to upload it to my site, with a link to your page where readers can find the latest version. Is that ok with you?

Thats fine with me, do with it as you please for all I care. I'll post here when the newer version is updated. It has support for typedefs and enumerations. I can almost automate the OpenGL header now.
