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.

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.

AngelScript 1.9.2 WIP 1 (2004/09/26)

3 posts in this topic

Another work in progress has been released. Nothing new in terms of features, but I've managed to squeeze out another 10% in performance increase. There is still a little more I can do in terms if optimizations, but I think it will be at most another 10% improvement. To go beyond that I'll have to rethink the VM completely, which is something I'm not prepared to do right now. People have started asking for JIT compilation so this is something that I've started looking into. However I will allow my thoughts on it to mature a little before I even start experimenting with it. I don't want to just compile the entire code into machinecode as that would loose much of the control over the execution that you currently have. For something like that it would be better to simply compile a DLL out of the code. For version 1.9.2 I'll add constructors with parameters as well. After that I'll move on to 1.10.0 where I'll add native arrays (hopefully) and and improved interface to the script functions (also hopefully). Regards, Andreas

Are you compiling the DLL? Are you getting the following errors?


--------------------Configuration: angelscript dll - Win32 Release--------------------
Compiling...
dllmain.cpp
Linking...
LINK : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _asCreateScriptEngine@4
LINK : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _asGetLibraryVersion@0
LINK : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _asGetActiveContext@0
../../../lib/angelscript.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 3 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

angelscript.dll - 4 error(s), 0 warning(s)


These errors are because I forgot to change the project settings to update the symbol names. You should remove the @ and the number, e.g "_asCreateScriptEngine@4" -> "_asCreateScriptEngine".

You might also verify the option "Doesn't produce .LIB". I'm not sure if this actually changes anything, but it might.

Anyway, the .lib file is generated in the /projects/msvc6/dll/Release folder, not the /lib folder where the .dll is generated. I'm not sure why this is so.
