Hi, I have bought some "Game Engine" books, but none of these teaches you the basics of a game engine (game loop, kernel etc). Is there any book that covers these type of things? I want a book similar to the Enginuity tutorials, but more comperhersive.

Well what exactly are you looking for? You say you want to know the basics such as how the kernal works, and enginuity explains that. Please explaing more in depth at what you are looking for.

That diagram isnt necessarily gospel. It is a good start ofcourse but the layout of an engine varies enourmously with the application of it.

I would just start simple and work your way up , designing your own.
