Ok, is this bad boy going to be on the shelves Oct 18th like amazon says? Will it have tutorials on FBOs? VBOs? Shadowmapping? This is more for Dave and Kevin

Yes to all the above.

Btw, Kevin ended up not being involved with the book. It was me and 23 contributing authors.


he dropped out? why?

Mostly because I just didn't have time to ensure it was of high quality. It was decided that Dave would take it and use contributing authors so it would be a better book than if it was just us. I don't know how Dave feels about it, but I think book might not have been completed if we had tried to do it alone (just because of time). You would have seen a dramatic decrease in GameDev.net updates as well.

So, hope I didn't disappoint anyone. It's going to be a great book, though. Dave and the authors did a good job on it.

Well, from my point of view I think you made the right choice, if not I wouldnt have got a chance to work on it [wink]

Hooray! I've been looking forward to this one, hopefully it'll come in with more haste than those Intel Manuals (they probably ran out after Sneftel's tree-killing fest...)

Hmmm it't the 19th and no word of the book being out yet? I looked on Amazon not been released? Do I even waste my time going down to B&N to look...
