Yeah, there''s a ton of extra images in there. They aren''t used in the game, it just looks like LaMothe planned on making that sample bigger than he did. There''s an instruction screen in there, which tells about being able to hack into the outposts and other stuff. He just left this stuff out. The game is only a sample, after all. But it would be fun to try to modify the game and include all the stuff he left out.

Hi,
The whole point of the book was to teach DX & basic game programming. If you actually read through the book and learn the information, you will know how to make your own levels, a main menu screen, and many other things you can do in 2D. Give it a try. Relying on engines written by LaMothe is not a good practice to becoming a skilled programer.

But that''s just my advice. :-)

Have fun learning game programming and stick to it.

In his book, Andre Lamothe explain how his engine work. I think you can find info for the graphic stuff at the end of the chapter 8. And if u need help to know how it work, just take a look at the code of Outpost.
