      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. 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.

Lesson06(java)

1 post in this topic

Ok so I found this... [url="http://www.java-gaming.org/index.php?topic=25000.0"]http://www.java-gami...p?topic=25000.0[/url]

and am on tutorial 6 in eclipse. I've copied the image files themselves into every single folder in my eclipse workspace (I'm posting here in desperation after trying everything I can think of and beating my head against the wall for really a very long time).

When I run my code it just instantly closes with the following error:

System.out.println(e);
}

}

public static void main(String argv[]){
Tutorial_06 tut = new Tutorial_06();
}
}
[/code]

I think the problem is with this line:

URL url = this.getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("nehe.bmp");

I've tried ("\nehe.bmp"), I've tried "C:\nehe.bmp", I've tried all sorts of other options, I've even tried using paint to make my own. Nothing has worked. Please save me. Edited by Caste

He Storm.

I faced with same issue. It was found that mentioned function reads file from source folder where your source.java file is located. I just put image to this folder and used this call: texture = TextureIO.newTexture(getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("nehe.png"), false, textureFileType);
