      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.

I may retract that statement. There are a few things I was going to add that never made the cut.

Changes I have made:
Reloading now only reloads the currect selected sex instead of resetting both. -Added to project

Changes I plan to make:
Save as bmp and create Allegro safe bitmap. 255,0,255 background.
Change colors via a pallete for each option.

Updated 1/18/2011
Added:
Combined the reloading either one or both Male and Female options to default into the same program.
Now when you click Save or Reload you can see that it has been clicked.
When dragging the mouse over options the last option is now correctly displayed in the preview window although this didn't affect the saved image.
A button to select if you want to reload both or just Male or Female options can now be selected.
Shrunk the size of the rar download by 3kb and the Jar file by a 3kb. Not a big change but a change non the less despite having added graphics.

No character options added or removed.

Just looking for feedback. No changes to announce.

I have been moving across the US and haven't had time to add any features.

Your Java is outdated and requires 7u2 to use. Please visit the oracle site [url="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index-jsp-138363.html#javasejdk"]http://www.oracle.co....html#javasejdk[/url] for version 7u2. Also the path to the index.html file requires there be no spaces. IE c:/Users/SomeName/Desktop/SprCre is acceptable. Any spaces and saving will return an error.

-Changed the way the buttons and title splash looks like
-reorganized the layout to accommodate more features or different options Edited by 0Circle0

Lots of things are going to be added here soon. Changing the skin colors hue, saturation and brightness in order to create more than just human characters. Requiring me to edit nearly a thousand images to get it to work properly and look good. I expect to be done with this within 2 weeks. Hopefully less depending on how much work it requires.

Fixed an error I created in the reload button. It should now reload the original skin color when the reset buttons are pressed.

I also added Purple and Orange to the skin color group.

Changed the layout a bit as well as how the buttons look.
Now use timers to control the animation preview window.
If the "Saved" folder does not exist the folder will be created instead of not saving.
Loading of images is done when you need them rather than all at once on program start.
removed color buttons for each female and male and instead now selecting a color only changes the current sex.

Added 6 new Cloaks for male and female with 6 color variations each. Created an animated gif for the preview window in first post.

 

EDIT: Didn't plan on finishing the other 6 cloaks. Added another 6 for a total of 12 added cloaks. You can now choose from 14 different cloaks instead of just 2 :)
