      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.

[/CODE]

Is what i get when i compile. Using VS studio 2010 following this [url="http://www.rastertek.com/dx11tut03.html"]http://www.rastertek.../dx11tut03.html[/url] tutorial. Finish putting all the code in and it just won't compile. I have the include directory included under Project Properties > VC++ Directories along with the library directories for BOTH x86 and x64. I've attached the compiler log, the CPP and the header file for the section of the project that is giving me an issue.
If i'm not mistaken, the issues i'm getting are because something isn't included correctly, or at all. I'm just not sure what needs included.

You are building 32bit application:
[i]1>------ Build started: Project: DX_Project, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------[/i]

However you include 64bit libraries:
[i]1> Searching C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x64\dxgi.lib:
1> Searching C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x64\d3d11.lib:
1> Searching C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x64\d3dx11.lib:
1> Searching C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x64\d3dx10.lib:[/i]

Remove 64 bit library paths from 32 bit project settings and it should be fine. Edited by Ripiz

Smart man. :P Thanks!
Now i just have this issue >___>

[CODE]
1>------ Build started: Project: DX_Project, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
1> D3dclass.cpp
1>D3dclass.cpp(118): error C2664: 'errno_t wcstombs_s(size_t *,char *,size_t,const wchar_t *,size_t)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'unsigned int *' to 'size_t *'
1> Types pointed to are unrelated; conversion requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
[/CODE]


and this is the line that is being referenced
[CODE]
error = wcstombs_s(&stringLength, m_videoCardDescription, 128, adapterDesc.Description, 128);
[/CODE]

Looking over the code, i don't see where the issue is coming from. "Can't convert from unsigned to size_t" the unsigned parameter is string length which is

[CODE]
unsigned int numModes, i, numerator, denominator, stringLength;
[/CODE]

videoCardDescription is declared in the header file

[CODE]
char m_videoCardDescription[128];
[/CODE]

and adapterDesc is

[CODE]
DXGI_ADAPTER_DESC adapterDesc;
[/CODE]

I'm just not sure what's wrong. I'm still looking at it so I may end up finding it and just updating this thread.

You have [i]unsigned int stringLength;[/i] but you need [i]size_t stringLength;[/i]

as Ripiz said, SIZE_T returns a unsigned interger. It like sizeof() operatator. So, if you're trying to return a size of a string then you'll need a length. Maybe you've already got it but I just threw it out there to help out a bit.

Well, I ended up looking back at Ripiz original post about the library issue and decided I would double check to be sure I got rid of them. And I didn't >__> I was building with a x64 but with both libraries included. I removed the x64 and just started building with Win32 and it worked first time. >_< User error I say. :P Thanks guys

You're welcome boss! That would make sense because my engine includes 64 bit library and for the 32 bit version includes the 32 bit library. :)
