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.

Gmail doesn't stay logged in

3 posts in this topic

Perhaps it's something on my end, but my profile doesn't seem to want to stay logged in when I use the gmail authentication. I often log in from my home computer, my work computer or my phone. Is there some requirement that disallows other devices from using the same methods? Perhaps an IP log or something?

I'm not too sure how your [our?] back end logic functions. If someone with clearance happens to know, would you mind enlightening me or perhaps teaching me how to avoid logging back in on each device (not that I mind the small boost in my rep. value).

You don't actually have to re-login to get that - just visiting the site while still logged in is enough.

Adding to what swiftcoder said, you get that simply for visiting daily even if you're already logged in, but you shouldn't earn more than 1 point per day even if you log in multiple times.


As to your actual question, I'm not aware of any immediate problems, but perhaps we can try to diagnose it with some further information:[list]
[*]Do [i]any[/i] of your devices stay logged in, or do they all have the problem?
[*]Does the problem happen all the time (are you logged in on a second visit from the same device?), or does logging into a different device log out the original device.
[*]What phone are you using, and are you using it's provided browser or a different option?
[*]What browsers are you using on your desktop systems? Do you have any unusual settings or plugins?
[/list]

[*]Once the window has been closed that device require re-authentication. As long as the original window stays opened (irregardless of tab closures) I remain logged in [on that device].
[*]I've remained logged in on my phone after logging in on with my work PC (tested as I write this). So, simultaneous visits are functional and don't 'boot' the other device.
[*]Phone: LG Optimus V (Droid) and I use the provided browser - no hacks or alterations.
[*]PC Browsers: Chrome (I rather despise I.E.) and I haven't changed the settings (nor has my system admin @ work) and my browsers 'remember' authentication for other forums - though, this is the only forum I use Google as the authentication method. The only extra extension I have installed is the [b]RealPlayer HTML5 Video Downloader Extension[/b] (common to all desktops).
