      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.

Angelscript on Raspberry Pi

131 posts in this topic

One thing I forgot to mention is that when I build the lib on the RPi, I need to set the "no-threads" flag, otherwise I get lots of undefined symbol errors. What are the pre-requisites for getting threading to work with the lib?

The gnuc compiler/CPU needs to provide support for atomic instructions, and in your case it must have proper support for Posix threads.

 

Currently the as_config.h defines AS_NO_ATOMIC. You should probably remove that, and in the makefile make sure to link with pthreads when building your application.

 

What are the undefined symbols?

Mmmm.... this is weird. I just rebuilt the library removind the "no-threads" flag to post the errors I was getting, and guess what? It builds fine... I´m sure I was getting undefined references to thread-related functions, and I´m sure those errors went away when I added the flag...

 

About AS_NO_ATOMIC... what´s exactly its function? What kind of atomic operations does AS expect to be supported and when should them be supported?

http://asarmjit.svn....asarmjit/trunk/  (edit: it seems this link doesn't work anymore. Perhaps it's possible to find the project on google? Or maybe quarnster has it somewhere else?)

It lives in https://github.com/quarnster/asarmjit nowadays, although it's untouched since I last worked on it so probably needs changes to work at all and I never got around to implementing a satisfying solution to the floating point operations, so none of those byte codes were ever implemented.

 

There's also my AOT compiler at https://github.com/quarnster/asaot which IIRC tested successfully on Android, but again has been untouched for a while so might need changes too.

 

Not entierly related to Angelscript, but I also have a small standalone fork of Mozilla's nanojit at https://github.com/quarnster/nanojit/tree/master/nanojit if you want to write your own platform independent jit. At the time of the fork the License was MPL1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1, but looks like the TOT version http://hg.mozilla.org/tamarin-redux/file/f5191c18b0e4/nanojit has been updated to MPL2.0. I don't recall exactly what the obligations under MPL1.1 are, but I know that MPL2.0 is not viral so that you can statically link in MPL2.0 code without having to make your whole program's source code available, nor do you need to make the object code (for re-linking) available. If you make any changes to the MPL2.0 licensed files themselves you have to make those source code changes available though.
