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.

C bindings

10 posts in this topic

The C bindings were last updated last year. It would be necessary to update them with the latest interface changes. It's a not difficult task but I currently have no time to spend on it.

I happen to know that another user is experimenting with integrating AngelScript in a Delphi application. He has agreed to share the updates that he does on the C interface, but I have no idea when he will be done with these changes.

[edit] added a missing not ;)

Take a look at the C interface from last year. You'll see that it follows the layout of angelscript.h. To update the C interface it's just a matter of continuing to use the same pattern and adding the missing functions and adjust the ones that have been modified.

Regards,
Andreas

So it's gruntwork? Okey-dokey. And who's this other user working on it or where can I see the updates, etc., etc. - I'd hate to write what's already been written.

I received the updated C interface. I haven't had time to test it myself, but at a quick glance it seems to be ok.

I've attached it as I received it. When I get some time I'll do some testing on it and create the project files for compiling it as a dll.

Okay, how am I supposed to compile it? (I'm using GCC)

Do I just go into the gnuc folder, run "make all SHARED=1", go through the dynamic linking in my code, and #include angelscript_c.h? Edited by Hellrazor236

The idea is that you'll compile the AngelScript library as a static library. Then compile the AngelScript C interface as a shared library, and link it with the AngelScript static library. The end result is that you'll have a self contained shared library that exposes the AngelScript C interface that the applications can use.

Unfortunately I do not have much experience with gcc so I can't give you details on how to write the makefile for a shared library.

If you can put together the makefile for the AngelScript C shared library I'll be happy to include it in the zip file for others to use as well.

So I keep angelscript_c.h out of the (C library's) compilation process, but #include it in my own project?

If so, I have a half-assed makefile for it - it doesn't offer anything fancy like the environment's compiler options, but it gets the job done.
