      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.

Help with book code

15 posts in this topic

Hi, i'm studying directx with the book "Introduction To 3D Game Programming With DirectX 9" but the sample of the first chapter isn't compiling in Visual Studio C++ Express Edition, the compiler output show this error 

 

1>d3dUtility.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "long __stdcall d3d::WndProc(struct HWND__ *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)" (?WndProc@d3d@@YGJPAUHWND__@@IIJ@Z) referenced in function "bool __cdecl d3d::InitD3D(struct HINSTANCE__ *,int,int,bool,enum _D3DDEVTYPE,struct IDirect3DDevice9 * *)" (?InitD3D@d3d@@YA_NPAUHINSTANCE__@@HH_NW4_D3DDEVTYPE@@PAPAUIDirect3DDevice9@@@Z)

I don't know how to fix this and i think the book code is correct. Can anyone help me?

Make sure you've set your project up correctly. Double check the settings you've used, specifically for library linking, against the ones given to you by the book.

You're getting this error because the linker (which is invoked after the compiler) is unable to locate the library containing the Direct3D functions you're attempting to call. Edited by Indifferent

That's because you didn't define that function. You've declared it somewhere, but not defined it. As such the linker cannot find the definition for the function and is wondering what you're talking about.

Washu and Steve are right - when your d3dUtility object file is being linked to all the other functions that it references, there is a missing implementation to that d3d::WndProc function.  The error you showed is very clear - but the cause of the error could be a number of different things.  Did you get any compilation errors at all?  Are there other libraries that you need to compile first?  Please reference the instructions from the book very clearly and make sure you have followed them to the letter!

You still haven't shown the body of the d3d::MsgProc function - you have shown the declaration, but there is no implementation yet.  This is probably the issue you are facing!

You're trying to create 2 windows:
The first one using the function WindowProc which is both declared and defined.
The second one using the function WndProc which is only declared. Edited by TiagoCosta

I removed the d3d::WndProc and compiled without errors. Thanks to all that helped me and sorry for my worry english. biggrin.png

Glad you got it working, but you're going to have trouble in the future if you don't understand that writing this line in your CPP file:

[source]
wc.lpfnWndProc = (WNDPROC)d3d::WndProc;
[/source]

and this line in your header file:

[source]
  • LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(

  • HWND hwnd,

  • UINT msg,

  • WPARAM wParam,

  • LPARAM lParam);

  • [/source]
Is never going to work unless you also add these lines in your CPP file:

[source]
  • LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(

  • HWND hwnd,

  • UINT msg,

  • WPARAM wParam,

  • LPARAM lParam)

  • {

  • return 0;

  • }

  • [/source]
Please see this website for more information about what a WndProc is and why you need it for a Windows game:
