      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.

And after that pathetic display, you actually expect someone to help you ?
Pul-lease !
Now, NeHe has a rather good tutorial on the subject.
There are some others just as good but I forget their names just now.
Next time, post with some maturity.



I came, I saw, I got programmers block.

YodaTheCoder, several people have directed you to NeHe''s excellent tutorials. Why are you still posting the same texturemapping question over and over agian? Did you actually look at the tutorials at http://nehe.gamedev.net/ ?

I sense a great disturbance in Yoda''s coding ability.
May the NeHe be with you...

(sorry, couldn''t resist )

You must excuse my short request for assistance. I was just about to leave somewhere, and Had but a few seconds to type something..

Anyway, If yee all wish to know what I be trying to accomplish through all of my many posts is learn an easy way to slap my image of a floor onto some quads or something...

Somehow, due to that everyone is directing me to that neon helium site, I am under the impression that this is no easy thing to do...

Maybe its all of the win32 code that scares me, I don''t know, but I presently use glut (aah!) and openGL (duh...)..

The previous posts that I have made about the camera and so on are solved , I did those myself. Just to let you know =)

Anyway, I guess I can check out nehe (again)... bah! Thanks to those who decide NOT to criticise the newbie =)

By the way, if know you must, wise ogl''er, reflects my skill in C/C++ my name does...

May the schwartz be with you (from SpaceBalls)

The OpenGL calls themselves are independent of what windowing API you use. If you don''t understand the Win32 setup stuff (which isn''t really that complicated anyway), just ignore that part. I would assume it''s the loading of a texture into an array, uploading the texture from this array to OpenGL and then using this texture on a quad or tri that you''re interested in. That stuff is exactly the same whether you use Win32, Qt, Glut or (God forbid) MFC.

I didn''t know little green Jedi could program C/C++. But then, despite being a professional C++ programmer with 13 years of experience, I still learn new things about the language every now and then...

check out one of my articles on www.sagamedev.co.za in the acticles section.... if you wanna program your own texture mapping procedure instead of using an API.

"I would assume it''s the loading of a texture into an array, uploading the texture from this array to OpenGL and then using this texture on a quad or tri that you''re interested in. That stuff is exactly the same whether you use Win32, Qt, Glut or (God forbid) MFC."

I''m using Glut for now, just to be on the safe side.. Eventually *gulp* win32 comes.... I know a wee bit from C++, and have only been programming in C++ for about, oh, 3-4 years now. It''s C that I use for openGL =). Ive got a lot more experience with it..

Anyway, yes, in response to the above quote, that IS what I am trying to learn. I''m usually short on time, expecially now, so I don''t have too much time to post anything (especially a desperatre cry for help)... Anyway, again I think yee all, and I shall continue my search for a simple tutorial..

I have found alot, some of them to my liking, yet all decide to jump into win32 code, or MFC (yuck!).

anyway, gtg!!
