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.

decltype template parameter

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I seem to having a little trouble with something that is seemingly simple.

I would like to get a typedef from my own traits class where the template is instantiated based on a member T::member.

It would be easier to just show an example of what I'm talking about

template <typename T> class someclass
{
public:
	// doesnt work
	typedef ns::some_traits<decltype(T::member)>::type type;
};

// works
typedef ns::some_traits<decltype(otherclass::member)>::type type;

To me this looks like I'm missing a typename somewhere in there but I've tried that in a number of variations.

Could it be a compiler bug (which I doubt)? I'm using the Visual C++ November 2012 CTP compiler.  If not what is the problem here?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply Rob, but that won't and doesn't work.

I've discovered after a little test that my problem lies elsewhere and will come back with a new problem.

 

I should probably mention that the member is actually a method, I'm trying to pass the operator( ) type as a template parameter and its a little closer to this:

 

<decltype(&T::operator( ))>

 

This actually worked in a test case but for some reason does not work with my actual traits class.. I'll figure it out..

 

 

 

EDIT: I ran this code through GCC and everything compiled and worked as expected, which only confirms my theory that this is a compiler bug. Really annoying..

 

 

EDIT2: Now I'm having some issues with GCC and const member functions.. *sigh*

If it's a method (member function), you may also need the "template" keyword, as in the following:

t::template f<int>(); // call a function template

extra-fun example:

typename t::template iterator<int>::value_type v;
