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.

RegisterScriptArray fails

7 posts in this topic

i already posted on this on stackoverflow, but didn't get any reply there.

 

Here my original text:

i am trying to get an angelscript test running, however, calling RegisterScriptArray() fails

System function (1, 39) : ERR : Expected '<end of file>'
(0, 0) : ERR : Failed in call to function 'RegisterObjectBehaviour' with 'array' and 'array<T>@ f(int&in type, int&in list) {repeat T}' (Code: -10)

the code is:

engine = asCreateScriptEngine(ANGELSCRIPT_VERSION);

// message callback
int r = engine->SetMessageCallback(asFUNCTION(as_messageCallback), 0, asCALL_CDECL); assert( r >= 0 );

RegisterStdString(engine);
RegisterScriptArray(engine, false);

r = engine->RegisterGlobalFunction("void print(const string &in)", asFUNCTION(as_print), asCALL_CDECL); assert( r >= 0 );

What should i do? If i comment out the call it works, but thats obviously not what i want to archieve as i want arrays

So yeah, maybe i get an answer here. Maybe its actually a bug, i don't know

It would appear that you have a mismatching version of AngelScript and the add-on. 

 

What version of AngelScript are you using?

 

Remove any previous versions of angelscript that you have and do a fresh compilation of both the library and your application.

i got myself the latest version from AUR (Arch Linux User Repository) which is 2.28.2-1, the plugins are self compiled, from 2.28.2. Compiling 2.28.2 core myself now, we'll see if that fixes it

 

EDIT:

 

So, now neither string registration nor array work. i get this error for string:

System function (1, 9) : ERR  : Expected '{'                                                                                                                                                   
System function (1, 9) : ERR  : Instead found '<end of file>'
 (0, 0) : ERR  : Failed in call to function 'RegisterObjectBehaviour' with 'string' and 'void f()' (Code: -10)
angelscript-standalone: scriptstdstring.cpp:553: void RegisterStdString_Native(asIScriptEngine*): Assertion `r >= 0' failed.

And this one for array:

 (0, 0) : ERR  : Failed in call to function 'RegisterObjectBehaviour' with 'array' and 'bool f(int&in, bool&out)' (Code: -7)
angelscript-standalone: scriptarray.cpp:254: void RegisterScriptArray_Native(asIScriptEngine*): Assertion `r >= 0' failed.

The add-ons and the library are definitely not using the same values for the asEBehaviours enum. Either you have a different version of angelscript.h somewhere in the system that the add-ons include, or you haven't done a clean build of your code so that the linker is still using the old .o files.

 

 

I don't know who maintains the Arch Linux User Repository and I can't vouch for the quality (though I doubt there is in anything wrong with it). You may also try getting the latest SDK from the official site instead. Or if you will, get the latest WIP version from the SVN

 

I recommend the latest WIP, since it is what I'll release in a few days. I'm just updating the documentation with the new enhancements.

You simply compile the source code for the add-ons together with the rest of your application. :)
