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.

some stuff about robots

8 posts in this topic

Ive put a lot of thought into this area, and ive got this beginning self programming system going, but when it comes to making the sensors, you realize once youve got those, you dont really need to make them self program, you just code the animation yourself manually.
 
a) stereo cameras make the most awesome sensors for hardwired automonous death bots, and you can make them now if you are really that bloody crazy.  but then its a program in control.
 
b) telepathic control of robots.  this makes decent full body virtual reality possible (in a chair), and alot of other things.   its still in its infancy alot of places, maybe not everywhere, and is a big part of the future. will be big for movies, lots of things.  any invasive method i am completely against.
I always wondered how well you could spacially match a kinect up to an eeg, with a net. smile.png
 
Imagine the "robo bank robber" and thats what he used to do. hehehe
 
 
c) self programming robots have to most potential (only in the end) for all terrain, and carrying out an actual possibly somewhat interesting conversation, that other robots would be too predictable,  they are slightly more unpredictable. they are the smartest ones, out of them all.  and thats the one i want to make.  but the only interactivity it has is just treating you like a foe at this stage, no real communication happening, and it goes really slow.

When the new reputation system was established, I complained about giving points for idiotic things, like logging in.


I have to fully agree. That, getting/losing points for voting and the dumb linear scaling. Actually, the only thing the new reputation system does better is allowing you to tie a vote to a specific post. Everything else about the reputation system just feels like a downgrade.
Another good example in the same area is that phil<somenumber> guy who gives Spiro heart attacks. He had some 700+ reputation points when I last saw him and he *never* had any positive or constructive influence on this forum. He hadn't even learned to ask questions in all that time.

i just got a new idea!

 

What if you nanotube radioed your digital brain cells together, gets over the wiring problem, youd need enough units to run multiple tests at once.

rouncer:

 

We've tried to give you a chance here, and you've been given suggestions for posting more constructively on multiple occasions, but to be honest this topic is still nothing but largely incoherent rambling.

 

Your topics constantly devolve into arguments or simply trail off with no useful discussion ever taking place, and you're not even getting anything out of it yourself... you sometimes reply as if you don't even realise that the overwhelming majority of replies to your topics are simply complaining that you're still here or poking fun rather than actually trying to discuss anything with you.

 

We really make an effort to try to allow anyone who wants to participate to be a part of our community, but unfortunately in your case it's just not working out and we can't continue to have you disrupting our community indefinitely with no signs that you're even trying to participate constructively.

 

 

Sorry, but consider this your last chance -- any more of these pointless rambling topics will result in you being removed from our community permanently.  At this point I would normally give advice on how you can be more constructive, but it's already been given repeatedly -- look over some of those older posts if you would like to try.

 

 

Topic closed.

If this individual deserves a "Good" score, who doesn't? What is the score supposed to be used for?

You're right, those badges were set to inappropriate values -- I've adjusted them to be better suited to our current system.  They now display "learning" for members with 100-1000 reputation points, "good" for members with 1000-5000 points, and "excellent" for those with more than 5000 points.  Members with less than 100 points only have their score displayed with no additional label.

 

If you'd like to discuss the reputation system in more detail feel free to start a topic in the CS&I forum or send me a PM -- we're happy to listen to suggestions, or even if you'd just like to vent.
