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.

I had the same problem with Avast yesterday. Not sure in which thread it happened.

But I should probably switch to another antivirus anyway, Avast detected my Monogame project as a virus after I added an (empty) for-loop. biggrin.png

I don't see anything suspicious about the page itself, so my guess would be that it may have been triggered by an ad -- if anyone sees the a similar message it would really help us out if you can note any ads being displayed at the time so we can try to track down any that cause problems.

And another one: 75.102.9.195/aWThNpr3fgmGA.js?a13wxDLSo6XWPRJ5yVpes4nK=041800b3427cd16
For some reason I don't see any ads (even with disabled adblock), only a green "sponsor" area after the first post, so I can't tell you which ad causes it. sad.png

I only get this on page load and it does not always occur, but most of the threads I've accessed are old "out of date" ones. Does not seem to be a connection between what old thread it is. just randomly based on when I load the pages.

I too am getting this problems and it seems to be trying to access a site named ploskinis.com, which is the same ip as listed above. It appears to inject a javascript url to that domain but I see it only in the specific instance noted below.

 

For me it is only triggered when I search for a forum post and click from there. For example:

 

I clicked this article from the front page:

http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/technical/game-programming/anatomy-of-an-idle-game-a-starters-guide-to-angularjs-r3767

 

No warning. After searching the article through the google search in the top right I am taken to the exact same link but javascript has been inserted into the web page. Reloading the searched link will always trigger it. However, reloading the link not searched appears to never trigger it. 

 

Here is the link from the front page, no search:

http://oi57.tinypic.com/6tpseg.jpg

 

Here is the link from the search, with javascript inserted:

http://oi57.tinypic.com/2n71rg2.jpg

 

Probably worth noting, I ONLY saw the warning when I viewed the post in the exact same tab that I was searching in. If I copy and paste the URL to a new tab the javascript I noted above is indeed absent. I see it only when using the search function and date doesn't matter. I tried this one from 2014, and tried another article from 1999. 

 

Sorry for the large links, I thought there was a way to shorten them but I must have forgotten. I hope that helps! biggrin.png

 

Edit:

After testing the same idea of it being linked to the search I tried every article on the front page with the same results. I even tried it with this post and I can indeed confirm for me the insertion only occurs when using the search.
