      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.

  1. If I'm not mistaken, afxres.h is part of the MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes).
  2. Showing us your code will greatly help in resolving your issues.
  3. What language(s) do you wan't to develop in? 2D or 3D? Any other requirements of the engine?

  5. OpenGL

  6. Ehm, language?
  7. Looking at the source at Google Code, I found updates as soon as two days ago. So I'd say it's still alive.
  8. OpenGL

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GLSL#Versions   That's a list of which GLSL version was released with what version of OpenGL.   The numbers declared in the files, such as 150 and 330 is the first and second part of the GLSL version number without the period (.) if I'm not mistaken.   Use an as new version as you can.   Edit: http://renderingpipeline.com/2012/03/shader-model-and-glsl-versions/ Another list with thier respective version numbers.
  9. OpenGL

    GL_NORMALIZE is the slowest normal transformation, but i wouldn't say it's a problem.
  10. OpenGL

    I recommend GLFW (http://www.glfw.org/), It does pretty much the same things as GLUT, but is nicer to use in my opinion.
  11. OpenGL

    GLUT creates native windows, but for several platforms. And there isn't really any best. GLUT gives you cross-platform and might be a bit easier to use.
  12. OpenGL

    The  #version 150   goes in your GLSL file, not your C/C++.

If you accept a linux ncurses fishtank (shoud probably work under cygwin) [/quote] Could you please bang out a "hello world" sort of program that includes as many ncurses routine calls as you expect to use or think is a meaningful test, and send it to me or attach it to a post here on the board? I might be able to get ncurses through the Cygwin package manager, but I'm pretty sure I will need to completely build your program from scratch and I'd like to do a dry run on that before the judging time. [/quote] Here you go Try ncurses-test.c first. ncurses-test-with-refresh.c does a refresh when needed to make sure the output is shown, but this doen't seem to be needed some times.

I'm writing a java/lwjgl/slick-based terminal emulator thingie instead [/color]

  15. Sorry for my eehh.. triple post. But i solved the problem. I've been searching for a cause in the docs and on the net. Noone seemed to have a similiar problem. That's probably because it wasn't really related to boost::property_tree. I didn't initialize (new) the class in which i use ptree. Another class has a private member which is a pointer to an instance of this class. An as i didn't "new" it, there were errors with uninitialized memory.
