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. Ectara, it is not C++ because I am looked to the memory at pointer gived from GetArgAddress (when investigated an original error).. so there is 0xffffffffffffffff in memory prepared by AngelCode engine.   Also, I declared application function as FnTestUint64(asQWORD ui64b) and there is nothing misunderstandable for compiler.
  2. Dear Andreas and all,   1) This code will cause an error "Implicit conversion changed sign of value": uint64 ui64b = 4294967295; But this won't: uint64 ui64b = 4294967296; 2) If I declare a global application function like FnTestUint64(uint64 val) and pass ui64b variable to this function, then there are two different behaviours:   uint64 ui64b = 4294967295; FnTestUint64(ui64b); // C++ debugger will show incorrect value 0xffffffffffffffff uint64 ui64b = 4294967296; FnTestUint64(ui64b); // C++ debugger will show correct value 0x0000000100000000   0xffffffffffffffff is -1 in int64 and 18446744073709551615 in uint64.   It seems that compiler incorrectly converts 4294967295 to int as -1, then converts this -1 to int64, then converts this big -1 (represented as 0xffffffffffffffff) to uint64   Maybe it is a well-known bug? Is it possible to fix it? Thank you.
  3. Thank you, Andreas. I've got idea and solved my problems as you said extending CScriptBuilder functionality.
  4. saejox, thank you! you are opened my eyes, really)
  5. rip-off, thanks, i got idea, so will make my own preprocessing utility. Seems, that in the same way I can solve 3-4 questions.. But, hope AngelScript will be better with this functionality due avoiding to rewrite old C-sources in AS-syntax.
  6. I tried to add this JIT compiler to my project and got may errors with std::function in MSVC 9 in as_jit.cpp .. Could you say me what I am doing wrong?
  7. Hello, I have a few questions about possibility own built-in preprocessing to realize addition functionality. 1) I would like to add #define directive. How can I do this? 2) Is it possible to add some another preprocessor directives? 3) Is it possible to replace not-AS type to built-in type? For example from "unassigned int" to "uint". 4) Is it possible to re-declare arrays from AS-way to C-way. I mean using "int arr[5]" instead of "int[] arr(5)". Thank you in advance.
