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.

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. I made a class for pixel perfect collision, but for it to work, i must send the entire object to it. How can i pass an entire object to a function. whati s the general name for objects, like integrals have int and so on. Or how can i send the specific part of the spritesheet to the function. Im using imageicon to draw the images on the board , adn all the movement and stuff is done with image icons. So how to i send objects ingonito or how i send parts of imageicon?
  2. I see. i found the error. Grammar mistake in the .png file name :D
  3. C:\Users\Marko\Desktop\java>java rtype.RType Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException         at javax.swing.ImageIcon.<init>(Unknown Source)         at rtype.Missile.<init>(Missile.java:21)         at rtype.Craft.fire(Craft.java:106)         at rtype.Craft.keyPressed(Craft.java:85)         at rtype.Board$TAdapter.keyPressed(Board.java:228)         at java.awt.Component.processKeyEvent(Unknown Source)         at javax.swing.JComponent.processKeyEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Component.processEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Container.processEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Component.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Container.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Component.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.KeyboardFocusManager.redispatchEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.DefaultKeyboardFocusManager.dispatchKeyEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.DefaultKeyboardFocusManager.preDispatchKeyEvent(Unknown Sour ce)         at java.awt.DefaultKeyboardFocusManager.typeAheadAssertions(Unknown Sour ce)         at java.awt.DefaultKeyboardFocusManager.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Component.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Container.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Window.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.Component.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventQueue.access$000(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventQueue$3.run(Unknown Source)         at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)         at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(Unknown Sour ce)         at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(Unknown Sour ce)         at java.awt.EventQueue$4.run(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventQueue$4.run(Unknown Source)         at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)         at java.security.ProtectionDomain$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(Unknown Sour ce)         at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForFilters(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForHierarchy(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)         at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(Unknown Source) I get this error when i pres space in my game. I had a major screwup, i accidentally deleted the orginal .java files, but i recreated them. But for somereason shooting stopped working. Each time when i press space i get this message in console.
  4. Can i do pixel perect collision with imageicon or do i need to use buffered image?
  5. Or do you have a better suggestion for getting the x and Y coords, cause manually getting em would be quite hard and my monster also moves around
  6. OK. i think i can use the polygon. is there a way to automatically get the X and Y coordinates for my shape or do i have to get em manually?
  7. so basiclly, the more precise hitbox i want the more sections i mustm ake
  8. Im using the standard JDK. and ima lasousing java swing. Im trying to accoplish thet i can shoot through the tenticles to hit the eye. Atm it jsut hit the rectangle edge that surrounds the creature. [sharedmedia=gallery:images:3637] Hitbox for this
  9. From the album Learing to make a game

  10. How to i create a hitbox for irregular objects.
  11. Solution to this problem wasnt in this code. It was in the drawing function that made the clitch. I entered the wrong number of frames there and it clitched out. And the oder problem was in the oder of lines. I had to re arrange thel ines and it worked.
  12. I realised how dumb i am and found my problem :D. So how to i delete this topic?
  13. public int getFrame(){                  if(aeg % 60 == 0){             if(frame == 0){                 beforeframe = frame;                 frame +=1;                 }         }         if(frame != 0){                     if(frame == 1){                 if(aeg % 30 == 0){                     if(beforeframe == 0){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame +=1;                         }                     if(beforeframe == 2){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame -=1;                         }                 }             }             else if(frame == 2){                 if(aeg % 30 == 0){                     if(beforeframe == 1){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame +=1;                         }                     if(beforeframe == 3){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame -=1;                         }                     }                 }             else if(frame == 3){                 if(aeg % 30 == 0){                     if(beforeframe == 2){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame +=1;                         }                     if(beforeframe == 4){                         beforeframe = frame;                         frame -=1;                         }                     }                 }             else if(frame == 4){                 if(aeg % 30 == 0){                     beforeframe = frame;                     frame -= 1;                     }                 }         }                  aeg += 1;         if(aeg == 61)             aeg = 0;                      return frame;     }   This is my frame selecter code, but it doesent seem to work right. This control eye blinking. speed is easy to adjust just change the values of time and its ok. But the problem is frame selection. It seem to jump over some frames and leave other frames out. and it also dissapears randomly. what could be the problem?
  14. Sending the attributes isnt a problem. i just want to animate the movement and i had an idea with the frame switching, but it had to be built in the object. Now i need to think up a differetn way to change frames.
  15. So, as i understand, all the painting must be done int that one function, but i can send all the attributes to it.
