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.

  1. lcr still has the best deals, if these guys had 5megs of space then I would. this site is going to be a game hostine site (I will take most anyones in).
  2. nice :)
  3. so you think he is on the level?
  4. http://lcrhosting.com has anyone here heard of them, there offers make me wonder if they are a legit company.
  5. let us choose the frame rate
  6. I will host it, it is at http://www.freewebs.com/cpluspluscode/glpong.zip what is your name, I will include that.
  7. this works if(bypos<ypos) { return; } if(xpos < bxpos + 50 && ypos + 170 > bypos) { bspeed = -bspeed; buspeed = -buspeed; printf("\nboom\n"); }
  8. dont tell me it is messy, I know, I am going to read a few books on game design and such. and that doesnt work, I changed it to: if(xpos < bxpos + 50 && ypos + 170 > bypos) but it bounces if it is on or over it.
  9. there is bspeed ans buspeed, at before it draws it goes: bxpos +=bspeed; bypos +=buspeed; speed is always 6 and uspeed is 4-7, bspeed is the x speed, buspeed is the y's
  10. here is relevant code void pong::hit() { if(bypos < ypos + 50 && bypos + 170 > ypos) { bspeed = -bspeed; buspeed = -buspeed; } } //init stuff xpos=800; ypos=150; bxpos = 250; bypos = 300; bspeed = 6; buspeed = 0;
  11. wont collide
  12. if (bxpos>750 && bypos <= (ypos + 171) && bypos <=ypos)
  13. I need to detect colision of a ball and a paddle for a game of pong, I have tried sooo much and it wont work, here are the dementons: paddle: 50,170 ball: 52,52 xpos,ypos: the x and y position of the paddle bxpos,bypos: the x and y of the ball | |^ |y | | | | x-> -------------------- everything I do bounces off the very top and above the paddle, or it doesnt care if the paddle is there, it will bounce, anyonw know that the if statment should be?
  14. I will help, my e-mail is c_programmer@sbcglobal.net note: I am into graphics, but I still would like to help, I need to get back tot he basics anyway.
  15. this is what it looks like: x ------------------- | | y | | | | | |
