Mark Collins, Linux online game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with examining computing device books which are six years outdated is that, good, they're six years previous. this isn't a big challenge within the home windows global; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows know-how will remain round much longer than the carrier contracts mandate. That, notwithstanding, is nearly by no means the case with Linux, the place an important pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per month, if now not day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the required wisdom to get less than the hood and tinker with Linux will carry actual, so it is not like there is completely not anything to realize from a booklet like this if you are a complete newb. (Sorry, I despise that spelling, but when i take advantage of the proper one, Amazon filters it for being one letter off from a undeniable slang time period they do not appear to like. )
I am, in reality, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for reliable in each point of my lifestyles i will (I nonetheless retain a home windows field round for video games, and i've to exploit it at work), all these database and online game tasks i used to be engaged on should be Linux tasks now. So i began with what i'll get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux video game programming. First, allow me say that if you are searching for hands-on instructional stuff, this isn't the publication for you. Collins is extra attracted to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you must do anything, instead of what it truly is you must do. whereas this can be evidently a superb factor and ends up in programmers who comprehend extra of what they're on approximately, it really is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folk who're simply searching for shortcuts, or solutions to a particular challenge. the second one factor to be stated, then, is that online game layout itself is the main transportable a part of any online game undertaking. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra appropriate to Linux improvement than the other type (an whole bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), some of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level thoughts, are appropriate to online game designers who application for any platform. hence, i'll cross methods right here; criticize the e-book for not likely being approximately Linux particularly, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i cannot do one or the opposite. How precious you will find it's going to most likely depend upon how a lot analyzing you might have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you have performed much, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; in a different way, learn the whole lot. ***
