Mark Collins, Linux video game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with studying computing device books which are six years previous is that, good, they are six years previous. this isn't an incredible challenge within the home windows international; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows know-how will remain round much longer than the provider contracts mandate. That, besides the fact that, is sort of by no means the case with Linux, the place a major pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per month, if no longer day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the required wisdom to get below the hood and tinker with Linux will carry real, so it isn't like there is completely not anything to realize from a e-book like this in case you are a complete newb. (Sorry, I despise that spelling, but when i take advantage of the right kind one, Amazon filters it for being one letter off from a definite slang time period they do not appear to like. )
I am, actually, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for solid in each point of my lifestyles i will be able to (I nonetheless preserve a home windows field round for video games, and i've to take advantage of it at work), all these database and video game initiatives i used to be engaged on must be Linux initiatives now. So i began with what i may get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux video game programming. First, enable me say that in case you are searching for hands-on educational stuff, this isn't the ebook for you. Collins is extra attracted to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you must do whatever, instead of what it's you need to do. whereas this is often evidently an exceptional factor and results in programmers who comprehend extra of what they are on approximately, it is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folk who're simply trying to find shortcuts, or solutions to a selected challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that video game layout itself is the main moveable 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 style (an complete bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), the various particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level options, are appropriate to video game designers who software for any platform. therefore, i may move methods the following; criticize the publication for probably not being approximately Linux particularly, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i will not do one or the opposite. How worthy you will find it's going to most probably rely on how a lot studying you might have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you've got performed an awful lot, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; differently, learn the whole lot. ***

The memory location is decremented again by a call to EndCriticalSection(). This location is checked by the dispatcher, and if it is positive, the process receives another time slice (up to 10 ms). If the process sleeps, calls yield(), or is checked by the dispatcher a second time, this behavior is automatically disabled. If the process is preempted by a higher priority process, it is again queued in the priority queue, but at the beginning instead of the end of the queue. If a thread is still in a critical section at the end of the extra time slice, it loses its scheduling benefit for one time slice.
