Mark Collins, Linux online game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with studying laptop books which are six years outdated is that, good, they're six years previous. this isn't a massive challenge within the home windows global; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows expertise will remain round much longer than the provider contracts mandate. That, even if, is sort of by no means the case with Linux, the place a big 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 below the hood and tinker with Linux will carry real, so it is not like there is completely not anything to realize from a ebook like this if 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 undeniable slang time period they do not appear to like. )
I am, in reality, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for solid in each element of my existence i will (I nonetheless retain a home windows field round for video games, and i've to take advantage of it at work), all these database and online game tasks i used to be engaged on must be Linux initiatives now. So i began with what i'll get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux video game programming. First, enable me say that in case you are trying to find hands-on instructional stuff, this isn't the ebook for you. Collins is extra drawn to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you need to do whatever, instead of what it's 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 truly 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 acknowledged, then, is that online game layout itself is the main transportable a part of any video game undertaking. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra appropriate to Linux improvement than the other variety (an complete bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), some of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level ideas, are acceptable to online game designers who application for any platform. therefore, i may pass methods right here; criticize the e-book for probably not being approximately Linux in particular, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i cannot do one or the opposite. How important you will find it is going to most likely depend upon how a lot analyzing you may have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you've got performed a lot, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; in a different way, learn the whole lot. ***

These devices may load automatically, or you may be shown a list of devices from which you can choose. Figure 2-1 shows a list of bootable devices in a Solaris boot system on the Intel platform. The boot device doesn’t have to be a physical hard drive, because the system can boot from the network or from removable storage such as a CD-ROM or floppy diskette. A boot device simply holds the information about where to load the operating system. The bootstrap phase only identifies the hardware available for booting and whether it is usable.
Info Chapter 2 Mac OS X and some of the newer versions of Unix are not as verbose as other Unix systems, because, as Unix has evolved, the makers of the different Unix systems have made ease of use their primary goal. Because the typical end user has no use for the information, a lot of the messages that appear on initialization screens of older versions of Unix generally aren’t displayed by Mac OS X and user-friendly Linuxes. You can use the escape sequence (Cmd+v) to view the boot messages on the Mac OS X.
You can boot or start from only one device at a time, but, because many different devices can be identified as bootable, one of those other identified devices can be used if one bootable device has a failure. These devices may load automatically, or you may be shown a list of devices from which you can choose. Figure 2-1 shows a list of bootable devices in a Solaris boot system on the Intel platform.
