Linux Game Programming w/CD (Prima Tech's Game Development)

Mark Collins, Linux video game Programming (Prima, 2001)

The major challenge with analyzing laptop books which are six years previous is that, good, they're six years outdated. this isn't a major challenge within the home windows international; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows expertise will remain round much longer than the carrier contracts mandate. That, even if, is nearly 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 thirty days, if now not day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the required wisdom to get lower than the hood and tinker with Linux will carry real, so it is not like there is completely not anything to achieve from a ebook 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, actually, that newb. Having eventually thrown Microsoft over for sturdy in each element of my existence i will (I nonetheless hold a home windows field round for video games, and i've to take advantage of it at work), all these database and video 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 searching for hands-on instructional stuff, this isn't the ebook for you. Collins is extra attracted to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you must do anything, instead of what it's you need to do. whereas this can be evidently an outstanding factor and ends up in programmers who comprehend extra of what they are 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 stated, then, is that video game layout itself is the main moveable a part of any online game venture. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra appropriate to Linux improvement than the other style (an whole bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), some of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and all the high-level thoughts, are acceptable to video game designers who application for any platform. hence, i'll cross methods the following; criticize the ebook for not likely 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 examining you've gotten already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you might have performed lots, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; another way, learn the whole lot. ***
