Mark Collins, Linux online 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The major challenge with analyzing laptop books which are six years previous is that, good, they're six years outdated.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 an incredible 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 carrier contracts mandate. That, besides the fact that, 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 no longer day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the mandatory wisdom to get below the hood and tinker with Linux will carry real, so it isn't 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 exploit 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 truth, that newb. Having ultimately thrown Microsoft over for sturdy in each element of my existence i will (I nonetheless preserve a home windows field round for video games, and i've to exploit it at work), all these database and video game tasks i used to be engaged on must be Linux tasks now. So i began with what i may get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux video game programming. First, permit me say that in case you are trying to find hands-on instructional stuff, this isn't the publication 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 need to do. whereas this can be evidently an exceptional factor and results 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 selected challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that video game layout itself is the main moveable a part of any video game venture. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra acceptable to Linux improvement than the other variety (an complete bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), a few of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and the entire high-level options, are appropriate to online game designers who software for any platform. hence, i'll cross methods the following; criticize the ebook for not likely being approximately Linux in particular, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i will not do one or the opposite. How worthy you can find it's going to most likely rely on how a lot interpreting you may have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you have got performed lots, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; another way, learn the whole lot. ***
