Game Development Goodies
Seeing as how its been a pretty slow news day, I put together a paragraph of assorted links once again that you might be interested in. These aren't neccesarily new, nor is any sentence neccesarily related to the ones around it. *Deep breath*...
A Highly Deformable 3D Environment by Stan Melax is certainly worth checking out. Geometry Formulas & Facts is a nice reference page. A.T. Campbell, III's download page has some interesting graphics-related material. Tom Nuydens released a Truespace COB loader on his Delphi coding site. Free Pascal is a free 32-bit pascal compiler. The Source Bank is a developer search engine. Check out the Future Colors demo (with source code). C++ In Action is a web book on C++. Thinking In C++ is another good book. And don't miss the STL Programmer's Guide. Gamasutra put up an article on internet cheating (in games). Geometry In Action's graphics section is worth a look. How about some pattern recognition information. Perhaps you'd enjoy some holographic artwork, or the Holography virtual gallery. The Universe Image Creator is a neat little (shareware) program that generates flares, nebulae, and much more. Paul Bourke has a great document on his page describing how to make any texture tile seamlessly. The rest of his site is well worth a visit also. FreeImage is an open source image library. FreeCraft is a free RTS game engine. Arturo Campos recently moved his site here, where you will find some great compression information. If compression is your thing, visit here also. I think I'm out of links for now. Enjoy...
