Even More GDC Stuff
Here we have a couple more links to GDC material:
Many thanks to Randy and Thomas for sending the links.
Effective Project Management, a GDC presentation by Randy Angle & William Dwyer. According to the introduction, it covers "tips and tricks used by seasoned professionals on successful projects. It shows how to survive those difficult to avoid obstacles that the game industry experiences on a daily basis. From the practical project template to the "squishy" people skills you will find something to use on your next project."
Advanced Character Physics ( paper ) by Thomas Jakobsen. According to the author, "It explains how to make dead human (articulated) bodies fall under the influence of gravity fully interacting with the environment (the approach was used in Hitman: Codename 47). It also deals with an extremely fast method for cloth simulation, implementation of rigid bodies, plants etc."
