Creating Games in C++ : A Step-by-Step Guide

Buy
Do you love video games? Ever wondered if you could create one of your own, with all the bells and whistles? It's not as complicated as you'd think, and you don't need to be a math whiz or a programming genius to do it. In fact, everything you need to create your first game, "Invasion of the Slugwroths," is included in this book and CD-ROM. Author David Conger starts at square one, introducing the tools of the trade and all the basic concepts for getting started programming with C++, the language that powers most current commercial games. Plus, he's put a wealth of top-notch (and free) tools on the CD-ROM, including the Dev-C++ compiler, linker, and debugger--and his own LlamaWorks2D game engine. Step-by-step instructions and ample illustrations take you through game program structure, integrating sound and music into games, floating-point math, C++ arrays, and much more. Using the sample programs and the source code to run them, you can follow along as you learn. Bio: David Conger has been programming professionally for over 23 years. Along with countless custom business applications, he has written several PC and online games. Conger also worked on graphics firmware for military aircraft, and taught computer science at the university level for four years. Conger has written numerous books on C, C++, and other computer-related topics. He lives in western Washington State and has also published a collection of Indian folk tales.

The first video game I ever played (at age 13) was Pong. It was a very simple ping-pong simulation. During my teenage years, a few, more advanced games appeared on the market. Most notable were the Atari games such as Missile Command, a nuclear warfare simulator. When I was 19, I went to live for a couple of years in Japan. There I discovered a whole new worldseveral, in fact.

Around the time I arrived in Japan, the game Space Invaders had just crested its phenomenal wave of popularity. I had never seen anything so cool. By the time I returned to the United States, video games were everywhere.

Glucose Metabolism in the Brain, Volume 51 (International Review of Neurobiology.)
Glucose Metabolism in the Brain, Volume 51 (International Review of Neurobiology.)
Glucose is an essential energy source for the adult human brain. When blood glucose levels fall by half from a normal fasting value (to about 2–3 mM), there is some cognitive impairment and, at glucose levels below 1 mM, mental confusion is evident and coma may result from sustained glucose deprivation. Recent studies...
