I just bought the book "Tricks of the window's game programming gurus" by Andre Lamothe. Ive been reading over it at work, and the damn thing is good!!! It's cleared up alot of my misconceptions about windows programming. Im into the 3rd chapter and its hard to put down. This book has earned Generator's ultra cool thumbs up and smiley:D have any of you other guys read it?
>ultra cool thumbs up and smiley
right on! i recommend C: The Complete Reference... by Herbert Schildt... i don't know if C++: TCR is just as good but i might think so...
I dont have Tricks of the Game Programming Gurus, but lots of my friends do, and I want to get it.
Meanwhile, I recommend:
Real Time Strategy Game Programming using MS DirectX 6.0 by Mickey Kawick, one of the developers of AoE.
Assembly Language Primer by The Waite Group. <-- this is absolutely the BEST Asm source I have EVER read in my life. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it 15.
Cool, Ill check them out later on. I have to go im off work in 20 mins, and I have to do all the stuff I was putting off. This book is great keeps you interested you should get it. :D
