This latest addition to the Wordware Game Developer's Library describes how to create computer games with cutting-edge 3-D algorithms and effects. "Advanced 3-D Game Programming Using DirectX 7.0" is intended specifically for those who know how to program with C++ but have not yet explored game or graphics programming. The authors include coverage of artificial intelligence, client-server networking using UDP, multi-texture effects, multi-resolution surface techniques, alpha blending, and more. Along with several sample applications that target specific algorithms, full source code is provided for a client-server networked 3-D first-person game that demonstrates many of the techniques discussed in the book, while giving the reader the opportunity to make their own additions. The CD includes: Full source code in C++, including a complete game demonstrating techniques covered in the bookMicrosoft's DirectX 7a SDKSource code to other 3-D engines, including Quake, GL Quake, Quakeworld, Descent 1, Descent 2, Golgotha, and Crystal SpaceSelect articles on advanced gaming topics contributed by members of the graphics and game programming industryPaint Shop Pro evaluation edition for making texturesAdrian Perez, also known as [Cuban] in the computer game industry, has worked on the Direct3D team at Microsoft and in the graphics department at Lucent. He is a computer science major at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and a contributor to Game Developer magazine. Dan Royer is a developer at 3D Ion, a 3-D graphics company in Israel, and a contributor to flipcode.com, an online game programming news site.

Introduction to 3D Game Programming with DirectX 9.0c: A Shader Approach presents an introduction to programming interactive computer graphics, with an emphasis on game development, using real-time shaders with DirectX 9.0. The book is divided into three parts that explain basic mathematical and 3D concepts, show how to describe 3D worlds and implement fundamental 3D rendering techniques, and demonstrate the application of Direct3D to create a variety of special effects. With this book understand basic mathematical tools used in video game creation such as vectors, matrices, and transformations; discover how to describe and draw interactive 3D scenes using Direct3D and the D3DX library; learn how to implement lighting, texture mapping, alpha blending, and stenciling using shaders and the high-level shading language (HLSL); explore a variety of techniques for creating special effects, including vertex blending, character animation, terrain rendering, multi-texturing, particle systems, reflections, shadows, and normal mapping;f ind out how to work with meshes, load and render .X files, program terrain/camera collision detection, and implement 3D object picking; review key ideas, gain programming experience, and explore new topics with the end-of-chapter exercises.

Today is the greatest time in history to be in the game business. We now have the technology to create games that look real! Sony's Playstation II, XBOX, and Game Cube are cool! But, all this technology isn't easy or trivial to understand - it takes really hard work and lots of Red Bull. The difficulty level of game programming has definitely been cranked up these days in relation to the skill set needed to make games. Andre LaMothe's follow-up book to Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus is the one to read for the latest in 3D game programming. When readers are finished with Tricks of the 3D Game Programming Gurus-Advanced 3D Graphics and Rasterization, they will be able to create a full 3D texture-mapped, lit video game for the PC with a software rasterizer they can write themselves. Moreover, they will understand the underlying principles of 3D graphics and be able to better understand and utilize 3D hardware today and in the

In comparison to the popular first edition, "Programming Role Playing Games with DirectX (1931841098), this second version covers the updated version of DirectX (DirectX 9). Readers learn how to use DirectX 9 to create a complete role-playing game. This comprehensive guide contains everything the reader needs to know, while at the same time incorporating reader feedback and eliminating the bare-boned basics contained in the first edition. It begins by teaching the reader how to use the various components of DirectX 9 (DirectX Graphics, DirectX Audio, DirectInput, and DirectPlay). Once readers have a basic understanding of DirectX 9, they can move on to building the basic functions needed to create a game - from drawing 2D and 3D graphics to creating a scripting system. All this information is then wrapped up as the reader sees how to create an entire game - from start to finish!
