C/OpenGL game programming book

Posted 26 May 2008 - 05:13 PM

I'm writing a short ebook (think, extended tutorial) on game programming with C and OpenGL for beginners. The book will cover writing a simple clone of Space Invaders.

I'll post up what I've written so far if anyone is interested. :)

I would be interested.

If I got past some of the basics I may even use it. I have too many outstanding projects to start another form scratch without a kickstart :blink:

Attached to this post is a PDF of what I've written so far. It's pretty much just the introduction chapter, and I really haven't proofread much of it. :)

The game code has already been written, but I would like to clean it up a bit and do some testing on other machines to make sure my FPS limiting code is working correctly.

Good start!

Clear concise and I agree with all you have said. While I wait for the next installment I'll keep working on X windows.

I've been sick for a couple of days, and final exams are coming up soon so I probably won't have much time to work on it.

I would like to continue writing it though, I just need the time. :)

Very nice. I agree with the other posters that your writing style is very engaging. I look forward to seeing more.
