- Die bekannten Design Patterns der Gang of Four im konkreten Einsatz für die Entwicklung von Games - Zahlreiche weitere vom Autor entwickelte Patterns - Sequenzierungs-, Verhaltens-, Entkopplungs- und Optimierungsmuster Für viele Spieleprogrammierer stellt die Finalisierung ihres Spiels die größte Herausforderung dar. Viele Projekte verlaufen im Sande, weil Programmierer der Komplexität des eigenen Codes nicht gewachsen sind. Die im Buch beschriebenen Design Patterns nehmen genau dieses Problem in Angriff. Der Autor blickt auf jahrelange Erfahrung in der Entwicklung von weltweit erfolgreichen Games zurück und stellt erprobte Patterns vor, mit deren Hilfe Sie Ihren Code entwirren und optimieren können. Die Patterns sind in Form unabhängiger Fallbeispiele organisiert, so dass Sie sich nur mit den für Sie relevanten zu befassen brauchen und das Buch auch hervorragend zum Nachschlagen verwenden können. Sie erfahren, wie man eine stabile Game Loop schreibt, wie Spielobjekte mithilfe von Komponenten organisiert werden können und wie man den CPU-Cache nutzt, um die Performance zu verbessern. Außerdem werden Sie sich damit beschäftigen, wie Skript-Engines funktionieren, wie Sie Ihren Code mittels Quadtrees und anderen räumlichen Aufteilungen optimieren und wie sich die klassischen Design Patterns in Spielen einsetzen lassen.

3D Computer Graphics

Author: Alan H. Watt
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
ISBN: 0201398559
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Computers

This book provides students with a knowledge of complex and emerging topics in the field of Computer Graphics, including advances in rendering and new material on animation. It will enable the reader to master the fundamentals of 3D computer graphics as well as acting as a complete resource for anyone interested in 3D modelling. It provides detailed coverage of both realistic and non-realistic images. This is the third edition of a book which deals with the processes involved in converting a mathematical or geometric description of an object into a visualisation that simulates the appearance of a real object. Traditionally computer graphics has created pictures by starting with a very detailed geometric description, subjecting this to a series of transformations that orient a viewer and objects in 3D space, then imitating reality by making the objects look solid and real - a process known as rendering. Nowadays this is proving insufficient for the new demands of moving computer imagery and virtual reality. Much research is being carried out into how to model complex objects, where the nature and shape of the objects changes dynamically and into capturing the richness of the world without having to model every detail explicitly. This text explores and relates thee resulting in diverse synthesis and modelling methods.
