Game techniques

Post by cdoty » Mon Jul 09, 2007 3:13 pm

I'm alway interested to read how people accomplish things in games. Many of the techniques can be applied to any game system, including the Genesis.

I'll start the list with a link to information about The Apprentice for the CD-I:

http://cdidev.tripod.com/apprent.htm

Please post any relevant game programming techniques.

Post by cdoty » Tue Feb 17, 2009 7:44 am

Here's an interesting article about coding practices in 1991:
http://cowboyprogramming.com/2008/11/15 ... s-in-1991/

It covers programming in 68000 assembly mainly.

Here's a collision detection article:

The example routine is written in Z80 asm, but would be easy to adapt to the 68000, or use directly on the Master System.

I think reading this book http://bizzley.com/ , you'll learn a lot of good thing ;)

"IT'S BEHIND YOU is specifically about a game called R-Type I wrote back in 1988 for the then Sir-less Clive Sinclair's ZX Spectrum home computer"

so ? not already downloading this free ebook ?

Nice! Thanks for sharing.

Perhaps a sticky thread could be made in the tools forum for free books on programming. There are enough questions about programming that such a thread would be handy.
