Is there a preview PDF hidden somewhere? (Without Flash.)
Does anyone here have it? Is it good?
KungFuSquirrel Was Quoted In This And I Wasn't
this was when he sat in the cubicle next to me, too :(
Flash crashed my browser(s) several times per day so I decided to ditch it. I don't know if it is "minor use" here as all I know is that some preview is hidden in it. :(
If it keeps crashing your browser, then you need to either upgrade that or your flash plugin. I haven't had any issues with Flash whatsoever on either Windows Vista 64bit with both IE7 and Firefox3 as well as my Nokia N95 phone, all of them play flash content without any crashes or slowdowns whatsoever, so the problem is not in Flash, it's quite clearly in your installation.
Well, sue me, I am using Linux.
seems a decent starting point.
If We Go This Route
we might as well all start using text-only browsing in Lynx, considering both Firefox and IE have had exploits where simply loading a page with a malicious Jpg/Png file would lead to execution of arbitrary code on your system.
I had to use a bit of script to get IE to load png files properly, so that the transparency worked properly.....
sometimes you cant avoid the stuff.
Hey, Remember That Time?
when that book, like, came out?
did anyone buy it?
I'm planning to purchase. His lighting and DM Layout guides were helpful and informative, so I'd expect the rest to be the same.
Actually I've got this on my bookshelf. The regular version. Honestly, I think it was money very well spent.
Besides loads of good information on level design in general, the most help for me was that I started really thinking about my maps, my motivations and decisions of each different part, and how they work together as a whole. I still keep the book around as reference while I'm mapping, especially the parts on lighting.
It's informative, it's suited for all level designers, even though the examples happen to mostly use the Unreal engine, it's well laid out with good (well, illustrative) pictures. Definitely recommended. Oh, and get the print version, much more nice to lug around.
And Blitz Was Interviewed For It
So it's a must read.
I'm writing my own fucking book.
