5.0 von 5 Sternen Pocket PC Game Programming 19. Januar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Excellent tutorial for becoming familiar with programming for the Pocket PC platform, but also for novices to windows programming in general. Harbour starts at the ground up, explaining the differences between the two in an easier to understand writing style. I have tried for years to grasp c++ programming after working with BASIC and countless other languages but for some reason could not. After working through the book, not only did I have a working, infinitely expandable 2D game engine for programming for PPC, but I had finally gained a much better understanding of the language.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book but typos in code on cd 12. Juni 2001
Von Don R. Hanson II - Veröffentlicht auf
If you know how to program and want to try out the Pocket PC then this is a great book to own. It gives you some background, spends just a little time on the "structure of a Windows app", then gets into doing cool things on the PocketPC. The chapters on getting images to the screen faster using the Game Api (DirectX precursor) were great. I've always wanted to do Sockets/Networking programming and this book is where I learned. Btw, I'm not a game programmer!
Only downside is the cd which contains a number of errors in the example code. Since the code is also in the book, its not that big of a deal (just a little shoddy). The cd also comes packed with a ton of games.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Forget the *GAME* part 16. März 2002
Von Patrick Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you wanted to write a game for a PocketPC device this would absolutly be your book. However, I've been writing utility applications I find myself using this book over other references. This is the best lightweight WinCE/PocketPC progamming book out there- games or not. Harbour covers topics in a very easy-to-understand way- from graphics and sound to networking. No matter what the issue I usually go to this book first, then then web, then one of the other WinCE books I own if need be. If you're new to WinCE (esp. coming from a non Win32 background) this book is exceptionally great.

4.0 von 5 Sternen All you need to get started 17. September 2001
Von Watson - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is a great resource. The library, which the author develops and improves throughout the book, enables you to write your own 2D games for the PocketPC with ease. If you have some programming background in C++ you will have no problems to follow. The money spent on this book is an investment that pays off. You will have lots of fun and can make some money too, if you want to. Windows CE is a powerful operating system that becomes more and more important, especially in the game sector and Microsoft provides a professional IDE for free (get this, Palm developers!).
The content could have been presented on half the number of pages and the book is not perfect, but hey: it's a bargain none the less and it comes at the right time!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tons of sample code and working games 5. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
So many game programming books today come with absolutely not a single sample game for the reader to play with. The whole point of reading a game book is to learn how to write games, right? Well how is one supposed to learn to write a complete game from scratch if the book doesn't include even a single game?
That is why I loved this book! It includes a ton of sample programs, and I think five or six complete games--that's right, complete games! Even check out that last game in the book, Pocket Air Hockey, which is multiplayer! Amazing! I can't believe that. This book had enough material to make it a good book, maybe with some coverage of more types of games, but instead the author took it to a whole new level and did what most game programming books don't even attempt--creating a complete multiplayer networked game. The game even includes a mini chat screen where two players can send messages back and forth before playing.
As far as I'm concerned, this book is the complete package for writing games for Pocket PCs. So many books cover a subset of game programming, one specific thing here or there, but this book covers everything about Pocket PCs you will need for the next couple years. The only thing I would add--and I'm not complaining--but it would be cool to have covered a Game API bitmap drawing function. Hopefully a GAPI blitter will be available on the author's web site soon.
Anyways, this book is the only book you need to write PPc games, period. Oh and be sure to join the YahooGroups's list which has a lot of cool programmers who will help you out.
