Hands On DarkBASIC Pro - Volume 2

This is Volume 2 in the acclaimed 'Hands On DarkBASIC Professional' series. Volume 1 concentrated on the fundamentals of software construction and all of the core and 2D facets of DarkBASIC Professional. Volume 2 takes it to the next stage offering an in-depth look at all of the 3D related command sets. Everything from 3D terminology and navigation, to Camera work, Lighting, Meshes and Limbs, Texturing, Collision and more.

The hands-on approach used throughout the book means that most of your time is spent at the computer creating programs. The numerous examples and exercises (with solutions included) lead you through both the basics and subtleties of the language. There are several complete games for you to study and modify. The code media from the book is available to download from the publishers web site. The subjects this book covers are:

  • 3D Concepts and Terminology
  • 3D Primitives
  • Texturing
