Half-Life 2 Hacks

Автор: Mark Holt Walker
Мягкая Обложка: 304 страниц
Издатель: O'Reilly; 1 издание (Март 1, 2006)
Язык: Английский
ISBN: 0596101309
Аннотация: The bestselling Half-Life computer game has won more than 50 game-of-the-year awards from publications around the world. Valve's latest release, Half-Life 2, has been tabbed "the greatest PC game ever" by the gaming press. With its gripping single-player campaign, immersive story, and breathtaking visuals, it's no wonder that millions of gamers have already snatched it up.
But if you're just playing the game start to finish, you haven't seen the half of Half-Life 2. Half-Life 2 Hacks is the must-have strategy guide for gamers who are adventurous enough to explore all the modifications, tweaks, Easter eggs, and conversions that can make the game even more intense and challenging.
Half-Life 2 is wildly popular with "modders" who push the game to its outer limits by constructing new levels, developing software that prevents cheating in multiplayer games, and building entirely new mods (whole new games, in essence) based on the Half-Life 2 engine. Author Mark Walker, a veteran electronic entertainment industry journalist and syndicated "GameGuy" columnist knows what a phenomenal game Half-Life 2 is--and how much more phenomenal you can make it with the right tricks, tweaks, and hacks.
Walker's Half-Life 2 Hacks opens up Half-Life 2's anomalies, cheats, and Easter Eggs and covers all the essential hacking and modding tips and tools you need to master and modify the greatest PC game ever. Along with cool tactics and strategy ploys, the book provides a collection of weapon, level, and vehicle hacks and explains things like how to beat the beasts and bosses that block your path.
Half-Life 2 Hacks even shows you how to get started on designing your own Half-Life 2 levels, textures, models, and downloadable maps as well as playing mods from others. There's no better guide to the countless ways you can enjoy the unbelievably intense and realistic Half-Life 2.

The Hows and Whys Of Level Design

The Hows and Whys Of Level Design front cover
Автор: Sjoerd De Jong ("Hourences")
Язык: Английский
Страницы: 152 страниц
Аннотация: This book covers both the visual and artistic side as well as the gameplay aspect of level design. Don’t expect any technical how-to tutorials in this book, this book is about the "why". Rather than writing yet another tutorial/book about how to create a virtual room this book is about how to make that room look cool and play well. Expect tips and techniques as well as explanations of the logic and reasoning behind art and design decisions. How does the gameplay in a level work? What’s the reason this kind of architecture gives this kind of feeling or looks better in situation A or B? Why does this color combination work so well? What kind of floorplan can I best use to improve gameplay and why? What type of sound setup should I use? The book is well illustrated and offers many examples with pictures, nearly 120 to be exact. The book is intended to be universal.
