The last few chapters explore the technology behind the popular Doom and Quake 3-D games by id Corporation. Optimized solutions to 3-D graphics problems from texture mapping, hidden surface removal, and Binary Space Partitioning trees are explained. This book is clearly targeted at game developers and serious assembly language programmers.
