Description:
This is a collection of the author's previous books on assembly language and graphics programming, as well as past columns for Dr. Dobb's magazine. Though much of the book is out-of-date by now, the reader can see some of the author's tendencies: -a reliance on profiling in order to test code, and creative thinking to improve performance wherever possible. 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.
