The torrent is ordered by the listings of the items within the design3 website they may not be in logical order for follow along. Unity ===== design3 loves the Unity engine! We love it because it’s a game development tool that’s intuitive, easy to use, and supports multi-platform development. The Unity engine gets out of your way, allowing you to focus on creating games and interactive content. It’s an ideal solution for beginners and veterans alike looking to develop simulations and casual and serious games for web, mobile, or console. Interface ========= What exactly is an "interface"? The interface is the interaction or communication point between various software and hardware components and you, the developer. An easier way to think about the interface of a software program is that the interface determines how the work environment looks, where the menus and buttons are located, the colors and icons of the tools, and how you actually use the software. design3's interface tutorials will teach you how to use the software tools, streamline your workflows, and maximize the full potential of your projects. Techniques Every tool has unique features that do specific things. Learn how to efficiently and effectively use these features with design3's technique tutorials. Work like the pros, maximize the potential of your tools, save time, and create amazing projects. Game Builds = A game build determines your game's progression and is basically what your players will use to play your game. In these tutorials you'll learn the basic structures for different types of genres by dissecting already built games. First play the game in the design3 arcade and then find out how that game was made by working through the tutorials. Coding ====== Coding is the process of designing, writing, testing, debugging, and maintaining the source code for your games. This source code is written in one or more programming languages with the purpose of creating specific operations or desired behaviors. Learn basic AI, animation scripting, networking scripting, gameplay programming, and more with these tutorials. Mobile ====== Want to make mobile games? In these tutorials you will learn how to make games for iOS and Android, as well as how to deploy them to the App Store and App Marketplace. Our goal is to not only help you make great mobile games, but also make money from them too. Asset Integration ======= You've created or gathered the assets, now it's time to put those assets into your game. These asset integration tutorials will demonstrate how to put your 2D and 3D assets, such as models, textures, and characters, into various game engines. Learn how to organize and manage your assets in order to improve your workflows and see your custom content in a game environment. [Hidden Content]

(May 2012) Language: English ISBN-10:1615424059 ISBN-13: 978-1615424054 File Size: 7.8 MB If you’re trying to solve a particular problem, you can jump in and read the topics in this ebook in any order, but if you start at the beginning, you’ll learn how Apple’s 802.11n gear fits into the world of Wi-Fi networking. With that background, you’ll learn where to position and how to set up base stations, with diagrams showing common network scenarios – see two examples above – and with step-by-step instructions for configuring key Internet sharing and security options and connecting client computers. For those who have funky Internet connections or tricky IP addressing needs, Glenn provides extended advice for creating a working Wi-Fi network. Glenn provides real-world directions for important scenarios, including how to: Create a basic (or not so basic) Wi-Fi network, using Apple’s base stations: Set up a wireless network with a single base station, or with multiple base stations – whether you want to extend a network with Ethernet or a wireless connection (or a mix of the two), Glenn examines your options and provides configuration steps. He also touches briefly on powerline connections. Keep your existing network, but replace an older or broken base station with a new one. Export your base station’s configuration, either to make a backup or to create a model configuration to use on other base stations. Connect Macs (specific steps for 10.5 Leopard and later), iOS devices, and Windows 7 computers to your network. Set up reliable and relevant security for your network. Also, add a guest network that gives your guests Internet access while restricting their access to local resources. Attach peripherals to your network: Add a USB-connected printer, and connect to the printer from Mac and Windows computers. Add a USB-attached drive to a Time Capsule or AirPort Extreme, and configure client access. Connect a 2nd- or 3rd-generation Apple TV to your network Do more networking: Set up a Time Machine backup to a Time Capsule base station. Expand the capabilities of an AirPort Express by setting up audio streaming, trying Rogue Amoeba’s Airfoil media streaming utility, or extending your network with ProxySTA. Share files conveniently and wirelessly with Lion’s AirDrop file-transfer feature, plus understand the type of networking that AirDrop uses.

The popular cellular networks and wireless local area networks (WLANs) present perfectly complementary characteristics in terms of service capacity, mobility support, and quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning. The cellular/WLAN interworking is an effective way to promote the evolution of wireless networks. Interworking of Wireless LANs and Cellular Networks focuses on three aspects, namely access selection, call admission control and load sharing to investigate heterogeneous interworking for cellular/WLAN integrated networks. It not only reveals important observations but also offers useful tools for performance evaluation. The unique traffic and network characteristics are exploited to enhance interworking effectiveness. Theoretical analysis and simulation validation demonstrate benefits of cellular/WLAN interworking in real networks. Last but not the least, this brief highlights promising future research directions to guide interested readers. Table of Contents Introduction on Cellular/WLAN Interworking.

Because the network has become such a strategic business tool, its availability is of utmost importance to companies and their service providers. The challenges for the professionals responsible for these networks include ensuring that the network remains up all the time, keeping abreast of the latest technologies that help maintain uptime, and reacting to ever-increasing denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Building Resilient IP Networks helps you meet those challenges. This practical guide to building highly available IP networks captures the essence of technologies that contribute to the uptime of networks. You gain a clear understanding of how to achieve network availability through the use of tools, design strategy, and Cisco IOS® Software. With Building Resilient IP Networks, you examine misconceptions about five-nines availability and learn to focus your attention on the real issues: appreciating the limitations of the protocols, understanding what has been done to improve them, and keeping abreast of those changes. Building Resilient IP Networks highlights the importance of having a modular approach to building an IP network and, most important, illustrates how a modular design contributes to a resilient network. You learn how an IP network can be broken down to various modules and how these modules interconnect with one another. Then you explore new network resiliency features that have been developed recently, categorized with respect to the design modules. Building Resilient IP Networks is relevant to both enterprise and service provider customers of all sizes. Regardless of whether the network connects to the Internet, fortifying IP networks for maximum uptime and prevention of attacks is mandatory for anyone’s business. This book is part of the Networking Technology Series from Cisco Press®, which offers networking professionals valuable information for constructing efficient networks, understanding new technologies, and building successful careers.
