starting site for DirectorMX?
I'm using google like a madman, but am getting curious about developing some quick (*laugh*) games using Shockwave Director..
Can anyone recommend a good starting point (games-wise) for it? Either a URL or a book is fine..
I'm well versed in 3D concepts, if that makes any difference (ie. I need a beginning starting point for Director programming but not really 3d programming)..
Thanks a lot,
My trial version's about to expire and I haven't made an asteroids clone yet to test it out..
Here is one of the best resources I've used over the years, Director Web. It includes an archive of the Direct-L mailing listserv:
I highly recommend DirGames-L (D-Guy already posted the link).
DirGames-L is focused on games and there are quite a few developers on there who do 3D games (including myself ). Whenever I run into a problem, I always search their archive before I even use Google. Also, a few folks from Macromedia post there occasionally.
I also highly recommend the book, "Director's Third Dimension" by Paul Catanese. I'd say it's pretty much the Bible for creating Director 3D games.
