This book focuses on how to create game art properly for a game engine,
as well as how to export that art to the engine and make script
changes so that the art becomes a viable part of the game.
Although many of the processes and techniques will apply to specific
modeling, texturing, animation, and game software solutions, this book
will use 3ds Max release 8 to generate models and animations, and the
Torque Game Engine for the game-side examples.

Performance problems are rarely “problems” per se. They are more often “crises” during which you’re pressured for results by a manager standing outside your cubicle while your phone rings with queries from the help desk. You won’t have the time for a leisurely perusal of the manuals, nor to lean back and read a book on theory. What you need in that situation is a book of solutions, and solutions are precisely what Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Recipes delivers.
Consumer and business customers today seek wireless service that is readily
accessible, benefit rich, secure and affordable. Voice, data and video services,
Internet games, and mobile office access must all be provided to meet growing
demand from customers. Rollout of third-generation networks has made real-time
information flow of news, music, sports updates, browsing and image sharing
a reality that is driving growth and change in the network. The move toward
faster service will continue without end and requires that both bandwidth and
network locations be increased.

More young people go on social networking sites than watch news or entertainment
programs on television; just 40% of those younger than 25 watched something other
than news on TV yesterday. Even among those 30 to 49, nearly as many used social
networking sites (49%) as watched entertainment television (55%).
Gaming also has become an increasingly popular daily activity. In 2006, 17% played
games on a computer or video game console yesterday; in the current survey, 33% say
they played a game yesterday on one of these formats or on a mobile device. Among
those younger than 30, more...

This workbook is intended for children who are beginning to learn English as a second or foreign language. Its aim is to encourage pupils to learn the language as a means of communicating with the teacher and with each other.
The stimulus is provided by games, and a variety of activities and picture puzzles, which, in motivating the pupil to find solutions, encourage him to practice the language used for making guesses, forming judgements, expressing agreement or disagreement, asking and answering questions, etc.

BI is not only recession-proof, it actually thrives in a down market. While many firms have been cutting expenses across the board, investment in BI has grown by 20 percent in 2008 versus 13 percent the previous year. BI makes executives take a critical look at their operations. When business leaders understand and embrace BI, it can be a game changer.
The need for Business Intelligence (BI) solutions and data analysis has always
existed, and so have different approaches to fulfill this need. Traditional BI software
has heavily relied on techniques that have been around and persisted through the
decades, but newer technologies have emerged in recent times that have proven
to be more flexible and, therefore, more adequate for the evolving environment in
which they are used. QlikView is an example of this kind of disruptive technology, a
kind of software that changes the rules of the game.
QlikView is different; that's a fact.
Apple's iOS has taken the world by storm and provided a game development platform, which for the first time gives average developers an opportunity to compete in the global multi-billion dollar entertainment software space. While there are several viable solutions for developing games for this platform, Unity has emerged as a leading platform for iOS and other platforms as well. With Unity's toolset, and this book, you will take the first steps on your journey to producing commercial quality games for the iOS platform....
Early in the first decade of the 21st century, high-stakes achievement
testing became the chief instrument that the U.S. federal government and
state governments adopted for repairing what was deemed "the deplorable
condition of schooling in America." However, as testing programs
were implemented, it became clear that achievement testing as the prime
solution for students' unacceptable academic performance was accompanied
by a host of collateral damage in the form of vexing, unexpected,
Given the spatial relationships extracted as described above, our
goal is to integrate this information into an optimization framework
with a properly deﬁned cost function quantifying the quality of the
furniture arrangement. Given an arbitrary room layout populated by
furniture objects, the synthesized arrangement should be useful for
virtual environment modeling in games and movies, interior design
software, and other applications.
The search space of our problem is highly complex as objects are
interdependent in the optimization process.

This will in many cases provide the possibility
to prevent users to copy games between each
other, prevent solution and media stealing,
prevent reverse engineering of critical
algorithms, prevent code tampering in for
