Artificial Intelligence for Games Companion CD-ROM by Ian Millington

By Ian Millington

I purchased this ebook for a synthetic Intelligence for video games category at my college. i have not learn via the entire e-book, yet i will be able to already inform you that the pseudo-code during this e-book is particularly negative. it is visible that the writer did not really plow through and run the code to ensure it labored. within the stream algorithms, the code might occasionally regulate rotation (speed of orientation) while it's going to be changing the orientation itself. within the dynamic kinematics classification, the code multiplies the rate by means of the acceleration rather than simply easily including the acceleration to the speed.

Even should you get the supplied stream algorithms to paintings the best way the writer most likely meant, there are nonetheless matters that are not thought of. I will not get into an excessive amount of aspect yet an instance is the "Arrive" habit. It does not paintings appropriately as the bot by no means arrives at it truly is objective. there's not anything within the set of rules that truly decelerates the bot or nullifies the rate. so that you essentially get a bot that wiggles from side to side on desk bound targets.

The factors are lovely instantly foward, and that i admit i have not learn the complete booklet but. I simply imagine it is beautiful unacceptable to submit anything with such a lot of mistakes within the pseudo-code.
