Still in discussion with the publisher about preview pages.

Thanks Schoening, I hope you like it, and feel free to pm me if you want any extra help =] I think that date might only be for the e-book version, with the full printed copy coming afterward though.

Heh, you probably know everything I have to teach Mipey

@Noga @sved, I can confirm the book is coming out before the end of this month now.

It will have an article with samples from one of the advanced chapters, and a full sampler of chapter 2, which teaches the reader the beginnings of a Mario/Sonic style game.

Why is it not the whole book free? All my games are free, and I spend several hours a day making them. People are to obssesed with money these days...

@Urled you could be right, but there is an effort behind writing a book I dont know if comparable to write a videogame, still sometimes we need to appreciate self work, expertise dont come from nothing... I share my knowledge for free because i took it from other people or by myself experience, but at the end if those knowledge will be useful thats my satisfaction. If someone like to give me money for that knowledge why not eccept it...

I originally thought I was making a book for free, and I would happily help a tonne of people with Construct Classic anytime.

However, it just so happened that the person who asked for help was a worker at PacktPub. I felt I should take the opportunity to write the book.

This wasn't made with an obsession with money @Urled, far from it. I care about Construct Classic, and wanted to make it reach a larger audience.

Thats is good, while many people knows about CC more and better will be the Knowledge around it, and therefore the better will be the games developed...
