    Great book that got me started on programming on OS X (had never touched obj-C before this, altho I did have a comp. sci. degree under my belt). Helped me understand a lot w/in Pocket Gnome.

    This book is great if you already have an understanding of C Sharp, and want to write better/more coherent code, or simply get a better understanding of combining linq, lamba expressions, delegates etc. The book features much less theory than most programming books, and simply shows annotated demonstrations of advanced programming techniques.

    Does anyone have a online book/book recommendation for a C++ programmer learning C#?

    Most beginner tutorials are just about stuff that is obvious to me-
    Hey, it compiles! Ship it!

    Take a look at "Apress Accelerated C# 2010", a normal google will give you a free ebook of it

    Highly recommended: [ame=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0123747317/]Amazon.com: Artificial Intelligence for Games, Second Edition (9780123747310): Ian Millington, John Funge: Books[/ame]

    This useful resource covers writing AI for games including pathfinding (all you ever wanted to know about navmeshes, A*, Dijkstra, and so on), steering, general AI (it discusses reactive AI's like FSM's and BT's, planners like GOAP's, "fuzzy logic," and more exotic variants like Markov systems), machine learning (neural nets made simple, huzzah!), scheduling (very important and under-considered by game/bot coders), tooling, and more. It also has an entire chapter on AI tactics -- an interesting an neglected area of discussion, ranging from high-level discussions of military room-clearing tactics (probably not much use to WoW-botters... well, maybe PvP'ers... but still interesting) to more general concepts like influence maps and threat calculations.

    In many ways, it's a one-stop shop for AI coders for games. Almost ALL of the information is pertinent to bot designers. While it's not deeply academic (it's not just pages of vector calculus equations), it doesn't shy away from the math either (like some "AI" books do), and usually gives a good thumbnail sketch of the theory behind the praxis, so that you can be confident that the authors know what they're talking about.

    Pseudocode samples (mostly in Python-like language, which should be readable to just about anyone) abound, and there is a companion website (Artificial Intelligence for Games) with additional code samples. The companion site is a little disappointing, but the book is well worth it.

    I own *all* of the AI Game Programming Wisdom books as well as several academic texts on the subject, and I can easily say that this book has been hands-down the most useful reference tool for me when designing botting software. Highly worth the 50-60 dollars.

    Yay! Finally, now i don't have to keep searching all over the place for books. Anyway, i wanted to ask, would these books that involve using the windows developer tools work with WINE on a mac?

    Yeah, the "AI Game Programming Wisdom" is nice. Unfortunately i only have the first one... Does anybody have digital copies of the other 3? ^^

    Also i need a book about some more advances c++ stuff, like how to write proper smart-pointers, garbage collectors etc. Does anybody know a good book for that?

    EDIT: misread "Artificial Intelligence for Games, Second Edition" -- sry but "AI Game Programming Wisdom" is nice none the less.

    Not a book, but a good reference imo: geek edition | X86 Opcode and Instruction Reference 1.11
