Artificial Intelligence for Games Companion CD-ROM by Ian Millington

By Ian Millington

I purchased this e-book for a man-made Intelligence for video games classification at my college. i have not learn via the entire publication, yet i will already inform you that the pseudo-code during this publication is especially negative. it is noticeable that the writer did not truly struggle through and run the code to ensure it labored. within the move algorithms, the code might occasionally adjust rotation (speed of orientation) while it may be changing the orientation itself. within the dynamic kinematics type, the code multiplies the speed by way of the acceleration rather than simply easily including the acceleration to the speed.

Even in the event you get the supplied move algorithms to paintings the best way the writer most likely meant, there are nonetheless concerns that are not thought of. I will not get into an excessive amount of element yet an instance is the "Arrive" habit. It does not paintings adequately as the bot by no means arrives at it is aim. 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 causes are beautiful instantly foward, and that i admit i have never learn the whole e-book but. I simply imagine it truly is beautiful unacceptable to submit whatever with such a lot of blunders within the pseudo-code.

There are people with whom I have worked closely who have had a more direct influence on my AI journey.
