By Brian Schwab

A completely revised replace to the 1st version, "AI video game Engine Programming, moment Edition" offers online game builders with the instruments and knowledge they should create glossy online game AI engines. protecting the 4 precept parts of online game man made intelligence, the booklet takes you from concept to real video game improvement, going past simply discussing how a strategy should be used. starting with a transparent definition of video game AI, you'll study universal terminology, the underlying suggestions of AI, and you'll discover different components of the sport AI engine. You'll then have a look at AI layout concerns, ideas, or even universal pitfalls genre-by-genre, protecting nearly all of smooth online game genres and interpreting concrete examples of AI utilized in real advertisement video games. eventually, you'll research real code implementations for every AI strategy provided, either in skeletal shape and as a part of a real-world instance, to profit the way it works in an exact online game engine and the way it may be optimized sooner or later. Written for skilled video game builders with a operating wisdom of C++, information buildings, and item orientated programming, "AI online game Engine Programming, moment Edition" will extend your AI wisdom and talents from begin to end.

Sample text

Whatever technique we are using as our primary decision-making system, to determine the right action to perform, is really just a method of filtering the current game state through all the possible things that the AI can do (or some subset of these possibilities, as defined by some rule or game state). Thus, we see the primary observation many people make about AI in general—that it all boils down to focused searching, in some way or another. This is true to some degree. Most AI systems are just different ways of searching through the variety of possibilities, and as such, the topography of your game’s possibilities can be used to conceptually consider the best AI technique to use.

The above-mentioned secondarysupport systems, while making decisions from a pool of options/animations/paths, are more “find the optimal” (read: singular) solution for any particular input. The main AI in contrast might have many equally good solutions, but needs to Chapter 1 Basic Definitions and Concepts 7 consider planning, resources, player attributes (including esoteric attributes like personality type or things like character flaws), and so on to make decisions for the game’s bigger picture.

Modern game AI is increasingly leading towards “real” intelligence techniques (as defined by academic AI), instead of the old standby of pre-scripted patterns or behaviors that only mimic intelligent behavior. ). W HAT G AM E AI I S N OT The term game AI can be used as quite the broad label, often loosely used when referring to all sorts of areas within a game: the collision avoidance (or pathfinding) system, the player controls, the user interface, and sometimes the entire animation system. To some extent, these elements do have something to add to the AI world and are elements that, if done poorly, will make the game seem “stupider,” but they are not the primary AI system in a game.
