The Official App Game Kit Tier 2 Starter’s Guide

The Official App Game Kit Tier 2 Starter

About This Content
AGK2 Tier 1 offers an amazing set of powerful commands embedded within a variation of the BASIC programming language. But if you already know C++, there is always going to be the desire to move on to Tier 2 and use C++’s object-oriented features to increase your programming efficiency.

Until now, there hasn’t been much in the way of training material to help you make the transition from Tier 1’s BASIC to Tier 2’s C++. However, finally, we’ve corrected that omission with the release of The Official AppGameKit Tier 2 Starter’s Guide.

This short book will show you how to get started with Tier 2 programming in both Windows (using Visual Studio Community 2015) and Android (using Android Studio).

You’ll find out:

  • How to use the free templates supplied by TGC to create your first Tier 2 app.
  • How to modify the existing templates
  • How to create more effective templates
  • How to add new classes to a project
  • How to build a static library that can be reused in multiple projects

As usual, the book contains many activities (with solutions) to help you gain practical experience while working through the text

Please note that this book does not attempt to teach C++ or AGK2 statements.

The guide was written and designed by author Alistair Stewart of Digital Skills. He has many years of experience creating educational material to help anyone learn how to program computers. Alistair created the highly respected "Hands On" books that cover many different languages.

Fantasy Grounds – 5E: Tarin’s Crown

Fantasy Grounds - 5E: Tarin

About This Content
An island adventure for 6th level characters in search of plunder and fame!

The treacherous jungle island known as Crown Isle was marked on every map for danger, as the verdant vegetation itself rose up to devour many who sought landing there until the infamous Captain Jared Tarin hacked out a refuge upon the mountain’s hilly crest and made it his own. Other pirates sought to take him down, but each fell to the deadly dangers of the "Red Skewer" and his pirates, or to the still-wild jungle barely held at bay. When Tarin and his crew stole the Pirate Queen’s Pearl, a flotilla of rivals blockaded his island for months, but none have dared to seize their chance. Can your eager band of buccaneers claim fame and fortune on the deadly isle of Tarin’s Crown?

Islands of Plunder: Tarin’s Crown is a 26-page 5th Edition adventure for 6th-level PCs fraught with harrowing battles on land and aboard ship, through treacherous terrain against even more treacherous foes. It includes two sets of maps, one for the GM an unkeyed set for players, , and can be easily dropped into any seafaring 5E campaign, whether in a published pirate setting or a campaign of your own design.

The Islands of Plunder series continues Legendary Games’ tradition of bringing you outstanding content for the 5th Edition of the worlds most famous roleplaying game by some of the best authors in the business, combined with amazing art and production values and innovative layout design.
