    Normally I would jump on the editing part of this. However I just don't have the free time at the moment.
    How many pages long is the book?

    @ stinger
    I think it is going to be around 300 pages at maximum. The text is quite big, Calibri (body) 22.
    It can be less. It really depends on how much i want to put in.
    Dont forget that it is going to be split in two parts! So there can be 2 editors and you wont do it all yourself!


    Here is a game i have published on techpowerup a year ago
    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=153363&highlight=homemade free game

    Also, the second one will normally get the second part of the book. After i finish all the book, he will get all parts and edit them.
    To edit, you can have as much time as you want, but no more than 2 weeks after i have given the book!

    And lol, you have commented yourself on the homemade game :)

    [I will consider your option on 1st October if i need to!]

    It appears that the Allegro team has a copyright on the software, libraries and the name.
    Do you have their permission to make this book considering you are going to profit from their work?
    Just wondering.
     
    stinger608 and INSTG8R say thanks.

    Excellent point there ole uncle Kreij. :rockout:

    Without the proper permissions a person could end up in a hell of a law suit over that for sure.

    Since there are no more prizes, i would consider this thread closed.
    Please any of the moderators close this thread.
    Thanks.

    Just a note, book is coming along great. Editing should be about halfway completed by the end of the day!
     
    Aleksander says thanks.
