The Alpha Book just got an update with 6 new chapters! And the first 5 chapters have been updated as well with a few corrections and minor changes.
Get the new Alpha Book Chapters here. You’ll have to login with your email address and password you got from the Alpha Book purchase. Then look for the cocos2d book in the list and click on “View Chapters” to download the updated chapters.
Thanks to @shadex and @mrad02 for making me aware of the new chapters via Twitter before I even got the Alpha Book notification email from Apress.
Alpha Book Q&A
If you haven’t purchased the Alpha Book yet, here’s a quick FAQ because I receive a lot of questions:
Q: Will there be more chapters available after this update?
A: Chapters 6-10 was the first update. I assume (can’t say for sure) that there will be another update with the remaining 5 chapters before the book goes to print. I’ll let you know when it happens.
Q: When will more of the book’s source code be released?
A: I don’t know but updates are coming. Please be patient, I’ll let you know.
Q: If I purchase the Alpha Book, will I get the final eBook for free?
Q: If I purchase the print book, do I get the eBook as well?
A: Not that I know of.
You’ll find more Q&A at the Apress website.
Chapter 11 Isometric Tilemaps is now also available!
