The complete guide to publishing free software video games - What will your game’s legacy be? Will it be forgotten entirely, unable to run on contemporary platforms? Will it be source-available, occasionally useful to the devoted player, but with little reach beyond? Perhaps it goes the way of DOOM, living forever in ports to hundreds of devices and operating systems. Maybe it goes the way of Quake, its soul forever a part of the beloved classics of the future. If you keep the source code closed, the only conclusion is the first: enjoyed once, now forgotten. [Also check out Sustainable Server Infrastructure For Open Source Games]

I’m just going to discuss my preferred ones since I think they are more useful in a real production code.

Finding the BEST sine function for Nintendo 64 - Because it's so tricky and expensive to calculate the exact sine or cosine of a value computers have to use an approximation algorithm instead. Mario 64 was one of the first games to come across this issue. The way they handled it, or variation of the method, became the standard for most N64 games, but what if I told you there's room for improvement. I bet you want to see how. You are going to learn a lot of math today and you will like it

[Editor Tool] Better ScriptableObject Inspector-Editing - Jumping from the player inspector to the scriptableObject, changing the property, jumping back to the player, maybe accessing another scriptable with movement data, changing this object, testing the changes, jumping back to the various scriptables, making alterations, iterating, and so on. It can get quite tiring, altering multiple scriptables at once. One thing that would help a lot, would be to display the scriptables member variables within the components inspector gui.
