Yes, I'm not entirely sure when they will be finished uploading it, but I expect it to happen soon! :)

Thanks Tank! All Packt book covers seem to be random photographs.. I'm not sure why but I guess we could be worse hehe :)

Indeed, especially considering the fact that the content counts. ;)

The sourcefiles are uploaded by now. However i have some problems to get everything running. Using Visual Studio 2012 Chapter 1-6 compile without errors. But the other ones give me the following error message:

Error   6   error C3849: function-style call on an expression of type 'const std::_Bind<_Forced,_Ret,_Fun,_V0_t,_V1_t,_V2_t,_V3_t,_V4_t,_V5_t,<unnamed-symbol>>' would lose const and/or volatile qualifiers for all 2 available operator overloads   SFML Game Development\07_Gameplay\Include\Book\Command.hpp

Any suggestions? Im not that experienced and would appreciate your help.

THe cover is pretty normal for technical books, it's either something like this or pointless vector graphics. Got ton of programming books where none have a cover related to the actual topic. I mean the mythical man month book got dinosaurs on it's cover ;)

We only used VS10, MinGW and Linux environments when developing. We're having a look at Visual Studio 2012 now to correct the problem.

Bought the book from Amazon UK yesterday but the source files are still unavailable from the website. Is the download perhaps location dependant?

You should be capable of downloading it from here: http://www.packtpub.com/support/12705
I don't think that Amazon provides their own source of download I am afraid.

Thats where I have been trying but it doesnt have any place to put in my email address to provide the link to the code even though its available for other books and seemingly other people. Weird but I will keep trying. The book is excellent, good to see C++11 being used as well.

Thanks, Nexus will be happy, he was the one suggesting that we should use C++11, and I'm happy we went that direction. The modern programming style we use makes the book in my opinion.

Regarding the download, contact Packt Support, could be that you have to register the book at Packt since you bought it at a third party.

Yeah ill do that, thanks :)

As someone who has just updated a massive project in work to c++11 I agree that it is far better and code looks much tidier and runs faster. Good work guys :)

So just to clarify, if I buy the book from amazon, will I have access to the code from Packt? It looks good, great job  :).

Yes you will. You get a download link from their support page.

Also the compile problems with VS11 is bugs that has been introduced in the new compiler, no ETA on when they will fix it. So I have done some fixes in the source code, will get it uploaded as soon as possible.

Hi. If I purchase the book from Amazon, will I get the "free eBook + free PacktLib access" to the book?  :)
