About This Software

Welcome to GTGD S2 the awesome sequel to GTGD S1, the video tutorial package that helps a gamer turn their dream of developing a game into reality.

ATTENTION: With the release of Unity 5.1, GTGD S2 is now obsolete, so please don't buy this unless you'd like to see how to setup an Amazon EC2 instance, or setup a combined first person and third person camera system, or just support my efforts. I have a new series in development, GTGD S3 and it should be available on Steam February/March 2016.

S2 was made with Unity 4.3.4 and the C# programming language. You can use the free version of the Unity game development engine.

With S2 you will learn

1. How to implement smooth Mecanim animation across the network even with latency as high as 250ms.


2. How to build and deploy your own Unity Master Server on an Amazon EC2 micro instance. Your users will be able to host their own public game servers, from their own home, and players will be able to see those public servers thanks to your Master Server. No need for expensive third party networking solutions.

3. How to build a powerful combined first and third person camera system. It features:
  • 1st and 3rd person views with smooth zoom.
  • Orbit so that you can rotate the camera around the player and with smooth snap back.
  • Dynamic collision avoidance.
  • Player head tilts with camera.
  • Basic over the shoulder option.

4. How to build an effective and simple networked player database.

Launcher

S2 comes with a fast launcher that gives you quick access to all S2 resources. The launcher will open the tutorial videos, which are in .m4v format, in your default media player. The videos are in 1080p.

    • OS: XP with SP2 or later, Windows 7 with SP1 or later, Windows 8

Just picked it up today and did up to and including video 2 of 11 videos and so far it's been great and an with a most amazing price to boot!

S2 covers advanced topics and takes you beyond where S1 leaves off. So if you have not already done S1 go get it and it it first and then do S2. The great thing is right now S1 is like $2 so pick both up to lock in the saving and do S1 which will take you a good amount of time since its huge easily 3x longer than S2 and then after completely finishing S1 do S2.

Honestly you won't get videos, tutorials, starter unity projects for this kind of money anywhere. You will easily pay $25, $50 or more... He covers things step by step and completely. Not like on many websites which drop leave you in the middle of a topic and then they never get around to finishing it and go to some other topic in fits in starts... Not here...

He gives you every thing you need and walks you step by step through the subject matter in the videos.

Plus the new steam launcher the he's uses for S2 is is so much better than the original one that he used in S1 and it makes it so much easier to get to the the different content that comes with S2.

Not only do you get videos with step by step instructions, but you get complete source code and project files and notes and also exectubables and the rights to use them in your game.

So I can't wait to when I can watch the upcoming videos and learn how he did those things and compare it to how I've been doing them and others have been doing them...

I will update this review as I progress through the totorials, but so far I whole heartenly recommend S2 its takes you from where S1 left off into more advance topics that anyone contemplating creating a video game using Unity will need to learn.

I was waiting for this some time now and it is amazing. Easy to follow, and he explains things really good. I learned almost everything in unity from these tutorials. If you want to learn how to make a game this is definitely a must-have!

The Gamer To Game Developer series is one of the most informative and thorough Unity3D tutorials around in my experience. If you want to learn about how to make multiplayer games I would highly recommend this product. The first season is also very good and teaches basics about the Unity engine as well as some more advanced topics, so pick that up too if you haven't already. Being this cheap anyone can afford it and even if the price was higher it would still be worth every last cent.

Ultimately S2 was a much different experiene for me than S1.
The videos are shorter, but there's alot less of them.
There was less wonder, less new things to discover.
And there's not really a finished product at the end of the series like there was with S1, I felt a bit dissapointed.'
That being said it is still useful if you're more experienced with Unity and looking for specific explanations to something you want to work on.
It's also a good opportunity to expand upon what you learnt in S1.

Thumbs sideways for this one.

I guess I'm just one dev.

In a sea of millions.

If you want a comprehensive overview of multiplayer networking using a reliable and affordable system plus some help with the mecanime system and more..... then this package is full of well presented and easy to read code examples that are a great base to get you started on your way. I recommend you also get the S1 series if your starting out as it's got soooo many examples and pointers to help give you a flying start.....very nice work GTGD!

Awesome tool that shows how to build a framework for a 3D game including the server step by step. The project includes the sources used as well as a lot of videos to explain what's been done.

One warning though, this project uses Unity 4.3.4 (download link included) and that one is a bit outdated. Chances are that with the latest release of Unity (5.1 at the moment) the examples won't be working anymore.

This product was a direct copy of the thinkings of my complex brain, I taught everything to this developer and he knows it. You may be wondering how this is possible, but I assure you it is. I tapped into the quantum field and delivered all of his knowledge to him while he slept, he peacefully accepted this, and used it without my knowing. he is just rehashing my knowledge into a whipped up pile of doggy do do

It's pretty good content and is well worth the time to watch the pack didn't help me, but I'm a computer sci guru. but not everyone is. what I think this pack needs is to add maybe (how to blend a wave anim into a RPC that would help alot of people I see on the forms. I seen your work on guild, I was wondering if you your thinking of doing some RTS stuff like c&c. I see alot of tutorial of them, but there horrerable. I believe this would be a very interesting add to the GTGD. love the learning format, you have for teaching people.
