Shogo Enemy Integration Document
- Shawn "ARTMAN" LeBlanc teaches us how to add baddies to Shogo. This document discusses the procedure of integrating a new enemy class in the Shogo source code. It doesn't concern itself with weapons, or effects and it doesn't
concern itself with actually coding the behavior of a new enemy. It only concerns itself with all the changes you have to make into the engine to make your new enemy
available in the game. Programming the actions of an enemy would probably the subject of a future tutorial, and maybe a series of tutorials.
Client-Side Console Commands

Adding New Surfaces to Shogo
- Bunghole teaches some more cool stuff on Shogo. This tutorial will explain how to make, update, and display new surfaces in shogo. I have also included 2 updated files (ClientInfoMgr.cpp and .h) that you can
replace the standard ones in shogo with, and it will work.
Adding New Messages to Shogo
- Bunghole teaches even more cool stuff on Shogo. If you haven't yet worked with messages, it basically works like this: Every update on the client side, it sends a message to the server. The serevr then deals with
that information, and sends messages back to the client. Things like your health/armor are stored on the server. If you get shot, the server sends you a message
telling you what your new health is. There are MANY different kinda of messages, but all of them are fairly similar and easy to understand.
