Chapter 8. Ideal Technology > Integration DPM

Integration DPM

I explained the power of a development process map (DPM) in Chapter 1. In this chapter I approach the DPM from the perspective of integration: the nitty-gritty of how sound, music, and voice are hooked into the game. Integration is important because actually writing music means nothing if the music cuts off when the player enters a conversation or if the music doesn't loop properly. Integration can also make the music play adaptively—that is, change according to player actions. Let's explore the fundamentals. Take a look at the integration DPM (Figure 8.1).

Figure 8.1. This integration DPM shows all aspects of how sound, music, and voice are hooked into the game.
