View Full Version : Javascript books heavy on text effects and game development?

Hey all,

I'm looking for some javascript books (I have already purchased Javascript Bible, Javascript Examples Bible and Javascript the Definitive Guide) that concentrate on creating text effects (for example, right now I'm trying to figure out how to create the appearance of animated sparkles on text when page loads). It would also be nice if the book had source code and detailed explanations of the code for sparkled text effects, among others, and for creating basic games, such as backgammon or checkers. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, especially a link to a book or tutorial which shows you how to create text effects, namely sparkles upon window load.
