Unfortunately XNA was discontinued some time ago, though Microsoft has yet to come up with a replacement. I'd try MonoGame if I were you. It seems to be close to what you'd expect, it even uses some XNA stuff.

Well, its not building to XNA framework. it is building to .NET framework 4 Client Profile, but I am using Game studio(XNA) classes that help me take game control input. I tried to register an xbox app hub student account so i could connect to xbox and develop on that, but it was a hassle registering and i accident register a non-student account so I have to pay now if i want to test anything.

I forgot what exactly i download, it was like game studio 3.0 or something. But basically, in Visual Studio 2010 i go to create new project(Visual C#) and there are now different templates. I choose the Windows Game template. now with a connect xbox controller into my PC, I can move an animate character around with the analog stick (that is as far as i got).

Thats cool. And yeah. Heyyy! I Might. The controller thing seemed a lil buggy too. When i minimized screen and maybe i was testing my game my control turned of even tho it plugged in. Then I disconnected it, then i reconnected and it was connected as a second player on xbox controller.

I think you can handle that kind of stuff with ADDED, REMOVED, and UNUSABLE. It was a quick demo so it probably doesn't have any of that.

Normally, I can understand ignant writing, but I can't decipher that.

Trying out some different ui stuff: now, units are mouse disabled and slightly faded when it's time to select a tile. It makes it significantly easier to click a tile behind a sprite; before you had to rotate the display to get to that tile. Idk how to handle obstacles, if those should fade as well or stay visible. It would be weird selecting a tile that's floating in the air (it would look like it belonged farther back), but it'd also look weird the other way too.

The ceiling.

In my attempts to put off homework for a while, I decided to start a github as3 tutorial thing. I want to learn how to use github better, I want noobs to learn how to code, and I want to code something that isn't a fucking rpg. I'm open for suggestions: things or features to add, better explanations, etc.

and now back to RC circuits and root-finding with MATLAB

Things've just been busy lately. It'll calm down a bit in a few weeks, I think.

Then it'll be my 21st and i'll go drinking and gambling for a day or two

steam has a cap of 500$ in your steam wallet at a time, otherwise I would have sold this set too http://dota2.gamepedia.com/The_Alpine_Stalker's_Set (each piece is worth like 300-400$ right now, so free games forever i guess, I need to spend whats in my wallet first though)

That was amazing. Outstanding background art, animation and sound. I really felt for the old man as it went on, but I feel worst for the dog at the end.

Took a break from making my engine to practice my drum'n'bass skillllz:
https://soundcloud.com/stereoglyph/dnb-18-wip/s-WMi0m

Hopefully my engine will soooon be ready. One last big step is to get GUI hooks in there, otherwise I'm almost done script loading+execution which will control the whole flow of the game. Exciiitiiiing.

I've been pretty damn busy, I gotta say.
I'm still running that D&D campaign, which now meets on a weekly basis. The production quality is slowly improving as I start making fancier things and actually start putting together a real schedule and format.
I've created a small blog that focuses on PC gaming news, that's actually been going surprisingly well.
I has a twitter which I use on occasion to shout out nonsensical things.
I got an old Youtube account back with a thousand and a half video views, i'm hoping to take some of that weight and throw it in the general direction of PC let's plays after I get the motherboard in for my new-ish hex-core processor.
I started a Facebook page for egg82 (can you guess the URL?) to help centralize all of the other stuff I have - it's really just going to be used for formatted announcements, which is nice considering i'm doing all of the above.
I created an ad campaign for the Facebook page, which i'm keeping tabs on. I'm getting about what i'm expecting, which isn't a bad thing entirely.
On top of that, i've got college classes which are DUMPING homework on me.
Oh, and I found a girl that wants to have coffee with me :D

None of it's bad, it's just a heck of a lot to keep track of on a daily basis o.o

I just realized that no one will ever see the jokes and references in my strings that don't go into textfields. It's an inside joke where I'm the only one who will ever know of its existence.

I know a few people who watched Pororo to get basic spoken Korean down. Do you know if there's a Japanese equivalent that would work in a similar way?

Did you have time to look at the game yet? I really need some kind of feedback or bug report.
