XNA Tutorial Series

Icon 5 Comments
So I really want to write my own XNA tutorial series in the hopes that it will help others get past a few of the hurdles that I ran into when learning XNA. As always, finding free time to write these tutorials is the hard part, as I work full time, spend about 3 hours a day driving to and from work and have a wife soaking up my time. On top of...

Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, and Evolution, oh my!

Icon 4 Comments
I've really been hooked on genetics and evolution lately and because of this I've found another article that I found very interesting and wanted to share with everyone. This one even includes source code that you can download and play around with. I haven't gotten a chance to crack this code open yet, but basically it's a Neural...

XNA 3.1 to XNA 4.0 cheat sheet!

I came across this wonderful little cheat sheet today while I was browsing the web during my lunch break. It's a cheat sheet for making the transition from XNA 3.1 to XNA 4.0. I know most people have already made the jump, but I'm still the stubborn fool in the back sitting in the dark, comfortable with 3.1. I'm going to make the move...

Screenshots and Progress Report

Icon Leave Comment
So I managed to get some time to work this weekend and I've made some decent progress. So far I have the most basic tile engine that just reads an array of integers which correspond to specific tiles. I have plans to completely change my tile engine to read the maps from files instead of having these massive blocks of arrays in my code...

Creation

Icon Leave Comment
So after a little more time spent in photoshop, I've ripped a few tiles into 32x32 pixel images for a few of the tiles that I wanted. There are a ton of them left for me to rip, but at least I got enough to see what they will look like when tiled. For now I'm just using a 2d array of integers to keep track of which image needs to be placed...
