Looking for a good XNA 4.0 tutorial for a beginner

Posted 21 June 2012 - 06:39 PM

Hello all, I've been searching for a good XNA 4.0 tutorial, and have found nothing, I've searched Google many times, and have looked forums, but can't seen to have any luck finding any, can anyone point me to a good XNA tutorial they might know? Thanks.

Moved to XNA.

Have you checked out the Game Programming tutorials section on DIC?

I presume you're looking for 2D tutorials.

I've never gone through Riemer's 2D stuff, but his 3D stuff is pretty good. Here's the 2D stuff:

http://www.riemers.n...rp/series2d.php

Just be aware that most of his stuff is XNA 3.0 which only works with Visual C# 2008. XNA 4.0 only works with Visual C# 1010.

There are quite a few XNA 3.0 books out there, most of which are probably pretty good.

And if you want to do 3D, Riemer's stuff is pretty good. And I've been putting together 3D tutorials at XNA3D101.com.

Riemer actually has his tutorials built for XNA 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0. The link you provided, links to the 4.0 version of the 2D series. His tutorials are definitely great for beginners, but without theNewb1e giving us a more specific area of XNA Development that they want a tutorial for, it's hard to provide quality responses.

BBeck has started his own blog recently with some 3D tutorials. You might want to check them out, and Riemer's site also has some great 3D tutorials including an advanced terrain series that gets into using HLSL for rendering.
