Six's Game Programming Adventures > Thoughts on mutliplayer games

Posted 29 April 2016

My current side project is an electronic TCG. Ideally this type of game should be a multiplayer game. Making a game multiplayer can be a daunting task. There are a lot of variables that you need to keep in mind when designing a multiplayer game. What protocol will you use for the game. Are you going to go with a client/server, peer to peer or...

Six's Game Programming Adventures > Starting out: Text VS Graphics

Posted 07 April 2016

After deciding to take the plunge and try game programming there a many that decide to go text based rather than graphics based. In my opinion going text based is usually the wrong option. Most often the person is a new programmer with out a lot of experience. They've learned the basics of a language using console programming and are...

Six's Game Programming Adventures > From Desktop to the Web

Posted 04 April 2016

I've always been more of a desktop programmer than a web programmer. I'd done a bit now and again but not as much as desktop. I decided a few months back to put more effort into moving to the web with the changes in technology. I looked at Flash and while it is great for gaming it just wasn't for me. My next thought was, I'm .NET...

Six's Game Programming Adventures > Murach's HTML5 and CSS3

Posted 16 March 2012

I have been given the opportunity to review another book, Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3. This book was another excellent book by Murach and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It helped me get better acquainted with the HTML5 and CSS3 as I was still working with XHTML for my web pages and wanted to move to HTML5.

    Hey Jamie
    Is you XNA 4.0 RPG Tutorials as good as your XNA 3.0 RPG Tutorials?
    Are they pretty much the same, just that one is 4.0 and the other one is 3.0?
    The 3.0 looks larger.
    Best Regards Thomas

    I don't know how else to contact you, but would you care if I ported your RPG tutorials over to the MonoGame Framework? I do plan on using your tutorials as a base for a game and I do plan on altering the heck out of it when I'm done.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I only signed up so that I could thank you for your tutorial on rpg for xna. I didn't know how else to message you so Thank You very much. I'm more of an art person but I'm working on my first solo game because a artist looking for a coding parter is apparently just as hard as a coder looking for a artist partner lol. Anyway Thanks Again.

    Hi SixOfEleven, I'm new here so apologies for commenting and not PMing. I'm having troubles with your XNA4 RPG tutorial (, part18b. I can't seem to find/open my game.xml file. I've tried changing the filepath and even tried your project and was unsucessful in both. Was wondering if you would be able to help me please? Thanks
