    Great presentation, Frank.  I would like to hear the history behind cornflowerblue sometime. 
  • Very entertaining & informative presentation! I really enjoyed your session, it was definitely worth skipping lunch for! And you are right, sadly there have been no more great space fighter sims like Wing Commander! So when are you going to make the next one!?

  • Very cool! Looking forward XNA-Silverlight marriage! Smiley
  • Does anyone know where I can get the source code for this Demo?  I would like to know how he did some of the things he did not show.
