View Thread: Discuss the Beginning Game Development series on Coding 4 Fun
  • User profile image

    I downloaded the latest (august) DX SDK.
    I installed C# express.
    I downloaded the code for the first few tuts.
    I compiled the unmodified code for the first few tuts.
    Debug version does nothing I can see;
    Release versions fail: ask whether I want to send an error report
    I seem to have wasted the last 6 hours of my life on this stuff
    I know C++ but I know nothing about Windows programming, so maybe I'm missing something obvious, but shouldn't the tutorials just work out of the box? THey compile fine.

    Maybe I just need to find a beginning game programming tutorial that actually works somewhere else. <sigh> This one looked so promising though. But now it's very late and I'm a little bit ticked off.
