Direct X 11 Problems on Windows 8 Laptop
(Edit: Took out the major from the title. I think it was too bold)
Other's may disagree with this, but I think one of the worst feeling in the world for a programmer is to work hard on something, debug it and test it out thoroughly just for it to fail on someone else's computer. This is what happened to me a few...

It's been a while since I've had a chance to update this. I've started working on another project with an old friend of mine and 3 others so I haven't had the time to really focus on this project, but I'll try to keep it up.

Part 2 - The Preliminary Design / Concept   I'm going to start this project by doing a little design work first. When I used to work at the USDA, I would review proposals from companies bidding on IT projects. Their concepts and specs had to be good because they wanted get the contract and get money. What I'm doing now is nothing like that. This isn't go...

The Idea   What's the first thing that the we often notice when playing video games? Most of us see the graphics first and games that look good and have a lot of eye-candy make people immediately interested. Because of this, many (myself included) have been focusing on making good looking games. While I think good graphics are necessary, focusing on grap...
