Ubik > XNA

Posted 27 August 2007

Have some free time so I started learning C#, so far i'm really impressed, and coming from a C++ background am finding it easy to pick up. I don't see myself using it for projects in the immediate future, but as I grow more comfortable I wouldn't be surprised if a large amount of my coding is done in that language.

I've also been playing around with XNA -...

EDIT: since I originally wrote this the MSDN page has been updated to mention that its behavior does not conform to the C++ standard.

Here's a question, will this code compile? (assume someSet is a std::set<int>, and that 512 is a key that exists in it)

Posted 13 November 2006

I've stopped working on my "engine". It was mostly for educational value, and I knew when I started that it was unlikely to get finished. All in all it was worth the time I spent on it, but i'd rather move on to actually making a game. I've got a basic app up and running (i'll try to get some screenshots posted in the near future) using the...
