Tomorrow I am going to code a Sprite class and try and get some type of game written. Probably a simple puzzle game. I have a few ideas but I'm looking for something relatively quick and easy to put together.
I just got the Academic version of Visual Studio today and installed it and am using that now instead of the Express edition. I am really liking it although I will probably never use half the features that it has.
I ended up getting caught up on a really stupid bug with it though today. Actually I'm not sure what I would call it, user error probably. I would rebuild my solution in Visual Studio and run it from within, but my program wasn't displaying any images. I couldn't figure it out, but then I tried running it directly from the directory and it worked. For some reason visual studio wasn't able to find the image files. I never thought about this, until I spent about an hour trying to figure out why it wasn't displaying my images. I was getting really frustrated for a little while.
