The videos you can check out are on my youtube channel. The User Interface Progress Ring uses D2D1 and Windows Imaging Compnent which was neatly plugged in today. I'm just taking my time while I do other things.
I'll probably get a neat menu system going on eventually - perhaps a nice loading background image while I the scene is loading. Perhaps a display of hints - not sure. We'll see what's up.
Until next time - have a good day!
