I bought this book a few weeks ago, and I am enjoying making games and such in C#. I popped the CD in today because one of the games that I am making this chapter requires some sprites that the author made. Unfortunatly, the CD would not show up at all. I'm guessing that the CD was damaged in-transit to my house. This is quite a nuisance. If anyone has this book and CD, could you send me a PM/post here? It's quite a let down to not be able to enjoy this book, especially after paying 25 dollars for it. Thanks all, Storm [Edited by - Stormtrooper30 on July 19, 2008 5:49:48 PM]

From what I remember when I read that book most of the sprites were pretty lame. You can get better one for free online anyways.

Well, I'm sure you have a point there. But I've peeked ahead to upcoming chapters (what can I say, I'm impatient), and it looks like I am going to be needing sound files and animations. I could do pretty well with finding my own sprites, but finding sound and making animations is a whole different story.

Where did you buy the book from. I had a similiar situtation with a book purchased from Amazon. They were pretty cool in sending me a replacement. I just had to send back the damaged CD and in a little while I received the replacement. Did you check to see if the CD is online, I know sometimes the author makes the source available on the net.

I think I'm having the same thing with a DVD (with files, not just a movie) that came with a book. The insanely frustrating thing is, I've used it before and it works! And it works in other computers! And other DVD's work in mine!

Once, I tried to put my computer into hibernation with the disc in the drive. I came back, saw that the computer was still on. There was a message box complaining about how the disc in the DVD drive was not formatted correctly. I don't know the right tools to see if this is the problem Stormtrooper is having, or how to fix it in either case. But someone may be able to help.

I would really appreciate if someone figured this out!

I think I might have found the source code for the book online. I haven't downloaded it and looked through it so I might be wrong. Here is the url

Thanks for looking Boolean, but that is different from my book. The author of the book I have is Andy Harris, and the chapters do not add up. I looked at the programs discussed in the book and they are not the same as the programs that are in the file.

I bought the book from a third party on Amazon, so I could get the cheapest price. Unfortunatly, that party has not responding to any of my numerous emails. The only thing I can do is leave bad feedback on them, but they obviously don't care.

Here's what you can probably do. I bought a book from Amazaon.com and the publisher was primer. I searched the internet for their number, and I called them up and told them that I bought the book from amazon, and asked them if they would be able to send me a replacement cd. They said just send the damaged cd to the address the provided and I got the cd shortly after. Good luck.

Alright, I'll try that. Waiting for a few weeks is a drag though.

If anyone has this book, could you PM me? That way I can have the files a trifle earlier?

Thanks Boolean.
