Installing XNA to C#

Recommended Posts

Big Ky    124
As you can guess I am a beginner, seeing as I'm having trouble just in installing stuff >.< haha. I have Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Express. Went to XNA website, followed the instructions, did the download, and then it says to open Visual C# up through Microsoft XNA Game Studio. But, I don't even have that. The only thing the download gave me was XNA Game Studio Device Center. What did I do wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

When you install XNA game studio, you are able to create Windows game (X.0) proyects.
I think you downloaded the XNA game studio 4.0, so go to Visual C#, then File -> New proyect. Now choose "Windows Game (4.0)". Give it a name, and the specific path.
Then click "Ok".

Now you have a XNA proyect. Try to compile and run, you will get a window with blue background.

XNA isn't a program

If i get your situation right, then you didn´t do anything wrong.
XNA should be installed fine. You should go through some tutorials to get started.
In your Visual Studio, you can make a New Project and there should be something with XNA Game or something like that.

Tutorials:

Or get a book, there are some free books out there like this:

Here a pure C# book:

I hope that helps

Thanks guys! Yes I went to new project and I see "Windows Game", "Windows Game Library" and some similar ones with XBOX in it. So when I start off with my first little game and examining some code I guess i'd be typing the code into the Windows Game project. I guess I actually did it correctly! And thanks for the link to the tutorials and books! I appreciate it!

Just follow some tutorials and if you feel ready, start making small 2D games like pong, etc.
It´s just a matter of experience

Good luck and keep going :)
