  1. I am getting the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." when I'm trying to run my XNA game. I'm basicly trying to sort-of make an engine so I load in textures using a class and manage all the sprites with another class. Here's my code: Game.cs: ContentManager contentManager; Sprite character; SpriteManager spriteManager; public Game() { graphics = new GraphicsDeviceManager(this); Content.RootDirectory = "Content"; } protected override void Initialize() { character = new Sprite(); spriteManager = new SpriteManager(); base.Initialize(); } protected override void LoadContent() { character.setTexture(spriteManager.loadTexture(contentManager, "CharSprite")); character.setPosition(new Vector2(50, 50)); spriteBatch = new SpriteBatch(GraphicsDevice); } Sprite.cs private Texture2D texture; public void setTexture(Texture2D spriteTexture) { texture = spriteTexture; } SpriteManager.cs private Texture2D loadedTexture; public Texture2D loadTexture(ContentManager cm, string asset) { loadedTexture = cm.Load<Texture2D>(asset); return loadedTexture; } (This is a simplified version so you don't have to look through 150 lines of code) What am I doing wrong?
  2. What is the UDK capable of? How much can you customize your game with UnrealScript? I'm thinking of making a game in UDK but I just need to know what you can do with it.
  3. Yeah, I have already checked out those tutorials but unfortunately, he has no programming tutorials... But they are great for learning level design!
  4. Edited to sound less dickish... Try Youtube. [/quote] I have found ONE tutorial series on programming on YouTube, which sucks and doesn't cover any actual programming in Source but rather how to setup a project... I am thinking of buying a membership on Design3. I'll get a whole bunch of other tutorials then
  5. I search everywhere for a good free Source Programming tutorial... With no luck... I've found Design3's Vechicle Programming Tutorial. But they cost money! Are there any otherones floating around the web?
  6. Hello, I want to get into game development. I have basic knowledge in both C++ and Java and now I'm thinking what I should concentrate on. I will be making mostly 2D sidescrollers and topdown games. But, I want to have a good foundation so I can start building 3D games in a few years maybe... Basicly I want a powerful, well documented, crossplatform(not THAT important) 2D and 3D language/library. What would you recomend? I'm thinking of continuing with Java to build games... But I have no clue if that's a good choice.
