I`m back

Welcome back!

I got back yesterday afternoonn but I`ve been pretty busy catching up on things. I did get a new laptop for Christmas from my sister. It is a pretty good laptop and I`ve been trying to get it up and running. I`ve also had a few other things that I`ve had to do. I hope to get back to Eyes of the Dragon this week, as well as other tutorials that I would like to write.

I`ve also been busy trying to set up shop as and Indie developer with XNA. This will cut into the time I can spend on my tutorials but I will be working on them. I will not be working on the game programming contests at Game Institute any more freeing up the time that I was spending on those projects. I hope to have a new tutorial up on the site in the very near future.

Bixel, a reader of my tutorials, has made a couple suggestions on the tutorials on creating a role playing game with XNA. One was to have an editor for creating dialogs for the game. That is something that I will be working on eventually if I ever find the time for that. I also have some plans for the tile map editor for the game. Bixel also pointed out a problem with that editor. If you click outside of the right or bottom edges of the map the editor will throw an exception. I will add in the fix for that in the next tutorial and also make a fix for moving from XP to Windows 7 in an upcoming tutorial.
