Working on my Buzz
I know...witty. So I bit the bullet and ordered the XNA Xtreme 101 bundle from 3D Buzz today. I've been making my way through the introductory portion that they have up on the website and am really enjoying the host's teaching stile and really feel myself grasping the information in a way that I hadn't before. I guess I'm just one of those people that learn better by following along with a video, rather than reading in a book. I did, however, hit one snag. Not one hour after ordering the videos did I run into a problem that didn't let something display the way I wanted it to...or at all. I've posted on the forum so I'm hoping the community will be able to help me out with that.
In other news, I was trying to figure out a simple punch combination for the player character and it wasn't working out the way I wanted it to. I think my problem is trying to keep the "wind up" and punch interesting while keeping the character in profile. Its just not a real dynamic angle to draw in so everything looks weak. I might have to go pull some reference to figure out what I want to do.
