Oh boy, this one was rough.. THE TOWER?! I think I started out with that in mind, but I guess I kinda lost touch with the theme somewhere a long the way. Although I do keep the sense of heights (with the skyscrapers/roof and such).

Anyway, after a couple of huge coding sessions, here’s what I finally have to show for it:

You need all kinds of sweet stuff to run this bad boy:

  • updated directx
  • .net 3
  • shadermodel 1.1 (and hw support for scaled pointsprites, i think)

So, yeah.. I hope there’s at least one windows dude out there :)


It would appear that it might crash if you don’t have any XNA redist installed. The problem lies with the non-opensource physics library that I chose to use; it tries to find the required xna dll’s through whatever-its-called-place where redist dll’s are placed, instead of using the dll’s i shipped locally with the exe. So, only solution is to install one of the XNA redists. What a mess.
