A young mans primer on C# Game Development

I've become totally distracted by batching at the moment. Mainly because I think it will kill my tearing problem in EINFALL and this would make me happy.

I still don't understand the very very root cause of the problem so I've asked on the gpwiki forums.

I've also been writing a program that has many different methods of rendering a tile map, and seeing which ones best. I still haven't done one that actually batches yet but I've still managed to get double the frame rate by using a dirty flag and cutting out a per frame SetStreamSource call :D

I think I finally understand how to approach a nice batching algorithm, I just wish there was a little more code around. I'm not quite sure what flags to set and things to get optimal results.

Also I want a greasemonkey script called "GrammarNazi", it would search each page for such things as "could care less" and would correct them to "couldn't care less", the same for "addicting" and other bits and pieces. It would making browsing the web more pleasant.

I'm also thinking a little about a story generator, I've not written anything down but I do have few ideas in my head. I mean like a written story nothing to do with a game.
