Fantastic work! I was actually looking for an up-to-date tutorial for monogame (it’s been a few years since I used it for anything).


Thank you! I hope it helps!

Just out of curiosity what were you using Monogame for before?

Mostly just testing out ideas here and there (I went to uni to study games programming about a decade ago - which is where I learnt XNA - but I ended up dropping out). Now I want to try and actually build a serious project (or as serious as one person can manage, anyway).

Thats the same way I got my start in this stuff :slight_smile:

I really hope these tutorials are of use to you, I am mostly still going through the basics and keeping it simple. But I am hoping to get a bit more into the weeds in not to long.

Does anyone need a pathing tutorial? I am trying to prioritize, and feedback would be helpful on what is need :slight_smile:

that would be very nice :slight_smile:

Awesome! Then I will move that route.

Part 21 is up:

The one adds a Grid and starts to prep for A*.


Out of interest, are you planning on doing a non-video version of these tutorials at all? It would make it a lot easier to go back and look something up.
