If I have not linked this here already:

Came across this channel and thought everyone on here may find it useful.

Unsure if already posted this in here, wish there was a way to search a thread post, either way, wanted to add this here either way.

I believe there is… Search-button on the top-right next to your image and the burger-button.
Then tick the ‘search this topic’ checkbox. Voila.

This was so cool i have to post it somewere lol.

I found this snippet below.
When trying to figure out how to do a compile time type inference on another instance and store it. When within a derived class that is inheriting from a abstract base. Which meant the former had to take a unknown generic type and hold it at compile time while still acting like a proper derivitive of the abstract base. So that it could still be a child or parent node of any other type that derived from the abstract type or act as one itself.
Crazy anyways.

This helped a lot.

// infer type without reflection.
public static class TargetTypeInferenceExtension
{
    public class TargetType<T>
    {
        public T Target { get; set; }
        public TargetType(T wrappedInstance)
        {
            Target = wrappedInstance;
        }
    }
    public static TargetType<T> GetTarget<T>(this T itemInstance)
    {
        return Create(itemInstance);
    }
    private static TargetType<T> Create<T>(T itemInstance)
    {
        return new TargetType<T>(itemInstance);
    }     
}

Thanks to joe.

Not MonoGame-based, but I found this tool excellent. It allows you to detect in compile time all kinds of boxing and memory allocations.

I haven’t been able to make it work with VS2017, but works very well with VS2019.

A useful hidden gem for my fellow UWP/XBOX devs:

Throwing a copy of a thread post from earlier tonight, relating to water:

Something that came up:

Another thing:
