Alright, I think it's done now!

- Added a contour to the world to give a better feeling for where you can and can't go.
- Added "." and "*" stars in the background with parallax scrolling (actually, those far apart move more slowly due to the perspective camera... yay for 3D! :D)
- High score that is saved between games into an XML file.
- A new ACCOMPLISHMENT(tm) if you reach Rank 6 without dying. I won't spoil the name of this one.

Some play testers were having problems with the controls but I won't have time to code gamepad support... so it's WASD + mouse movement.

Final screenshot before release!

Beautiful game, and good fun. The mouse control felt a bit weird at first but I think I got the hang of it. The little pink things are tough.

I would say what I think of it if I could play it. My PC hates XNA games.

It's not made with XNA, just .NET. So if you can install .NET 3.5, it'll work.
Also thanks, Pishtaco. Smiley

ok, I got .net 3.5, but all I get when I run the game is a window with a white screen, and sound. I tried updating Directx (here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en) but the installer said I already have the newer Directx installed?

Huh, I've never heard that one...
Since it starts, the DLLs are probably loaded correctly, so no DX or .NET problems.

But what are your specs? The game may require a Shader Model 2.0 capable video card, but I'm not 100% sure as I haven't tested with earlier hardware.

Well that's probably it, I have an ATI 7500 (i.e horse-and-buggy).  Gentleman.

I tried with 3D analyze but I still don't have a good handle on that, no luck so far.

Finally got around to playing this, and I really liked it! My only reservation is with using the mouse to shoot, as with all other PC-based Geometry Wars clones I've played; You do get used to it, but because you can't see exactly where your mouse is, you can never be completely sure which direction you're aiming in, so there's a certain amount of guesswork involved. Not much that can be done about that, though, and everything else is great!

Thanks Smiley

About the mouse control... There's no cursor because I treat the mouse input like a vector. I found that this worked the best to make quick changes of direction, like turn around 180 degrees without too much effort.
So if you give a push up, the ship will look up. If you push right, it'll look right. With some cosmetic interpolation.
