comment How to make something happen every N seconds in game?
One has to be careful, as the game could freeze for example and ticks could be lost. Therefore one has to invoke the action of a timer for each tick with the specified delta that has passed and not only once etc.

comment How should I handle missing resources?
For release builds one could think of an approch to validate the available files using hashing to download missing or invalid files. However during development it is definitely the best approch to display a black and magenta checkerboard texture to catch your attention. For models one could use a huge ERROR model which should be obvious.

Luckily this is 2D and the plane is being projected into 3D space using XAML and DirectX. Pretty nice effect.

comment How to remove text from a command line box?
-1. Using system is resource heavy, insecure and can be recognized as a false positive by anti virus programs. Never ever use it when there is another alternative like the linked article.

Well just start making games without worrying too much about the "engine" is definitely a nice suggestion.
