I'm Cyral, your average (young) developer! I program and do graphics design as a hobby, currently taking a computer science class and looking into it as a career. I'm into creating games and applications. Currently I am working on coding some software for my company, Pyratron.

I tend to help out newer people (Hey I said as a hobby, I'm no professional!) with their questions about and the game framework.

I do some web development and have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and PHP, but it is not my focus. I'm currently learning Java and C++, while C# is still my language of choice.

You can follow me on twitter @Cyral33, check out my GitHub profile, where I work on a few projects, or my personal website.

revised What is the standard C# / Windows Forms game loop?
The code in it's simplest form causes a crash in all applications I tested it with. Did some research and fixed the low level code from crashing vhost.exe

comment What is the standard C# / Windows Forms game loop?
@JoshPetrie I'm trying to make a small game loop to handle a few animations in my winform, and I noticed that even having nothing within the while loop, runs CPU up to about 20%. Obviously this is because it is looping so fast over nothing, but even with code, it is the same story. The only way to make it go down is to put a Thread.Sleep, and even with 16ms of sleep (60fps), there is still ~10% CPU usage. Is there any way to alleviate some of this further?

comment Spritebatch draw over drawstring
What is your SpriteSortMode? Try Deferred, It's the fastest and will draw according to the order in the code.
