comment Adapting tilemap algorithm to support isometric tilemap
Can you clarify your question a bit? I'm not sure if you're looking for help with an isometric tile-rendering algorithm or if you're just looking for help extending the TilemapParser object.

comment Does the gender of a game's protagonist affect sales?
+1 for the interesting question pertaining to the business and marketing side of game development. It would be interesting to see if anyone can come up with any published statistics.

comment What is the best way to generate income from mobile games?
@Byte56, You assume everyone has the foresight and will to both understand and implement a "best way". For all we know, there is a "best way", but the curiosity and arrogance of man will never acknowledge such a thing.

+1 - I've found myself building my game systems something like this, and find it to be quite flexible.

comment How to avoid circular dependencies between Player and World?
+1 for questioning the need to remove the circular dependency at all. At some point, dependencies happen. Most of my core classes (often called Game or GameEngine) is nothing but a collection of every other class needed by the game loop. Often times, many of those classes have dependencies that go right back to the core class. It's not always a problem, and sometimes is necessary and even helpful.

+1 - This is a very good way of removing the circular dependency that currently exists.

I plan on adding layering, so an array of byte's won't cut it Why not?

comment State / Screen management in Entity Component Systems
Your state/screen/scene manager has nothing to do with your components -- it resides on a completely separate layer. You can have your state/screen/scene contain your components, or they can be separate. I wouldn't bother trying to integrate them, however.

comment How do I stop stretching during window re-size in XNA?
Should someone choose to take this path, this list of wm_* constants should prove to be useful: pinvoke.net/default.aspx/Constants/WM.html

comment How do I stop stretching during window re-size in XNA?
Handling windows messages in .NET involves overriding System.Windows.Forms.Form.WndProc(). When working in XNA, you don't have direct access to a Form to override that method. While it is possible to do, it's not a trivial amount of work and would have to circumvent XNA's design.

I like the idea of a StateComponent that can be consumed by multiple systems.
