Hi! I am Andrew Russell. I'm an indie game developer from Australia. I'm a Microsoft MVP for XNA/DirectX.

Visit my blog at AndrewRussell.net or follow me on Twitter @_AndrewRussell.

Spending too much time procrastinating on Stack Exchange? Or wish you could block the Internet for a while, but need to whitelist Stack Exchange? Check out my Kickstarter: Connect for a Reason.


My current game dev project is Stick Ninjas A 2D multiplayer platformer-shooter. I'm doing a weekly DevLog video series about it, which you can watch on YouTube.

My previous projects include:

  • ExEn, a cross-platform port of XNA that runs on iOS, Android and Silverlight
  • Light Blocks: cross-platform falling-block game to demonstrate ExEn
  • Dark: A 2D physics-platformer with fancy lighting effects (PC and Xbox 360)

@craftworkgames Yep - that makes sense.

comment Is it possible to change the position of a Farseer joint tie point?
Look at the arguments for CreateRevoluteJoint. Like... really look. Step into the Farseer source code and see what they do.

That means that World.TestPoint is returning null - because the user is not actually touching a fixture in the world. So simply don't create a joint in that case. (I've updated my code to reflect this.)

Not enough info. Also: You can probably make the sails from a single body with multiple fixtures, then use a single revolute joint.

@Den The Assets API (here) is part of Xamarin.Android, not MonoGame. "Assets", in this case, is not the same kind of thing as "Content" in XNA or "Assets" in Unity.
