Yeah I know it's down to me in the end, but I thought some more input wouldn't hurt

comment How would I create an HLSL effect like an animated “working” image?
It's a tile based engine and the levels are quite large, so I thought it would be easier to use hlsl than mess with animation timings for all of the tiles

comment Handling lost graphics device XNA 4.0 in winforms
That should be doable, but the moment dialog is called it doesn't execute the next line and instead throws up the big red X, so I'm guessing it's throwing up an exception the debugger isn't catching

comment Handling lost graphics device XNA 4.0 in winforms
The camDetails.ShowDialog(); is causing the issue, but I thought the graphics device could be reset when the call to it is made so that the screen doesn't crash or isn't that possible ?

comment Sliding down the slope
I've take off the x projection and it has stopped the character from sliding, but his somewhat sunk into the shape, how do I correct this ?

comment Why is my character not moving when applying an acceleration to it?
Ah fair enough, thanks

comment Why is my character not moving when applying an acceleration to it?
I just want the values are relative, so for example if I set the acceleration to say 50.0f I would like to know what they would translate to pixels per frame the character should be moving

comment Why is my character not moving when applying an acceleration to it?
The values would need to be over 1 making the characters too fast and the gravity force too strong, also the game is being run on a console so I don't need to account for different GPU speeds

comment How can I handle transferring a character from one collision surface to another?
I've tried that method but due to how the code is structured the entire path disappears the moment it runs. I think I found an alternative solution though

Kind of unclear about how you would do the check on the array, do you mind elaborating ?
