Recently started a blog that describes how I have dealt with XNA issues for which there wasn't much documentation for. I hope it helps others with the same problems.

My XNA 4.0 GUI Library

comment Box2D strange collisions (jitter) on sharp edges
Joints have tension. I think what is happening is that when the front wheel is pulling the object into the geometry its stretching the joint which pushes it very hard into the geometry which causes it to bounce off so violently. Try changing the joining location for the front wheel to the front of the cart.

comment XNA changing color alpha
@Ofir See how msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/… has an op_Multiply function? This is why color * float works. There is no op_Division but this should work color = color * (1 / .15).

comment XNA changing color alpha
This is wrong because it is not taking into account the fact that he is using XNA and thus premultiplied alpha.

comment Windows 8 C# Compile spritefonts for MonoGame without XNA
"The issue is however, as you may be aware, XNA is very incompatible with Windows 8 without a very ridiculous amount of tweaking(even the installer its self has issues)." Not true I have XNA on my Win 8 laptop and it works fine and was easy to set up. blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2012/02/29/10274694.aspx

comment What is the best way to follow this book using XNA 4.0 instead of XNA 2.0
2 to 3 isn’t hard 3 to 4 is much more of a pita. The way rendering states are handled completely changed.

comment XNA HLSL no model textures
Post the code you are using to render the model, the hlsl file you are using, and an image of the results afterwards for the various solutions you have tried. It will help a lot in figuring out who to fix what is going wrong.

comment Will there be any more books in the Game Programming Gems series?
Really confused as to why I cant vote for an off-topic question to get closed just because there is a bounty.
