comment MonoGame: Draw thousands of quads without hardware instancing
@mklingen Really? I was going off of remembering the libraries autor tweeting that it was working, I'll see if I can dig up that tweet.

comment Movement on objects in 2D tile/grid based game
@StephaneHockenhull Really? You read the question and came to the conclusion that the answer solves the proposed problem? OP wants to be able to crouch, jump, and differentiate between cliffs, slopes, and overhangs. This creates a multitude of edge cases and would require knowing many more properties than just throwing a height onto each tile. The answer is simple because it doesn't address 80% of the question.

FNA a branch of MonoGame that retains the goal of being an XNA 4.0 reimplementation, uses SDL2 and supports hardware instancing. github.com/flibitijibibo/FNA.

comment What is the difference between a tech tree and crafting?
@Johnny. An indirect way to get the answer you are looking for could to be to ask two questions (one per term) asking for the definitions of the two terms and how to implement them.

Why use physics bodies to control something that does not interact with anything physically?

Yes but only if that minimap layer exists, it will not create one for you.

comment How to deform 2D tileable texture in XNA/MonoGame
Looks like you could simply use a spline to define the top area and sample from the texture to fill in the the gap between the spline and a set bottom. Will cause stretching/compression but thats kinda unavoidable.

comment How do I avoid going through objects at high speed?
Also by smoothing do you mean graphically or do you want to know how to handle collision detection in the situation you described?

comment How do I perform an xBR or hqx filter in XNA?
Honestly you should drop XNA support and move on. Both MonoGame and FNA would allow you to use 4_0 shaders which have much larger instruction slot cap.

comment Is there a way to use the ContentManager with full directory paths
Fair enough, seems you would just want to load them in with Texture2D.FromStream in that case though. Additionally since you would probably want to package the images with the map coping the images to the content directory to group them with the associated map.

comment Translate click on screen to point on plane in 3D space
Also the transformation matrix you are thinking of is the camera world matrix. This matrix turns the 3d representation of the world and makes it 2d on your screen. Basically for the link I mentioned its taking a ray and moving that from screen space to world space.
