comment XNA's GameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds isn't working as expected
"The correct way to structure pretty much any game is to have a strict separation between drawing and updating code. Both share the same state information, but their responsibilities are very different: Update reads inputs, modifies the game state, and never touches the graphics device. Draw reads but does not modifiy the game state, and has no access to inputs" Also credited to Shawn Hargreaves.

It sounds like you are putting logic code in the Draw function instead of the Update function. The update function gets called a set number of times (as dictated by the TargetElapsedTime) even if that requires dropping Draw calls.

comment XNA Advanced font rendering (outline, shadows, etc)
The best thing to do (unless you need the effect to be dynamic) is to use a sprite texture and just edit the image directly. See dylanwilson.net/bmfont-rendering-with-monogame-extended.

comment Can I use a BlendState object to emulate a draw call's blending color?
Additive blending should do what you are trying to achieve.

comment How to get rid of jerky movement in scrolling? C# / XNA
Try graphics.IsFullScreen = true; otherwise the issue is most likely due to the GPU being shared.

comment Change in direction should slow down object and accelerate in new heading (2D grid-based)
Look into basic 2d physics. Sounds like all you need to do is apply acceleration to you velocity vector.

comment What's the economical design difference for a global auction house or seperate auction traders?
I do not know enough about ESO to tray and answer the question. However, I can go in great depth about the EVE Online economy and how the economy would change if there was a single point of buying/selling. Would that be on topic?

comment In MonoGame, how can I disable font anti-aliasing?
@asafafas XNA fonts are simply images. Load the image file in photoshop, set the smoothing to none, then load it up in your content project.See web.archive.org/web/20140812180813/http://www.nubik.com/….

comment In MonoGame, how can I disable font anti-aliasing?
What does the font actually look like? Are you hoping for a way to make a regular font look like the one on the bottom? If you have the text on the bottom as a font and are drawing it without re-sizing it then it should look like the text on the bottom.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because question is not about game development.

comment How can I use XNA with Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows?
The above worked fine for me on Windows 8. However since XNA is no longer supported I would recommend MonoGame or (My personal favorite)FNA as an alternative. Identical framework so all XNA tutorials would still be applicable. github.com/flibitijibibo/FNA

comment Apply shader to only a part of a sprite
@Silveor Uploading an example is awesome. I would recommend uploading it to Github since it allows people to view and reference the code w/o downloading it.

comment How do I implement realistic recovery from weapon recoil?
@FrontEnd From a few minuets of googling it appears both COD and BF use an acceleration based system for both the recoil and the recovery so I would assume the unit is radians/(seconds^2). Also the recovery acceleration increases over time though it never quite matches the recoil acceleration.

@William'MindWorX'Mariager That works only if the sort mode is SpriteSortMode.Immediate.
