Website may be up and down over next few months. I'm currently doing a complete overhaul of everything. Going back to simple individual .htm pages, new overall site theme, sanitizing and cleaning up html of all pages and blog posts, attempting to implement a new tooling and publishing system etc etc.


The AvatarDialogBoxes library is a fast easy DrawableGameComponent that is designed to draw a popup dialog window for displaying avatar text. 

Below lists the current status of the various features that are either currently working or on the drawing table. For the most recent source updates see the codeplex site where the most up to date TiledBackground code base is kept.
