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 Tiledbackground library is a fast easy DrawableGameComponent that is designed to draw a tiled background. 

Below lists the current status of the various features that are either currently working or on the drawing table. 

Working features

  1. Draws a tiled background in the current viewport
  2. Supports scaling

Features on the drawing table and issues to be fixed

  1. Need to add scrolling support
  2. need to add Content.Load<> so you can load a background from a xml data file
