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.


xFripperyXNA is a simple and easy to use GUI framework for microsoft's xna framework. xFripperyXNA itself is only a foundation framework and is intended to be used as a platform for building gui systems on top of it. The xFripperyXNAControls project provides a 2D gui system that builds on top of xFripperyXNA to offer a skinable gui system that also supports animation.
