Well, been trying to figure out how the hell to get exact to loop a sound.. Didnt realize that when I upgraded to vista, I needed the .net 1.1 framework, so after playing around, I got the new xact project for toadder done, including figuring how to play a random sound using one cue, and getting my background sounds to seamlessly loop. Tomorrow I work on adding volume variables and figuring how to do 3d sound.. I’d like to do panning, but I might put it off on this project. Next goes in the new spritefont.. the one im using now is U G L Y.. Im not really doing too bad for my first ‘real’ program in XNA and like second, almost complete game ever.. =)
