Well, I thought I had this all figured out, and I got my shockwave added to the pc version.. and it works! But.. Im using the same code for the 360 & pc versions.. now the key here is on the pc, Im adding letterboxing, while on the 360, im defaulting to 1280 x 720 and letting the xbox scale it. So, I got the rendertarget and effect going great on the pc, it ignores the letterbox and only draws the effect on the play area.. but the 360, well, it turns the screen purplish… it doesnt crash, it just turns it purplish.. dammit.. No clue where I’m going wrong either.. Ah well. I’ll take a break and come back to it later.. 

And I think.. I dont like my new HUD… I hate it when I have to change something, cuz then I end up doing it over 5x…
