  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I just downloaded XNA the other day. It looks pretty straight forward. However I saw a screenshot from Gamespot that shows XNA having something like a drag and drop IDE. Is that part of XNA because I cant find it?

    Are there any tools available that can help amnage the assets like Visual3d.NET?

     

    Thanks.

  • Maybe you're looking for Torque X from GarageGames, a partner of Microsoft XNA? It's in open beta now, and has been featured in videos with a drag and drop interface.

  • I hope it'll be the gift to our community in the next year XMas days, in the XNA 3.0 release.

  • In short, drag and drop used to be part of XNA, but that functionality has been dropped. Beta one introduced drag and drop GameComponent objects, but Beta 2 took them away. They no longer exist as drag and drop, but GameComponents are still availible. I doubt they'll come back in future releases.
