    no source, yet... but the game is here:
    http://briefcase.yahoo.com/jskunk@sbcglobal.net
    then in the game/TypeAttack.zip


    some info: I'm using fbx files(included in zip)  for my models, skeletons, and animations.
    I still need to replace my temp cities with the real ones I finally just started on. Also there is some more art and sound effects to be added(over using the voice overs now as that is all I've added so far), as well as the type attack theme song(its good to have friends in a band). And I need to do some more work on the wpm counter and adjust the levels settings.


    Please let me know if the game works for you. Works fine on my PC, but I get an occasional memory error on exit on my laptop?
    Also I'm not that fast a typer so if you can let me know have far you get on levels 4 and 5, that be great.

    For as little time as I've been able to spend on this I am amazed how much you can get done with XNA. Especially since I've never written games or C# before game studio express. Its a great setup, and I can't wait to see what games people get done for the 360!   Thanks MS.

  • That's pretty cool.  I look forward to seeing the source code at some point.

  • This is a very cool game.  It would be good for people who are learning to type or for people who want to improve their GWAM.

    I did encounter one bug, however.  The program closed during round 9 of level 2.  Other than that it's really good.

  • Not that bad of a game, it crashed on me on the highest setting. I would feature it but the download link is not reliable. I can host if if you give me the ok.
