Professional XNA Game Programming - Updated Code Posted

Yesterday I received updated code from Ben for Professional XNA Game Programming, and it is now live on the book’s page at  This new code replaces all of the code previously available on the book’s download site, so all readers should update as soon as possible.

The update includes bug fixes, all samples now compile on both XNA Versions and on Windows (XP and Vista) and Xbox 360.  In addition, Ben also included new support for some older ATI video cards because he’s cool like that.

Thanks to everyone for the great reviews and comments about the book, which continues to be a best seller at  If you have not had a chance to post your review at Amazon, we hope you will, and appreciate your support.

Its great to see all the conversation about the book over at the Microsoft XNA forums.  I want to encourage everyone to post book-specific questions at the P2P forum at as well so we can be sure to respond to everyone’s queries and suggestions.

I would also love to see reader’s creations, hacks and mods they created using the book.  Feel free to post links to your games at the book’s forum at
