Creating your first game on Popfly

Microsoft Popfly (internally codenamed Springfield) is a website that allows users to create web pages, program snippets, and mashups using the Microsoft Silverlight rich internet applications runtime and the set of online tools provided. Popfly is currently in Beta stage of development. It requires users to log in with their Windows Live ID, and provide additional information about themselves when logging in for the first time to use Popfly.

Quoted from | I will be giving a tutorial on how to create a game on popfly. I personally think making a game on popfly all boils down to 3 simple general steps.

1. Ideas
2. Creating the game
3. Tweak the game to make it better

I will be teaching mainly the second stage, the creation of the game. I will pull in some simple functions which most people will be using when they are creating a game on popfly. Without further ado, we will start the fun!

C# Boot Camp ( Part 1)

What is C#? ( Wiki to what is C# )

Anyway it was fun. 3 letters to summarise the whole UX ( User Experience ). Haha

This maybe useful for me in the future.
//This is how to comment in C#
//This is how to make a message box come out, Message.Show
Message.Show("Guo Hong", "Title")

In php, to add things on to a string variable, we do
$des = "Guo Hong is ";
$des .= "handome.";

but in C#,
string des = "Guo Hong is ";
des += "handome.";

Notice the += and .= ?

Haha, hopefully tomorrow will be more interesting! 😀

To be honest, this happen so rushed and fast. I was busy during that period as well so I didn’t really “care” about the competition. I quite forget what happen, too many things happen at that period. I got 4th losing 0.01 to 3rd. Haha. It was a close fight. Nevertheless, its nice! 😀 Took a few photos that time with friends. Newly-made one or “old” friends. Thats why there is a chinese saying 以武会友 . Its really so true.
