Preparing for Windows 8 App Review
I recently went through the Windows 8 App Review for a game I am working on. What I found out: WACK The application passed the WACK test, an automatic test that tests the inner workings of you project. What I round is that the fails are not “linear” so look for things that cause other errors...

List of 5 seemingly Secret MetroRT/DirectX information in VS11 and 1 secret in VS 2010
Is it me, or does it seem like the DirectX 11 tutorials are somewhat lacking? Of course it is me. My aluminum foil hat slipped down over my eyes. Now that the Windows 8 Customer Review and VS 11 Beta versions get more in sync, there is more material, but generally it is in a number...

Hey what happened to the RichTextBox in WinRT/Metro XAML? There is a RichTextBlock, but not RichTextBox, what the heck? Is this bad? Not to me, FlowDocuments seemed like a way to keep a paycheck coming since it just added to complexity in XAML. Not a bad thing, but just saying...

App Bars, a useful tool for your UI or a place to drown your Metro Sorrows?
Don’t drink booze when you are sad. Never a good idea, and especially don’t drink when sad and then drive. That’s bad. Dangerous. Get a taxi in that case. However, App Bars are fairly easy to use, if not to find the way to use them in the literature. It would seem...
