    Your idea of "Z-buffers" for 2d graphics is actually a layering system. Most 2D engines just draw things in order back to front, completely foregoing the need for a z-buffer and making things like alpha blending much easier to pull off. A 2D layering system will not help you with shadows and lighting.

    We're using a full 3D depth buffer setup because the way The Sims' graphics are drawn demands it, despite also having the problem of alpha blending and ordering, which is not solved in our engine, as you can see from numerous artifacts. Generally (meaning, in simple cases), you will not need this.

    I'm having this exeption occuring while clicking a 'login' button
    An unhandled exception of type 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException' occurred in System.Configuration.dll

    <Global.System.Configuration.UserScopedSettingAttribute(), _
    Global.System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute(), _
    Global.System.Configuration.DefaultSettingValueAttribute("root")> _
    Public Property Username() As String
    Return CType(Me("Username"), String)
    End Get
    Set(value As String)
    Me("Username") = value
    End Set
    End Property
    Anyone who has ann idea to fix this? Re-creating the setting does not work

    I only ever worked with C#'s settings. @RHY3756547 will have to handle this for you. Have you considered StackExchange? You get fast & in-depth answers there, and you help others by asking a question someone else wants the answer to.

    Oh that site looks handy for all my nolb problems x) I'll make an account tomorrow :)

    It's quit frustrating 'cause the exeption just came out if the nothing! The're internet gives 1001 possible solutions of course :p Maybe I'll work if I just make a setting like 'uusername' and change the code to uusername'? xD

    Whell, i'l' ask it tomorrow on that site, thanks!

    Hi again!

    Sorry voor absent so long x) But i started working on my gameshizzle again, and since some people are testing it now, I was wondering if there is somewhere on the net still an extension (or something) to add that lovely old-fashiond InstallShield Wizard that games from 2000 used (The Sims par example)? I really likeit since is has that nice old fashioned look x)
