Yes, my surname is that longDear Mr. ************,
This bit really made me laugh:I am sorry to inform you that you may not offer the game to our licensees or anyone else.
Either way, we have already developed a game which we will use.
We wish you succes in any further game you may develop (as long as it does not infringe upon Endemol's rights).

Watch this space ........I think you're smart not trying to sell/give it away right now, given the IP
stuff. I do think it's cool that non professional programmers like you are
developing for our platform and would like to see more apps out
there since that brings more users to WM devices, which brings more devs,
more users, etc...
My only advice is if you ever want to sell it in the US to get a picture of
Howie Mandell rather than that "random British person" and figure out how to
get your keyboard to spit out a "$" .
Good luck with the app.

'Inner Circle' :sign0095: I wish :-(Taxi,
many times I've tried to email microsoft about the lack of Plot fn in .Net librarys
never had reply but mayb never got to right person.
given ur contacts in the 'inner circle' do u have a contact email add for someone involed in the .Net lib design?
Neither have anything to do with .NET. Java is a sort of competitor in that it is based on a Virtual Machine but .NET has a much broader sweep of intended use. Microsoft Silverlight, a sort of Flash competitor is based upon a stripped down .NET Common Language Runtime. If you Google around and search Wikipedia you will find out a lot about these technologies.do these languages go via .NET libs or do they communicate with Windows more directly?
You keep banging on about .NET when you should really be talking about B4ppc. .NET has a rich graphic environment offering a subset of DirectX, Direct3D and GDI on the device. GDI+ and full Mmanaged DirectXx is available for .NET on the desktop but DirectX is deprecated and replaced by XNA on the desktop and Xbox360. These environments are extremely capable and can provide world class graphics capabilities. Most of that is not exposed in B4ppc to keep things simple. There is a steep learning curve to use these environments to their full.Im trying to figure out how Java can do a plot(x,y) if there is no .NET command like that?
You are totally wrong and appear to be totally ignorant of the Windows architecture. I don't know why you keep referring to .NET capability, you are not interacting with .NET you are interacting with B4ppc which exposes a simplified sub-set of .NET. You cannot see what else is implemented in .NET outside of B4ppc because it is not exposed.Correct me if Im wrong? I just thought there was only Compact .Net on the Windows Mobile OS and thats why I wanted a PLOT function in .NET
Wrong. I already told you the device can do DirectX and Direct3D - albeit only to DirectX8 standards as the devices lack hardware accelerated graphics on which DirectX9 relies.directX / 3D Wizrdary or whatever is only for the desktop???
