A few weeks ago, my oldest wanted to write a game. I figured a simple choose-your-own-adventure would be do-able in a weekend. Decided to go with a Windows program mainly to speed things along, but also because she wanted to see the programming side of things too.
It should work with .NET 2.0. I targeted that framework when compiling, and didn’t do anything very odd other than the transparency on the form background. I guess it could be that. Since it was a silly side project, I don’t know if it’s worth doing much troubleshooting (plus you’re not missing out on a lot anyway).
But just in case, I’m curious about your system. Which version of Windows? .NET 2.0 is installed? 64/32 bit OS?
64 bit, Windows 7 Ultimate. Could the 64bit thing be the thing, do you guess? I’ve got the latest .NET installed, I guess, but I had a hard time checking that out… in any case, Win7 automatically keeps those things to date, doesn’t it?
The game works on mine. Same OS (Windows 7 x64). It reminds me of that other (Flash?) game I played previously which was also made by a father-and-daughter team…except the kid wasn’t aiming to ruin their dad’s morning.
