They are two different technologies. However, we can transform a Silverlight application to an XBAP WPF application by making small changes to the source code, as shown in this example. [ 39 ] Lights, Camera, and Action! xaml. Top="10" x:Name="ghost"/> Once the ghost is shown using XAML code, we had to program the code for the event handler that triggered when the mouse moved on the main page's UserControl. We followed the same procedure previously explained in the Silverlight version of this application.

In this new version, we can use 50X50 pixels raster digital assets. The creation of raster digital assets for a 2D game is very complex and requires professional skills. Digital artists and graphic designers are very important members of a professional game development team. They provide great quality digital assets to the programming team. [ 14 ] Chapter 1 As you do not have access to professional digital artists yet, you must download some freeware icons and then prepare them to be a part of a game demonstration.

Now, we are able to begin preparing and organizing the digital content for a simple yet impressive 2D game. Now that we've learned about the principles of development environment preparation and digital content manipulation, we're ready to learn the techniques to work with 2D characters in a 2D game and to manage resolutions and frameworks, which is the topic of the next chapter.
