Team XNA isn’t just here in Redmond. It also includes many incredible Direct X/XNA MVPs from all around the world. We couldn’t do what we do without their input and assistance everyday!
Recently, inspired by Mr. Michael Klucher’s post about a PSD Plugin for Paint.NET, our own Shawn Hargreaves put out a call to action to turn that into an XNA Framework texture importer. This could let you add multi-layer .psd files directly to Visual Studio without having to flatten and export to other formats. MVP Matt Pettineo responded within three days with this Photoshop .psd importer for the XNA Framework Content Pipeline! But that’s not all! During that time Matt also shared a menu/UI system he wrote! How cool is that?
Finally, lots of questions surround Microsoft revealing the Zune HD and what it could mean for those who want to program applications and games for it using XNA Framework. All we can say is stay tuned next week during E3 for more news about Zune HD from Microsoft!
