By Gregory

If you already couldn’t tell from my website URL, my name is Gregory Martin. I’m a technology professional by day focusing on management and operations in Information Technology.

Check – no result. Press…

Too Many, Too Far

Before continuing, please be sure to read fully the words on this article of clothing, typeset carefully for dramatic effect. First, we must isolate the demands in…

Monogame – Working with Touch

*NOTE – This may also work on other platforms with touch as well, but this hasn’t been tested on anything other than Android at the current moment. One fundamental aspect to understand about touch and gestures is that code needs structured around the idea of continuous input. Thus, any touch recognition code should be encapsulated…
