A history on Mage Defender

Mage Defender, Original
In 1999, I created a DOS game named Mage Defender. You were a mage, and had to shoot slimes to protect your castle.
If slimes managed to pass you, the castle lost lives, and if one hit you, you lost lives.

Mage Defender Deluxe, Silverlight
So, in 2007 I wanted to learn Silverlight 1.1, and decided to make a remake of the game. The game got a little more advanced, with multiple spells and castle levels, but still only slimes to kill. You also get Ability Points during level up,so you can spec. your player.

    I get the error "Cannot find content processor "SkinnedModelProcessor". .\\magedefender-28456\\MageDefender\\MageDefender\\Content\\Models\\ghost.X MageDefender360" when compiling it. I tried both this download and the one published in codeplex. Great presentation you did at the Game Camp! 🙂

    Thank you! I will upload the missing file, I got some feedback that this file is missing and it wont come with the model. I will upload the file now and post a new blog about it so you can find it!

  3. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
