Hi Davy and all,
I agree with you in part, but not completely here. Yes, it is true that
developing a game using a language you know can speed up the process,
make it easier, but that isn't always the case. A language like Visual
Basic .NET doesn't have a lot of game related documentation available
for new developers. The Managed DirectX API for .NET developers doesn't
have any official documentation for Visual Basic. All of the
documentation is for C-Sharp. It is probably easier to learn how to use
Managed DirectX with C-Sharp rather than Visual Basic.
In fact, I've found more documentation for SDL and Visual Basic .NET
than I have for DirectX, and that is saying something. What I'm saying
is as far as programming games in Visual Basic goes it is not very
common or popular these days. Most of the old VB 6 developers have
switched to C-Sharp, and those who haven't use VB .NET for business

There are many VB(.net) programmers on this list. There are also C#
programmers, and even some C++ devs (including myself).
Please try to write down some specific questions, and I'm sure we all
will be able to answer them.
