So today I thought I’d try and get XNA 4.0 on my computer, as according to one of my lecturers, it would be a doddle. He was wrong.
Turns out the darn thing needed Visual Studio 2010, meaning a search onto Chrome to find a download link, and then wait for many moons to pass before it had installed. At least I can use XNA now through Monogame. Cheers Rob.
