Kinect Angles Version 2


This is my second released of Kinect Angles, featuring improved graphics, sound effects, built in screen saver and better picture saving. A few bug fixes, like for instance a draw is now possible in battle mode :-).

I have prepared two versions, one using KinectSDK-v1.0-beta2 (which I recommend for this game unless you have a very fast pc) and one using the new Kinect SDK commerical release version 1 (which I’m afraid gives poorer performance in video streaming than the beta version did and frame rate will drop). You will require XNA4 Runtime and Kinect SDK Beta or Kinect SDK commerical release v1 installed and an XBOX360 Kinect or Windows Kinect connected to your Windows7/8 PC.

Check the top of my blog for the new versions of Kinect Angles which I have posted, because of that I have removed the old versions from this post.

You must also install XNA4 Runtime from the link below:
XNA 4 Runtime

Depending on what version you choose you will need one of the following:

To download Kinect for Windows SDK Beta 2 go to http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=27876 and choose either the 32-bit or 64-bit Kinect SDK Beta depending on which version of Windows 7 you have installed.

If you want to try the new commerical SDK release click on the link below:
