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 modeūüôā.

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:

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

To download Kinect for Windows SDK Beta 2 go to and choose either the 32-bit or 64-bit Kinect SDK Beta depending on which version of Windows 7 you have installed.
