Default !!Important!! Regarding Zune 3.0 and XNA

To start with I know this is improper and I apoligize.

I was worried when I could not deploy to my Zune with XNA anymore, so I did some research. XNA 3.0 CTP does not work with Zune 3.0 as you know, but the release of XNA 3.0 BETA will come out within a week. This will delay us slightly, but programming on the Zune is not over. See the following sites for more information.

but, we have to uninstall and reinstall each game manually, which is gona be annyoing if u have a lot of games. What i really want to know is, will RIG still work after the XNA update, because if not, then its even more work to reinstall all those games

Currently it doesn't. I'll be working to change that however.

If our games will end up working with XNA Beta.. I think it's a big step forward because I've noticed that you can now exit games to the menu, rather than soft resetting the device, which is just awesome.

That explains it. I was wondering why after I upgraded to 3.0 I couldn't get xna to connect to it. How will I know when the beta is out so I can get some games?

You should to see it. Its very annoying

XNA Creators Club Online - xna game studio 3.0 beta

XNA Creators Club Online - xna game studio 3.0 beta readme

We have to upgrade each game copying and pasting the code, at least so far.

i got xna 3 beta and you cant deploy old games it has to be made for the beta but i bet its a easy fix (i got alien game on it from MS)
if the game is all ready on the zune it will update it ( it did that to my MS alien game) in C# it says how to fix games to work (i cant make games im dumb but i now its a easy fix and that all old games should work) hope this helps

Update: here is a online readme that has game fixs (1.2)

I'll do it tomorrow, lol.

That won't screw up the device center would it?

So zune/xna hasn't released anything to make deployment easier? Will RIG still work?
