I have signd up in the .net forum for netgore i am still waiting for my account to be opend
It probably won't be, since I never activate anyone not part of the dev team.
It's not ready for being available to everyone. Sorry.
cause i am normaly using .net for almost everything especialy cause since LINQ ist integrated it makes things easier to deal with.
Well I use the LINQ extensions, which are just the extension methods. They don't do anything but provide for some syntactical sugar. I did try Linq to SQL, and Linq to Entities (aka Entity Framework), but hated them both. So instead, I rolled my own solution. I won't go into details, but it basically takes the database tables you point it at and generates strongly typed classes for using them. I found it the perfect blend of native SQL-style queries with strongly typed data. It let me keep my query building and connection pooling system that I had before, which performs really well and enforces good query usage practice (at least for something like a game server).
