There shouldn't be a conflict in recent versions of IronRuby.  "Initialize" != "initialize" now.

Well making a game using Xna basically meas inheriting the Game class
present in Xna and implementing it's methods so yes it's a ruby class
that gets derived from the Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game class.
The structure required by your main game class is as follows:

-the constructor witch in c# is identified by the class name and in ruby
as initialize
-the graphic initialization/reinitialization method identified by the
name "Initialize", this is the one that is making problems.
-methods for both loading and unloading content
-an update method and a draw method witch make up the actual game loop.

So again my question is how can I call the graphics initialization
function "Initialize", from Ruby, when it has the same name as a ruby
