Hello everyone, im new around here although iv’e been making computer games since 2001. I used to use TGF quite a bit and I was under the impression I could get one of my games on the daily click (since it’s primarily a click-team promotional site), unfortunately this initial motive now proves more elusive. Nonetheless, if you enjoy computer games take a look at my site and try a few of the games, entirely free of course.
I would have to agree with both those statements. Unfortunately I do not have time at the moment to update the site. Right now I’m working on someone else’s website so my own will have to wait a while.
Also new games will be uploaded when i update the site.
Game maker is a good program. It is certainly capable of everything tgf and mmf can do, even more i might add.
On the down side, it's very time consuming since loading individual animations requires more effort than in click programs also it requires some knowledge of programming languages. When i first started making games i downloaded a demo of tgf and a free copy of game maker, i tried both of them but in the end i chose to use tgf because GM it was too difficult for me to use. This was when i was in early high school. I studied a few courses in c++ and pascal but i still didn't use GM. Then one day my computer broke and i couldn't afford a new one so i went back to my old computer which still had a copy of gm. Desperate to make a game I started using GM and for the first time It made total sense.
When i was younger I simply couldn’t understand programming languages as I do now, in a way click programs were my game making training wheels. By saying this I do not mean to put any of you click users down. To me It does not make your games inferior because you use click programs. You are still very passionate about game making.
To answer DaVinces comment about Earthbound, yes i have played it (for wayyy too long) but i would not consider myself a fan. The experience points have probably permanently scarred me though : ) The only rpgs i can say i like are shadowrunner on the genesis, moonstone on the amiga and sweet home on the nes.
One more thing (sorry i know this has already been a super long post)I started this topic to discuss my games, I do not wish to discuss GM or clickteam. This is a sensitive issue and i do not want it to ruin a perfectly good topic and turn it into a flamefest.
What does ditto mean? is that some kind of newspeak? Anyway, I would like to reasure you that
this is not intended as a form of anti-klick subversive propaganda.
All I am saying is that from a position of considerable experience I can say with full certainty that anything I was able to script using “click” programs I am able to code using game maker to achieve perfect results. If you haven’t yet reached this stage or you don't care to then I do not blame you.
If you don’t believe this is possible that is fine, except this isn’t a matter of “faith” this is a matter of experience. Also you have ignored my request to stay on topic. How conscientious of you.
