Has anyone else had all these ideas, but can never seem to get any work done on them? Any work on anything klik related? I have. Anyone got any ideas on how to keep working on something?

My problem stems from three things.
1. Lack of GFX - This kills so many of my projects, I'm getting better at spriting; but I'm still no artist.

2. Poorly though ideas - Not having planned anything out, I attempt to "freestyle" a game, only to have it not work the way I wanted, cause I didn't plan anything out; was a vague idea to begin with.

3. My coding improves - Which means that the project I just spent months working on is now a steaming pile of turd in my eyes, cause my coding has moved so far above it.

3a BUGS! - Crash bugs have killed many projects of mine, both versions of hellhouse (the top down doom one, and the Smash TV style one) I'm mostly pissed because these crash bugs are not my fault, as there are no active object leaks, and they tend to happen at arbitrary times (non repeatable), this is unfortunately, a problem of the medium I use (TGF). But I do have a tendancy to push TGF for all it's worth.

well that's me! i always get these really good ideas, i start making the game, i know how it should be done, but i never finish them, and then i start on something else.

but sometimes i just force myself to only work on one project, and that's when you see more stars appearing under my avatar

Everything Shab said, except replace #1 with just Animation, I'm not great at animation plus I'm lazy. I've especially always had trouble with walking animation, but I've got a bit better recently.

I'm thinking of trying out Dark Basic, once I'm done with SS3. Cause, there's some ideas I have that wouldn't work out with MMF (in fact, I'm not sure if they will work out with Dark Basic EITHER). Tilebased level editing for example.

Make some more box arts damnit!

If you use the array in MMF you could do tile based map making (a skill I learned from my calculator programming days)

Bugs fuck up lots of games. And the longer and bigger the game gets, the greater is the chance to get bugs.

My problem is that I have unrestricted access to the Internet from this computer (my University room), so forums tend to distract from any MMF work. When I'm at home I get far more done.

Wow... that list sums it up pretty well.

And it's VERY possible to do tile-based games and level editing... with the right objects, of course.

My only problem is I keep having ideas, and I can only work on a project until I get a better idea and get distracted.
Plus what Wong said.
