I was just wondering what software, other than MMF or TGF, you peoples use. MMF is by far my favorite, but I also use:

NetObjects Fusion ( www.netobjects.com )A WYSIWYG HTML program that's really quite powerful, I use it for the non-flash parts of my websites.

3D Flash Animator ( www.3dfa.com )An easy to use Flash design tool that involves little or no coding. I used it to make www.keatontech.com and a few other, smaller, animations that aren't on the web (yet).

Serif ImpactPlus ( www.serif.com/impactplus/impactplus5/ ) A 3D animation tool that is really easy to use, and has some advanced features like Anaglyph 3D animation rendering. It doesn't have a very good 3D modeler, but it comes with a pretty big 3D object library and allows you to import DirectX (.x) 3D models. I used it to make www.keatontech.com/SKTL.gif (see a smaller version at www.keatontech.com/SSKTL.gif ).

Serif MoviePlus ( www.serif.com/MoviePlus/MoviePlus4/index.asp ) A Movie editing tool that has a lot of bang for it's buck. It includes an interface that is fairly easy to use, and has many advanced features like Chroma Keying. I don't really have any content, so I don't have any good examples of my own yet.

FireFox ( www.getfirefox.com ) How could I forget FireFox. Everybody here probabally knows what FireFox is, but if anybody doesn't, it's a web browser that's far better than IE and slightly better than Netscape of Opera. It just recently reached 100,000,000 downloads.

Open Office 2.0 ( www.openoffice.org ) Open Office is a free, open source program that has nearly as many features as Microsoft Office, and crashes much less. I use it for Word Proccesing, Making Slideshows, Making Graphs, Making Databases, Writing Complex equations, and more. I reccomend the download.

I use a lot of other programs too, those are just the ones I use the most. Plese post more below, or comment on mine.

Add Gimp to that list - Free Photoshop alternative.
Or Gimpshop for those of you who like Photo shop's interface.

Well, I use some good game making tools and run some ok apps...

Sphere (www.spheredev.net & http://sphere.sf.net ) A flexible RPG creation tool. Also allows you to make other types of games.

SLUDGE (www.hungrysoftware.com ) Another pretty flexible tool, to make adventure games. This goes a bit in SLUDGE style, so it uses objects, rooms, persons etcetera.

IrfanView (www.irfanview.com ) An utility to view images in tons of different formats, and even apply simple effects to them.

FooBar2000 (www.foobar2000.org ) A nice little lightweight audio player which supports tons of formats. It also allows you to play audio CDs and convert any playing audio to different files (even CDs).

World Creator (www.inet2inet.com ) A good program which allows you to give effects to your graphics, make them in 3D-view and isometric view, and combine some graphics in a special way. Good for making isometric games.

I'm sure there are more useful apps I use, but I can't really think of them right now.

Can you people be less lazy and post the links? I've never heard of some of them before and I don't really want to Google 30 different things.

Smeby, Flash 4 is a bit old
I think he's lucky to have Flash at all; I want Flash 8, but it's just too expensive ($800 USD for Pro).

I thought this would be another one of those-
"Omg i fund this supar good gaem program on teh internt its calld gaemmaker and its a hundred time bettar then tgf lol rolf" posts

I would never say anything is better than MMF, maybe TGF though. I know that MMF isn't the most powerfull game engine around; but it's really cheap compared to others, NO CODING REQUIRED, and you can get a pretty darn good result.

I have a few more programs to add to my list:
IM: Yahoo Messenger
Drawing: Paint Shop Pro (I might switch to The Gimp)
Simple Text: NotePad
VoIP (Voice-over IP): Skype
Online Email Client: GMAIL ( www.gmail.com )
Offline Email Client: IncrediMail
Website Host: Doteasy ( www.doteasy.com )

Well, you guys were too lazy to put in links, so why should I bother?

Links (what the hell do you need them for anyway?):

Firefox: www.getfirefox.com
PSP9: www.jasc.com
ModPlug: www.modplug.com
CoreFTP: www.coreftp.com
MSN: www.msn.com
KnP: www.clickteam.com
MMF: www.clickteam.com
Swamp Invaders: www.sitesled.com/members/Phizzy/ (at least it SHOULD be there, but I don't think Phizzy has updated his site since... WWII)

Happy now?
