Well, I think that we can all safely say that the steady flow of extensions has stopped, at least until MMF 2.0 and TGF 2.0 come out. So, it's time to decide what your favorite Extension is so far. Let's also decide what extension we'd most like to see for MMF/TGF 2.0.
Personally I love Mode7 ex, even though i've never really done anything with it, but I love the whole idea of 3D and MMF. I also like The IMAP object, The WebGrab object (or the Supa Supa Download Object), and the Quick Token Object.
I would like to see a good 3D object for MMF 2.0, and I know it's being worked on. 3D game making has always been a "new frontier" for me, to be able to make good 3D games inside of MMF would just be awsome, I think everybody would love it, and MMF may become way more popular. I think a lot of people agree that a good 3D extension is all MMF really needs.
I personally like:
Platform Movement Object
& String Parser
All of them are really useful, as with alot of other ones, but these stand out the most for what I enjoy doing. As for what I would like to see in MMF 2.0, I think in the end, just having games that have the capability to reach 100FPS will be enough for me. I mean thats the most annoying part about MMF 1 in my oppinion. I can deal with the crashing, you'll learn to get around that, but the frame limit is the most annoying part if you ask me.
Hmmm, the bad thing with DMC2 is that it's buggy, doesn't work properly for some people. But it's got a few nice features, like setting wav frequency, and getting all the lengths, frequencies, positions, volume values of mp3:s and wavs and mods. Actually I've never used ModFusion 3. Couldn't get it to work somehow. Meh.

"Isn't it always amazing how we characterize a person's intelligence by how closely their thinking matches ours?"
The usage of Mode 7 Ex I've seen in the Chaos Gate trailer was great.
So yeah, you CAN go for the Super Nintendo feeling if used right.

all the exts from here:
every BP ext, pro exts, moosock, string parser and perspective object
EDIT: forgot some of the NEW exts:
5K gloabl values (it doesn't look that helpful, but it is.)
@Axel: I have made tons of games, however, only three have I ever finished, I just ain't released them on TDC, cause the first 2 ideas(made two years ago) were lame cause of the graphics, and my latest one, just...well, no matter how well you try to re-do breakout, its not something you want to release, plus I've had alot of abandonware...so yes, I have made games lol, and they all use DMC2.
