Ok, so I know you all hate me and all, so this should come as good news. I FINALLY got a mac, and at first I experimented with ways to run MMF on a Mac (Dual Booting Windows, Virtualization, Emulators), but I finally decided I wanted to be a mac developer, not a windows developer using Mac. So I went out and found a thing called RealBASIC. It's kinda like VisualBASIC except it runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux, and isn't a piece of crap. For anybody interested, you can get a 30 day free trial at RealSoftware.com . I have already learned a lot about REALbasic. As a final thing for TDC, i'm gonna make TDC Downloads Downloader for Mac! Ok, so maybe not, but I tried to make something like it and it's screaming fast (Partly because REALbasic compiles your apps, and partly because it's running on Mac OSX).

So, if anybody cares, you will be able to keep up with me on http://www.keatontech.com (Soon to be redesigned ... AGAIN). I think i'll save 400 bucks and not get REALbasic Pro, which means that my apps will only run on Mac OS X. I might drop by every once and awhile, but I think i'll migrate to the REALbasic forums. Buh-Bye. *Walks into the sunset without looking back*

So you were too shit at MMF coding so you're jumping directly to real programming? That sounds logic.

Oh yes, that makes total sense. If you cant get the hang of MMF, theres no way in hell you can do well in full blown coding without going through more shit then you delt with here at TDC.

I've got to disagree - it's very easy to pick up a new programming language even if you arn't very good at MMF. Fact is, there are books, articles and courses on programming languages - while there are hardly no books on MMF, plus you can't take courses on MMF..

So good luck Keaton - hope you're new coding projects are good and everything. Although I don't have/want a MAC so I won't be able to use whatever you make

lol exactly
The only reason we're really here is because we're too lazy to learn proper coding (plus MMF is quicker and easier). If you actually spend time on it, then learning to code isn't hard at all (anybody can do it). It's all the maths stuff that's the hardest bit in my opinion (and MMF isn't the only thing that uses maths).

I've got books on C and all kinds of other languages - I just don't have the time to read them and learn them. Plus I'm too lazy

Yeah, do whatever you like. Real programming can be really cool when you get a hang of it. I dunno about mac compatibility, but C++ and Allegro is really nice for making games. I like.

I can't remember what Keaton did, but I do know I despised him for some reason.

Maybe he was just one of those people, you know.

MMF != real programming. MMF is a lot easier with simple graphical stuff, but real programming is a lot easier when you don't want to worry about animations and collisions.

You'll be back. Soon enough you'll miss the thrill of releasing a piece of crap game in 3 hours compared to the 3 months it'd take with a real programming language

I think I tried realBasic or whatever it's called. It was a little shit. fuck, with a Mac you get XCode2 so go forth and use that. XCode3 is due out with Leopard.

Funny isn't it Keatonguy, before you get a mac you plan out how you can still run MMF (Virtual PC, virtualisation, Boot Camp)... but once you have it you don't care for it since you have XCode and other grander options available.

from the Apple site http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/xcode/

"Itís designed to facilitate development of applications, tools, frameworks, libraries, plug-in bundles, kernel extensions and device drivers. Xcode supports developers using C, C++, Objective C, AppleScript and Java." It's everything. Like MMF in it's simplicity but can do oh-so much more.

On a side note it would be interesting to know when MMF2 will allow us to save files so mac users can run them.

I believe that was asked on the CT forum and the answer was that it probably won't happen.

I asked Jeff the same question and he said "it's possible" then months later "It's still possible".

Of course it's possible, they just lack mac coders.
