Flava - .app, it contains all the files (music, drivers -if needed, graphics etcetc) in one file for easy transport, but you can browse it like a folder too. without trying to make insecure people flare up, it's one of the little things I like about OSX. getting a system back to normal after a format requires nothing more than copying the .app file from the backup source to the systems application folder. no installation needed.

@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.

While I generally would agree with that statement, even though I'm not very good a click programming, I did some very decent C++ programs, the best being an AIM-style command-prompt-based chat program. The best part is that it works.

Making console apps isn't hard. Hey, did that chat app actually work... Or was it just like...

"Hello"
"Hello, lol"
"Who are you?"
"Hello, lol"
"Stop it"
"Hello, lol"
"I SEZ ST0P U N00b :@"
"Hello, lol"

Oh yeh it wouldn't be hard to do in MMF - but in C++ a commond-prompt chat would be a little bit harder

Keaton, if you are really serious about this. Go out to a library or buy a book about C++, insert the OSX DVD and install Xcode2 and give it a whirl. There are plenty of books available and seeing that C++ is a very common language you should be able to get loads of help from various sites. I'll PM you with a few Mac development forums, very friendly guys there who will certainly help if you ask.

It is possible for somebody who struggles with 'interface based coding' (such as MMF) to then go onto (eg.) C++ and not struggle at all. Just thought I'd speak out against this crazy misconception.

SAWBLADE L@@KZ AWESUM!

 
By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule
From a wild clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of space
Out of time.

@Jimmy: Yeah, I got Xcode, but it's not cross-platform now and it never will be, the nice thing about REALbasic is that you can buy a standard version that only exports to 1 OS, or, you can but a pro version that exports to Win-duhh-s, Mac, and Linux. So if I ever decide to make a cross platform app, all I have to do is buy RB pro, not learn another language. I am thinking about learning Java though, and I hear Xcode has Java stuff too. Oh, and I think I wanna develop applications, i'm sick of 2D games, plus I don't wanna give money to clickteam rip-offs.

@Flava: I agree that the math part is the hardest, there are a lot of programming 'concepts' that you learn in MMF. So it's actually quite easy to learn a new language. Also, REALbasic is quite similar to MMF because it has the equivalent of the level editor, so you don't have to code the UI, just the events.

Clickteam rip-offs. Hopefully that isn't aimed at Clickteam themselves, because they are a great company, even if they are small. You can't really be sick of 2D games either, you didn't make any good ones (didn't look like you even tried), but I will be the first to admit that if you can't design games, but have the will to code, chances are you will do much better in application design. I have a friend who couldn’t make shit in MMF, but he decided to take up coding and he’s doing pretty well. So perhaps your goal isn't that far off. Good luck.

I don't hate you, but you can still stay here. Plenty of people around who use more or other things than MMF and are here, you know.

EDIT: I hate the fact that alternatives are being looked at by people as either "that's stupid I hate u" or "praise the lord!". I'm dualbooting, it's the best.

@BrandonC: I meant that saw-blade-software is ripping off clickteam.

@DaVince: Oh yeah, you're running Linux aren't you. I tried Suse 10.1 when I got sick of Windows Vista, and I decided that it was better than Windows, but too hard to use. I did manage to get MMF 2.0 working in Wine though. Anyway, i'll stop back here every once and awhile, which of course means you'll see a post in 2 years that says "Oh man, I missed all you guys, I was just surfing round the neighborhood and thought I'd stop by."


I just clocked my REALbasic app running at 2 million code cycles per second. Of course, it wasn't doing anything except for calculating it's own FPS, but i'd like to see MMF run that fast.
