Is it much better than MMF 1.5 or is it not worth the $100? Would you pay $400 for it, a closer estimate considering the salary differences here? What are the new features that you can't live without?

Worth the money
(Or the beta testing for me )
One feature that is missed from 1.5 is the built-in calculator in the x/y/width/height box is kinda annoying, but for that it's a wonderful program

Indeed. IMO all though the animation editor nearly ALWAYS crashes for me in MMF 1.5, its way better than MMF2's editor.

Pixeling in the mmf1.5 editor was like having sex on a sunday morning.

I've got MMF2 Developer. If I want to make something with a clickteam product, I will use MMF2. In my opinion it is better, but not by much, to MMF1.5. It will become better in the future as more extensions, patches and movement extensions are added. (Or so I hope )

I love pixelling in MMF 1.5 but then again its rather suicidal with its crashing bugs... Im adapted to using it now, so trying to use anything other is hard for me

MMF2 is much better in my opinion - the interface is better and there are some changes which are good as well. Although at the moment there isn't really anything that would make your game a better game - you could easily make as good a game in MMF 1.5 as you could in MMF 2 (although that should change as soon as extension developers start making some interesting extensions for MMF2)

I did all my art eternally with MMF and imported. Sadly I allways Used MSPaint to do pixel art, even though I got PSCS.

I plan on getting MMF2 soon I made a post like this too a little bit ago. Im probly going to get the Non-Developer version though after talking it over with some people.

Yeh I'm kind of glad I bought the standard version over the developer version - the differences between the two didn't really tempt me to pay extra.

I love MMF2. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!... Just the fact I can organize the frame objects into folders, and organize things in layers, being able to hide/show them...good lord what an improvement. The Animation Editor is eh... I never had problems with the ANimation editor in 1.5 like lots of people here..which is weird..It rarely crashed on me. MMF1.5 for me crashed more on the Events Editor than anything else.

But MMF2 will become much better as mentioned once extensions start being released and future patches. MMF2 still makes me nervous since it's fairly new and not all bugs being patched up...
