I won't switch unless i'm completely soure there is nor risk it's going to crash on me for no reason. I don't want to start creating a game, and then realize i cant finnish it because of some crappy bug.
IMHO, maybe because I'm a bit biased towards Clickteam, but MMF2 isn't a bad product. The patches really fixed a lot of the little things that annoyed me (except the part where they combine integers with floats).
Still... it's coz I don't use most 3D graphical effects. I find the latest 3D graphics uglier than 2D. Maybe in 20 years it'll reach the same standards as animated movies have reached but as it is, it's blocky and doesn't really provide better gameplay half the time.

I think *every* serious game I've attempted but never finished is because of some crappy bug. Heck, I even posted a few of them online for SOMEONE to fix. They just tell me, "Hey, that's a great idea, why didn't you finish it?" even though the source of the bug is in the event editor in bright red comments.
On second thought, I may just switch to construct. This community has become a barren wasteland with TDC being the only oasis miles around. But if CT keeps up with the feature adding, at this rate, I still think we have a chance.
