You do know that a game such as that is not as simple as you think? Clearly you have no click skill if you go around paying people to make crap games for you. If you opened MMF for a second and tried your self you would be lost and probably kill your self. You're nothing but a graphics artist. You should learn to program in the easiest program making program around. If you cannot do that then you're stupid, and shouldn't even be on the internet.
Hah, he sorta did; he sent me an MMF2 file with a few objects placed. That was it.
Seriously, I'm ready to post the latest build if anyone's interested in what I mean.
You don't have anything to gain from being malicious. Let the man buy his games, and let the past be the past.
"Isn't it always amazing how we characterize a person's intelligence by how closely their thinking matches ours?"
As small a community as TDC is, as niche of a language as kliking is, if you guys haven't noticed this place is getting pillaged almost daily by other sites who flagrantly rip games and either sell them or post them for themselves unsourced. There have been numerous cases of click games ending up on cds being sold in corner shops without their owners knowledge, and heck TDC barely makes it onto the first page of google results if I type in "Gridquest", and the game hasnt even been released yet: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=gridquest&btnG=Google+Search
Frankly, even if he is wildly butcher games sent to him, and has no programming skill or knowledge, the very fact hes offering to legitimately purchase rights to software places him head and heels over the rest of the rape going on here. So cut a little slack, eh?
A little better, yes, but there is a correlation between good games and good graphics in those games. A game that has great gameplay probably has great graphics, and the creator doesn't want to have their graphics changed.

I'm sure you have even put them out for free, well how about if someone buys them. Its perfectly fair there is nothing unsavoury about that.
And if anyone thinks it is, if you sell your house you must state then, this house can not be developed in any way, no property developers, must be sold as is, no developers at all shall renovate the property, even though I presently let people stay in it for free, it cannot now be sold making me money in return while you then spend money and time on it to develop it, same goes for that rusty classic car I've got to sell, you cannot buy it and bring it lovingly to nice condition and pass it on, it would be plain wrong. You see that would be plain silly wouldn't it, well the same excuse goes for not selling on your games
If you don't like it, don't apply, keep your game that you had probably had up on the net for free and just don't get paid for it, work for providing your time as a game maker to be a service for the general public.
Also I know nothing about bouncing emails, that's news to me.
Also the criticising about former projects, It is me that is left in the lurch, I am only grateful I didn't have someone above me waiting for the product, my only regret on the matter is that I would of had more money at the time to offer originally, but the people that contacted accepted that amount so that was that, unfortunately they projects wasn't delivered, its that simple, I would of loved to of had them made, but they didn't do that, and that's the whole of the matter, nothing more nothing less, what I would of done in hindsight now is try and get more money and hired industry people with experience, hiring very young people still at school using drag and drop editors is just not a good idea, In hindsight it just wasn't a good idea to expect hobbyists who may quite young to take on the responsibility, that's why I ask for done games, I just wouldn't hire people ever again from click style game communities, if I'm buying done games then that's different, I can be sure they are done, Ill give it a go, but if not ill just move on and work with a different set of people able to handle business matters.
Ill also give some advice, if you want to work in the games industry, and perhaps some posters do, then think about what you post, you never know who reads the boards, who is watching you and who may influence the hiring of new staff, either now or in the future, or who you may have to work with, or if you work with them, or who you want to pitch to or deal with, people have long memories and wide social circles and remember who you are. Now you can take that or leave it, but you will find its sound advice to follow. Its far better to be civil and sensible in how you handle yourself.
Yeah, to be honest I was expecting a much higher level of professionalism with the webdesign... I could design and recode that site with my eyes closed :\ If you want to sell your games, you need to learn to 'sell yourself' as a company, and that starts off with the website - which is every visitor's first impression.
I wasn't going to bother looking at the games there when I saw the site. I thought it was just another one of those wannabe people, really. But after looking at the games you had on the site, they all seemed to be of very high standard. Whether you made them or not, you want to sell them, so if I were you, I'd think about redesigning it, to be honest.
And that sliding JS navigation is really annoying ¬_¬
