tgf 1 managed screen space the best imo. Even though it mean you had to click a few times to edit an objects properties.

Ricky speaks truth. I never use TGF1 anymore, but it still astounds me that they were able to fit so much so well into that and then somehow spew it all over the screen as terribly as in MMF2.

I see what you're saying... but it's never bothered me.
I guess I'd be more frazzled if I did have a wide-screen monitor, though that's hardly a reason to spend $150 on the competition!

Oh well, I guess it just comes down to preference.

Actually it is... you have no idea how much screen real estate can be the biggest downfall of a piece of software and the Achilles heel for why I would never take a step near it. When something like a bad design choice can have such a profound impact on production, it's a big issue and frankly, Construct has a very sloppy interface.

While I think Construct's interface isn't designed that well, it's not too bad - especially when you minimize the ribbon bar. MMF2s interface is just as awfully designed.

Maybe I just got into the whole scene too early because I honestly have no clue what everyone is talking about with MMF2's "horrible" interface. I think it's fine.

It's fine and all. But it's missing the "make my game for me" button.

Who needs to spend time and money rebranding products when you have a whole community of people willing to advertise your products for free? I imagine that our Japanese user base is quite small so it makes sense for clickteam to brand its products in an appropriate way to break into that market. If this change in strategy sees the Japanese version outperforming the English/French versions then I imagine Clickteam will see it in their interest to rebrand it.

It wouldn't have been suggested if that free advertisement were enough.

I don't think word of mouth from people on sites like this is enough.

It's crazy that you can google something like "easy game making software" and Clickteam don't appear until the 7th page of results.

If Clickteam are really underselling their products, isn't that a perfect opportunity for someone to come along and say "hey, I think I can make you more sales", and take a cut of the profit? If someone has a better idea then maybe they should cash in on it.

Nice to see the topic back on track after all that talk about about ribbons!

Personally I found out about K&P after seeing it in a retail store, then The Games Factory in a magazine advertisement, both strategies that Clickteam don't seem to do anymore. Not saying they should, of course; the market has changed quite a bit since 1995, but it would be nice to see them advertise the game creating potential of MMF2/TGF2 rather than focus on the education sector, and update their website to not look so boring. There I said it!

Then again I do think focusing on education IS good advertisement, if it's done right. What is better than exposing 25 students to a Click product and teaching them the basics?

Sorry, I should've said "as well as" instead of "rather than". I wasn't thinking Selling to schools is a good idea, I'd just like to see them also promoting the games side of it more.

Everyone who moved from KNP or TGF into MMF felt a jarring shift. I was learning VB at the time, and I thought VB had a nicer interface. I got used to it after like a week, though.
