okay, this is important. i am actually going to listen to what you peoples have to say about this.

Some of you know, i am making a platform game. well, my art teacher has let me do the gfx for it in class. now that i have plenty of time to get it done, should i:

(a) make a neat old-school game with MMF.

(b) 'port' my game engine into DJGPP and create the mother of all platform games. think Rayman+Mario+Jazz Jackrabbit+Sonic=My Game. I have plenty of time to make huge levels (as in, the entire level will be one HUGE object), the speed of DJGPP will make room for awesome parallax effects. the downsides of this: the game file will be massive. i may sell it on CD (but i will have a free download online). it will take much longer. but, i can do this.

honest opinions please.

I'd always pick C\C++ over MMF, so, B.

If you feel you really can make a game as good as you say then go for it, just make sure you do enough planning so your time isn't wasted. I don't mind downloading some huge files (bigest I've ever downloaded was just over 1GB) because my PCs run pretty much all the time, so when it's done I'll give it a go.

I knew that. The CVS store where I work used to sell the GBA version of Jazz Jackrabbit as part of our "budget games" sale. I think Jaleco (producers of such old-school classics Astyanax, Tetris Plus and the Bases Loaded series) produces it. I can't attest to whether or not that version is any good, because I've not played it for myself. I might, though. I think I owe it to myself to check it out.

 
I'm not a player, I just...wait a minute. Yes, I am a player. Unfortunately, that's all I do. I don't have the "resources" necessary to obtain Clickteam game makers.
