We already know about this. I even attempted to make a DGF game, but I had a problem with the character moving.

GM is only for Windows, and the only way to make a really good game is to use scripting.

to move things, select a key to use(e.g. left arrow)and use the action "start moving in a direction" and say you chose left, select the left arrow on the screen that appears.then, set the speed (e.g. 10) and play the game to test it. oh, almost forgot- the way i do it is also set "relese key (e.g. again, left)" and set "set horazantal speed (vertical speed for vertical keys)" and set it to 0. there ya have it! test it to make sure its right.

The Game Maker isn't only an easy-to-use game maker, it also has a built in programming language called Game Maker Language, that is very powerful! So you can just fully write the whole game yourself if you want, but the easy-to-use interface just makes things easier! The GML is OOP, and is completely event-driven (which is in some cases actually not good (for example, you can't put an object to WAIT, insted, you have to set up an alarm clock! There's one waiting command, but it freezes the WHOLE game, not just the object)).

So, the point is: Game Maker IS a scripting program, with just an auxilary interface!

You can also use DLLs and other script-code-thingys (though you must register to use DLLs).

I don't like GameMaker much. Of course I do program 3D games with Visual C, so I guess I'm kinda at the wrong site, but I did do a few old games (http://www.laogaming.com)

I have been using game maker for a while. It is super powerfu. You can make games like quke and doom once your good. And with the Quka Open Source and Graphics it makes it that much eaiser!


I my self are not good enogh for that yet, but my friend has made tons of games from it and made a little cash. I like this because you can actully sell your games.

Well you can check my game maker website out, Wally Darg Productions soon. Its underconstruction.

I will make a tutorial for the new people, you think its hard? Nonono, it just look hard, see my tutorials and you will see!

-Webpage is underconstruction-

Lets just put it this way: gamemakers for complex games SUCK because each and every person has their own individual taste, and no gamemaker can ever address them all.
