This is old news to me. I was even surprised you made a version 2.1 for Game Maker. I'm glad you did thought. Good luck with U3D 3.0. I will move onwards past Game Maker now as well.

@Dr.Best: So we're gonna use LUA or Python to code games? How are we gonna compile that?

Please do not ask that many questions about something that may never exist. It is pointless. I can understand that you are curious, but years could pass before the answers would become relevant and most things are not decided yet.

Seems like I am the only one who is actually surprised about that decision :D . Seriously, a month ago I did not have these plans. They are quite new.

It is cool to see how many of you intend to start learning something more advanced then Game Maker.

Well, hopefully it will work with c++, but I guess we will have to wait and see.

Good luck with 3.0 Dr.Best.

Aww, I don't want to install c++...I'm having too much fun crashing rpg maker with its untranslated rubyscript! :-/

Oh well, at least I can make a hello world...over...and over...damn...

I have a question. I have never really done any hard coding in C++ (partially because I really don't know how) but I'm guessing that U3d can't be harder than adding a weapon and separate ammo in Half Life when I had no knowledge of coding at all.

Could you just hurry it up, 'cause http://gdk.thegamecreators.com/ is looking a lot more appealing to me right now. Still. Yeah. You can blame it on my hard drive, but I just want shaders. And I like the shaders in U3d. And I hate moving on. But I geuss that's what I'm doing.

Um. You know what would be cool? The U3DDN Library, like the MSDN Library- but not.

Okay, enough with the jokes.


Hey, it just so happens I haven't touched Game Maker since I got it working in Linux! I Love Life!


Anyways I think this is good, 'cause since I left VB, I haven't had a program that worked with MSDN!!!!

Oh sorry... I just want to maybe make a living from making games and i understand that it takes years and a team of 40 to make a professional game.

Also i have no idea why i use Game Maker when i have bought Torgue Game Engine and DarkBASIC Pro...

To address a few people on their posts.

@Skarik - Don't use any TGC product. I dislike them severely, they give next to no support and fall short of their products. They truly disappoint me. I wasted much time and money on DBPro, and even though the GDK is free, it is lacking as well. Many commands have seriously no function, as they just do not operate. And not to mention, they lack the mind to even make it OOP, which I find severely bad. IMO, if you have the capability of using OOP, you should most definitely use it. There are of course exceptions, but never mind that for now.

@Electricity - Same to you. I would recommend not using DarkBasic pro or Torque Game Engine. I recommend C++ or C# as languages instead of any other. I don't recommend, however, any other languages ( perhaps maybe Java, however I dislike that as I was forced to program with it for a year ), as C++ and C# have relatively similar syntax's.

And note to anyone else, if you want help moving on to either C++, C#, or Java, you may contact me personally. My aim is xnbenny53x and my MSN is bben53@gmail.com. I highly recommend you people to move to a lower level language, as it will prove to increase your chances greatly of being a professional programmer someday. I hope you all take this into mind, as I'm sure DrBest has the same thoughts. I hope you all go on to accomplish great things in the field of Computer Science and perhaps game and simulation programming.

Good news everybody. Since many of you said that they would like to move on to different languages now, I have decided to make a new category on this forum, which will include several sub-forums about getting started with C++, C#, other languages, different compilers and free 3D engines. At the moment I am preparing for an important test at university and after that I will be away for a week. But next week Sunday you may see these new categories with benny as moderator. Benny and me will help you to get started with something other than Game Maker on these forums. I would appreciate, if many of you would move over there. If you become good at a language like C++ you actually have the potential to become a professional some day. If you stick to Game Maker you will probably remain as a hobby game programmer with few success.

Yay, a new C++ category, that rocks. Every forum I find on C++ is either too complicated at the moment, the people call you noobs 24/7 which I somewhat understand or that the stuff the give doesn't work for me.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to the new category. B)

Don't you ever dare buy anything from TGC. Their products are horrible, support is horrible and the forums are worse then the GMC.

edit: Didn't see benny respond to that. I still stand by my point though.
