    Uh, they tell you, "It`s free to use...free....free..." And then you find out that the free version sucks.
    Twenty bucks so you can use a shtty program to make shtty games without having to learn how to actually program anything?
    Yeah, I picture a lot of lazy, stupid people dishing out the cash for this one.

    If I remember correctly, Game Maker is full of adware or viruses. Maybe I`m wrong.

    And yes, this is a very basic program. It`s meant for you to be able to make simple arcade style games, nothing fancy. But it`s ok for that I guess.

    Seems like a neat idea- but I would think most ppl that WANT to create games, owuld already know code and such.

    I`m always scared to download files onto my computer... I`d rather just use flash and try to figure out how to make games myself.

    has game maker changed? I remember it being a very complicated program which took skill to make pretty cool games. This was about 3 or 4 years ago. Making games in flash requires less skill

    Ive been using GameMaker for years, this program is not just for basic games! Version 6.1 has TONS of features, but TONS more if your registered (like me.)

    And, if GM doesnt do something that you want it to do, then all you have to do if find a .dll file, and u can make it do that!

    It has some small problems with the built in sound file reading (.midi and .wav only) because you get something called a "midi hiccup" where if your trying to loop the .midi then it makes like a 2 second pause in between each loop, but i dont use .midis.

    Visit the forums at forums.gamemaker.nl and click on "Game Maker Creations" you can see some top-notch stuff in there.

    Oh, and if your registered then u can use the built in 3d engine, which doesnt suck.

    Sorry, one more thing...

    There are drag and dorp actions for the new people, but then there is also a built in language called GML which u can use to customize your games even more.

    I told you people, there is no spyware, adware, malware, or any viruses in it! I have been using it for years since version 4, then i upgraded to 5.3, then 6, then 6.1, i have never gotten any viruses or anything else bad. This is not bundled with ANYTHING!

    Hey, this is the greatest thing to create games for new people and it`s not for noobs, If you want to do advanced stuff you need to learn GML. This thing has so many features, and its virus free, you guys must have mistaken it for something else.
