    The backgrouynd is actually part of a windows 7 Theme wallpaper, Twas' chosen because it matched the color scheme

    Quote from JamEngulfer221

    I'm having a really weird issue, I'm trying to render an image at 8640x15360 and it won't go higher than 2 times 1080 resolution. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Why would you possibly want an image that large?

    Quote from Satharis

    I find it funny that people try and judge how good a game is based off what it's programmed in or how its programmed when they: a. Do not know programming. b. use really terribad coded games like Minecraft as reference. c. Have not in fact made a game themselves.

    I'll go ahead and sum up my thoughts:

    I don't care how much you think you know about programming. If you haven't made a better game than the guy using game maker then he is doing a lot better than you. If a game is fun the tool is irrelevant except in the interest of your virtual ****.

    I've seen better games made in RPG maker than by people that have been programming for 40 years, just because they can't finish a game. Is the OP's game amazing? Not really, it's a start, that's something at least. If you want to shoot him down for using game maker so much then show us something better.

    If you people want to give him advice then give him advice, don't just go "Oh sorry you're crunching my e-**** by using game maker instead of assembly, please kill yourself OP!"

    That said, OP obviously does not know much programming and shouldn't be commenting that he does either.


    I wasn't bashing the owner at all, the game is good for a second game no matter what you make with it.

    Look at the second post, I am quoting now, 'Looks cool'.

    All I am trying to do is get my opinion across on why I disagree with the use of GM for making games. But you also have to remember that I am studying to become a computer software engineer/game designer as a career.

    If OP just wants to create games in free time for fun, I am perfectly fine with that, and it is great that he is doing something more productive than majority of the people in the world.

    Like I said OP, your game looks cool, and it's great for a second game in anything. If you are looking into pursuing a career in the video game industry as a programmer, I would recommend trying to get away from GM when you feel comfortable. But that is only my personal opinion on things, you may take the path you wish.

    Sorry if any of that seemed like I was getting aggressive, that is NOT at all what I was aiming to do.

    Why don't you just block him?

    You could just do this?

    Also, remember, you are probably going to have to see him in real life again sometime in your life, so don't do anything you regret.

    On topic:

    This should scare him enough:

    Quote from HafenGames

    What do you mean that GM won't teach me anything? It's a great program for beginners.

    Dragging and dropping images for making sprites, animations, and even GML isn't what making actual games are like.

    Yes, GML is a programming language, but it is all pre-made functions built into GM. Therefore, when you go to program an actual game, you will be using actual core functions and knowing GML won't help you at all.

    Animations, windows, and everything on majority of games now a days are all programmed from scratch, because there is more freedom than making a program in GM. So learning how to create drag/drop games won't be useful there as well.

    posted a message on Some tutorial is Java? Anyone know of a decent free one?
    Quote from TheFieldZy

    You know java, but do you know how to program? You should learn both. The oracle tutorials do an okay job, aren't perfect, but are far superior than his videos. Than you have books like Head First Java and Thinking in Java, that just blow him out of the water. Here is his tutorials:

    "Okay guys, let's spend the next fifteen minutes using crappy analogies and explaining how to make an object, but also never give an explanation of what it does"

    I see where your coming from this. Never thought about it that way actually.

    But actually, I've made a lot of programs from scratch, and if I don't understand EXACTLY how a function works, I will look it up in the oracle database to see what exactly I am writing is doing.

    Quote from TheFieldZy

    No, do not ever, ever, use his tutorials. I have explained this multiple times. His videos are slow paced, don't teach you a lick of actual programming, and are beaten out by good articles and books.

    I thought they were fine. I only used them to learn basic Java syntax, and it worked out for me.

    Open Source is great, allows people to maybe complete some tasks easier, and others to learn about how the program is structured.
