Default Im angry at game maker!

IM ANGRY. YOU CAN TELL BY THE THREADS NAME!
Alright. As you who check my website often, youll know once i get the full version of game maker, im gonna start working on blobs online. UNFORUNATLY THAT SHALL NEVER HAPPEN.
1. I cant get any money, any way, any how.
2. Game maker is too confusing for words (Its like trying to compare a clock to an orange)
3. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A PLATFORMER GAME. AND THAT'S WHAT BLOBS ONLINE IS.
Why is it impossible?
Take tiny game for instance. I made that from scratch. No tutorials, no graphics, NOTHING. and it turned out ok, except for the fact that YOU FLEW. YOU DIDN'T JUMP.
Putting Jumping in your game is IMPOSSIBLE. ITS IMPOSSIBLE. THERE IS NO DOUBT.
I even downloaded the tutorials, took the first one and just changed the graphics...WHAT DID I GET? MORE GLITCHES.
This is VERY annoying. (So much im thinking about quitting making games... I cant make games with anything else! I'm too dumb(And not hamumu dumb either)!)
I Ahem.... HATE YOU GAME MAKER.
Sorry for the excessive use of the Shift key.

And sorry for using the word HATE to express my dislike of game maker.

Try learning C++ or Flash; it's really not much more difficult than game maker scripting once you get the hang of it.

1. Cant use gamemaker script
2. Already learning C++
so far all i can do is make it ask how old you are...
Cause i cant get past loops.
Also...I want a TI-73 calculator.
Those things are FUN to mess with.
I once played tetris on it...How? Ive always been strange with calculators...
(The one i have at home, Ive converted into a virtual pet... >.<
(I mentioned the calculators cause they have a programming language)

I'm 13. I'm pretty good with Flash and C++. And I can say do NOT get a TI-73, get a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. I have one, it's way better. Or a TI-Nspire (not CAS), because that has a special TI-84 Plus Silver Edition mode. I'm pretty good at programming on the calculator and have made several games and useful applications for it.

I had troubles with gamemaker. I didn't hate it. I didn't throw it out the window. What I did was find it out myself. And if that didn't work, I asked. (note. This thread is old. Don't bmup it please)

In the case of flying, what you should do is if the player presses the up key, check to see if there is a wall at position (x,y+16)

EDIT: Though I only ever accomplished the third one in that above link :wink:

For jumping, use this Step Event:

Comment: Check Whether in the air
If relative position (0,1) is collision free for Only Solid Objects
Set the gravity to 0.5 in direction 270
else
Set the gravity to 0 in direction 270
Comment: Limit the vertical speed
If vspeed is greater than 12
Set vspeed to 12

If that doesn't work, then maybe you need to reinstall GM. I'm currently haveing a problem with graphics in GM6 Pro, so you're not the only one!

DON'T get the Silver Edition if you're using it in high school... it has the Periodic Table in it so you can't use it on Chem. Tests.

OH YEEEAH? Im 12. I'm not smart. Meaning...
If you asked me what 23X16 is... id spend at least a minute finding it out. Where teachers say you should do it like this:

And uh....I'm....Not...good....at...writing..or...draw ing..or...anything for that matter.
So....ITS HARD.
And uh....Yeah. I'm pretty sure that its not SUPER DUPER MEGA HARD to make damage appear above an enemy's head... i think (Yup. I think. But...I cant even make weapons...Oh wait. Blob bash....)
I like...using...Dot..dot...dots.

At least yours works, I can't test any of my GM games anymore because the graphics are all wacked up.
GM was much better before Mark gave it to Yoyo games. Thats why I use GM6.

No, you definitely need the Silver Edition! It has way more memory and the removable faceplates. If you're really worried you can just delete the Periodic Table app.

On the topic of game maker, I've never used it so I can't help you. I do all my programming by hand.

I don't get it because our school doesn't allow it on some tests, even if the PT app is deleted.

Oh. This is good news. For all those who hope to be as good as me, it's not 4 years of experience, it's since Summer 2006.

the gravity "engine" that sonicchaos suggested is what i always use, and it works quite well.

Is it just me or has this become a discussion about calculators and wich ones are best...

Calculators came up because you can program games with them.

I REALLY hate Game Maker. I can't figure out how to do ANYTHING!!!! LITERALLY!!!!
Still, I really want to do a game about you going through Deceased Crab's LPs. (He's my favorite LPer. I found him at the Goonies 2 LP.)
