You don't need GML to make games, Game Maker has a Drag and Drop interface too, making it easy to create games.
GM 8.1 games are PC only, no mobiles. But GM has separate versions for MAC and mobile games (html5). The HTML5 version is not free, though, there's no lite version. Check out the main site (yoyogames.com) for the different versions of Game Maker.
You can sell your games, yes, just make sure that you're not using any copyrighted material for which you haven't obtained the rights...

You're right, the e-mail address was wrong, I was wondering why I was getting such a small amount of spam :)
I fixed it.

Yes, an Area Of Effect can be done with GML, it's a bit harder with D&D. I'll make you an example ASAP.

Hi Peter,
I tried sending u an e-mail but it says the address doesn't exist. Anyway, I might just ask my question here.
I have been trying to find a way to create AOE damage, I'm not familiar with GML, so basically without GML I tried to do something like this, when a bullet hits a target, it creates several invisible bullets around it, so it can mimic an AOE. But it doesn't work well, if you know a way to do it, or something in GML might help, please let me know. Appreciate it ,man!

Oops, I'm sorry, it's been so long since I got a comment here that I started to forget to check these messages regularly.

Maybe it's best if you send me your GMK, otherwise it'll be hard to find the reason your character getting stuck in the walls.
You can send your file at my e-mail address (see Trollsplatterer page at the link in the top-menu-bar).

Well, I guess I could, but the problem with such examples is that there are so many ways to make the character move and jump.
I can build an example, but it's not sure if that method would work for your game. If you already have an engine, please send it to my e-mail address and I'll add the jump-through-blocks, that way you can be sure it'll work for you...

going back to your 3D Plat-former example,
if i wanted zPos to just show the view, lets say view[0],
what do i set zPos to?

That would be nice, thanks. Examples are always welcome, given that the creator wants to spend some time on adding comments here and there.
I plan on updating the website to clarify whether examples have been made with GM7 or GM8, because GM8-GMK-files are incompatible with with GM7.

This is a cool site! ive learnt quite a bit from it thatll help, but i think ill give some examples in sometime about stuff i learnt lately that ive not been able to find here. About how to make a platform character skid on ice, and swim, stay on a moving platform etc.

THANK YOU

Here's the formula you would need for that:
date_current_date() == date_create_date(YEAR,MONTH,DAY)
Replace YEAR, MONTH and DAY with the numerical values and put the line in an if()-expression (GML), or just copy it into a D&D Test Expression action (in the Control-tab).

Hey Troll I wanted to know how i make my game check if it a certain date (MM/DD/YYYY) for example when a player logs on i need the game tho automaticlly check if it is March 3 2010 or something..

Thanks

Well, everyone has a different view on which colors are nice and which colors fit together.
I'll see what it looks like if I replace the blue with the color you mentioned.
Thanks for your input, YellowAfterlife.

In my opinion, it would be better if you did change the color of tablefield outlines to 8dc63f 5b7d2c (link colors on examples page), since 0000ff does not fit well with website design.

I never even visited your website, so I can't have spammed your chat. I don't waste my time on pointless things like that.
And no, I don't have a girlfriend yet.

This comment section is about the website, though, not about me.

Thank you for your excellent examples. Regarding the tell_story
scripts. Could you PLEASE help me with the pagination. What
happens is, when you hit the up or down arrows, it shows part of
the story on the screen, however, when you hit it again, it
repeats one or two paragraphs of the previous portion on the
next view. Could you tell me how to have it show say 300
characters, and when you hit the up arrow it shows a different
300 characters...say the next 300 in sequence until the last of
the story ? I would appreciate it.

From now on the amount of downloads will be registered, in order to use this for the most popular games list at the homepage.
Remember that the older files are currently a bit underrated as for the amount of downloads.
Trollsplatterer
2009-06-03
I'm very sorry, it's my fault. I made a download-script, in order to allow counting the amount of downloads, but apparently it didn't work properly.
The filename was right, but the file wasn't copied.

It shoud work fine now.

The new update is nearly complete. All I have to do is add the feature to show images in the game profiles. I hope you consider the new layout an improvement.
Trollsplatterer
2009-04-03
Yes, I haven't abandoned this website, but I haven't been working on it in a while, now. I'm too busy for work. When the project I'm working on is finished, I'll be conducting some mayor modifications to the site.
New examples can always be made on request.

Anyway, this website is up for expansion. I'm sure that in time I can make it look more professional.

I have considered something like that, space is no issue, I have 3GB of space and though I'm using that space for some other sites, I'll probably never need more than 1GB.

I might add a new page from which you can send in your tutorial. Then I will check out the tutorial and decide whether it's OK, if it has to be modified, or whether it isn't already present on my website.

I've got a project for my work which is absorbing a lot of my time, don't expect this addition to be completed as soon as the previous one was :)
If you're anxious to have your tutorial added here, you can send it to submissions@trollsplatterer.be, I'll reply ASAP.
GZ

One more suggestion- maybe an option to add their own tutorial? (With your approval, of course)

I know that it'll take up a lot of server space, so you should probably just request a link to a site where they've already uploaded it, and link to that url.
Trollsplatterer
2009-02-08
The update is done, thanks for your suggestions and comments. If there's anything else I can do, please let me know.

An advantage of using a cookie would be that it's IP-address independant. If the visitor uses a laptop, he'll always get his preferred layout.
Ok, I'll add it to the website soon, I'll also add the username to the cookie, so the visitor doesn't have to retype his name when adding comments.

Thanks for your advice.
GZ
2009-02-04
It's one cookie with one variable, it shouldn't bother the user too much.
Trollsplatterer
2009-02-04
Indeed, I could add a warning, I might just make it an alert before adding the cookie. I would only create the cookie if the user doesn't choose the default layout.

I don't like kookies, simply because they are stored on the users computer. If I visit websites, I don't like them to do anything but being downloaded and shown. It just feels wrong to create something one someone elses computer. If I check out my cookies, it always bugs me to see the amount of junk in there, created by websites I don't even remember visiting.
I guess one small kookie with only one indicator won't do much harm if I ask the visitor first...

"I could do that, but I don't like to store information on the users computer, so I'd have to add a new table to the database to remember the scheme you(r IP address) selected.
I'll consider this."

You could give the person viewing the site the option to set the layout so that creating the needed cookies wouldn't be mandatory. Just put a little message up top saying that you can change the skin of the website, but cookies need to be enabled to do so.

And, if you don't mind my asking, why do you not like to use cookies? Because some people think that cookies can contain viruses, because some cookies come up as viruses on their Anti-Virus software?

The AI tutorial is still in design, but it has been put aside for several other projects.
- My game "Traumatized Trolls" (used to be "Trollentrauma") is being restyled.
- I'm making a snake-minigame for Alengard.
- Moderation on YoYo Games absorbs time.
