    hey guys! I need you to port a game to the DS for me. It's... not coded, this game was made by Mark Overmars as part of his Game Maker example Games. I modified it to my liking. Game Maker is actully a drag & drop based game creation program, but supports coding features. I'm sorry but I cannot give the graphics as they are not multiples of 8. http://205.196.123.36/max407u72qeg/k782t43oiyukh2u/Street+Racing+DS+s1.zip

    There's a similar program called DS Game Maker. I've heard a rumor (Change .gmk to .dsgm & it will be compatible) which does not work. well, since it's similar, I just now have a new r4 that supports DS game maker games! woot! now I can port it...

    That extension change will in no way make it compatible, whoever said that had absolutely no idea what they were talking about.

    DS Game maker is from a guy, not from the people that made Game Maker, but from A GUY...who happened to use that name. They are completely different. If you hear otherwise and believe what they say, then don't. If you haven't noticed, not everyone has the greatest of naming sense.

    Your options are:
    - Build from scratch and make your own engine that is similar to what you want
    - Get someone to build it for you
    - Give up

    And no, there is no shortcut. No, there is no Game Maker converter to automagically understandable by DS.

    DSGM and GM are completely different! I would know; I use both.
