    People really need to learn how to code and stop using .NET... It's cracked way too easily... You can literally see the source code...

    Ten bucks to rotate sprites? This is a fucking scam. If you're interested in making games PAlib is a great place to start. You will be up and compiling code in no more than a half an hour if you have no programming experience. PAlib's got some great tutorials on their site. NDSlib+devkitpro is great on its own. I know the author is just trying to make a buck but shame on him. If you're going to charge more than the free alternative, you should try to offer the user something worth it.

    The GUI looks nice at least. Maybe this'll turn into areal powerful, useful app eventually.

    Yeah, stop using those programs! After all, they're charging us so much money and we can see their source and everything an--

    Oh wait.

    Ohhh, Hperlisk_ meant people shouldn't use it for things you're charging people for!

    In that case, them trying to charge ten bucks sounds just fine. =P

    Although I fully agree with you that him charging for such stupid things is indeed horrible on his part, and I also agree that actually just using PAlib+devkitpro will get you where you need to go, I will say for those not willing and looking for a way to make a demo or whatever it is they need, it's a fast way for those who don't WANT to learn to code (Which is what the site should say, not just those who don't know how).

    Aww rats, i was hoping this was a DS game maker for the ds. I'd love to get my hands on a very simple game maker to do shit like this on the go. I mean, with Colors DS and NitroTracker, this would be an EXCELLENT 3rd "work" tool for my portable dual screened beauty.

    I might should still check it out though.

    Cause i haven't programmed since Pascal [​IMG]

    The app sounds cool for peeps like me but I don't like crippled versions and I don't pay for stuff that i don't know if it'is 100% safe.
