    I found this a while back and have been wanting to try it, however, I have no clue what it is exactly:

    http://dsgamemaker.com/index.php


    it looks like a setup similar to other GUI game making programs for the computer. So I'm not sure. Any opinions on it?

    It has a GUI that is almost identical to the one over at yoyogames.com.

    From what I've seen, it has potential to do lots, but I don't believe it's worth buying. If I had the full version, I could perhaps be a first hand witness to tell you if it's worth it or not. But, I downloaded it awhile ago, and I didn't think it worth the time.

    I've tried to use XtenDS, and the new version called DSGameMaker, but everytime I compile the game, it gives the stupid make is not an operable command or something like that error. I was going to make an Arkanoid game, but this kept preventing me from it. It's easier to just use PAlib.

    Lol, I just tried it again last night, installed everything correctly, set the paths, and that stupid error still comes up.

    I keep getting the same thing, and the link to the fix on their website is a dead link

    It's easier to use PAlib, since the stupid error doesn't come up with it's compiler.

    After looking at the site... I've found out it really looks like gamemaker, as xerces said... Well anyway,
    a picture of the interface of gamemaker : [​IMG]

    And yes, i've got pro...

    Edit : After downloading, it looks different ([​IMG]), and it looks more complicated then Gamemaker with it's gamemakerlanguage.

    I bought the full version of Game Maker 7. I know a thing or three about GML but this just looks Byzantine.
