    I've recently have been trying to make a DS homebrew game. But I want to know if you can compile a DS game using the "Game Maker" from YoYo Games. (Not the "DS Game Maker") If so, then how? And if not, then what other simple program, like "Game Maker," can I use to make a DS game?

    Note: I don't know anything about C++, so anything involving that is out of the question.

    No it's not possible. DS Game Maker uses libnds. Commercial DS games are compiled with a more advanced SDK.

    DS Game Maker is the attempt to make something easy.

    Meh, I hate front-ends for stuff that's not even THAT complicated.
    Unless you have the $25, 000 SDK that Nintendo released @ WarioWorld, no.

    Soz about dat.

    Lol mate. If you don't like DSGM5, try installling DSGM4.9, it has a totally different layout as James recoded the program when he made DSGM5. DSGM5 Looks like game maker alot, and DSGM4.9 has a more unique and interesting syle to it. Try both, you might like it. Alternativly, darkflow.net is going to make an official release soon. It lets you make games for any system: PSP DS PC IPHONE IPAD WII... And you can import projects from Game maker and DS Gamemaker and wii gamestudio and compile them into different systems. Go visit www.darkflow.net and wait for them to finish making it.

    And both versions give beautiful JustInTime errors.

    Praise Microsoft for making error messages that alarm you of amateur developers.

    What Forum? I looked at the site and all I see on the forum is a blank page. I looked at the video tutorials, but I get a 404 error. I don't even understand how to make an account. Darkflow looks helpful for the homebrew game I want to make, because I can import a project from "Game Maker." But it isn't helpful if I can't make an account, and figure out how to do so. So, until there's an update, this program looks worthless.

    I can confirm it isn't in your head, the portal(acct creation/forums) ect seems to be having issues.

    The tech to do it's sorted. See the video on the site, it already makes HTML5 games.

    I stress again - I've put an extreme alpha online, just so you can see how it looks. I don't want any more publicity at this stage because it's just leading to 'it doesn't work' complaints, which is obvious. You will soon know when I make big developments and it starts to work.

    Sorry James, I was just trying to promote it and get people exited just like me for when you do post a stable release.
