This is pretty cool.

I've fiddled around with Flash a bit, but never put in the Time to learn AS, to make a game. I suppose I'll play with this a bit and see how it is.

It's kind of funny now to see this happening, like GameMaker for Flash. Hopefully the results won't be as shitty (although it could give us more stuff to blam). It's kind of messed up though, I was starting to learn ActionScript so I could make a game in Flash. Well, if it's as good as they claim it is, I might end up having wasted time learning to program stuff.

Although it's not really a waste since I've used this knowledge...

Wow, this is pretty damn cool. Never would have expected a whole damn bbs board to be dedicated to it, though. Pretty neat.

You need to export it to a Flash file before uploading it - MFA is TGF2's own format. To do this, go to File > Build > Application, and you'll get an SWF that you can upload.

To see the SWF directly from TGF2, use the "Build and run" button on the toolbar.

You're saying I don't have to go ahead and learn Flash in order to develop games of my own, simply have to learn an easier program instead and go from there? Why, that sounds absolutely JOLLY.

This actually may help me with putting stuff out to Newgrounds. I don't know Flash at all basically, although I do plan on learning it slowly but surely, but this should definitely help users with not Flash knowledge.
