That is a very very attractive price if you ask me. I'm tempted to buy it.

same here man, I was expecting it to be around the $500 mark or something. As soon as it comes out for Mac I'm going to get it. Right now I'm just testing out the trail on my old PC laptop :P

We are glad you like the pricing of the Games Factory 2, wanted to just pass on a couple of bits of info, The tool costs 59.99 and the optional Flash exporter is 69.99 so it's more like 130.00 total to be able to make games and distribute them any where on the web in flash. You also gain the ability to use the Newgrounds API object, compile Windows executables and other runtimes. Plus their are more objects available in the full version to work with...

Here is some Info: http://www.clickteam.com/website/usa/the -games-factory-2.html

Why does the flash exporter cost less than the actual tool? I don't get it.

Still, I think MMF2 would be a better overall option for most. MMF2 is $119.00, twice the amount of TGF2, but also twice as good. If you bought the flash exporter along with MMF2 it'd be about $190.00, which really isn't a bad price for what you get from all of it. :)

It looks like you've increased the size of the frame without changing the overall game size to match it - the dotted line marks the initial position of the window on the frame.

You can change the game's size in the application properties (click your application icon in the workspace toolbar, and it'll be under Application Window or something similar).

Is pure black set as your transparent colour? (Check the spanner icon at the top right of the picture editor).

It sounds like you're doing everything right, but that the colour that the object is set to think of as "transparent" is a colour that's being used in the graphic that you're importing. (Where are you importing it from, and how - copy and paste, or by using the "open" icon on the picture editor?)

Use a condition like Press "X" key or something, make sure you have object to be a bullet, then from your ship's actions select Launch a object!

Thanks, i got it so when i press the spacebar it will shoot a bullet then i made it so that when the bullet collides with an asteroid it will generate an explosion then destroy.

i have the movement patterns for the asteroids but how do i make them generate an infinite amount at random?

I've just put this up, it's a demonstration file that I originally put together for a tutorial on the original TGF2. (You'll need to press 7 to get to the full demonstration to see anything half-decent looking...)

Add a counter object to the frame, and in the conditions select "Always". On that condition, add a new action, "Set counter". Type in "Random(40)" without the quotes. You can change the 40 to anything else if you want, I just used that as an example. Therefore...

%u2022Always
-Set counter to Random(40)

Next, create this condition: "Compare the counter to a value". Compare to see if the counter is "Lower or equal" to 5. Once again, you can change the 5 to anything else if you want. Add the action "Create object" and create your asteroid wherever you want. Therefore...

%u2022Counter <=5
-Create asteroid at X,Y

Hope this helps. :)

"%u2022" was supposed to be a character from MS Character Map. Just replace it with "*". :P

It looks like you need the LAME MP3 encoder - I found some instructions on installing it here, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq ?s=install&item=lame-mp3 , and I think that the procedure should be the same as for Audacity (you just need to provide the location of lame_enc.dll in the dialog box you showed there).

May be its a glitch. Is this software new? If so maybe they havn't ironed out all of the bugs init yet. If its old, I don't know. There are always rthings that piss people off about stuff they download. I was like that when I first got Flash. Tweens can still get on my nerves.

CAN O SPAM can you tell me did you download the lame_enc.dll. I put mine in a Lame/ Folder in the TGF2NG directory and when then pointed the dialog box asking for it to the DLL and it compiled fine. IF you have done that and it still doesn't work, please PM me so we can work you through it.
