Games Factory 2 is a program that allows you to make games and publish them as SWF files, so you can submit them on to Newgrounds.
There is a download link to download the Newgrounds Version which is free and only lets you upload the game to Newgrounds.
It's an easier program to use than Flash, so I'd recommend checking it out.
It has a slight learning curve from what I can see so far but it is generally pretty easy.

Learn more here.


Yeah, whatever.

It seems to be pretty good. If you look at some of the works that were created with it you can see that this thing can make very complex flash. I just saw the first flash made with this thing (or at least saying so in the description) come into the portal.

Was that the zombie one? It's cool, neat how it upgrades weapons and such.. Looking forward to more flashes with this program.


Yeah, whatever.

What do you expect right now? This forum itself was just made today, like... A few hours ago.
The program just released the Newgrounds Version of it, and it still isn't very popular. There is at least some discussion going on, and you aren't doing anything to contribute to any sort of discussion.


Yeah, whatever.

Just look at this game that has wowed me. Neva is a made by using this software. Just look at this a sign of things to come. This is a great day for NewGrounds.

I really really like this program a lot. This is how I always wished how making a game was. After I finish up on a few more practice runs I'm going to go ahead and try my luck at a couple of simple games.

Quick question, since the game already has ads in it do I automatically get the ad revenue right to my account when it's submitted under my name or do I have to do something else?

That's a excellent question, If you want to collect ad revenue from your creations you would need to pick up the full version of TGF2 or MMF2 and the Flash exporter. This will include the NG Flash object that enables you to do ads, medals and scoreboards in newgrounds.

I guess that only means I'm going to buy this program then. Of course I'm going to make sure that I am somewhat good with it before I make that decision final, but I'll end up profiting off of it with how inexpensive it is.

Of course...

Drop a Active object on to your frame edtior, Double click it to open the picture editor, then using the import button (A opening folder button) you can import the image into the object. You can resize in the editor or from the frame editor by clicking on the object once and using the bounding box.

Lmao, of course you would be able to import a picture man. It wouldn't be that great of a program if you could only use the graphics that they gave you and developed themselves. :P

Question... How do I get rid of this line? The stage size is 848x400 but this line appears and limits the width so the preloader and other intro stuff look weird when I upload them to the API.
http://www.newgrounds.com/account/flasha pi2/13389/preview

I mean, the game would look great if I were to complete it like that, but the intro bothers me so I'm just wondering.

Last question from me today.

They have this tool where you can draw your own as well. The possibilities to this thing are endless if you look deep enough. I feel like this will actually change the activity of NG in a very profound way. You have to see some of the amazing games that can be made, such as this.

This was made with the software.

I must say im impressed by this suckah, I thought it would be bad, but looking at some games made with it, this is great day for animators!
In any way, anyone else knows any other game from the portal that used that?

We have a thread over on Clickteam where people posted links to games they created on Newgrounds.

Some of these are using the full version or Multimedia Fusion so you wouldn't see the TGF2 ad.

Ok im on step 11 in the tutorial and im stuck.

''If you launch your game, you can see that everything works very well, except for one thing : when the ball leave the play area in the bottom, it is lost forever! We should program an action to bring it back! Let's do it. Locate your mouse on the same line than before, under the ball object, and right click. In the Action menu of the ball, locate the option "Position" / "Select position". This option automatically displays the frame for you to point to the new position of the object. Position the flashing cross in the middle of the frame, under the bricks, and click on OK.''

What do i click on? what line is the same line before and which box is the actions menu?

This is really cool! I downloaded the trail version and I'm impressed with how simple it is to make objects interact with each other. One quick question though, how much is the full version? I had a quick look at the website but couldn't seem to find the price.
