TGF2 is Expired? Nov. 4th, 2012 @ 03:19 AM Reply

Hey i'm new to game developing and Newgrounds and i need a little help on something. When i installed the Newgrounds version of TGF2 and booted it up it opened and had an expiration notice. I have a picture of it attached and it says " This version has expired, please check for a newer version on newgrounds.com. We hope you enjoy creating games or applications with this product!" and then it tells me to Buy Now or Exit. Can anyone tell me how to start the program up normally? Any help is appreciated.

TGF2 is Expired?

Okay so there's clearly no solution to this problem, and I've got a game to release in like 16 days. Screw it I'm buying the full program!

Maybe it's just the Newgrounds edition that's expired?! Did you try getting it directly from clickteam's site? Guess it's around $60 (USD) to purchase... or, it looks like they have their own forums... maybe you could ask there and find out what's up. Forum: The Games Factory 2 - Newgrounds Edition (Doesn't look like anyone's posted sine January though, hmm! not a good sign).

Download center

If anyone finds out what's going on, please share with the rest of the class! Thanks ;)

Apparently the use of The Games Factory 2 Newgrounds edition is seasonal. Newgrounds edition expires every Halloween.

So do we have to wait until next Halloween, or what?

Did you find it? If not, try this link. If you still have trouble, try checking this thread on clickteam's forums.
