    Is anyone not switching to GMS2?

    I have recently joined the GMS2 beta, and I honestly haven't felt a strong need to switch over. I'm not sure if I'll eventually have a change of heart, though, considering I was pretty stubborn to leave GameMaker 8. I'm just curious to see if there are any of you that plan to continue using...
