    GameMaker Mentors

    Overview

    Need personal, one-on-one help from an experienced programmer? Mentors are here for you!

    This thread contains a list of people, known as Mentors, whom you can contact for your problems, if you cannot find a solution through a public forum (like the Programming section). They are divided into different categories based on the subjects that they are experienced in.

    Keep in mind that these members have no other obligation to help you other than their personal goodwill and while we understand that learning GML may often be a frustrating process, please respect them and their opinions.

    Becoming a Mentor

    If you've came here as a patriotic citizen of the GMC looking to share your knowledge with the next wave of aspiring game developers, please get in touch with me via PM to apply for a position on the Mentors list.

    Details of your experience with Game Maker and any more specific areas of GML that you can teach (such as server management, specific gaming genres or systems, 3D, etc.) will be required for you to be considered and I must point out I retain the right to refuse anybody who I feel doesn't hold the experience required to benefit the users of this list. Also, this is free service thread, any mention for fees or other charges for your services will see you denied or removed from this list.

    Aura has provided the community with a very useful list of resources to help along the way with learning about Game Maker and GML. I strongly recommend mentors take full advantage of this when assisting mentees.

    RULES
    Do not take advantage

    Any foul play, either from one of our accepted mentors or from anybody learning under those mentors, must be reported to me. Please take note (preferably by the use of screenshot) any interactions that you may deem inappropriate and I will see into removing that member from the Game Maker Mentors list or blacklisting them from the services offered here.

    Just a note for everybody about why this new topic was created... The old thread was moderated by @Rusty, and he hasn't been active in over 3 months. So, if we want some other user to moderate the topic and maintain the mentor system, the user has to make a new topic (as they cannot edit the topic of another user, but can edit the topics that they themselves have made)... For that reason I authorised @matharoo to remake the topic and have pinned it, as I'd prefer not to lose this valuable resource.

    Putting this here like I did in the last thread. . .

    As I rarely visit this place, and I mostly visit around Jam time, please DO NOT message me here - it might be months before I see I have a message, and by then I probably will not respond. Also I haven't really worked with Game Maker in months so my skills are a bit rusty. Despite this if you still want to reach me, the best place is probably Discord.
    If you do message me there, please also note I am human, and I might not answer right away or quickly. My life is not as free as it used to be and my free time is very limited.

    No idea why the other one didn't work for you, I just got it tested from a friend and it does work.
