Ello folks, I'm Beli_Mawrr. I used to be called AirmanEpic and Elfdud7 for anyone who remembers back in to the ORIGINAL yygf.

My real name is classified but it'll probably come up if you search hard enough for it.
I's from California
Been using Gamemaker for 10 or so years, but haven't really used it in a while.
Haven't made any cool games really, but I can and do make half-games with multiplayer and all that.

Personality type: Grumpy

Other things: spent over 24 hours of coding making a replacement forum, I'm happy/sad that we have a real forum now.

I also do 3D modelling, so if you need it for your 3D game, contact me.

Guest
Hey! I get to introduce myself all over again.
I'm 2Create, as I've always been. I'm currently 22 years old and live a happy life in the wet soggy mire that is the Netherlands.
I've used Game Maker since I was young, maybe 12 or 14 or so, and over time I've grown proficient at using it. Although I rarely find time to actually make anything, and I've moved on to other IDE's for many projects, it's still a hobby of mine to just screw around with it and test random ideas.

Hello I am Carnivius, I used to be Carnivac (big change, right?). I'm from the UK and I've been using Game Maker since February 2002 and have released zero games so far. :D I like acting in local theatre productions, retrogaming, the Uncharted game series, DC comics TV shows (The Flash, Arrow etc) Transformers movie robots, RoboCop, Johnny Cash, cycling. I dislike carrots, modern Nintendo, 99% of all first person shooters, rap music and The Big Bang Theory.

Personality test I got this one: https://www.16personalities.com/infp-personality Dunno if true...

First of all I'd like to question the line of 'Username:' in the template. Is this not already obvious enough?! 3-3

Now that that's out of the way,
I was 'Flaeon' on the old forums. I'm from South Africa. I don't use Game Maker much at all any more, but I've had around three years of experience with it (I dabble from time to time). Now I'm a 3D CG artist, musician, animator, general 3D geek who dabbles in electronic beats and 2D art and allsorts~

Name: Michael!
Age:19
Where you're from: UK, now moved to abroad
How long you've been using Game Maker: About 12 years
Any cool games you've made: http://maddestudiosgames.com/game-corner/
Personality Type: INFJ-A (According to the linked test)
Twitter, where I do most of my stuff: @MaddeMichael

Other things about yourself: It took me too long to write this :p
Let me think... It's probably a bit easier if I just sort of say what I like/dislike or whatever? Sorry, I'm not very good with social situations (even forums), is that OK?
Anyway, I like programming, drawing, playing music and probably a bunch of other stuff too! Everything in the games I make is 100% by me and I take a bit of pride in that, even though it is sometimes tricky to manage the workload. My primary ability seems to be making platformers, though I do still prefer games like the A Link To The Past. At the moment, I'm working on a pure GML COLLADA 3D model importer for GameMaker - I just need to finish up bones and animation for that. I also made a fully GML based XML reader for GameMaker, too.
Sorry, I can't think of much else right now. I don't normally talk about myself much.

Anyway, nice to see that the forums are back up and I hope to meet some great people!

(though I'm very guilty of playing GTA 5 and fallout 4). Sometimes I draw, sometimes I tweak games to my liking, sometimes I just do nothing.

Super glad to see someone's already started an introduction thread! So, here I go:

I'm Bret Hudson, been using Game Maker for 8 years (started March 6th, 2008, at the wee age of 12, when I thought bretboy129 was a cool username). Since then, it's been a wild journey, venturing into both web and software development. ActionScript 3, C++, C#, and PHP are among my most used languages, and throughout the years I've discovered a love for low level programming. However, I do still visit GameMaker from time to time.

Minnesota is my home state over here in the US, but recently I've been doing a lot of traveling. Unfortunately, between driving, enjoying the places I go, and work (freelance/contract software developer), I haven't had much time to plug away at games. I've released a dozen or so games, and you can check them out over on my website.

I also run indie(Function);, a website that contains a news blog, podcast, e-magazine, video tutorials, and more, to help individuals learn about the indie community, the spectacular people within it, and how to make games themselves. We'll be starting a thread on here soon, so everyone can keep up with our content as we churn it out. We had a good connection with the GMC back in the day, and I'm hoping we're able to restore that with the new forums.

Hope to see a good mix of familiar and new faces on the forums!

Hello, I'm Ninety, I used to be Ninety on the GMC where I was always called Ninety and always will be.

I live in Australia. I've been using GameMaker for about 10 or 11 years, since I was a wee lad. Mostly I'm a musician and pixel artist, these days. I haven't finished any games. I am working on a sweet farming game, though.

This is my first post on the new GMC. It feels weird.
