    Evening!

    Name's Chris although I nick CheeseMyBaby... you know, from the song? Be-bop-a-lula... cheese my baby.
    Good song.

    I'm 38, from Sweden, father of two, married, ex-musician, ex-photographer, ex-filmmaker. Been working in the school system for the past decade.

    I've made two acts (out of 5) in a (text adventure) game called "The great something". Act I is called "the extraordinarily stupid tale of a former content chaser". It's about a depressed youtuber who pretty much lost everything. It's dark and it got me slightly depressed so I moved on and left it unfinished and unpublished.
    Then I found GMS2 on a whim and fell in love instantly.

    I've already had the pleasure of getting some assistance from you fine a** people in the forums but I've never formally introduced myself.
    Hi, I'm Cheese. Nice to be here!

    Greetings!
    My name is Christine.. I've been a game dev for about 12 years now. I was a UI designer/artist for most that time, and have worked on a large variety games/platforms. I've had brief encounters with gamemaker now and then, and have recently rekindled my motivation to code/build something on my own. So here I am! Nice to meet you :D

    Where you're from:
    Chile


    How long you've been using Game Maker:
    6 months. Already had 1.4 from an old bundle but decided to get GMS2 early on development before it became too messy to migrate the project (which happened to be the right choice!).

    Any cool games you've made: Currently working on my first game, called "Backpack Twins".

    Other things about yourself:
    Self taught. Before switching my focus to game development I worked as lead PHP developer for a small company for around 5 years, under an extremely toxic management, and before that I worked on my own designing and building CNC routers.

    I'm particularly fond of stop motion animation and hope to use it in a future project (was supposed to be in my current one but due to time constraints and a recent family tragedy it became too much to handle).

    I also used to collect old videogames, consoles and computers and tinker with them (such as building custom NES EPROM multicarts or a MAME cabinet) but those days are long gone. I have some stuff left but maybe 10% of what it used to be.

    I hope to get to know lots of fellow developers in this community, so hello everyone!

    Greetings.
    I am Drago.

    I am just starting to use Game Maker Studio 2 (got it in November 2018), and trying to remake my game that I almost finished in RPG Maker MV. It's called Unholy Crusade.

    I'm quite new to the scene of game making, as I'm still working on my first game. (I might have even bit off more than I can chew with it, by going for an RPG as my first. Oh well. :D)

    I also have a neurological condition called Tourette's Syndrome.



    I don't know what else to say, so I'll leave this here.

    Hello, I am CodeBum. I like to code a lot! I am thinking about buying the license again for Game Maker Studio 2. I still have a question, which is better Game Maker or GODOT? If you don't want to answer that!s okay. I am here to be peaceful and learn about all the products I am offered in game development. Thank you! :)

    How long you've been using Game Maker: 2008, didn't get decent until 2010-ish, still pretty novice/intermediate
    Any cool games you've made: I was only ever really known for Infinite Stick War of Death, which got maybe 4,000 plays...Not too popular, but I helped a lot on coding for other people's games or support here on the forum.
    Personality Type: I used to be the a-hole. I'd consider myself a little better now, I like to mess with people still.

    Other things about yourself: I'm very politically opinionated(libertarian views) so if you ever need to understand something bout politics are reasons behind what's going on, I'm 100% your guy, I have talkpoints on both sides. I like to drink and chat, so if I'm over chatty just let me known, I'm more reasonable when I'm drinking, I'll also keep my habit to myself and not talk about it in case the mods are nervous.
    I'm also an amateur astro-physicist, if you need a formula or equation in calculus or trig, I'm not thee guy, but I'm sure I'm more available.

    I thought the forums were closed and dead, and yet here they are, still alive. I have so many questions. I see posts from 2016, but last I checked in 2018, the forums were not open for posting. I guess my account got deleted too, tried to reset my password for good measure and it said an account with my email did not exist. I've been using Game Maker since version 6.1, but 6.1 had massive problems. Baseline is GM7 now, though I also have 5.3, 8, 8.1, and Studio. Studio feels really foreign to me, so I haven't got into using it yet.

    I actually haven't legit developed games in years, but I have been helping somebody else make games over the years.

    I'm Tony.

    I have been an outsider to game development communities for many years, studying more for computer engineering or web development. My primary aim is to find work, here, but I additionally aim to step further into game dev communities and build friendly relationships with others.
