This is the first I've heard of this game maker. I can't believe I missed out on something like this for so long, but I took the time to read EVERY SINGLE POST in this thread. Took me around 30-50 minutes.
I don't have any suggestions (Yet) as I haven't DL'd it. I will DL it though. I have a question that you're probably already answered somewhere, but I'll be more specific about it.
There's a guy who's making a really cool Fire Emblem game for RMXP
(And yes it works and does not suck) and he'll release a kit for it within the next year, at which point I will be using it. However, for other people who are not specifically looking to make Fire Emblem games, but just turn based strategy games similiar to it, will it be possible to make those kind of games with your game maker? With or without scripting? (Or a limited amount if any)
In case you've never played it, Fire Emblem operates by moving around on a grid based map. (16x16 tiles) When the units attack, it cuts to a cutscene, and they fight. The motions are all preprogrammed, and the values such as damage and such are all based solely on unit Stats. (So pressing button while they attack won't affect the fighting in the slightest.) This is very similiar to Advance Wars, especially because both series were made by Intelligent Systems.
So is it possible?
