Okay, I'm looking for a game maker engine that is 2d based, for, like, a horizontal biplane fighter/bomber/evader/air support type game. you know, like, a game where you fly your plane off a runway, then you push space to shoot the machine gun, and shift to drop bomb/fire AS cannons/fire missile/mission function. The game takes place during the first world war, and you progress from 1914 doing maybe five missions each year until 1918 were you do a final mission and win the game and unlock Cargo Dash mode.

Game Maker 8, from what I was told, can do this.
The steps, I have no idea about.

Stencyl would be perfect for this, however.. public beta doesn't go live until next month.

IG maker limits you with no physics what he's asking for is an engine that can use physics, IG maker can't use it or do what he wants properly.

Awesome... I've tried Game Editor, but it won't work, i'll see about getting a Game Maker 8 download.
Wee! thx guys. I knew forums are good things.
Ok, IG maker definitely is not what i want. The plane game would look to arcade-y. I want a physics supportive, realistic engine, where you have to take off, fly, shoot enemies/drop bombs/do firesupport and land, like you guys said i did (DONT PUT WOODS IF ME MOUTH! lol) so I'll give GM a try.

Game maker 8 would be your best bet.
There is hardly any programming needed if any at all.
It uses a simple drag and drop interface.
I know this aint fully what you mean but here is a youtube link to a game someone made in gamemaker 8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee53Xksfx9g

Yeah...I want this to be more horizontal, not arcade. Well, i can give you a link to a game that is just barely want I want, except for the takeoff-land sys. http://www.freeonlinegames.com/game/tu-95.html
The mission\ flying system is what i want you to look at. BTW I want a title screen with many different campaigns, this takes place during the first WW so there would be a British, American, German and French careers to play.
