Title: TingThing should involve more the community in Platform Builder
Post by: warrior on June 23, 2020, 01:24:53 PM
For example we should be able to mod PB to add features and publish them on Steam so TingThing can add the most populars or TingThing should make polls to determine the upcoming features that are the most requested

what for?
excuse me if I'm being a little harsh, but would anyone participate? frankly, I don't think most folks even know how to write in GameMaker. it's a bit of a bummer, really, but that's how I see it.
anyway, even if there's someone eager to mod the game, is that person able to create something for Platform Builder that is outside of TingThing's capabilities (taking into account time, skill, creativity, whatever)?
this doesn't make much sense to me... but it may not be a bad idea. if I can ask you, what would you wish to mod in, or what do you expect from other mods?

Lot of things that should have been here since 5.0
Title: Re: TingThing should involve more the community in Platform Builder

To be serious, here's the full list:
-Custom sprite loop
-Disable jumping with jump key
-Custom pause menu scripting
-Adding more keybinds
-Custom editor keybinds
-Vsync setting
-Unlocked framerate
-Custom hitboxes for player attacks
-Better custom physics for enemies
And more
Also if the keybinds thing is added, I probably won't need the pause menu scripting.

Seriously, some of those things you can already do in PB. And you weren't here for 5.0's release anyway, Warrior.

Unlocked framerate, disabling jumping with jump key, and theoretically custom hitboxes for player attacks, are already able to be done. As for the rest, it's very iffy as to wether any of those work.

So basically because you were on the forums before, you should be smarter than me? No, That's not how it works.

In this case, it does count some. That update took about 4 months to put together, and the effort I know went into it was a lot. Had you been around during that period, you may have thought differently about 5.0's release.

It's not because you were here before me than you are always right, there is like 682 times where I was right but where you conviced the entire forums that you were right and that i'm a complete scrub at everything I do.

That's not at all what I'm trying to communicate. 5.0 was the greatest PB update ever, and there could have been a lot of things added into it that weren't added into it. There's no need to get upset and say that there are features that should have been added to 5.0. 5.0 added a to of stuff, and took a long time to develop. It was very highly anticipated, and was full of features.

...BTW, were you aware that custom sprites were very limited in 5.0?

You are just trying to justify yourself.

My point is that I don't think you can speak for 5.0's features since you weren't around to actually use it and experience waiting for it. It's disappointing to me because it seems to me (notice the word seems) as though you're upset with TingThing and are upset with his work.

Im not upset with TingThing for anything except that he never adds basic features, it's you who is busting my balls.

Basic features will be added as time goes on. Just don't worry about it!

"Never adds basic features"? I often have felt that several people from this forum strive to wait too much from Ting_Thing but this here looks very weird. :o Basically if any of you make a game by yourself and I mean from scratch then the basic stuff is, for example, that you at least would be able to move and jump. PB has everything basic for them who wants to make games easily - it is the main player, some basic enemies, backgrounds, music, etc. but it now also has a lot of different ways to customize things. Have you ever tried other toolkits made for fans? My experience is often that they are always too limited, glitchy, and/or too difficult to make a game with limitations. There is no toolkit or simple game creator other than PB that I have bothered to use so long. :) Even now... Although all of my activity inside PB has been paused for long already. But unlike with the other applications, I didn't stop because of thinking it too limited for my tastes but my goals have just been raised up a bit. I want to make more complicated things by using more knowledge.

By basic he means basics for newer features. Like sprites, he wants "the basics." Such as loop controls, and such. We already have a good amount of the basics, but I get what you mean. But we do have bare bones basics for a lot of things. But you mean all of the basics.
Title: Re: TingThing should involve more the community in Platform Builder
Post by: Alley on July 03, 2020, 12:33:03 AM
Yeah, I understand you! ::) But there is no reason to show such a dissatisfaction because PB has been passed a time when we missed something really good that would not be so basic already a lot of time ago. When those things happen then we have reason to wait for some new good things because the application is for this or will need some extras to make something new more perfect. So it can improve like forever and the hopes by the fans will never end. We should remember that a lot of our suggestions has been already accepted. Ting_Thing has accepted even some of my suggestions(I mean no bug reports and such) and there is no a lot of them who do that. :D

Without starting a drama, we must recognize that some people on this forum get more favors than others

Just because certain people's suggestions get taken more than others doesn't mean TingThing has favorites. It depends on the ideas, (how good they are) how important they are, and what TingThing feels like doing. I think we often overlook that last part.

World News
Fall of Paris
While fighting still rages elsewhere in the nuts, reports have come in of Setap troops entering Paris.

The capital was declared an open city by Warrior forces moments before their last units retreated. Several columns of Setap troops recreated the German victory parade of 1940 by marching down the Champs-Élysées while Parisians looked on in stunned silence.

Military experts predict that the collapse of Paris is imminent.
