Medley of suggestions
« on: March 25, 2018, 01:01:23 PM »
Some of my best ideas for Platform Builders, and I haven't tell yet.
Here we go:

1) Number Fast Changing: When I for example try to make higher the max of coins to 999, I have to hold the click on the arrow until reaches  999, this can be easier edited by clicking on the number and input 999 or something like that.
2) Advanced Values: Instead of "Slow, Medium, Fast and Very fast" speeds, place a number or something in advanced mode, for example, like 1 for slow, 5 for medium, 10 for fast, and 20 for very fast.
So you can put 3.5, and will slower than medium but faster than slow.
Can be very nice:
3) Better crashing output: Instead of the classical GameMaker's error log code, a customized one for easy understanding of the player, and send it faster to TingThing
4) Standalone Maker: Or some way to make an exe or an standalone like wih the MBPlayer for example
5) Credit section on the explore section: I think you will need to credit someone in the explore when making a game.
6) Credit screen in-game: At the end, you can watch full credits
7) Text in levels: A way to create text in maps, like in the menus.
8) Colors for text: Colored text maybe be quite good.
9) Different lateral scroll (idk how to call this): If you played games like Shovel Knight, sometimes the player must reach the lateral of the screen to scroll to the other side, not the player on just on the center. An option  to change from one to the other type of scroll will be very welcome.

Hope you like this ideas, thank you ;D

Almost every one of those suggestions I have thought to ask about. I just suggest stuff that I feel like suggesting. And those ideas were good. Like the fast changing numbers.

Have you seen #3 done before with other Game Maker projects? I have never heard of this... I'm not sure if Game Maker has those sort of features.


For #5 and 6, what are you thinking of, specifically? Because you can already give credit in texts for game screens, and you can mention the author or other credits in the description of the publisher.

For the 3# - It's just a suggestion, Idk if is possible to do it, I think that yes but Idk.
For the 4# - I'm refering to: When I enter a game on the explore section, a button named "credits" that when you click it, you see a message like:
"Music by ChorizoDeCantimpalo" for example
For the 5# - When you play the game, and you finish it, a credits scrolling from down to up, like on films, that only will appear if the creator wants it.

Sometimes, the description of the game publisher character limit is, a little limited, for example, to give credit for the Kevin MacLeod's music, you need multiple characters with only one song, in the case of 5, for example, where I can place the credits and tbe desc? ;) ;)

Thank you for your attention ;D ;D

Advanced values are things that also I have been thought about. It would be a lot of smoother way for making low change to a high value and would allow to add more variants.  :)
The ending credits is one of things that also I have been suggested and it would be very nice to see this for our games. Of course, it is possible to make a screen for now but it would be a lot of prettier if it would be possible to add several of those and with some movement. Single screen that is closable with a single click is a bit too plain and small reward for beating the hard game.  ::)

I am glad to see that I am not the only one again who thinks so.  :)
