UPE Progress Update 3
« on: March 07, 2019, 02:23:44 AM »
Hi everyone!


These past few days, I have had a lot of openings to work on the UPE. I just finished the example file, and the rest of my work is to clean up more code and test a lot of the features. After that stuff is done, I'll need to do a little work to update Platform Builder so that it works better with the UPE, and then we're ready!


I'm expecting to be done somewhere between Mid-March and the end of April. Here's hoping.


Below is a screenshot of one of the rooms in the example file, viewed from within Game Maker.

Will it be easy to learn to create commands?

I try to keep things as simple as possible. But code is code. It all depends how well you know it.

Oh. Okay. Is it as easy as it is for you to put it into Platform Builder?

Depends on the coder... but with a bunch of pre-built commands already there as examples, it shouldn't be too difficult. It just takes time to learn the engine.

there are definitely useful threads on game maker's forums, but I think it'd be better for you to take an online course for coding and learn the basics.

One step at a time; you'd need to get Game Maker first :)

Well, I mean getting someone who already owns GMS2 PRO or whatever to do the job's for me.

When you're close to getting the UPE released, will you create a page for it on the GM marketplace? Like you did with PB on steam?

I don't think the GM Marketplace has a coming soon option like Steam does. So you probably won't see it on there until it's actually released.


It's possible I'll have a webpage setup for it before it's released. I'll let you guys know if I do that.

If anything it would be on theplatformbuilder.com.

Thought so... It would be nice to add a new page where command prompt could be found. Like, a page called PB help.
