Hi I'm Eschirm.
« on: June 07, 2019, 10:08:28 PM »
I don't really have much to say about me - I'm fairly new to coding and learning it on my own, so awesome resources like this are really helping turn my long-held game-making daydreams into a feasible reality. Thank you!  :)

Hey! I know how you feel! Platform Builder doesn't really have code. But it does give you basics and a few definitions. It's somewhere between a spoken language, and code. Anyway, we're glad to have you! Why not share your project idea, and make a suggestion or two? I already introduced myself in the bug report, but Welcome to the Platform Builder forums! Also, are you planning to be active here?

Thanks for the welcome! I probably won't be the most active of users but I'll definitely try to visit the forum whenever I get a chance. :)

It's just a hobby, but I've been working on a platform game where you go around as a ghost possessing different characters. I had originally started from scratch in gamemaker and had a decent engine going - basic controls, tile collisions, possessing characters and stuff - but as it got more complicated I realized I was spending pretty much all my time going back to reconfigure parts of the code that I should have organized better from the start.

I'm hoping now to try starting over with an engine created by someone more experienced, and so far I'm having a lot of fun seeing how much more efficient it is to use things like state machines and better organized scripts.

Yup! At least you've gotten farther in GML than I ever did. Sounds like a very interesting game idea. Is it based off of super mario odyssey? There are a lot of members that are not active here. Or, very active. But it's okay if you don't come here all of the time of course.

I've actually never played Mario Odyssey! I didn't realize it had that sort of mechanic, but I just watched the trailer - that looks awesome! Now I'm gonna have to play it.  :D

Hello Eschirm! We're glad you're here!


So, are you getting into Platform Builder or the Ultimate Platformer Engine?

Glad to be here! Thanks for making such an amazing project. :)

I'm using the Ultimate Platformer Engine. This is the first time I've downloaded anything off the Yoyogames marketplace since I started messing around with Gamemaker a year or two ago. I'm both overjoyed and overwhelmed with all the coding you've done, and having a great time digging in to see how it all works!

I wish I had the UPE. I'm not sure if I will get it yet, but I might just buy it now so that I don't have to worry about it later. If I ever do get it. Platform Builder Pro is great too. I'd suggest getting both for the best results. PB pro can do a lot on its own you know. Having both can take a LOT of the workload off! Though I haven't gotten this from personal experience, I do know that for a fact.

Welcome, Eschirm! :)

It is nice to see you here! I see you also continued to post here after that you have made the first post so I can hope you will be another more active member here... ::)

I am just curious... You are female also. Are you a member called as Esan and Sain from YouTube? :)

Thanks Antikore and Alley! I've been less active lately due to work, but appreciate the welcoming community. :)

And no, I don't know any Esan and Sain, sorry. I am a girl though - still a bit rare in the programming world, but we definitely exist! :P

This is very unusual. Because, you and LyndsWins are both girls, and you both do programming. And the rest of us are guys, and we don't care/know how to program. Well, most of us don't know how to program.
