The latest...

Posted by JoshDreamland on Feb. 12, 2007, 5 p.m.

Though I was working on a Mario remake, I found a game that I couldn't believe was Game Maker made, and so I found myself writing a program to test it. Turns out it was GM, BTW. ;)

So basically, from there I kept working on it until I got it to recognize any Delphi program. Though that was a mistake at first, with a little more work I got it to recognize GM6 as well, and tell it apart from Delphi. So then I had a GM6/Delphi scanner.

Of course, why stop there? I added GM5 to the mix as well. Now as far as I can tell it works very accurately, telling all three apart. I have tested it on one Delphi program, one GM5 program, and several GM6 programs. It worked on all those.

There's nothing malicious or dangerous about it, so those who want can get it here.

Also on my list was my MPlay lib. Gamemaker is unbelievably slow with the MPlay as you may already know, so I've had 7+ requests to incorporate 39ster's 39DLL. This may or may not happen. It's a lot up to 39Ster, actually. I want his permission first.

As for the simplicity though; I don't think it gets much easier. Which is probably why it caught on.

I finally got my own MSN. JoshV@zoominternet.net is the email, just in case you want to know.

Been playing Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. That game has great replay value. I have beaten it like five times now. ^_^;; Of course, now I don't play it as much after my brother opened up his birthday present that I still can't believe. A Nintendo Wii. I am amazed at it. Most people don't give Nintendo that much credit, but that thing knows speed, spin and rotation, direction, and the position of the Nunchuk extension. It's amazing throughout. So if you get the chance, I'd strongly suggest you take it.

Well, that's about it for me…

Its a WIP,don't say you actually deleted the source…right?I'm serious,a little polish and itd be great.WIPs are mainly viewed on their engines.And if I recall,not that many _REALLY_ disliked it,they were just skeptical.

Yeah, Mplay is terrible.

…also, which game made you write that program? I'd like to see it. =P

It was Park Racer.

No offence to what's his name. I didn't really think it wasn't GM, just sorta unbelievable really.

Silly Josh, Park Racer isn't really that impressive.

The gameplay sucks, but that polish…. I couldn't believe it. :p

At least, it looked too much for gamemaker, and there was no DLL.

This other one that impressed me had a give away, it was this Azurerage, you may have heard of it Jake, just a hunch. ;) It came with 39DLL so there was no question.
