I first started using Game Maker in version 3, which was much different than it is now. Version 4 was when things changed to the layout used since. Everything laid out in such a logical manner, I was able to get a grip on things, and program in it quite well, nothing I couldn't do. Alas, the limitations of running a game in it, it lagging so very badly, caused me to eventually loose hope in it. But as the years go by computers have become many times faster. I started with a 300 megahertz computer, and now have a dual processor 2.3 gigahertz one. Plus Game Maker has made improvements in various versions of course.
My old Game Maker forum is at http://s8.invisionfree.com/Game_Maker_forum/index.php?act=idx the one that existed for years before that on Ezboard and being lost when they had a disgruntled employee hack them and erase everything, so we started again on Invision instead, they not having the super irritating ads Ezboard had at that time. I submitted code examples to help people at times, and answered questions to those in need. Haven't done anything with Game Maker in years. I wonder what's possible now.
