"It's an old software that has been patched instead of updated"
It will work good for 2D games but you will struggle very hard to develop it and you can kiss a lot of cool features goodby
I recommend to everyone not to buy this product. I know that this post won't last 3 minutes but let me tell you you can't take em down a downloads.com or any other download place that has a link to AM.
The software runs fine but could use a lot of work. There are problem areas all over the thing. It is a pain to use for large projects and there is very minimal support. The panoramic plug in is at best a joke. It is very unstable and displays very low quality non-anti-aliased look.
The IDE is very unfriendly and filled with dialogs that pop up all over the place. There is no copy and paste support for Hotspots and because of this placing hotspots can be a very tedious and long job.
Hotspots are rectangular only and are difficult to use.
There is no support for transparencies other than gif and they only really work if there not used in conjunction with tranisitions.
The script editor is a Rich text box which the code coloring interferes with the writing of any scripts.
Although the program runs very well for 2D frame games it's frame management tool shows very small preview icons for frames and the treeview does not allow you to nest folders for good quality organization of you games.
Inventory system works very well though you have to deal with age old 256 color icons which look really stupid.
There is no ability to type in the location of the hotspots to compositing items that will be added to the inventory. You have to drag hotspots to the proper position.
There is absolutely no support for drawing by code at runtime!!!
The free version is a joke for making games.
AdventureMaker is not a production quality game making software.
The Professional edition cost $130 it used to be $160. I think that tells the story enough.
My Opinion is that the professional addition is worth about $25 at best and the free version is worthless
Look for pipmap on google.
I suggest do even click the link to download you'll end up with more of a headache
