"Haven't Seen Much Better"

November 12, 2006  |  By Ntharotep

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

I see a lot of reviews about how this is as bad as learning C++. It doesn't even come close (assuming that C++ is at least as hard as learning Visual Basic). Or maybe "hard" isn't the issue. It is far more time consuming IMO to use a basic programming language than to use MMF or TGF. It is missing things like mp3 capability and won't let you create the greatest games of our time, but starting from scratch it will likely take you years to create such games with C++ as well. I would say that this series is the "easiest" engine for creating games. I've tried several others from Dark Basic to 3d Game Maker and none of them are as simple to use as the Click Team's products. If there are easier game engines out there to use I'd certainly like to hear about them.

The tutorial for MMF2 starts you out with a simple break out game and takes you step by step though it. I've created a few puzzle games rather easily with this software as well. Extension support for these products are also numerous and include things from mp3 support to Save Game functionality.

Cons

MMF2 hasn't added much from its predecessor. Still no MP3 support as far as I can tell, not sure about the save game function. I can't really say that the newest edition "wowed" me beyond what already existed. It looks like they just gave it a slightly different lay out.

Finding extensions aren't hard (assuming that mmf2 is backwards compatible) but creating extensions required programming. Object values were limited (don't know if this has changed in mmf2 or not). It isn't an interface to create powerful graphic based applications such as a 3d game. For that, good 'ol know-how and either Maya or other 3d application software is certainly the best.

"Great, powerful and easy to use"

January 27, 2006  |  By neewah

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

It's powerful and versatile - you can make practically any 2d game just clicking a mouse and using the powerful events editor to 'program' your game, without any knowledge of scripting at all and also you can add / make extensions to give your games / programs even more flexiblity and professionalism

Cons

A few minor bugs in the level editor need to be fixed, but there are workarounds in most cases with ingame bugs

"MMF is an excellent application."

October 31, 2005  |  By KingLo0oza

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

I have used Clickteam programs for atleast 6 years, and I've probably used all of them at some time, from Klik & Play to Jamagic. Multimedia Fusion, Klik&Play and The Games Factory are a series of WYSIWYG Dev programes. The most recent is Multimedia Fusion and with it you can create applications, slideshows, animations, pictures and games. On it's own MMF is fairly weak at all of these but it all works very well together and it's very fast and surprisingly flexable thanks to the hundreds of extensions on the clickteam website. You can download an extension or write them yourself in VisualC++, and basically link it all together with the MMF event editors.

Basically Multimedia Fusion gets as complicated as you want it to be, so creating a game could take anytime between 2 hours to several months depending how much control you want to have.

If you want to make commercial quality programs you could produce anything PopCap games could, and almost any kind of windows application!

Cons

The problem is Multimedia Fusion isn't really designed to do a lot of the stuff people use it for, so it's sometimes messy and buggy. MMF is still using the same code from K&P and it really needs to be re-written now. The biggest fault is that some of the most basic things you can do with programing like having loops within loops are not available unless you use extensions, so you will either have to work around it's limmitations or get the extensions for the job. You also won't be able to make modern 3D games, the most advanced 3D extension available is OpenGL.

MMF2 is coming out Christmas 2005 (hopefully) and this promisses to iron out the most frustrating problems in MMF1.5 but be even more flexable and expandable.

I also highly recomend Jamagic.

"Fun, Easy, and User Friendly Game Development at a low price! Part 1"

August 31, 2005  |  By FusionDude416

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

If I had the time or attention span, I would write a bible in praise of Multimedia Fusion.

2004. I had been searching for game development programs for a year and a half. I was ready to tear my hair out (and I have a lot of hair, mind you). But then i was on a graphics resource site (reinerstileset.de) and the guy who owned a website had a link on his weboage to the MMF website because he loves the tool, too.

After reading the information on the site I instantly literally jumped out of my seat and ran around my block screaming my cry of victory. (No, I really did.) I downloaded the trial afterwards and made 3 games with it before the 30 days were up. As soon as it expired I ordered the Home Edition (I didn't have enough for the $300 Pro version) I had a fast delivery too. The cheapest shipping auction got from France to my house (in Connecticut) in a week. And I thought I couldn't be any happier. The First thing I did was I compiled my games into exe's(you can't do that in the trial version) and made installers for them. I gave them to my friends and they said that I could have sold these (but I didn't because they're all arcade games).

-------------------------------------------

Cons

The only thing that I would like is that there was a way to upgrade from Standard Edition to Pro (Pro has support for making Trial versions of your software) so for you who are intending to buy MMF, spend an extra $200 and buy the Pro version.

ok.

'nuff said.

tell me if my review takes up 2 pages.

"An awesome and very powerful program- I love it!"

January 30, 2005  |  By pullusaquila

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

This product is very powerful. You can do about any kind of minor game programing without the hassle. It is simple to use, easy to understand, and you don't need any programing experience. Multimedia Fusion really hits it big!

Cons

There are a few very minor flaws with the program codeing, but- overal very reliable. With just a small amount of experience with this program, you can learn to overcome these flaws.

"Amazing Program developent, without the script"

January 28, 2005  |  By KCB

 |  Version: Multimedia Fusion 1.5

Pros

I have been using Mutimedia Fusion for over 2 years now, and I LOVE IT. I have made many games and applications an it, and I didn't write a single line of script. I haven't found a single 2D game or application that I can't make with it. Forget about coding, use Multimedia Fusion.

Cons

It pretty much only does 2D games and applictions, but clickteam is planning to come out with MMF3D in the future.
