Multimedia Fusion 2.5
« on: 12 Feb 2015, 00:20 »
Hi All.

I need your thoughts.
I have been toying with the idea of purchasing Multimedia Fusion 2.5. (and the Android Extender.)

Looking online it looks really cool. There are loads of vids about it and everyone raves about it.
I downloaded the free version to try and already made a small space shooter with it. (very basic, like Zap...Zap...Bang...Bang.)
Before I purchase it though I want to ask... Does anybody here use it and what are your opinions of it?

Yours.
Jay.

Hi

I own fusion 2.5 developer with all exporters and I'm very happy with it.Everything is visual and you don't need write any code.Although there is SDK for write extension for it.Only problem is some extensions doesn't support all platforms.
I made 'Datswer' game with this engine that is on App store,google play and Steam now :

Hi Mehrdad.

Thank you for your reply.
Your game 'Datswer' looks pretty cool. 8-) I don't know if you are aware but there is no video preview for it on Steam, only screenshots.
Anyway, not that it matters. I like the look of it so much that I'm going to purchase it from Steam. ;-D

I thought about the developer version but its quite a bit more expensive than the standard version.
Reading about the differences I couldn't really see any, other than the Copyright stuff (putting the Fusion logo on your games etc.)
All I really need is the Windows exporter (Which I believe is already with the standard version) and Android exporter (Which I would have to purchase separately).

Do you think that the Standard version is good enough?
What I mean is... Could you have made 'Datswer' with the Standard version of MMF2.5?

Yours.
Jay.

hi Jay

It's very strange that video on steam doesn't work .I remember uploaded it.Anyway thanks for feedback.
Trailer of Datswer. Here you are:


I agree with you. Developer version is very expensive and there is not actually main different between it and standard version.Developer version is only focused on publish games.Although you can sell your games with standard version too.
And your answer is 'yes' . Standard version is completely enough for make any 2D games.You can make many better than Datswer game with it:wink:

Is this the Multimedia Fusion that was in a Humble Bundle way back? Does "Everything is visual and you don't need write any code" mean that it's simpler to use than AGS? I have a 2D platformer I designed with my sister a few years ago that I never took any further (coz gamemaker looks too hard)...

Yes. Everything is visual and you don't need write any code.It's design for any 2D game genres special platformer.Although AGS have very easy coding too.
