Completely re-vamped tutorials are coming, designed for Game Maker 8.1 Standard.

Posted by on

So you've payed for your nice and shiny version of Game Maker 8.1 Standard, but what's this? All the Bluish-Green Productions Game Maker Help tutorials are designed for Game Maker 8 Lite! That won't do, that won't do at all! Indeed, I shall not stand for it.
Sure the current tutorials are compatible with Game Maker 8.1 Standard, but they are not made for it. This shall be no quick re-skin, no, this is a complete do-over! Only the games will remain largely unchanged in this conversion, the tutorials themselves are getting a complete overhaul.
Here is a list of changes you can expect to see:

  • Re-writes: Looking over how I've written the tutorials I've found a lot that needs changing. It's not all bad, but there is a LOT that I am completely re-writing in order to better suite your game-making needs.
  • Formatting: It was fine before for what it was. But now it is so much better! Cleaner, less cluttered pages, better quality and up-to-date photos, even a new watermark.
  • Video tutorials: This is a ways off yet, but make no mistake. For those who dislike boring, sound-less text, that you have to *shudder* read, videos will make all that a thing of the past! Prepare to see step-by-step, mouse-click for mouse-click guides presented in that most fantastic format of web-based moving pictures!

To demonstrate the change, here is a comparison between the old and new introductions for the BGPGM Help tutorials, I do hope you can tell which is which:

Out with the old!

Not bad, but could be a little nicer on the eyes.

In with the new!

Much better! (I hope you'll agree).
I'll be converting the tutorials starting immediately, I have already finished the Introduction (hence the preview) but I won't upload it just yet, seeing as there isn't anything to introduce. Once I have the Cave Explorer tutorial updated to 8.1, you can expect to see both file make their proud debut right here on Mod DB!

Good luck Game Making!
