    New to the forums and/or MMF 2 / TGF 2?

    Thought I might just make a post of all the things that are mostly asked over and over again in the forums by people who are new to the software.

    1. Search

    You can see a "search" button in the top of this page.

    This will help you find what you need fast and you won't need to post another topic about the thing that has been already asked a thousand times.
    There's also a FAQ link at the top of the page, it might have the answer you're looking for.

    2. Updates And Extensions

    A lot of people ask where to find extensions and updates for MMF 2 (Multimedia Fusion) or TGF 2 (The Games Factory). There's a sidebar on the forums that gives you lots of good quick links.

    When you start using MMF 2 or TGF 2, the first thing you should do is to download the updates and Bonus packs from the sidebar:

    MMF2 Standard (build 254)
    MMF2 Developer (build 254)

    And the extension packs for MMF2:

    Bonus Pack 1
    Bonus Pack 2
    z33z Extension Pack
    LIJI Extension Pack

    Demo

    And updates for TGF 2:

    TGF 2 latest stable update (build 253)

    Extension View:

    ExtensionView is an extension database and download software. It will be kept it up-to-date, and it features more information that any of the other current extension listings.

    More Info
    Download

    3. Java, HWA and Vitalize! 4

    Clickteam has runtime versions for Java and HWA (Harware Acceleration). They have their own forums for related questions:

    HWA
    Java Runtime
    Technical Support for Vitalize

    4. Tutorials For Beginners

    You might be a bit lost with the software if you're a beginner, but don't worry. There are a lot of tutorials, open source games, and more made by Clickteam and other community users:

    Tutorials

    Note that some of them might not work with The Games Factory.

    5. Developing Online Games/Applications

    There have been a lot of questions about how you can make online games with MMF 2 / TGF 2. You can use Lacewing.

    Lacewing Forums
    Download (Build 20)

    Once you understand how the system works, you should be able to play around with it and learn how to create a small online game. Don't go for anything big like an MMORPG, because the chances are you won't finish it ever and have just wasted a lot of time for nothing. Try creating simple turn-based online games first and then move on.

    6. Other Useful Links

    As I said, the sidebar in the forums has lots of good links you should check out. If you feel like you want to ask something and you haven't found an answer for it after checking everything I mentioned in this post, then go ahead and create a new topic. Just remember the rules of the forum.

    Many users are happy to help you out, and we have a nice chat room (Made in MMF 2 by the way!) where you can aske questions and talk with other users.

    Click Converse Download (Build 102)
    Click Converse Forums

    The chat room works with your account for this forum, so insert in your account name and password and you're all set.

    There. I think that's the most important things.

    Quick update:
    If you can't get the extension from there, you can use the Fusion Updater program to get the extensions. Note that the Fusion Updater does NOT download examples for the extensions if there are any (with version 1.5.0 or less).

    It's planned for the next version.

    Note: If you try and install an update patch over a new install of MMF and it say's something along the lines of not knowing what version is installed, make sure you run MMF at least once before installing the update otherwise the patch won't recognise it.

    Re: New to the forums and/or MMF 2 / TGF 2?

    very good job Ravenius so..as everyone know's, beta versions are not the finl version, but i was stupid enough to start project on the HWA beta and..well it is only one level till now (6min's) but it is working well so far i guess (will post it on the forum as soon as it will be ready and it is very close to that point..(still have to fix few things and to recored original track for this level so...all of this leads me to question:

    if i use HWA and i want's also to use the lastes build of the regular mmf2 (build 248) can i have this two installed on my pc?
    i mean the beta HWA 249 and the 248?

    well..i just found the regular build at the mmf2 installation folder, so..it answered my question lol.

    Yeah When you install HWA it installs as a different product so you may easily change between those two.

    Maybe a silly question but is there a Clickteam newsletter? If there is not: it would be cool if subscribers received mails with news on updates, new extensions and such.
