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.
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
And updates for TGF 2:
TGF 2 latest stable update (build 253)
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.
3. Java, HWA and Vitalize! 4
Clickteam has runtime versions for Java and HWA (Harware Acceleration). They have their own forums for related questions:
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:
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.

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.
