Well I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, I feel like I've gotten really good at using MMF and I consider myself to be into pretty advanced territory. On the other hand, I'm terrible at coding in most other programming languages and I couldn't really make anything useful with them.
So here's my roadblock:
I need a feature that MMF doesn't have, but I can't make it. So I'm basically stuck. This, in my opinion, is the limitation with MMF. Once a person gets well acquainted with the program, they begin to discover things they just can't do, and it's really frustrating.
I think the most frustrating part is that I've requested these features to be added in the past, but I'm basically at the mercy of Clickteam. So it's incredibly hard to create a business as an indie game developer using Clickteam products because of these roadblocks.
I have a roadblock on a potentially great game that has caused me to stop working on it entirely, all because a feature is missing from MMF that I can't add myself. So is this a limitation with MMF or with me? I never planned on getting into serious coding, which is why I use MMF in the first place. So coding my own extension to solve the problem isn't really an option. I don't have the money to pay someone to make it right now, so basically I wait. That is, if I can even find someone to make it once I have the money to afford it.
Without the feature, my game really can't be made. I wouldn't even really consider this a huge issue since you know... maybe I should just not make a game that requires that feature. But I see this problem cropping up again in the future. I can't possibly predict everything that MMF is and will be capable of... so the more advanced I get into MMF, the more I'm going to run into limitations like this, and the more I'm either going to have to cancel games completely, or dumb them down to a level I find unsatisfactory.
I know it really isn't reasonable to demand that Clickteam adds every feature the users need, but some of the features I'm in need of seem like basic features of other game creation tools.
I'm not really sure why I'm posting this, or what this thread will accomplish. I guess it's just partially me ranting, and partially me hoping I'm not alone, and partially me hoping that someone will notice and start working on the features I need.
Until then, I guess I'll start working on another game project... and hopefully not run into another brick wall.
