    Question:
    What do you call a game which combines Hammer, the program which lets you create your own props and weapons, and charming 2D graphics?

    Answer:
    2D-mod, of course! =D

    If you have a copy of Game Maker, download the GM6 file and get editing!

    Otherwise, download the EXE file to see the demo and try out the un edited version.

    Well, when I get the links up of course.
    If anyone knows of a site which allows you to upload ZIP files, please tell me about it.

    PS, If you want to hear more about 2D-mod, you may go FAQ all up in this board. And if you wish, you can post your edited versions.

    Thanks for reading mate. James XDDDD

    Hammer isn't in 3D game maker and you don't make real props with hammer just brush based prop-esque things.
    Hammer is 3D mapping tool, thus not 2D.
    and are you getting someone to make you a game?, you said people to work on their own stuff, is this one of those "make me a game but credit me for my lack of talent"



    PS what is this a mod for?

    No no, it's my game.I'm working on it as we speak. But help WOULD be appriciated.

    I.E How do you hide the cursor? (Bear in mind I have only got the unsuscribed Game maker. I should be suscrubing next week.)

    And hammer is what you use to make maps, mate. Can you say, Tsuche? :P

    PS It's not a mod per-say, it's an editable stand alone game which requires no engine ('Sept Game Maker, maybe :)).

    And just politey requesting if we could perhaps stay on topic? I don't want my board to be flooded with useless posts. (Still allowing witty humor if interested :D)

    "Can you say, Tsuche?", No (I can't pronounce it and you can't spell it), Hammer isn't compatable with 3D game maker, It's a mapping tool that works with the source engine, there is more than one mapping tool in the world.

    If it's a game it needs an engine, games don't just occur, they are made.

    LOL! You guys have got it all wrong!
    I'm only saying it's simialar to hammer, because you can make 'maps' and events for it, and as for the Touche/Tsuche comment, congrats mate! It's good to be a bit assertive at times. Cue appluase. (PS NOT BEING SARCASTIC)

    P.S.S, Please stay on topic, I.E FAQ, programming help. And this isn't made using the 3D game maker. I know there's one but i'm using the other Gmaker, the 2D one

    I suppose any mapping program is quite simialar to another because at the root they are trying to make things easier for themselves.

    It's a re-created, fully editable 2D Gmod for those who don't have enough Hard drive space for BETA. :) Next question, anyone?

    < LOL!I like the newbie avatar. NOT CHANGING IT.

    Oh, and a quick run through of how the weapon systems work:

    You can see the weapon on screen. Left click it to pick it up. Controls:
    Right click, Primary fire!
    Space bar, Secondary fire!

    How to switch weapons:
    Typically the same as HL2. The number keys are used to select the weapon, once you spot the weapon you want, click the icon. The weapon on screen should change. Also, the 'Toolbox' (Hehehe, geddit?) can be brought up by pressing F1. So basically, you can have one tool and one weapon out at the same time! Handeh :D

    Jesus that's going to take you years, you'll have to do what garry did and everything else.

    Plus you'll get in legal trouble, garry's mod is a game you pay for so garry can sue you for stealing a commercial idea.

    1, I have been working on it for years! I'm still not done!
    2, This is just a fan spoof. Much like the fan flash games you may find on the internet.

    Oh, and i've just finished the coding. Now all i'm doing is piecing it together. If you want screen shots, you may ask.

    You are 13
    You spell badly
    You seem to be, not the best with these thing from what I get

    I would say not to try this, just letting you know, it would take ages to do, and with Gamemaker's coding, even longer

    Give me screen shots

    Edit:

    That is a picture from Gmod, and some bad sprites...how is it a game?
    It looks like random stuff

    ^ Screenshots up there buddy.

    So, maybe I am 13? Your point?
    And maybe being not the best speller doesn't make me a bad person.
    What are 'these things'?

    If you're going to be negative to others, please don't post here. It doesn't make anyone happier :(

    Lies, this is a ms-painted screenshot of garry's mod, not a game nearing completion.

    The Sprites are being worked on. The 'map' is a backdrop to give it that authentic feel. The 'Badly Drawn sprites' are only temporary. Still in mid-completion stage.
    And also try saying that when i've completed the game and posted the link.

    I said the 13 thing because I doubt (I said doubt, I know a few people who may be able to do this) any 13 year old can build a whole recreation of Gmod in gamemaker.
    Hell, I'm 14, but at least I have been working on the stuff I use since I was 11, and I know to have something real to show before posting, or to at least spell good so I do not look like a fool.
    If you are applying for a job and spell like an 8th grader you will most likely not get the job.
    I don't know if you are taking this the wrong way, I'm saying the idea just doesn't seem to work with what you are using.

    I don't really see this as negative, if it is, I'd like a mod to tell me

    WHY ISN'T ANYONE LISTENING! I HAVE HAD 5 YEARS EXPERIENCE W/ GAME MAKER! My spelling will get better with age and AGE doesn't matter.

    Oh, there's hardly any game play at the moment, experimenting with weapon system + physics.

    1,Listen, Screen shot was not made in paint. Why would I post a game
    which isn't real?
    2, AGE DOESN'T MATTER!
    3, GMOD DOESN'T HAVE A STORY!

    You all seem to be posting in a similar pattern here. Why are you still critisising if you haven't played yet?

    I doubt that you have been using it since you were 8, and age mostly has nothing to do with spelling unless you are like...well 8, I know age does not matter, it is the fact that for what you are doing it does, I mean, wouldn't age matter if it was an 8 year old making a model of The Great Lord C'thulhu and fully texturing it and putting it as an NPC into a half-life mod?
    Word your stuff better and none of this would have happened, your first post makes it sound like you are using hammer and gamemaker to make a mod for hammer that is 2d, so I would reword it, you don't have to, but it would stop most of the confusion.

    Edit:

    I have been using it since I was eight. My sister was using it, so I decided I wanted it aswell. As I started to download others games, I started to pick up some of the code used for game maker. In time I started to have a greater understanding of game maker. I was fully using it by 9. So that's actually sort if 4 years experience. But, oh well. Long enough.
    Enough of my life story.
    Are you actually gonna have the balls to stop crtisicing me and ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE GAME? This is why I created this board. Answering negative comments is starting to grow tedious.
    Please stop answering in negative comments.

    And I answered it. I just find you lack of faith disturbing.

    Oh, and here's my plan:

    Week 1:
    Physics and weapon system.

    Week 2:
    Props and spawnlist

    Week 3:
    NPC's and Ragdolls

    Week 4:
    Figuring out an idea for the vehicle system.

    Week 5:
    Improving sprites.

    Week 6:
    Sending to public :D

    Once I post 2D-mod, please feel free to edit the .gm6 file by adding new props, new locations and new ideas. Once you're done post it on this topic so we can all play it. Call it a 'mod' if you want

    Edit:

    You click on the link. It should take you to the picture.

    P.S, Is there a secondary fire on the fizzygun? I can't remember as I haven't played on Gmod for a while. Steam has been acting up again.
