Have fun :lol:

And please do not take the results too serious

IT DOESNT MATTER how long you used Gamemaker. You can still be a n00b even if you use it from Animo.

Nice graphics, effects, sounds and system. But I think some of the questions isn't that much related to gamemaker and the coding - but more very specific information. This test tests you for how much you know about the forum, the creator and the history of gamemaker, and general gml - you cannot say that somone are good in Game Maker from this test... But overall, nice test and knowing stuff about the forums and the history is imporant too... Nice job :)

No kidding! :)
This doesnt seem like a stolen idea, right?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Well, to be quite honest, I got the idea when I saw the gm n00b test reanimated. But when I did that test, I was called n00b-ish, while I use Game Maker since version 5, while I am a registerd and experienced user of GM, while I made games which even my classmates like! To cut a long story short:

gm n00b test = just fun
gm quiz = more serious

... I think some of the questions isn't that much related to gamemaker and the coding - but more very specific information. This test tests you for how much you know about the forum, the creator and the history of gamemaker, and general gml - you cannot say that somone are good in Game Maker from this test ...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

It's pretty difficult to find nice questions for the test. Currently the program picks 30 questions out of 40 in it's database. But if you know some more nice questions, please pm me and I'll add them to the database :P .

B.T.W. screenshots added to the first post

Some of those questions are quite ambiguous. Ah, yes, and I highly doubt knowing what Mark's hobbies are make anyone an advanced user.

WHAT?! I've been doing this for almost a year and I never even use the action tabs. I make games using scripts and pieces of code. Tell me I'm a "new user."

The questions are kinda not releated to GM (some of them). Should I know what Mark likes to do, to be experienced? Or stuff about the gmc? Its a nice test, but more boring than the gm noob-test, and I like funny stuff more than serious. :)

It seems to be that people with a high score in the gm n00b test have a low score in the gm quiz and people with a low score in the gm n00b test have a high score in the gm quiz. I'm uploading a new version now with 20 new code-related questions, hopefully that will do the trick.

I'm a novice? I've been using GameMaker since 2000, and I never use D&D, and I am a freaking novice? Let me ask you, have you memorized how many deactivating functions there are? Or what programs Mark Overmars made or what he likes to do in his spare time? This doesn't seem to be testing GM knowledge at all, just whether we are stalkers or not. The program was smoothly executed, but the questions weren't too accurate to skill with GM.
Good job with the program.
Bad job with the questions.

Users with correct rank: gamerFreaK1
Users with too low rank: jrgames+, Obsidian, Mauritz
Users with too high rank: none

So... I will lower the requirements of the ranks. Remember, suggestions for new questions are always welcome!

It said I'm a novice. I'm not a novice!

As people have said before, these questions aren't very accurate.

Who cares what Mark likes doing in his spare time?

The question of why people still use 5.3a is based on opinion, not fact.

Who actually memorizes how many different functions deal with certain things?

The presentation was nicely put together, but you really need to change those

questions, almost all of them.

Too many worthless questions... i mean come on:

1) who cares how many banners on the GM website?

2) who cares what forum software we are using?

3) who cares what mark does in his spare time?

Who gave Blijbol, or the creators of the GM n00b Test, the rights to tell us how good we are with Game Maker? It's like when people make "i'll rate ur name" or "ill rate ur siggy!!!!!" threads. Don't feel offended if you get a low rank, since what this quiz gives you doesn't have to mean anything.

Oh, and if you notice, Blijbol has a four star ranking, that's the highest I think.

this is pretty pointless, please add about like 60 more questions and make them on usefull stuff... I mean who cares how many reggistered members there are? or who created gamemaker?

those questions are pointless.

so far what i'v seen... this quiz is about how much you know about gamemaker and it's history, and not using it.

I really hated it. It do not test your programming abilities, it test if you studied the lest usefull things of GM. How would i know the number of functions dealing with Dll's? I give you a 7/10 because its a quiz, but you would have 10 out of 10 if it was about programming.

Everyone agrees with me but noone said "As sektor said..." or something. Damn! :)
By the way you can keep updating this with harder questions, and call it "GM experienced test" :(
