Google Chromium is open-source, right? So is there a way to hack it to bits and bundle our html5 games in with it to make it a standalone EXE?

GM HTML5 can export exes as well. Why would you want to hack Chrome to do it?

Man... I could even make entire WEBSITES with this, it's like, breaking all the rules! I'm very excited, this is going to be a very respectable tool for web development I'm sure.

Doing this would make your website about as popular as those websites created entirely in Flash.

Chrome is also compatible with linux and mac.

Not true. It doesn't all have to be sounds and moving images.

....

Then I saw the RRP of $199 o_O, oh but beta is $99?
I was feeling a bit "blugh" about the $99 price tag, none-the-less I signed up for the beta LAST NIGHT. Then I wake up and I get a $20 discount code!? YESSSSS. I'm about 80% set on buying it, i'll have to try out the beta tomorrow though to make sure it's worth it (which I'm sure it will be).


...



Just to avoid some disappointment: you cannot try out the beta. There is no free trial version. You will simply have to buy it.

Haha so you're saying I signed up to have the chance to buy the beta? So people who haven't signed up will have to wait till it is out of beta to purchase?

That's fine I guess, thanks for the tip mark :). I still think I'll be buying it.

No, the beta will be available to everyone at the price of $99 USD. When it comes out of beta, the price will change to $199 USD. Those who signed up for news on the beta version will receive an additional $20 USD discount - if they purchase it within the next few days.

What Mark means is that there won't be a free lite version of HTML5. If you're interested in trying the HTML5 version of Game Maker, you will have to purchase it.

Hope this clears things up.

Edit:
To clarify further, if you purchase the beta version of Game Maker HTML5 - You will not have to pay again once it comes out of beta.

Not only that, but it's been the 22nd for over 20 hours!

Chrome is also compatible with linux and mac.

You specifically said you wished to create an exe. exe's can only be run on Windows.

Anyway, we've spent years complaining that our audiences are limited due to not being web friendly, I don't see a reason why we shouldn't just share links.

If you wish, most browsers allow you to "Save as" a webpage, for offline use. So long as the user has a browser installed, then this could work.

Not true. It doesn't all have to be sounds and moving images.

But it does have to spend time on a loading screen, and it will cut out a significant number of users (at least 30%, more depending on what systems GMHTML5 relies on).

Exactly right.



And there is just a few hours left to wait.

LOL... yeah, we're almost there guys. As things go up, some issues in the store have become apparent. A couple of folk have managed to buy and download it, but you will have to do an update and re-enter your key when the proper build goes up.

We'll tweet, blog, and generally shout very loud about it once it's "officially" out :biggrin:

I don't know about you guys, but I'm really excited to see what everyone does with it!!

First of all, please wait for the proper build.

Second, please reports bugs through the bug reporting system, and not here.

Third, first do some additional testing. Is it just this sound, or does it apply to all sounds?



Sound definitely works for me. But conversion can be a bit slow when the sound is really long.

Telling me to wait for the proper build is like telling a 12 yr old to sleep on christmas eve. I have been up for the last 36 hours waiting for this :tongue:

Its all sounds. Even if i create a new project and import a sound not included with Game Maker HTML5 it doesn't work.

Patiently waiting for tthe proper build to go live so I can spend this money burning a hole in my virtual pocket. Got a small project ready to port for some testing out then it'll be playing time, I miss getting a new toy and being really excited.

Edit :

@Mayhem Games : You should have just waited for dinner and not spoilt your appetite with tempting sugary treats.

Ye, I also went directly to the HTML5 page on the main site but it had a September 22 link that linked back to the page I was on, so that was a dead end.

I'll wait until the eager mobs are through storming the Bastille, before I try to purchase. Sounds like some minor issues need sorting.

No big deal. The discount coupon is good until September 27 (which coincidentally, is a Tuesday. The same day as the storming.)
