To make a long story short my game now thanks to another update, my game is so glitchy it doesn't even look right. First off it gives me oodels of errors thanks to them removing the global game setting "treat uninitialized variables as 0". That can easily be fixed but is still very annoying.
Then there's the fact Temp Directory Include Files no longer work, so that's A LOT of code to update. Plus it really sucks having the game in a zip and can't be played from that zip directly anymore because the include files MUST be in the same directory, which suck all the more.
But now it looks Like YoYo is $150 richer out of my wallet for the sole purpose I bought their product to make 3D games and got ripped because 3D lighting seems to be no longer supported. And then there's the fact that most people make 2D games with this particular engine, so I can't really say that this problem will EVER be fixed. It's only a matter of time before my currently compiled gm8.1 game will no longer be compatable with Windows 8 and other future OS coming my way quicker than expected.
I now consider GM for 3D use to be obsolete for this very reason. It only had the potential to get better, but I never would've thought it would get worse.
Thank you YoYo! (Not really)
If this problem never gets fixed I don't know if there is a way since my dad is the one who bought it but personally I'd love a refund on both of their current GM products. Because It's looking like a total waste. All games I ever intended to make with this in the future were going to be 3D so yeah, REALLY hope 3D lighting gets fixed.
Excuse Me I'm really upset for being royally screwed. I'm just glad to know it was unintentionally. But the fact is it still happened.
Have a blessed day.
