In Topic: Studio: Standard Now Free - Upgrade To Pro For $25

Oh, coolies. Not sure if I actually have any use for the Professional version though, almost feel compelled to buy it to support GM anyway. I'll think about it.

Great! So wait, is this a permanent license or is it only so I can upgrade to proffesional until the offer expires?

In Topic: Moving On...

Don't underestimate the complexity of learning another language, specially if it's just the first time you have tried to move on to another language. That's the easiest way to fall into the "wait, this isn't like [previously learned language], this sucks!" hole.

GML will have build up your logic, and got you familiarized with the basics of programming, but that's all, C++ really isn't much like GML. To an extent. Having learned GML will certainly make learning it easier than having no programming experience, but realize that C++ is its own different thing.

I'm against "moving on" from different programming languages, each of them is useful and good at different things, even Game Maker, thanks to its useful IDE.

In Topic: Why I Love Gmc!

I don't think the community itself is deserving of much love, it's... I don't know, sort of hostile? Dysfunctional? I mean, computer geeks aren't exactly well known for being charming individuals. What I love about the Gmc are the games the people make, not the people.

In Topic: Software Piracy

The funny thing is, most of the arguments that classify piracy as stealing (AS STEALING, NOT AS WRONG, PLEASE DON'T GO OFF ON TANGENT), can be applied to buying the item from a reseller. Lots of persons everyday buy goods from second hand sellers without realizing this often is just as harmful as the act of pirating/stealing itself.

Personally, I don't think pirating is quite the same as stealing, not even close, but whether it is morally wrong/admissible/justifiable to do it is a whole other argument that I personally have no interest in, because opinions aside, it IS a fact that it has negative effects on the economy of the copyright holders, and that's the end of the argument for me, although, some companies deserve it... *cough*recordlabels*cough* :)
