In Topic: Speech Dialog Extension

Can anyone confirm if this works with the steam version? I am getting an error, but it does not tell me what the error is.

It seems like Studio has problems showing error messages for extensions, you can fix this by importing the gml instead of using the extension for it.

The errors are:

In script dlg_filter line 22 pos 2: Unknown function or script: execute_string
In script dlg_variables_set line 1 pos 1: Unknown function or script: execute_string
In script dlg_load line 11 pos 6: Unknown function or script: variable_global_exists
In script dlg_refresh line 3 pos 23: Unknown function or script: variable_global_get

Of course these are because the respective functions have been removed.

I've told you to try out stuff besides GameMaker long ago, and here you are.

Overmars is no longer the owner of GM...he sold it to yoyogames

Mark didn't sell it, and he is still a (somewhat) important member in YoYo Games, although he doesn't develop Game Maker anymore.

Game Maker is still in Delphi but is planned to switch to C++ for the next major version. G-Java pretty much fell apart and got superseded by G-Creator, which was pretty much a clone of Game Maker.

After the whole decompiler fiasco, since version 7 the game maker files have been encrypted to help prevent decompiling, but it didn't seem to help much.

Game Maker has expanded into several versions: the Standard one which everyone knows and loves, the Mac version which lets people make games for Mac, a HTML5 version to make web-based games which will release sometime soon, and Game Maker Studio which will be able to export games to a bunch of different platforms and is for professionals.

YoYo Games has also published some Game Maker games onto the iPhone, iPad and Android.

I wouldn't know about actually considering that actual intelligence considering it just uses mathematics to figure it out.

Realize the only winning move is not to play, and press the close button at the top right.
