    Now I think it just needs some graphical polish and it will be a really nice package.

  3. Nice, can’t wait for full version and the decision that people who bought before 2009 get free upgrade or not. (If not a reduction will be usefull :)).

    Goes everyone have pro edition of the RC, or does it detect if you’ve got pro?

  5. Gamma6 says:

    I am excited for the release too. Not so much for the beta anymore (since the novelty has worn off) but it was confirmed that I would be eligible for a free upgrade thanks to my recent purchase.

    Obviously everyone has the Pro version so that they can test Pro features, same as the other two betas.

    GM + rotate and scale abilities = Excellent Package

  13. Gamesmaker says:

    Yes, its nice. I working with Windows 7 and have the GM Version 6.1. So it does not work. And I dont like the Version 7.

    I hope in this new version it is posible to change the language in german for example. So its easier for me. Not the funktions, but the build-in tutorial and helpfile.

    I am curious about the Gamemaker 8. I can not wait.

    Does anyone know if the gmk files will also stop working? Will they run on a finished and free version of gm8?

  15. Joe B. says:

    @Steven Doesn’t look like it: “The same applies to all games created with this beta version.” A warning message pops up whenever you save or run the game, as well.

  16. Jesse says:

    Does anyone know exactly when it come out?

  17. Jardson Jean says:

    That will be completely awesome.
