C++ Runner enters "very private beta"

Today’s “glog” post brings news: the long-awaited C++ runner is apparently entering “very private beta”. And the obligatory YYG rant: they actually got something done!?

Bad news on the Mac front, though:

On the other hand we’ve hit a barrier with teh [sic] Lazarus toolset on the Mac version and made very  little progress since I last updated you.

Oh, and something else to discuss about:

We’ve really done this work as a start of our program to have Game Maker apps running on other platforms.

Begin the speculation?

What do you think?

  1. They use runner data so they can eaily have debug messages with a massive drop in performance.
    If it actually compiled they wouldn’t have to create GM in 3 totally different development tools 3 times. =/
    Suprised YYG got anything done seriously it’s being soo long. Ive been a GM user since GM 4 and YYG has done nothing but screw things up (Softcrap) and diminish constant updates. (I have been rather angry at softcrap for poor service)

  2. C++ runner for other platforms? Hmmm seems a bit premature if they are not optimising the code for better performance – A little different statement to the one made a few months back by Yoyo?

    Mac running into problems? Im not supprised, thats what happens when freeware products are used for a commercial product. Thats why the pro packages charge so much.

    Anyway all these dreams of other platforms are a little bit irrelevant anyway, youre going to have to do some modding of most consoles even if there was a GM variant for them, and for the record, anyone with dreams of a Linux version of GM really doesnt need to bother. GM does run under Wine 1.0.0 (ive been testing it due to a few emails I have recieved), Ive done a little review on another blog but I will be further testing it and reporting any bugs.
