  1. 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.

  2. 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.
