Great engine but have a question...

How can I change the resolution to a widescreen ratio for example, 640x360 or 320x180? If I try to change it in the room views, I get black bars and a distorted image. Also I cannot find these settings anywhere in the code. Thanks

Great Engine, needs GMS2 version and clarify stuff

This is probably the most complete platforming engine since the implementation of slopes, and I hope to give it 5 stars soon. I have found only two problems, and one of them makes it hard to adapt the project to different views and ports: The width and height of the viewport seems to be enforced somewhere in the code, but it is not on the control or the camera objects, and the black bars cannot be removed by changing the width settings on the IDE view and port options, any different view is streched or shrinked into the defined port, and it is not clear where should we change it. There is also a small bug that make you be able to "cling" on the invisible corners of slopes (a bit tricky to reproduce, but it happens), which should be quite easy to fix.

Kinda Works

I’m using GMS 2 and it was working just fine but now it doesn’t. It will compile but then it’s just a black screen when it loads. Anyone else have this problem?

Does not work

This does not work in GAMEMAKER 2 and does not work in GAMEMAKER 1.4 which I also have. It just does not open the file and you can not import it either. Disappointed.

Great engine

Best platformer base on the marketplace.

Tested in GMS2 2.1.3.273 and it works fine.

Well worth every penny!

This asset just saved me months of front work. For the money, it covers more then what a programmer would charge you for the same backside. This is a steal and works for our project. Jump on this deal. By far, one of the best 2d engines out here. Great work. Covers so much. Seems to work fine in GMS2 as well... the only add in I can see right now would be a lighting addon engine or build some kind of lights into the kit to allow moody lighting. Outside of these, I think it is great.

Good but..

This engine is good, but one big problem has the engine: You don't use delta_time for the movement! This is not very useful when the framerate goes down.

Can you add delta_time for the movement in the next update, please?

Gyorgy B 02 January 2017

Awesome!

Excellent work, Rupeck.
You could easily make a full game with added textures and enemies with this engine.
If you please can put sound in the engine that is something more amazing!

Charles P 27 July 2016

Wow.

This is serious business. Everything is here to facilitate your game design. The bones are solid as hell. Excellent work, Rupeck.

I would advise an outdoors room, to showcase the parallax features, and as someone below suggested, swimming when in the water, but none of that is required, since grasping this engine isn't the hardest thing in the world, even for a beginner.

You've done a great job.

Awesome!

I've started to make my own platformer engine and made many things in months but this has everything I wanted to complete! I just saved a couple of months of hard work.
Player/enemy moving, collisions, normal and moving platforms, attacks, enemies, ladders, damage/destroy effects, water physics and everything is perfect. You could easily make a full game with added textures and enemies with this engine.

20$ is nothing for this pack! Thanks!

Worth the money. Absolutely fantastic.

A full game made in this engine could be worth $20 itself, easily.

Reasonable logic recommended, but not required. If you take this engine as-is, go crazy. If you're ambitious, you'll be challenged, but that's the reality of GameMaker. This asset is simple for the hobbyist, yet versatile for the professional.

Updated frequently

While there are other engines out there, I am happy the Rupert keeps adding minor updates to this engine regularly. Possibly the best engine to start off your first 2D platformer.

EDIT: Looking forward to slopes!

excellent

the only missing thing is a written guide. I would add touch buttons for mobile devices and a push blocks, slope and rope system.

Thank you very much

Great assets, excellent for a mid-level user like me. There is so much value in this pack and it has helped me learn a lot of better practices for building my platform/Side-scroller games. Thanks again. Keep these valuable engines coming, they are great, GREAT self-teaching tools!

Not bad

I wish you added some preset sound effects that we could edit such as a jumping noise, swinging weapon, smashing a pot, stuff like that. Controller support also doesn't work on the main menu. Some overall documentation to help new people would be nice also.

Needs controller support

I love it, but as of right now it's useless for me without controller support. $10 to anyone giving me working code with both controller and keyboard controls.

Well commented, useful, and a good learning tool.

All of the scripts and object code are commented well, and the interplay between each inherited object is relatively easy to figure out. I would suggest some overall documentation to help complete newbies, but otherwise this is a really great resource for people looking to make a platformer. :)

Great!

I looked at the code (as far I understand their interaction), the code is well commented, but I 'd like you to arrange it a little more (for understanding the beginners, who will use the Engine for learning purposes, or at least a *.pdf file, that easily explain the interactions).

Great Engine

I haven't gotten too far into it yet but so far I think it is great! There are so many great features bundled with this and the code is well commented. I recommend this to anyone looking for a platformer engine.

Wishlist: Ladders, and ledge grab.
