Thanks very much for your time guys,

I've had a look at Construct some time ago and was very impressed.

I think I'll be using this for any future projects I probably won't ever find the time to undertake. Clickteam have pushed me just a little too far this time around. Is generally a far cry from a smartly designed, and welcoming place like this.

Well it's a whole story...
The application I've been writing since 2002 worked great under Games Factory and Multimedia Fusion 1.5 but very badly under MMF2.

They weren't interested in helping to fix the file and when I tried to help someone with the same problem on their forum I was attacked publically by Yves one of the developers. He was extremely aggressive and unfair. Unfortunately the forum conversation took place too long ago for it to still be available.

I mentioned the problem with the file recently on the forum with regard to their work on "hardware acceleration" and they claimed that it was my fault as a "developer" for trying to shoe-horn too much into MMF2 without hardware acceleration. This is obviously nonsense if my application worked fine under the original MMF.

They then realised that they had gone too far with that one and deleted their post and mine.

This and the fact that HWA has taken forever for them to complete and they have been cagey about its progress.

I can't help feeling as though my project is, in effect, prisoner to a company that has little clue about what it's doing and is rude and abusive to its customers. I don't know but my overall impression of Clickteam at the moment is one of a company circling the drain. Any input from users as to how to avert this is treated with great disdain.
