With arrogance like that you just might have proven devolution is correct. I disagree with you, so just as my topic predicts, you instantly think I'm a dumbass. Whether evolution is right or wrong, makes no difference. Whether any individual thinks evolution is fact or not, this doesn't at all determine how smart that individual is. I'm not calling you stupid. May I kindly remind you it's arrogance like that started the holocaust, black slavery in the US, and many major unfortunate events throughout history clearly reflect if there is anything in the universe that is most destructive (and self destructive) it is arrogance over something as incredibly silly as a harmless disagreement. So if you are intellectually superior over me that's real cool and all but to straight up tell me I'm a dim bulb because I disagree with you that's just as stupid as I were to do the same thing to you.

Arrogance is an emotion often felt when someone can't stomach hearing a conflicting opinion. So to make the conflicting view go away he or she emotionally zones out all reason and decides to meditate on blind (and often false) superiority, when will humanity learn? That's exactly what brought me to post this, everyone thinks they know fucking everything and anyone who dare disagrees is treated like absolute shit as if they did anything wrong or as if they are as stupid as being accused of. Everyone acts like they have so much evidence when really I'm certain none of us are right. People can sit on their holy thrones and be arrogant until their heads turn red and lose oxygen. Have fun with that. Anyone else out there who's noticed this destructive pattern?

Also, you clearly don't know the dirrence between science and theory. Saying evoltion is science is just as out of place as saying christianity is science. When I said true science can be observed directly I meant just that. You don't seem to be connecting the dots.yes, sometimes we need to test a hypothesis by observing the cause and effect of certain thing in order to prove something else. But that's just it, science can actually be tested theories can't. You can breed pigs until the day you die farmer Joe, the pigs will not change one bit long after you and your descendants are dead. Yes microevoltion is science, that's because we can actually test and see it take place when fucking a butterfly. Macro evolution can't be tested by fossils or living things, because that requires us to find a way to either travel time or expand our life beyond a million years. Both of which is best left in fairytale sci fi movies. we shouldn't act like we know these things for certain trust me we have no way of knowing these things if we tried.

Mutations according to modern science clearly suggest nothing positive. If you think a goat born with five legs is proof of anything remotely close to a positive mutation, please also consider if that goat gets fucked by a she-goat I can garentee the baby goat will have four legs. What about that guy(s) in Asia born with two heads? Both heads have a wife now, and their kids have one head.

Okay, every version of Christianity (Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Mormans, etc) all believe they are going to heaven
Hey, *whispers* you forgot muslims :P that's why I said etc :P I already wrote a book that no one in a right mind would have enough patience to read without skimming

Seriously, how do they all up and decide at one time in a split second, that they are all going to move at the same time? That is amazing! This doesn't just apply to birds and religious people, I have a tendency to believe this applies to everyone. We all have traits that can be categorized as predictable or "rehearsed". There's just different categories such behavior falls under. Monkey see, monkey do, and monkey will do until it becomes second nature.

If I am made up of all the same things as a desk or my house, how is it that I can feel things but the desk can't when I make a scratch in it? If I made a really advanced robot that could imitate humans so well you wouldn't know the difference, would it actually have feelings? I could make the robot "pretend" that it feels, but would it really feel? This goes back to "I think, therefore, I am" Yo man that's pretty deep. =P

What if I make an exact replica of you, down to the exact super position of every single atom, and stood both of you side by side, which one is the real you? Okay I really have no idea where you are going with this one :P

Prepare to comment with TL;DR

I am a Christian, and a sorry excuse of one you guys all know that. But something has been giving me major doubts about whether I think God truly exists, this topic is about that.

1) Religions are always right and anyone who doesn't agree with them are going to hell

Okay, every version of Christianity (Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Mormans, etc) all believe they are going to heaven and virtually anyone who disagrees with them on who God is, or on whether He exists these people who dare disagree will be thrown into hell. I find this concept quite disturbing, and it's very hard for me to grasp why a loving God would do this. I don't know if there is more to it than that, but at a glance it doesn't seem fair.

•Catholics, specifically the most traditional ones believe in the same Bible Protestants do, but the Catholics also believe in several books that to their perspective were meant to be in the bible but the Protestants took those books out. These traditional Catholics believe Mary was sinless, just like Jesus Christ, and that they can pray to Mary, as well as many other profits besides the Trinity. So basically anyone who doesn't agree with the Catholic Bible is going to hell.

•Protestants believe everything the Catholics do minus the additional books that may or may not be a part of the sacred Word of God. They belief Jesus Christ is the I only way to God, so praying to Mary or anyone other than the Trinity is thought of as not Biblical. Which means people who do that and think they are supposed to pray to Mary, etc. they are going to hell for not believing in the right version of God. Anyone who doesn't believe in God or the right version of Him will also go to hell. The Protestant Bible, even though this is the one I personally believe to be the right version, it is just as confusing as just about any other conclusion as to how this universe came to be.

•Jews believe in only the old testimony, so they believe Protestants and Catholics are going to hell because they believe in the wrong Messiah. The real one hasn't come yet. Protestants believe salvation is a free gift that doesn't need to be earned through good works but rather by faith and a heart genuinely seeking to live for God and to love Him for what he's done. They believe we have no choice but to live in sin while on earth, because only Jesus was sinless. Jews don't believe this, they believe we can achieve favor with God and salvation from our good works, and we are capable to stop sinning. Again, anyone who doesn't agree with Jews are going to hell.

•Mormans have a faith based a vision a man had of an angel, the angel's name was Moroni, and Moroni told this guy that Christianity is a lie and not what God in tented to be labeled as his Holy Word. These people believe they can become their own God, and own and command their own gallaxies after they die. Anyone who disagrees is not going to have these rewards.

•All religions, Christianity or not, anyone who disagrees with them is going to hell. All of them think they are right and that they know everything and for all they know none of them are right.

2) Evolutionists are always right and anyone who disagrees is disagreeing with science and are ignorant morons

•Evolutionist believe based on fossil records and origins that living creatures over millions to billions of years will gradually transform from one species to the next in a way that in most cases will benefit the species if it is dominant over other species. Though it does make some sense where these guys are coming from, I've researched this and it has just as many holes in it as any religion does. You can't live for 1 million plus years so technically there is no concrete visual evidense of this unless you can go superman and warp to the future and see if anything has actually changed. Science is concrete and can actually be observed directly, it is not guess work. You can conclude by jumping that the earth has a gravitational pull, which is something that can be directly observed and tested.

Looking at fossils and every time you are disappointed because here and there you'll find a skeleton that doesn't make sense on your guesswork, you then conclude there are missing links yet to be found. FWI if evolution could be proven we'd find ton of missing links. If we find like one or two that doesn't mean anything because just about any extinct species we could call a missing link if we wanted. If we can find one species we believe adapted into something else then how come we can find any other of the several thousand variations in between? If apes evolved into us how come we see a ton of ape and human skeletons and hardly anything the could be a possible transition? I' know it's possible and it makes sense why but my point being evolution is just as likely in it's current state to be proven as fact as just about any other conclusion about how this world came together.

3) Proof of both a higher deity and the conflicting lack there of.

•People found Noah's Ark fossilized, it was the same size scripture mentioned, it was in Turkey, which is where the bible said it came to shore after the flood. Tons of fossilized animail poop, suggesting there were animals on the ship. The architecture was quite noticeable, primitive staples that held the wood together were easily identifiable. They also found primitive anchors which helped keep the boat from rocking side to side during storms. The Ark is now it's own museum in Turkey. I hear all the time at church and from friends of my family about miracles including healing of the sick and raising of the dead after being dead for more than a day praying all in between, but I've never seen this ark or these miracles first hand.

•People also found much more missing links than I initially realized and I saw photos. But just like what was supposedly proof of Christianity I never saw these things in person.

IKR I bought BlitzMax and just a week later I discovered it was no longer supported so I bought monkey ($80 robbery, but it's really my fault not BRL's) I really should've read up more on it I wouldn't have bought max if I already knew about monkey at that time.

@popcade I bought monkey a while back but one thing that isn't clear with me, it now says monkey is open source, but it also costs money for all platforms, which doesn't make sense to me. Is Mark referring to just the monkey module is open source or is everything including mojo open source too? How the heck can they manage selling it all if they give out the source?

Better compatibility with GMS is my vote. Once that is done and GMX loading and saving is completely stable with a recent version of GMStudio we can then start an android port IMHO. Enigma and LGM shouldn't be rewritten as of now that is a waste of time, LGM may be written in java but that doesn't matter GMStudio's IDE is written in Delphi which is just as slow but no one really cares because what really matters for the most part is fast games, because games need to be fast and not lag to sell well, whereas IDE's typically don't use up that many resources so unless you have a project the size of China there's no room for any cause of lagging. The compiler shouldn't be rewritten either. Bugs should be fixed with what we currently have.

Priority List Summary:

1 - Bug fixes and complete GMX reader/writer
2 - new platforms
3 - New features that ENIGMA doesn't have yet (whether they are from GMS or not)
4 - New IDE

But don't replace the compiler with LLVM this would be a turn off and people might not be as likely to try ENIGMA because this project will only get noticed if it has anything that GMS doesn't have, because no matter what GMS will always have things Enigma won't, we need at least something to show our engine is worth using for more so than studio for whatever reason that may be. This could be one of those reasons.

If all these people leave I flat out refuse to let this become vaporware. If it means I should spend hours learning how to expand this project myself I'm really close to the point of doing that.

I recently started developing with GMStudio for the OUYA, which is an Android OS based videogame console. It was awesome, I bought an OUYA on Amazon and it shipped directly to my front door in less than 48 hours. Then I found this:

Quote
We spoke with some of the homeless for their opinions on the Ouya console.

“I figured I might as well try the thing since I was busy getting more water,” mentioned Jeff, “When I had a home, I remember playing games like Super Mario World on my Nintendo. These games on the Ouya are not as good as the really old ones I used to play so I can’t see how this can possibly survive in today’s market. Do you have any change?”
Source: http://www.p4rgaming.com/homeless-invade-ouya-parking-lot-booth-say-ouya-is-not-a-console-fit-for-the-21st-century/

It appears this console is just as bad as mobile, but it's not a surprise, since it uses the same OS.

My thoughts exactly. Flash games can't be played on most devices so free apps are flash on the go. literally everyone I know only gets free apps. Whether android or iOS. I was the only person I knew who actually bought apps but I certainly don't waste my time with that anymore.

I also find it hilarious how all these people are saying html5 is the future of free mobile gaming when both on my iPod and my android tablet, html5 has been around for roughly 2 years now but they still run slow as shit on my devices and so slow even the most basic games aren't playable (not to mention there's no sound on ios). Html5 is slightly faster than flash on desktops, which is cool, but html5 game creators shouldn't waste their time on mobile browser games it's not worth it almost no decent game is going to go faster than 5fps in a mobile browser. They just don't have enough hardware support, this including all android and iOS devices.

About the whole "1 day to create" scheme, YYG and all of their showcase quotes put so much emphasis on how the games were made in about a day or so and they brag about it as if such rushed, short, small efforts is even a good thing. Games should take time to be expanded and polished, stretching the limits, not just one tiny day of creating something stupid and calling done when it clearly isn't, then moving on to another stupid 24 hour project.

"Okay I have GMS they said games can be made in one day so let me quickly get this over with, hurry up, be a lazy ass and submit it to the appstore at 11 PM tonight flat and yay I'll be fucking ritch you just wait and see."

Glad to know I'm not the only one who sees this. Yet it's funny because I'm attempting to rise above the others and make "real" games that deserve to be in the appstore and I fail miserably in the process. I'm still working on it though.

Come to think of it, what's your current plans in the techno world, Robert? Are you still pursuing game development, or software, or are you getting turned off by digital development overall? You have an obvious gift when it comes to programming, I'd hate to see you scrap that talent. :)

Quite honestly if I had the kind of money to bribe you Josh, and Robert and ISM, and anyone else who may quit or already has quit on this, I'd do it in a heartbeat, but I can't drive and don't have a job yet even though I'm 19 if only you guys didn't make this conclusion until after I started making some decent money to bribe you guys with. Not a single developer or member that leavesthis project or community will be forgotten or not missed.

Sorry to see you gone, too. I thought you were our last hope and now that's ruined too. And thanks to everyone who'd rather argue and ridicule than actually use that same time to develop more, we really didn't need that, and that's what is ultimately destroying this project.

So many people have bought YYG's games, we are talking hundreds of thousands here. If mobile games are the future of gaming the future of gaming is shit. Just like everyone else who shits up the appstores, YYG clearly don't deserve the attention they're getting. I particularly find buying Froad to be the dumbest use of a dollar I could think of I realized after buying it. All these GMC/sandbox geeks drool and orgasm over Mr. Karoshi and They Need To Be Fed while I for one find those two games to be almost as bad as Froad. There's several levels  (almost most of them) you can beat first try in under 30 seconds without even giving the game your full attention. Even very early Mario and Sonic games did better than that, each level on these take at least several minutes.

They Need to be Fed has only one "enemy" or way to lose in almost every level - static spikes. Early Mario and Sonic games have not just spikes but all sorts of enemies, great variety, too. Every level has several different types of enemies all act differently from one another. Almost every level introduces a new type of enemy. Old Mario and Sonic games have boss battles, none of YYG's games have this.

Sure, there are a few that can take up a few hours, you can be lost or lonely and pull the thing from your pocket and bypass a few minutes of boredom.
But generally, there aren't many games on mobiles that you'd go out of your way to play.

I keep seeing game developers claiming mobile gaming is the future of gaming. If that is true it is game over for me because I am in no way gaming on some dinky phone or iPad when I have a 28" LCD and a 50" Plasma to game on. Fuck you game developers, you are writing your own future wishes against our true wishes. The real reason they say that is because it is less work for more money. It's all about the money and nothing else.

Why is it a stupid idea to publish mobile games? This is why: http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/JakeBirkett/20130122/185245/PC_is_not_dead_and_mobile_is_shit_with_Charts.php
