I wish I could post in the French section of the forum, but I am afraid that, if I do so, I will make a lot of mistakes, since I can understand French very well, but my abilities to speak/write in French are very limited, due to lack of practice. Feel free to answer in French though
First of all, thank you for this great piece of software. I was recently looking for a tool like Game Develop, and I was actually disappointed by most of them, mostly because of the poor functionality and/or the very annoying thing they claim they are “free” only to advertise “premium accounts” or “subscriptions”. Apparently, Game Develop is not like that. It is free (as in “freedom”, “beer”), has a lot of features, and runs smoothly most of the time (I had a few crashes here and there, but nothing really important). I especially liked the fact it is based on Free software for everything, including compression, video support, etc.
Now, if there is a thing that it is really missing, that’s the documentation. Built-in help is very limited at the moment, both in French and English, and most of Game Develop’s features are not apparent to the user. For example, I needed quite some time to realize that converting a number to a string is done by the function VariableString, or that to concatenate strings it is enough to use the “+” operator, such as “Game”+“Develop”. I guess that, even though I am using Game Develop a lot the last days, I am still not aware of most of the functions I can use for scripting. The built-in examples help to realize things, but a more serious user would definitely need a decent built-in help, providing information about all available functions. I am afraid that, as it is now, many users will give up using game Develop early, just because of the lack of documentation. So, I would like to ask if you are planning to improve the built-in help. In my humble opinion, improving the documentation and fixing bugs should be the first priority in the current stage of the project.
Again, congratulations on your great software, and keep up the good work!
