Hello all,

I've been interested in games as soon as I put a sega Genesis controller in my hand when I was eight. I loved making my own board games, MS word text adventures, and have enjoyed in-game editors like in star/warcraft and halo. I always thought it was a pipe dream, to make my own video games, and I focused on the academic path my family set in front of me. Now I've reconnected with my passion, and am super excited to explore this tool to make my own games!

My name is Amber, and I'm completely new to game making. I like old school games. I play some 3D games, but I prefer the old 2D platformers or sidescrollers for the GB or the SNES. Anyway, I needed to come up with a valid idea for a website, so I figured Why not go for a gaming website? (Hopefully I can make money off of fan made games.) Now that I have Stencyl up and running, I've got so many questions. I'm confused about things like gaming logic, how to get specific actor behaviors, what a boolean is, and much more. I guess I can post all my questions or a summary of my idea for a game somewhere else. I just need help because I know nothing about programming and the directions can be confusing at times.

...I've got so many questions. I'm confused about things like gaming logic, how to get specific actor behaviors, what a boolean is, and much more....

A significant part of programming is being able to take a complex problem and break it down into many simple ones. So a good way to start would be to first run through the crash courses, which will introduce the interface, general vocabulary, and other basics. Then make a simple game--something like Breakout or Snake. These games have simple logic and writing them will give you the foundation needed to tackle larger problems.

Hey I'm Chris, live in NH USA and am 29, married to my wonderful wife for 6 1/2 years. I didn't grow up with the gaming consoles much, adopt father HATED gaming. My bro and I would often have to go to other people's houses and be "baby sat" even as teens and we took this time to game with friends.
My first real game was the original Diablo that my bro got as a burned disc from his tutor and smuggled home.
Than we got a Gameboy, that Travis was given aby a school mate and smuggled that home.
Than a friend has a Sega and a few games, and they gave it to us, at that point my adopt father couldn't stop us lol. So we had sega for years.
My fav game was Desert Storm on Sega. I was more of a PC guy though. My favs on there were Diablo, StarCraft, and online Runescape (yup my first MMO lol).
Than I met my wife (re-met (Went to school together for abit)), and she got me into Oblivion, she had to unlock a really hard chest, and asked me to do it and I got it first try and never played the game before. Than she got me into WoW and we played off and on until about 6 month - 1 year ago. Again she should be the fishing thing and first try before i'd even played the game, fished out some hard to get fish.
Than we got the x-box, and we had fun with Viva Pianta, Mirrors Edge, Farming Sim and other neat games. My fav series was Assassins Creed. Oh and had RDR for atime since it was like the best cowboy game. Probably still is.
Than got the x-box One, and we got a collection of 30 Retro games (on one disc, for 30 bucks), than I got into Battlefield, BF4 and BFHL were my fav
We got rid of the x-box 1 when we "Gave up" gaming but kept the 360 and than we slowing started getting back into it, it mostly pc and tablets now lol.
My bud and I got some way narly ideas for gaming but I got to learn C++ if someone could teach me, cause we are going to need a crazy engine with 3D capability.

IF anyone wants to help us with our "Dream Game" it'd be appreciated.

I am very new to game making hence the Stencyl, did all crash course and read first like 5 help chapters 2 days ago and been practicing since

Cj8706!  Welcome.  Everyone here is pretty helpful.  2d is the way to go to start in game design... after I get it down I'll do some 3d with unity... but I love 2d games haha!  Let me know if you need help or mechanics made for games.  And I'd love to work on a collaboration.   Trying to make enough money to quit my job and go Indie developer full time :p I've been using stencyl on and off since beta testing.  Now going full blast into it!  I have some apps made with and without stencyl and live wallpapers in the Android store.. android's what I know best at the moment

hello good day,
I'm dustin from Philippines and I've been playing games for a long time and got curious on how to make one
so here I'am, Stencyl really caught my attention because first of all I'am not a programmer and know nothing about coding, and last this engine specialized on creating 2D games which really is my thing because I really like pixel graphics, downloaded this software months ago, its time to learn now. goodluck to me
