Just a simple question from a newb: Is it possible to make 3D games with MMF 2 and if it is, is it possible to make 3D objects with MMF 2 alone, or do I need some other program for that, such as Jamagic or something? :/
The U.S.'s army is efficient in advancing but what happens in guerilla warfare?

Jamagic is old and abandoned by Clickteam and way more difficult than MMF, so I wouldn't try using that.
I think there are some 3D extensions out there, you just gotta find 'em. The perspective object and doing some tricks with active system boxes will manage you getting some limited 3D, as well as the Mode7 extension.
I doubt very much that even with extensive MMF knowledge and a savage collection of extensions, a 3D game would be possible.
You could pull of a sudo 3D game with some clever use of Mode 7, but even then it would be poor even at MMF's best.
If your really interested in making a 3D game and have little or no knowledge of programming or 3D modeling (im not saying you do) then there are programms (not as versitile as MMF) out there for such a project.
The line between 3D and 2D games creation is tremendous and as such, programms like MMF will most likely never implement 3D creation possibilities.
It all depends on what you're doing. You can fake alot of 3d effects, but that's about it. Examples, GTA1+2 style buildings, 3d Starfields (Lots of math), Mode 7 Racers. There was a christmas entry that was a 3d game (Gool2) unfortunately, the game itself wasn't exactly great; but the coding was impressive.
