I have TGF but would like to know what enhancements there have been to make it worthwhile upgrading to TGF2

Thanks!

Almost everything. TGF2 is a skinned down MMF2. The only bad thing about TGF2 is that they left out extension support.

Go for MMF2.

No alpha channels either, and other things. I agree with DaVince, go for MMF2. Limiting yourself to standard objects just to save a few bucks seems pretty stupid to me. However, it should be noted that TGF2 already comes with most standard MMF 1.5 objects (no MooClick or MooSock though), which is still a huge upgrade from TGF1.

I thought TGF2 had MooSock, MooGame and MooClick... But I don't think it has the Event List Editor.

Does it have the Moo objects? They're at least not included in the demo version.

#1 reason why you would never use TGF again: 262 active object limit. That was the most awful thing of TGF.

Wasn't he asking enhancements from TGF2 compared to TGF? 3
Well, guess you're right. But at least that limitation is gone from other klik products.

"In the many years i used TGF i never had a problem with the 262 object limit."

I guess it depends on the kind of game you want to make, and how much you want to limit yourself when it comes to enemies, particles and effects.

Slink: Err, why?

Why the illogical number of 262 objects? 256 would have made sense at least.

I got 256, I think.

Edit: Nope, it's 266 on my TGF 1.04.
Edit 2: Did another test: I get to 266 with only counter objects, but 262 with 1 counter and the rest actives.

I find myself getting annoyed with the small changes to things in MMF2. I can just work TGF much faster than MMF2.
