Im wondering if there's any way to make mmf games play on ps2, xbox, xbox360, etc. You catch my drift. That would be awesome if possible.

doubtful.

consoles have their own dev kits and sdk's so they are made specifically for a consoles platform. just like mmf2 games cant be made to play on linux and up until recently, without java, cant be played on mac.

if you wanna code for a console i'd suggest picking up some C# and the xna game studio 3.0 sdk for xbla.

edit: oh but you need a membership to xna creators club to submit games for peer review n such if you want to make money off them on xbla

I see. Well, my ultimate goal is to create games for a living so Im gonna look into what you said for sure. Im gonna major in computer science or game design. But for now, I just wanted to be able to play the games I created on TV. Or any other classic games for that matter. I know someone did it on an arcade machine but sadly I dont know how to or own one. Any ideas for the TV thing though?

well the arcade was just the arcade box with a decent and cheap computer and MAME i believe.

as for tv. there are probably ways of connecting a pc to display on to a tv set.

If you're looking to get in to game design for consoles, pitch an idea to Microsoft for the Xbox Live Arcade. Then once you get the ok, put together a design team and make it using the developer kit they give you.

You might be able to make it for the Xbox Live Arcade, via the XNA Creator's Club. It uses the .NET framework, I believe, so you'd just have to learn that and use the .net object. You'd also have to fork $100 over to Microsoft in order to test your games out. A bad investment if you can't actually get the game to ever work.

You could learn .NET programming and make your game that way, I suppose, but then you won't be using MMF.

I simply use an S-video cable between my laptop and my TV and play with a joypad.

Yeah, i got myself a nice length DVI cable (the chances are you already use one for your monitor if it's newish) as TVs often have a DVI input on them (for example my DVD player uses a DVI cable). The computer just recognises it as a second monitor, because that's what it is technically.

I just got myself a large-ish monitor and bought a TV dongle thingy, doing things the other way round like.

But the only way to get an MMF game on a console is to make a good enough one that some chaps will remake it for consoles. Unless it's got Java support so you can just port it yourself.

Actually, you pitch the game to Microsoft, they'll give you thumbs up or thumbs down, then the SDK. Once you have the SDK and you design the game, get it tested, rated, etc... give it back to them, they'll put it up on the market place, and you'll get a percentage of the earnings.

sorry misuse of xbox terms i meant xbl marketplace. as i assume so did adam.

you use xna which is free and downloadable, you dont need microsofts permission beforehand to use it or develop. once you have completed the game you need to be signed up to xna creators club as me and adam already mentioned which is round 100$ a year. once submitted it goes through peer review to make sure its stable and safe to play. then you can sell it on the market place.

I knew XNA at its most basic is free, but in order to actually test it on your Xbox you have to pay $100. A waste if you're never able to get it to work.

Interesting. Didn't know that. I did read up some where though, and I'm willing to accept it was wrong, but if you pitch an idea to Microsoft and they think it's good... they'll help you in some way, to bring it to the market place. Even if it means giving you an efficient SDK to work with. Not saying this is true though, look up on it though. Maybe you can find someone I missed.

Wow. That's a lot of information. Thanks guys, will definitely come in handy. So basically, one can use the .net object to create games in mmf and then can play it on xbox360. But you cant actually see how it works until you hand over the $100 to them for testing. And after you pitch the idea, right??

As for the Tv dongle thingy. How does it work? I read some reviews about it and not all of them resulted in me wanted to buy it. And yeah, I do have a fairly new monitor.
