Title: Mac Maker
Post by: hawkeye on November 15, 2010, 12:38:36 PM
So I've search this across the web, but all I come across are forum posts from 2 - 4 years ago and so I'll ask again. Is there a game maker for Mac? It seems strange to me that the RPG Makers have not been adapted and all the new Windows makers are solely windows. Why has no one done this yet and is there one on the way? This is purely a curiosity because it seems to me that there's a huge community interested in having a mac maker.

I just don't understand why someone doesn't take one of the not so complicated rpg makers and open the code in C++ and adapt it to a .dmg compatible program? I'm not a programmer, but it would seem easier to take something that's already in existence and adapt it for another OS. Mind you for all I know thats the most difficult thing possible, but I've seen programmer's work with Python and just zoom through writing language, it's crazy.

you can't just "open the code in C++".

Though that's a poor excuse, it's likely because they don't have Macs to work on, and given that most of their target audience doesn't either, they focus on the Windows platform.

I honestly don't know why enterbrain is windows only, but it hardly matters when there's multiple ways ( to run ( windows programs ( on macs ( anyway (
