MORE AGF FEATURES ADDED...

What more FREE added features?

Featured Image

Yes another update to AGF 2.0.. I have been spending alot of time on my macbook pro and I wanted to be able to run AGFwith only the touchpad. So Alex and I added a new multi-purpose toolbar at the bottom to do so.

The art featured in the sxcreenshot is some stuff I have been working on for a new DLC that I will eventually make an entire game from. MekTeka will be a giant mech combat. Multi-Player game where you build the levels and and the Mekteka mech into battle.

We are also working one a Virtual Table Top Gaming system that will allow you to build your maps and locations in AGF to play with your friends.

This will be a "Turn Based Multi-Player" DLC for the first interation adn we them intended to make it its own Application.

You make the rules. You make the playing pieces. This app will also feature a character creation system so you can design your own characters from assets that we provide or assets that you load via the AGF OBJ importer.

We are also working on AGF support for the Steam Workshop. More information on more features and both DLC will be available soon, so stay tuned..

Happy Creating..

Matt and the AGF team.

We want to fix your issues....

AGF Users,

It has come to our attention that some of the problems that we are seeing from users on the forums are running "Windows" but we cannot duplicate the problem here on a comparable and sometimes identical machine. This is odd because most of our development for AGF is on Windows 7 and 8 machines.

When we look further into these issues with the users personally, we discover that they are running illegitimate non-updated versions of Windows.

TO BE CLEAR...

We cannot offer any assistance to those not running a standard (official) copy of Windows as non legitimate versions have been proved to cause malfunctions in AGF and other software and drivers and as such we can't help these users until they have a legal copy to serve as a baseline for installation.

If you have an issue that we cannot duplicate on a comparable machine, on our legitimate and updated operating systems, we unfortunately have no other resource to help you.

If you do have an issue we cannot duplicate, it doesn't mean there isn't an issue.

We understand that these things will happen. We will however ask you to show us you running this app. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/ before we will help you find out what is going on with your installation of AGF.

I hate to have to go to this extent, but I will never be able to facilitate further development on AGF if my time and the time of our small team is taken up by us chasing ghosts in the (your) machine.

Running the validations app will ensure we are all fixing the same problem and not wasting each others time.

Happy Creating....

Matt

PS,

We did fix some bugs today too. Editor will now auto-save when an external player is chosen. Also automatically start the character in the center of the game area without a start locator present.. But you really should be placing start locators before you play.. The characters will start where you tell them to. So again, please, use the start locator.

The Packaged Game is completely stand-alone, DRM FREE, and redistribution of users game(s) is encouraged. AGF Packager will make a game for the OS that it was packaged on. The AGF packaged games are NOT intended for resale. It’s about creating and sharing with all.

More Information on what AGFPRO is and what you can do with AGFPRO


  • Users are able to create game levels and maps using the software and also place characters (provided with the software) to play and explore their levels with multiple player style options (Action Role Playing, Platformer, FPS)

  • Just to be CLEAR – AGFPRO is NOT a game engine. It is literally made using the Unity game engine. AGFPRO is a real-time, RAPID Game Environment Development Toolkit and is made to be used in concert with Unity Free and Pro for level/map creation. – However, AGFPRO does NOT need Unity to run or create levels/maps.

  • The scene files that users create in AGFPRO “Basic” and “Premium” can be imported into Unity4 Free and Pro using our AGF/Unity tools.

  • By using the DLC we have already released for AGFPRO (Fantasy Side-Scroller & Zombie FPS), users are able to create playable levels with AGFPRO (only – not viable with Unity) with a variety of characters, assets, gameplay mechanics and special feature, “Scene-Linking” to connect game levels

  • There are limitations to some asset packs “locked (L)” that limit the users from loading these assets into Unity. All unlocked asset packs are free of copyright and can be used via Unity for redistribution per the terms of the EULA ttp://media.wix.com/ugd/43457c_ee338ac5b4f644eb8b432518a8bb3d79.pdf

  • The redistribution or “sharing” of the games users are able to make using AGF and DLC “Players” is a feature we are working on at this time and will be made available to users at no additional fee

  • Users are also able to create and place specific game play mechanics that are provided in the software

  • Full customization of your levels and maps is possible with AGFPRO Premium and Unity Pro, whereby users are able to bring in their own assets and models to make their games unique and further commercialize, making a complete Stand-Alone game

Additional Questions RE: AGFPRO?

  • If you are interested in making a complete Stand-Alone game with unique characters, models, assets and game play mechanics not provided in AGFPRO and commercialize it for sale, you will need AGFPRO Premium and either Unity Free or Pro software

  • If you are a development team using AGFPRO + Premium, you will need one seat per team member using the software, but we do offer studio discounts, so be sure to contact us for special pricing

  • We have many schools all over the globe using AGFPRO to teach game development and design in the classroom, from middle schools to elite Colleges and Universities. We have a basic curriculum available that instructors are able to include in their course curriculum and we provide additional support that includes software updates, access to DLC, non-Steam versions of the software if necessary, user support and special feature integration upon request and based on the terms of the agreement. We offer special pricing for schools and we find that schools love using the software as it allows students the ability to create complete games within the limitation of a semester and is a great introduction to begin to interface with Unity3d, without users having to program, model, animate or script.

Game factory does not make games. It is a level / world design tool. A really good level / world design tool for Unity based games. You see everything in real time. You can play test your levels, run around and stuff, but its not a stand alone game game engine, just a level / world design tool. However, calling yourself Game Factory was slightly misleading, but whatever. On the forum, the developers hint at wanting to one day make it a stand alone game engine, but I'm not sure if its a hint or misleading. Since they call it Game Factory, I have to lean toward the potential of misleading here.

It is now a few months later and people are still asking if AGF is a game engine to make standalone games: http://ctrlv.in/399649/annotated

You can make some really great looking, lush environments. The tools are easy, robust and look fantastic. The video tutorials are great and explain a lot, even if they could be sped up a little for more advanced users.

The problem is there is nothing out of the ordinary from the default Unity 3D level editor. So if you're already developing for Unity, why not just use Unity? This is still a better editor to make levels and it will take you less time to make better levels.

The DLC packs offer a lot of variety. The FPS add on offers lots of great features, but there are already a lot of great FPS level editors out there. Game Factory FPS DLC expedites level creation with prefab rooms ala the Elder Scrolls editor, instead of having to make every wall. With all of that being said, its still not free. Just another add on to buy when Unreal 4 and Cryengine have plenty of free examples for every type of game, they're cheaper and they are stand alone engines.

Game Factory is worth it if you're a level designer for Unity, but to the average kid expecting to make a big game, nope. Look at actual game makers, Unity, Cryengine and Unreal Engine. As for Unity, its simple enough to pick up and design for, so this is a great benefit.

I have respect for the developers and respect for the tool, but I'm just warning people. It's not what you think it is.

Axis Game Factory is a level editor made with Unity3d that does pretty much nothing you can't do with Unity itself and maybe a few packages from its asset store.
Those packages will be cheaper than the Premium License for AGFPro.
Remember that this tool does not give you the ability to create games, just levels for some default characters.

Definitely not worth the price.

I'm not entirely sure who this program is designed for. It's basically a very simplified version of Unity, which lets you edit maps by deforming the terrain, and adding a limited number of assets.

You can then "test" your map by playtesting the map using a variety of pre-build "games". For example... if you choose FPS player, you will spawn with a gun, life meter, and if you set zombie spawn points, there will be zombies that spawn that you can shoot. That's about it.... there's no custimization options regarding any of the game elements in this "game factory".

After building a few maps in this program, I felt extremely limited as to what I was able to create, and there's not much creativity when the assets provided are a few basic houses, some rocks, and some walls...

Judging by the trailers, I'm assuming this was meant as a beginner tool for children to design their first "games", I personally thought it would be a fun way to design creative, and in-depth maps with a large number of provided assets, and then be able to design basic games to play with friends. (like RPG Maker) But sadly I was mistaken, and this program is mainly a "tool" to help Unity game developers design maps more efficiently.

This is a very fun and nice idea. BUT it has no grounds to it. I can't make skills and things. Really, all you can do is make a cool map. It should be called Axis Map factory. I want a REFUND.
