Question Wishing to create

Any one know of any programs I can use to make a 2D side scrolling shooter? I don't understand how to use Gamemaker and the 3D Game Maker is a piece of crap for any style game. Anyone know of any programs that work well and don't require manually written scripting?

Maybe you'll have better luck asking in the make your own game thread?

Sorry but I have no idea of any program to help you. I've never been a believer nor advocate of the 'program to make your own game' idea. By the way isn't "Wishing to create" just a little too vague of a thread title for your request?

If you're into c/c++, take a look at allegro.

Oh and personally I'm using SimpleDirect Media Layer for my game and so far its been great. Its very easy to learn, very efficient, and easy to cross-platform. The native language it uses is C, but it works with C++ and has bindings to several other languages like Java and Python. I recommend it to absolutely anyone thinking about writing their own game. Good luck
