Yes I think the majority of AGK Users here seem to just use the 2D features, but there are a few 'special' people that are mad enough to use it for 3D too.   ;D

I personally love the 3D stuff once you get into it it really rocks . Released a few games in 3d now and am about to start work on number 4 . Like the 2d stuff too completed a few games in that as well.

Just kidding, AGK's 3D features are ok I guess.

I see you're running Linux mint 19 on one of your PCs I've also got mint 19 on a separate hard drive just in case windows goes tits up . You never know . Some say windows defender is rubbish but since I've been running it I've had no viruses or adware and it's been a few years now that I've been running windows 10. Although It did crash when installing a major update and I had to do a clean install. Thought I better mention that.

Yes I have a dual boot system for Linux.  On boot I can select Windows 10 or Linux Mint 19, then the appropriate hard drive boots up.  I do use McAfee Total Protection though on Windows 10.  A version of Linux on Raspberry pi too (on which I'm typing this).  The MacBook Pro is in it's case lol.

Nice collection of computers yes I have the dual boot when I plug in the external Hard drive via usb 3 . I did try and run it via a usb 3 flash drive but it was way too slow although did technically work. I also have another windows 10 installation on another hard drive what for I don't know but it may come in handy some time and is quite quick once loaded up.

Thanks, I like to have all bases covered with Windows, Linux and MacOS (but it's only 2 computers).  Plus the cheap little pi4.

Cool, mine are internal drives.  But I started with an external USB 3 one.

I'm really glad I took the plunge down the AGK 3d route and would recommend it to anyone . It really isn't any more difficult than the 2d stuff just different and making simple 3d objects is fun . Now the complicated models like people and peoples faces and hands is out of my league . I'm strictly low poly at the moment and maybe for ever . Been doing the 3d stuff since January and glad I did give it a go . For one of my games I combine 2d and 3d and they are both really useful . 3d may seem really daunting at first but once you begin to get your head round it it really is amazing . I thought it would take me 6 months to a year to produce anything but that just isn't the case . Had my first simple 3d game up and running in about 4 weeks  maybe 5 .
AGK2 tier one is an awesome language and should be mainstream. I do remember first downloading AGK2 and it took a while to get into but I am sure I made the right choice . I do think however TGC stating that it is easy to learn and anybody can do it is not strictly accurate . Yes for a computer language it may be on the easier side but computer programming is not for everyone it is a very skillful thing to learn and can get extremely complicated. Even AGK2. I bet that most people who try to do this stuff who have never seen a computer program before fail . I might be wrong but that's what I think. When I first paid my 25 quid for AGK2 I was coming from BBC Basic and stos and at first I felt like a fish out of water , but after six months or so I thought it was great . I still do . Anyway if nobody reads this it's fine .

True, but that's where forum communities come in.  ;)

lol very true, this is a great one.  And the guy in charge is not trying to sell you a language either...Or close it down on a regular basis.   ;)
