DO NOT use Game Maker.
1. If you want to make a decent game, 90% of your game creation will be scripting. The drag and drop is very limited, and only good for very simple games.
2. C2 should get an exe wrapper soon.
3. In game maker, 50% of the time is spent getting past its awful bugs,
features, and generally useless interface.
4. Have fun getting help from the Game Maker community.
Trust me. Use C2.
