I''m going places to places telling people all about the great program named "BYOND". It''s an acronym that stands for "Build Your Own Net Dream". The creators Dan (haven''t figured out his last name) and Thomas S Hehre spent long years creating this program. It''s a simple program called "Dream Maker", where you program it''s simple laungage! The syntax are simaler to VB, and JavaScript, and it comes with built-in functions. For example: On the right of the player''s screen, there''s a chat log. Under the player''s screen, there''s a command (for those who dislike HUDs). Dream Maker also comes with "Dream Seeker", where you get to RUN your Dream Maker program and it gets hosted upon BYOND.com, where everyone can see and play! The best thing about BYOND, is that it''s totally FREE!. You people should come check out BYOND, and see all the incredible games that have been programmed! (Some Goodies: ) Let''s say i wanted to tell the entire world "Hello", i''d simply do this: world<<"Hello" -- Then "Hello" would appear on the right of my screen, on the chat bar! Also, you have built in moving functions. Just set the image to the mob the mob to the client and you already have something that can be fun =) BYOND Come try it out, and don''t forget to mension "Crashed".

I am also a frequent and experianced user of this system, and my own view is that it''s a brillent, encapsulated community of eager individuals making their own online-game. There are annoying people who like to ''rip'' other people''s code etc, but on the whole it''s a rare community to come accross.

With ease of use comes less control and restrictions.


The system itself is very unique, it can be shaped and designed to fit your needs, controlling and restricting is easy.

O please, what are you trying to accomplish, I hope you don''t think that you can switch DX/OGL/SDL users to switch over to byond...

Oh REALLY?? well can it suit my needs? so how about if I wanted to make a 3D game, byond is a 2d game thingy, I don''t even know what byond is and don''t want to >:l

Oh don''t be so retarded. Who here has suggested that this is designed to compete with DirectX? It''s a completely different system made to do a completely different thing. You said yourself that you don''t know what BYOND is, and you don''t want to find out, so perhaps you should stop bashing it and go back to writing your brilliant DX game.

Only some BYOND users are what you think, there are select few users who only use the program for the sake of something to do, they used the program first thing, and they realised it's ignorent to just leave it behind, like most of you probably have. You don't judge a drink by it's packaging, so don't judge this system by it's popularity.

I enjoy BYOND, i''m not trying to prove a point that it''s the best programming system around the web and you SHOULD use it. No, i''m saying that it''s a great way to enhance your ideas, systems, graphic designing, gameplay for the bigger daddies. If you can''t please a player whom plays BYOND with your ''Great'' game, then what makes you think you got what it takes for a bigger project?

I used byond for a year but I found even if it is very easy to create multiplayer online games with byond, C++ is much better because you have more control and you can basicly do more then you would be able to do with byond.

I''ve tried BYOND.

It sucks.

Of course, that''s not very constructive. But BYOND appears to be online-only. That''s all fine and well, but seeing as it doesn''t come close to the power working with a 3D API and a more standard programming language such as C/C++/C# provides, and can''t produce stuff that doesn''t require an internet connection (am I wrong on that point? Honestly, I have a hard time believing someone would be so stupid as to make a game developement utility online-only...), I think it''s best to spend the time you''d spend learning and using BYOND to learn DirectX. You have all the stuff BYOND can do right there, and more. Including netplay (DirectPlay anyone?)

Use if you want to make a quick online game.

Forget about it if you want to write serious games.

No offense, OP, just my 2 cents.
