Windows Movie Maker??? Can you even get that for Windows 10 any more?
I used Sony Vegas years and years back when I used to do wedding videos. Adobe Premier was bloody awful, by comparison. Of course, Vegas isn’t owned by Sony any more. So I just plumped for the middle-of-the-road Platinum edition which was about £70.
Bit pricey to make one video, but hey-ho… would like to think it’s the first of many.
You have to be logged in to a developer account to download the Steamworks SDK.
IMHO, you should be putting Monkey 2 on Steam. The exposure would easily be worth the $100 fee. You can sell donations, subscriptions, etc. as DLC…
Steamworks integration is badly needed in Monkey 2. I can’t image shipping a PC game in Current Year that does not have achievements, etc. I was always disappointed the previous languages did not include built in functions for Steam.
But all in all: Did I get this right: When I’m doing a game with Monkey 2 I can upload it to Steam (of course with that $100 fee) without binding any Steam SDK stuff when I don’t want to use achievements and so on?
You can upload your game without achievements if you want. I would strongly recommend adding them though, as well as Trading Cards and the associated Emoticons and Backgrounds. I think you also need to start Steam integration to get the Steam Overlay to work.
These things are some of the things Steam has over being a Pie Rat. I think you want to encourage legit purchases any way you can.
