Must be a new product on the way...

Any chance us suckers that just paid $90USD for Dark Game Studio alone could get Dark Physics, Dark Lights, Dark AI and Extends for nicks?

No new product, just trying out a limited time Bonanza with DGS to see what the interest might be. For those of you who just missed the Bonanza announcement and bought DGS in the last week, email me directly at lee@thegamecreators.com and I'll see what I can do

The skeptic in me says something fishy is afoot. Like support will be dropped for these plugins? The cheap-skate in me says I am ordering this.
[EDIT]I just bought it, and I've owned DBPro for 7 years and the only other plugin I've bought was BlueGUI, and that was many years ago too. Sometimes it takes a ridiculous deal to get $ out of someone's wallet.

I'm not a real programmer but I play one with DBPro!

If you own Cartography Shop as part of the DGS product, then yes you can get an upgrade price from us to buy 3D World Studio.

Ha ... I'll probably oder this today but...
fact is I already own dbclassic, 2 copys of db pro, cartshop, 3dws, everything that your offering but dark ai and the darkvoices program.. Any chance of getting a deal on just the two I need.

Also, I am not so keen about a boxed version of the dgstudio, my first copy of dbclassic made it to my home some yrs back when i ordered it. However my 2nd copy of dbpro was never recieved which was supposed to be a cd. TGC was kind enough that they set my up with the online version. But even after they had sent two copies to my home (the second being a replacement of the first) neither copy ever made it too me........ so if i do order this, is it possible to just set me up with online versions rather than a boxed version?

really it would be nice to get a deal on just the two programs that i don't have. buying this i will end up with 2 dbclassics, 3 dbpro's, and 2 of everything else but darkvoices and darkAI

Dark Game Studio is already a bundle, and now you're including all these plugins, and it's only $50 US? Something's not right...

I already have all of that except Dark Lights! This always happens: I buy something, and then later on it gets released for free (or, in this case, far less)! trueSpace, Daggerfall, and now pretty much everything I've ever bought from TGC!

Putting that aside... This is unbelievable! I had thought the original Dark Game Studio was an amazing deal, but this blows that out of the water! It has more stuff than the original Dark Game Studio and is almost half the price!

EDIT: Can you tell I like using ! exclamation points?

Way too nice to pass on, I just returned from a long break to see what was going on, and saw all the tools I wanted for this price! I mean, this is one of the best days I ever had on here, besides that time we had fun with some... Oh nevermind that, amazing non the less!

I'll be awaiting this eagerly.

Could someone tell me what the difference between FPSC Free and FPSC is? (Other than the price, lol!)

FPSC Free is free...

No, FPSC Free can't build standalone .exe
It doesn't contain all the media as FPSC does. And you have to buy an upgrade (2000points) in order to activate the build game feature.

You can find it for free on TGC's site, thats why its called FPSC free

Hope it helped.

P.S. Standard FPSC is worth every ... coin (?)

First to answer "Dream And Death" FPSC question : Free FPSC disables arena multiplayer mode and the creation of stand alone games.

Now back Dark Game Studio Bonanza:

My second copy of Dark Game Studio is well on the way . Yes I paid more for the first copy but even that was a bargin. This is a steal and for less then the cost of the Dark Physics alone. Dark AI, Dark AI, Extends, Darks Lights and another copy of DGS is added gravy. That gives me 2 of the 3 expansions I wanted most (Dark AI #2, and Dark Net being #3) I'm happy!! Thanks Mike, Lee and the other TGC folks.

Wish there would appear an "pick your product bonanza" where you pick the productes you still dont have and for each product you pick you get better prices for the total picked package.

I just bought it . Great marketing, I have to say, I never would have bought all that stuff if it hadn't been for the ridiculous price.

Quote: "Wish there would appear an "pick your product bonanza" where you pick the productes you still dont have and for each product you pick you get better prices for the total picked package."

The price is so good you don't even need to do that . I mean, even if all I wanted was DarkLIGHTS and DarkAI, this thing is less than those would be individually.

Looks like I'm getting two Dark Game Studio boxes. I really can't believe this deal, for less than the price of a game (like an Xbox 360 game or something), I get all this game making material. I wish I had waited a little longer though (bought DGS 2 months ago).

With the pick your product thing, that would be cool, it would probably work best if everything was like 50% off for a while, or maybe, the more money you would spend at normal price, the larger the discount. That would be pretty cool.
