Should I want to make an advanced FPS, which should I use:

FPSc or DBPro?

Have you ever programmed before?

DBPro will allow you more scope to make the game exactly as you want, and will allow you more control.

FPSC will make it easy and quick to do it and is great for non-programmers, but you get less flexibility.

So it's true that FPSC has a lot of flexibility, but other programs have more?

'Cause that's what I've heard.

FPSC is never going to offer as much flexibility as a fully-fledged programming language like DBPro.

No, I didn't say that! I said that, although it's not as flexible as DBPro, it is still very flexible. And I said that I'd heard that somewhere else on the forum.

However if this is your first time working on a FPS, I think you would get a better feel with FPSCreator first. That's the direction I am heading. The documentation on DBPro is not as good as it should be. It will be, but while I am waiting, I really want to get started with FPSCreator. I feel at the moment that I would be more effective on that then DBPro. Wait until FPSCreator EA is released. Then you will know if that would work better for you first so it can move you onto DBPro later.
