I am curious about the version of Game Maker that people use now. I am thinking that most people here on ZFGC who use Game Maker are between Game Maker 8 and Game Maker Studio but I am not sure.

I use the same, except I bought it when it was more pricey. $25 is a really sweet deal.

GM:S was actually free for a limited time.  I grabbed it then a week later, I received an email offer to upgrade to professional for $25.  Couldnt pass it up.

I took that offer and have Professional Studio as well, but I actually work in GM 8.1 (the paid edition).  Since I worked in GM 7 for a long while, and GM 8 was basically much of the same with many upgrades and such, it felt right at home.  When I opened Studio, it was almost like looking at a foreign program, so I didn't feel like relearning the interface to make my games, when I can probably get all I need for my projects out of the one I'm accustomed to in GM 8.1.

When Game Maker Studio had first come out, it seemed like it had a lot of limitations compared to the free version of Game Maker 8.1, but over a few months to a year it seems like they have eased up on that by making it a lot less to upgrade or offering the low-cost version for free. To be honest, I only found out recently that you can change the look and layout of Game Maker Studio to look like Game Maker 8.1 (the windows aren't black but old-style light gray instead).

But yeah, I am kind of where you are Koh. I have some stuff done in Game Maker 8.1 which I just found easier to keep and work on in Game Maker 8.1 - but I am slowly starting to transition to Game Maker Studio.

I am using GM Studio Master Collection...  It is the most expensive piece of software I have ever purchased, but I expect it will pay itself off before too long.  GM studio is leaps and bounds better than its predecessors.  My main project started out on GM 8.1 and I had to update it to run in Studio, but I am very glad that I did.

For the sake of history...  I started back in the GM 6 days but I used GM 5...  Never used 6 and upgraded to 7 when it came out, then followed the progression clear to studio.
