What is Visual Programming?

Visual Programming is what makes Fusion 2.5 work. It basis is to allow you to create everything you need by just using the mouse. The software is built out of two main editors:

frame editor

The Frame Editor

Here you visually place and position all of the elements of your game or application (the characters, counters, strings of text etc.) using your mouse.

You set up the properties for each of your objects in this editor by using your mouse to click on check-boxes or selecting choices from drop down menus.


event editor

The Event Editor

A true Visual Programming interface. The program that drives your application is presented to you in the form of a grid (similar to a spreadsheet). You enter the different events (conditions and actions) that make your application work into the grid by choosing options presented to you in pop up menus.

At no time do you need to enter a single line of code. This approach to programming is very simple to understand, but also very fast powerful. You can have the basics of your application entered in just a few clicks.


Quality games

Quality games

The SWF engine used in Fusion 2.5 is highly optimised, allowing you to create very complex games with hundreds of objects moving on the screen, parallax scrolling, rapid shots etc. You can also use as many sounds as you want on 32 different sound channels.

The Fusion 2.5 SWF engine is also very small, only adding 280Kb to your application which is already very compressed by the Adobe Flash file format itself. Because of its small size the Fusion 2.5 SWF engine is also ideal for creating SWF banners.

A community of developers ready to help you

The community based around Clickteam’s products is very active and very friendly. When you run in to any problems with your development, you can always ask your questions in one of our friendly forums. An answer usually comes back within half a day, sometimes even sooner.

And if necessary, you can even send your questions direct to the developers of the program themselves, as they constantly check the forums to help with the more difficult questions.
