Could you provide some more details? what went wrong? note that you have to import your world first, and not open it normally.

Also, notice that in Mama you don't have to save the world before exporting to a movie (which is something I never understood why required in Alice )

When I try to convert the original Alice world to mama, it prompt a error message "unable to load the world".

Btw, Mama seems abundant in functionality, but it's slower compare to Alice 2.2.

Not helpful. Next time, mention WHAT problems you've been having. Personally, I haven't had many problems with Mama, so I'm wondering if there are differences by machine with Mama, like with Alice.

I could, and I did. As I wrote you, your problems have nothing to do with Mama or with Alice, or with the kind of hardware you use. Simply remove all the bullet events from the events area and move them into methods, and activate the isCloseTo check only after and while bullets are shot.

Can you post the world somewhere so I can check that?
And to my experience the current version of Mama, 1.5.2, is actually faster than Alice.

Say you have a bullet b that in some part of the game is shot into a target t, and a shooting event calling method During_Shoot (that's a method I saw in your world)

method: During_Shoot
<do Ammo calc and fire stuff>
b.is_flying=true
b.moveToPosition(...)
...
# event testing for hit
event: while b.is_flying and b.isCloseTo(1 meter, t)
<do the hit effect>
<set b.is_flying to false>
Checking first for the boolean value b.is_flying is not expensive, and while it is false the second condition is not checked (short-circuit).
