Programs

Adobe Flash CS3 - Newest version of Flash and the first to be published by Adobe. This is the ONLY program that Armor Games supports for games on the website, unless you have another way to create an .swf file.
Cost: $699 (30-Day Free Trial Available roduct=flash">HERE)

Game Maker 7 - An extremely popular program that's used by many indy developers to create games. It's extremely easy to use, and is great for those of you starting out.
Cost: Free!

This topic is a work in progress and will be edited to include more programs at a later date. If you want to see a program added, or need help with game development, please leave me a comment of my userpage. Thank you.

If SWF format is all that matters would GameMaker:Studio work?

A friend of mine want's to start making games, and I've been keeping an eye out for anything he might be able to use to make a flash game. So far all the stuff I've seen has been either incredibly hard and complicated, or ridiculously condescending and template-based.
Does anyone one know of a happy middle ground? If there's a happy middle ground? I know there isn't much for mac out there but surely someone must of made something...

No, and I really don't recommend making games with GameMaker whatsoever. It's an Ok tool for learning, but it isn't of good quality.

Adobe Flash CS3 is kind of outdated, but it does virtually the same stuff. It most certainly isn't for beginners; have at it after trying 3-4 programs that have been deemed "easier" It also helps to have a little background in flash, because that's the language your can code in. Adobe Flash has an easier, but less flexible, drag-and-drop system, but I don't know if CS3 caries it. It also comes with a hefty price tag.
