     13:6 Aspect Ratio (iPhoneX) responsive design

    Hey gang, I'm hoping someone out there has a suggestion on how to better manage the black bars at the top and bottom (of a portrait game) for iPhoneX (and other 19.5:9 or 13:6 aspect ratio devices). What I've done to "patch" our existing games is to display something on the top and bottom of...

    GML Centering a room in a view larger than the room? [SOLVED]

    Yes I'm aware that it's not the best thing to have a view larger than a room, I've given my game a dynamic aspect ratio horizontally as means of better displaying the art created for it without distortion. It works properly so long as the room's width is equal to or greater than the width of...

    Legacy GM [SOLVED] Resolution Issues

    I've been working with a partner recently on a game and wanted to add resolution changing, but I think I made the mistake of making the game with the native resolution of 1920x1080.
