    Game Resolution vs. Game Fairness

    I am making a platformer. Should I allow any resolution? I am designing around 16:9 aspect ratio but I feel having a super wide ratio would have an advantage? Or does it matter?

So, mistakenly, I made all my views, view_in_room, and ports the exact same as my screen resolution. Later, I got a new monitor that is 1920 x 1080. I noticed that when...

    Recently I've realized that when testing my game on screens with different aspect ratios, words (or whatever is being drawn on Draw GUI layer) tend to go off screen. Now I've been experimenting with "display_get_gui_width" and "display_get_gui_height", which keeps the text within the window but...
