    Just something that's been on my mind. In my fighting game project, the player has the ability to save a replay of the match they played. I take the necessary information (mostly player inputs I have saved in DS_Lists which I save as strings), put it into a buffer, and save the buffer. Loading...

    Allowing users to load audio files into the game?

    Heya. I'd like the user to be able to load sprites and audio files into the game. The sprite part is easily handled by sprite_add(), however loading audio into the game seems vastly more complex, and from what I have seen, only possible in a very limited fashion. It appears that the only way...

    Networking timing difference

    Hello, I am working on a multiplayer game in GameMaker. The concept is close to a fighting game and so it's very important both players see the same thing happening at the exact same time. It takes a while for a buffer to be sent to the other player though. A lot of fighting games fix this by...

    I've used ini files before for saving / loading but I was wondering why and when you'd use buffers/json. Why would you use one over the others? Thanks!

    GMS 2 Need File Size to Determine Buffer Size?

    The player in my game has to explore a rather large world that can't reasonably fit into memory. Instead, they simply load parts of the world from files as they approach and unload as they walk away. This was working fine at first, but as I added more complexity in how designers can build these...
