    I'm trying to fix a stubborn error in my game. When encountered, it generates a fatal error (it says it's trying to access an instance that doesn't exist, even though the debugger clearly shows an instance with that index). Here's my current workflow: Run in Debugger Wait 25 seconds for the...

    Discussion Mobile developers should be able to compile to YYC for testing

    YYC and the VM have different behaviors. This is a problem. YYG's position on this problem has fluctuated. I think originally they acknowledged the different behaviors, then for a period they denied that there was any difference, and now recently they've gone back to acknowledging the...

    Question - Code [Resolved!] GMS2 : "Cannot find" object that is demonstrably present; strange debugging

    Edit : This issue has been resolved. As per usual, it seems it was human error and not something that required a bug report. However it may have been the most recent update that caused GMS2 to detect the error, where it had existed previously without halting the game? I may be overlooking...
