    GMS 2.3+ GMS 2.3 docs load slowly, some pages missing entirely

    Has anyone else had issues with the new documentation since version 2.3? I find myself using the old docs2 site for the most part because it loads faster and seems more complete. Like, I just tried to look up window_has_focus() in the new docs and it comes up with an error that says "127.0.0.1...

    GMS 2 What's in_collision_tree?

    So I was programming, and I noticed this built-in variable in_collision_tree. It isn't in the documentation, so does anyone have any idea what it is, what it does, and how to use it?

    YoYo, please allow us to contribute to the documentation.

    The documentation is often lacking small details. It would be nice if each page had a publicly visible ticket system where approved users could submit issues for things to be fixed or added.

    GMS 2 Is the array reference accessor supposed to be used outside of scripts?

    For the longest time, I believed that the array reference accessor "@" would only work inside of scripts and would be useless outside of them. After reading around and doing some personal testing, it seems however that the behaviour described for scripts - arrays are passed as references in the...

    Question - Code [SOLVED] Reliable UDP

    When reading the documentation on network_set_config, we came across the "reliable UDP protocol" that GameMaker apparently supports. This protocol claims to guarantee that packets find their destination, without extra code on your end. For complicated reasons, our project cannot use TCP, so this...

    On the timeline_moment_add_script documentation page, the example is missing a ")" on the fifth line. Could someone please move this to the appropriate section? Thank you.

     Suggestion: Add @requires as a JSDoc parameter.

    At present, I stick @requires into scripts that I intend to share whenever one depends on another in a set. It doesn't explicitly hurt anything, but it's also not officially supported in JSDoc Script Comments. If YYG would consider it, there's some benefits: In the short-term, being able to...

    Idea I have a great game idea! But I don't know how to pitch it...

    Hi all, I have a game idea that I've been thinking about for some time now, and am just now starting to document it.

    Discussion Feature Request: GMS2 Documentation App

    With GMS1.x, one of my favorite pass times to do on my phone was peruse the documentation via the browser. However, even better would have been an app for easier navigation and reading. Now that GMS2 is out, and it seems the documentation is tied to the IDE (unless someone can show me the...
