    Mac OSX Hand Drawn Sprite events ignored

    Hello All, I noticed this issue with hand drawn sprites using GMS2 that events are ignored. What am I missing? If I import an image to use as a sprite, I can see all events received as expected. GMS2 > IDE: v2.3.0.529 Runtime v2.3.0.401 -------------------------- Model Name: MacBook...

    GMS 2.3+ Events

    So, I haven't got any issues as such. And yes I have read the manual. I still don't fully understand 'events' beyond the execution order and types of functions that can be run within them. I use: # Create for initializing variables # Step for logic code # Draw for drawing (Because it won't run...

    Leaving Persistent Room: Do Destroy and Room End Events Trigger?

    When the player leaves a persistent room for another (pause menu in my case) does the room end event trigger, or the instance destroy event trigger? These events currently destroy ds_grids in some of my objects, and that would break the room if I return to it (by unpausing)?

    Legacy GM How to make changes in another room

    Hello, everyone. I'm trying to change things by changing between rooms. Basically, I have my "obj_door" that simply does "room_goto()", but I need this to move objects or trigger events. What I have thought is to add "with (obj_player)" after changing the room, but I realised that it doesn't...

    GMS 2 [SOLVED] GML Alarm events (I think)

    So I'm VERY new to GM and coding in general (unless you count a strange enjoyment in making excel spreadsheets ;)) I downloaded the trial to play with the DnD but quickly figured out that it was going to be less complicated in the long run to learn the code. Forgive me if I give a little too...

    In what order are the events(draw,step,etc) called?

    I want to run a script before the draw event is called and another one after the draw event. Where should i put these scripts? It would be very helpful if someone could give me the order of all the events.

    How to make objects wait in line and perform events only after the one before?

    So basically, my strategy game has quite a bunch of announcements appearing to the player in the middle of gameplay, be it 'you captured this city' or 'this guy has died here or there'.

     Thoughts on new variable definitions, Object linked Scripts?

    Just a friendly suggestion, I was thinking about how events/scripts work in gamemaker, and I thought, what if we could make "Scripts" act like different object events, but also make object events act like scripts. For example, when creating a "draw event" for an object, rather than creating...

    GMS 2 Just curious.. why no Tab key event?

    As the title says, this is not a question, just a curiosity. I know that I can use keyboard_check_pressed (vk_tab) to accomplish something on a tab key press. But I'm just wondering about the lack of an event for the tab key, since it seems that almost every other key (modifier keys, home, end...

    Are there functions in GMS2 to react on OS specific events? For example: how can I react in GMS2 on an Android onLongClick Event? Or can this only be done with extensions and how would it work?
