    GMS 2.3+ Real fps drops greatly when creating new path

    I have a monster that follows you, using mp_potential_path_object to get to you without walking through walls. As the player can move, the monster deletes the previous path and creates a new one every 3 seconds (room_speed * 3). According to the debugger, this causes a drop in real fps whenever...

I imported it from GMS1 to 2 after working on it there for a bit, and I'm finally publishing it! Selling for 2.99 USD on...

    GMS 2 Increasing the FPS with room speed but keeping the in-game speed

    Hello everyone. I'm in the middle of a conundrum. I've been working on this game for 5 years now, soon to be 6 years and for some reason when starting the development I decided that the room speed 40 was a good pick for the game. I later learned that this isn't a very optimal room speed. In...
