    I posted an inquiry here yesterday because I thought my error was a result of something I was doing wrong in my programming, but with more investigation, I have found that GM is improperly displaying games in fullscreen mode, leading to this: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AjRuknkctW_qgb5PWJH0DSEWfdq94g...

    GMS 2 [Solved] Question about fullscreen in GMS2

    I've been messing with GMS2 for a while now and I noticed something was a little off compared to when I used gms1. When I entered fullscreen in GMS1 using my display coding it would display the image in the center of the screen then draw black bars around the window where necessary. In GMS2...

    Shaders Shaders in Fullscreen, shader effect is at incorrect position

    Please test my game too! :(

    AHEM: I might just drop the idea of multiplayer and even the AI. Perhaps I'm going to abandon the whole project because of the lack of interest. :/ What's the point of working very hard on a game if noone even bothers to play with it? MegaSports is a 2D sports game. This includes Football and...

    HTML5 Fullscreen Button

    Does anyone know how I would go about programming a fullscreen button for my html game much like a YouTube or Vimeo video would have? I found javascript for it and I thought I could apply it as an extension, but that doesn't seem to work. It has to be possible, because somewhere in the code...
