    Android / Amazon Fire Android SDK path cannot be found

    Suddenly Game Maker stopped finding the SDK folder in the determined directory. I am pretty sure the path is set correctly. I have changed nothing but it started to do this. I changed the location of SDK folder but still didn't work. I hope anyone faced this issue and has a solution.

    I was recently looking at a safe way to be able to save the file without a regular user being able to modify the gamedata. So I made a system that works as follows to save the game safely: 1 - Save variables in a "ds_map" 2 - Save ds_map as JSON 3 - Save the JSON string to a buffer with byte...

Moving it over to my 60hz monitor smooths the framerate back to normal. I've tried searching this separately, and the consensus I read was it locks to 50 fps...
