    Alarm - game_get_speed

    I've been watching tutorials issued by my college and have noticed that when using game_get_speed(gamespeed_fps); it does not work as gamemaker 1.4 doesn't recognise "game_get_speed." Are there any alternatives? I've tried room_speed but that also shows an error.

    Legacy GM Can't download GMS 1.4 anymore?

    Hello. For some reason, I can't download GMS 1.4 anymore. I have a GMS 2 license, and I was able to download 1.4 previously, but I'm suddenly unable to find any download button or link. Is it because I'm trying to download it on a Mac?

    Legacy GM Jump from above?

    How do I program it like that -> if the player jumps from above onto an object -> it deletes itself (the object)? And how can I program it like that: if the player jumps from left or right, the player himself deletes himself? (I know and already have the jump code, I just need the other thingies)
