    Legacy GM Leg spikes when connecting/disconnecting Xbox One wireless controller with GMS 1.4.9999

    Hey all, I've been running into a similar problem as what happened here. Every time I turn my bluetooth Xbox One controller on or off, I'm getting massive lag spikes in the debugger from RoomSpeedSync.

    GMS 2.3+ Alterante to keyboard_check_released for gamepad_axis_value?

    I'm posting this here because I've scoured threads on this board and Reddit, as well as the manual, and I can't seem to work things out.

    Gamepad on Raspberry Pi won't register A and B buttons.

    I'm trying to get one of the generic USB gamepads (Buffalo, Kiwitata, etc) to work on the Raspberry Pi. The DPad works if you treat it as an analog stick and the X and Y buttons register along with the shoulder buttons. The problem is the A and B buttons don't register at all. They work fine...

    Linux Raspberry Gamepad (detecting too many)

    Hi! I'm doing some test-compilation on a Raspberry Pi 4 and Gamemaker. Everything works fine except that when I run my game it detects all devices that are attached through USB on the Pi as gamepads. I am adding a player object for every "gamepad detected" in Async-System as described here...

    Mac OSX Can someone point me to the right direction for using motion controls from a gamepad controller in Game Maker?

    I am currently trying to prototype a game that uses motion controls from a game pad. I have seen and read through what the manual said on motion controls, but they seem to be limited to smart phones. Is game maker able to use motion controls of a game controller? Do I need to purchase some kind...

    How do I get rid of the gamepad stats in the top corner?

    I have tried the code in a new project and it doesn't show up. No matter how I alter the code in the current project it just doesn't go away. Is there a setting or something to turn this off?

    I have a fully working vertical menu that gets input from the keyboard and the gamepad D-Pad, but when I try to add the joystick/analog the choice just move all at once in one direction. How can I make it to where it just goes down one, like the arrow keys and the D-Pad. Here is the current...
