    Windows Code sometimes works, sometimes doesn't

    Has anyone else encountered issues with code sometimes working and sometimes not? Personally I have seen it with instance_place_list and with for loops. I think it only happens in instant events (Create, Destroy etc) not in step/draw. Thinking more about it, i think it is about variables...

    Jump not working right and run speed gets progressively faster

    The controls respond but the output is not right. You can see that it tries to jump but never leaves the platform. When I run, the speed does not cap, so it gets increasingly faster. Any ways to go about this? Create Event /// @description Init Vars // Global array to store gamepad info in...
