Hello there, I'm new to taking GMS2 seriously for game making and I want to make a Shmup/RPG, but I realized I need a good GUI system for what I have in mind and GML doesn't have gui functions to create buttons, scroll panes, radio buttons, etc., so I want to create a GUI system to do so or use...

Guido is a simple GUI framework that offers...
I want to take any sound file that I add to my project
(Snd_bing for example)
And draw the actually waves of sound you would see for it in audacity
But draw them at the same time its playing
I have no idea how i would go about this. I was think I'd have to do something with getting the pitch...
Hi everyone :D
This is a question/issue that lives with me for quite some time. One problem that makes me shift from GMS2 to other engines is actually the GUI support.. every time I start working on a project I approach it using GMS2 as I think it is a powerful and capable tool both for indie...
I have an object that is drawing a textbox in a 'Draw GUI' event. In this event, I have a script that draws scrolling text inside the textbox. I need to draw an object on top of this box because when I use the draw_sprite function it messes up the animation on the sprite.
The problem is...
I'm trying to do word wrapping by replacing " " character with "\n"

This is a basic universal script utility for drawing a nineslice, which is a textured box that keeps the proportions of its edges when you scale it.
I've done my best to make this script entirely self-contained...
I'm using a fairly older version of Game Maker which does not have the GUI draw event included, or any GUI codes by that means.
My "GUI" in this case is just a drawn healthbar. My problem is that it's scaling down when there's a zoom-out.
Basically, I have two characters in a room...
I am currently working on a new project that requires a bespoke and stylized interface. I would really love to work with someone that has a keen eye for design as-well as functionality.

When i draw a gui, while i draw it at the starting gui size of 768, 1024, the gui will draw correctly, or rather at all, but when i go into full screen, at a size of 2160, 3840 it doesnt draw at all, or not where its supposed to,
gui_width = display_get_gui_width();
I watched Beyond Us Games' tutorial on an inventory system () and tried to implement GUI to it, so that it follows the camera and player. For the most part, it works; however, when I press "I" to open the inventory, it creates the object, but duplicates the sprite, to where when I...
I have a theory I'm wondering if anyone passing by here can confirm or not.
My gui layer is set to the resolution of the player's monitor so as to have the highest resolution for certain graphics. Before I built that function in, I had been setting all my element's locations by static values...
I feel like I must be missing something. I'm drawing on the GUI layer using draw_text(). It's a low res 16bit game so I figured the only way to draw text that isn't fuzzy for lack of a better word would be on the GUI layer. But if you click on the screenshot below, that's not the case. This is a...
Hello everyone :)
I'm fairly new to the GM2 camera system.
Im working on a small prototype of pc board game. The main idea for UI contains fullscreen, scrollable map (done) and player cards shown on top of the map and 'moving' with view when player navigates the map. Here's the problem. For...
I'm doing a vertical shump and I would like to know how to rotate the screen vertically (TATE Mode) so that it is like the Ikaruga of Nintendo Switch.
I tried with image_angle, but the GUI does not rotate and also the black bands on the sides cover what is missing from the...

Hello, I am having trouble scaling my gui.
so I have the automatic drawing of the application surface turned off,
and am drawing the game surface manually and scaling it myself.
for testing purposes i'm letting my game run in its native resolution ( no scaling )
and am centering it in the...
Hi, I'm trying to debug my game, however, when i press F6, click the debug button, or go to Build -> Debug, the game compiles and launches but the Debugger tab doesn't show up anywhere.
The output screen shows that the debugger apparently connected succesfully, it's just nowhere to be seen on...
