I didn't get the bug fixed (but figured a workaround), but was going to keep the updates...until I noticed my levels weren't drawing right anymore.

    So, I'm trying to refactor some of my objects, and this includes renaming and moving around parents and such. One thing I haven't been able to find is a way to search for object instances that have been laid out in the room editor. I know how to do CTRL-Shift-F to find stuff in all of the...

    Question - IDE [SOLVED but still an issue] GMS2 Blue-Screened my PC and is using 10 GB of RAM

    EDIT: My issue has been resolved, technically. However, there is almost definitely some form of memory leak, a huge one, involving tiles. While I'm placing tiles, RAM increases by about 20 MB per second. Every time I save the project after editing tiles, RAM increases by 200-300 MB. Every single...

    GMS 2 [SOLVED] Variables tab missing from debug

    Must have forgotten to tighten the nut on the other side of my keyboard because I closed the variables tab in my debugger without thinking. Now I cannot get it back. I did layout>reset layout but that did not fix it. Any ideas?

    Question - IDE Drawing Individual Layers of a Sprite

    Hi guys. So I've got a question related to drawing the layers within a sprite. I mean the layers like the ones inside the sprite editor, not the 'Sprite Layers' which you can create in the room editor through code. The reason I ask is because I am currently making a game where I assemble the...

    Is there any better naming of resources?

    Hi, I'm trying to name scripts somehow so I can easily assign them to objects as functions (like in other OOP languages). Is there any better option for naming them? I find it quite nonsense that in GMS 2 resources must have unique names regardless of folders, type of resource or something like...

    Question - IDE Room Editor - Inheritance issues

    So recently I wanted to try out room inheritance to make my project more manageable. I am new to using Game Maker 2 after prying myself away from Game Maker Studio 1.4 but here I am. However, I have found room inheritance to be quite infuriating and it has led me to ask a number of questions...

    Question - IDE Steam being down leads to GMS2 not being available??

    Hello everyone. I purchased and installed GMS2 Mobile from Steam, and am now looking for an 'offline' version. I had an issue the other day where (i think) that Steam crashed and because Steam wouldn't load, GMS2 would not load. I thought this would be resolved by downloading a second copy...

    Discussion IDE crashes silently after a variable amount of time

    Since at least two weeks ago I'm having random crashes in GMS2 with no error messages. These occur even if I'm not interacting with the program (it can crash on its own in the background). The behaviour is as if a gremlin inside the computer randomly the process at any random time. I have it...

    Bug, variable exists but these lines don't read it.

    So these variables aren't being recognized by the IDE for some reason, even though I am using them two lines afterward. I tried restarting the IDE and reloading the project but that didn't fix it unfortunately. My guess is that this is a bug related to the new warning system but i'm not sure.

     Bracket pair colorizer.

    Hello, I recently found this and I thought it would be a great addition by just allowing the option to exist. Currently, you can select the color for each element in your text editor, but this means different color for what would be the same elements.
