    Discussion GMS does gamma all wrong

    Read the source for in depth discussion as to the details and what it should be doing. (http://blog.johnnovak.net/2016/09/21/what-every-coder-should-know-about-gamma/) The short of it is GMS functions internally treating all sprites as sRGB data - which is well and fine until we start trying...

    Question - Code Audio emitter not working properly

    Hello there! I'm having a really weird issue with audio emitters. I have this pretty standard system set up in my game: Emitter's create event: emitter = audio_emitter_create(); audio_emitter_gain(emitter, 1); audio_emitter_position(emitter, x, y, 0); audio_emitter_falloff(emitter, 100, 300...

    Question - IDE From GMS 1 to GMS 2 - Various annoyances

    After years of working with GMS 1, I just started using GMS 2 (thanks to a certain new export module!) While I like it overall, there are quite a few things that annoy me. Shortcuts : - I used F12 a lot in GMS 1.4. When the cursor is on a function name, this opened it immediately in a new...

    Question - IDE Any way to show old-style windows?

    I've been working with GMS2's giant scrolling window of windows for a while now, and I guess I don't see the appeal of it. I never know where my windows are, so I am always scrolling around blindly looking for them, or else I have to press cmd-T and just type what I want, which defeats the...

    Question - IDE Splash screen not removable in IDE? Wasn't the case when using trial version.

    Hi there! I've been trying Game Maker 2 for the last couple of days and am thoroughly enjoying it. Just a moment ago, I upgraded to the Creator license. However, when I was using the trial version, I would not have a splash screen appear in the IDE when running my game. Now this suddenly does...

    Question - IDE Anyone else notice the IDE 2.1.4.288 in GMS2 getting slower to open?

    I am running on a decently equipped Mac but I have noticed that the IDE is taking a lot longer to load. I haven't updated to the latest because of fear of it breaking my game. Any thoughts on this?

    Question - IDE Code Editor Status Bar Color

    Okay, I made the jump from GMS 1.4 to GMS2, and for the most part am very glad that I did. My existing project even converted seamlessly without any speedbumps. One problem I am facing though is with the status bar color (specially for routines containing errors), it is a Maroon background with...

    How do YOU use layouts in GMS2?

    In the GMS2 IDE, you can save your workspace layout (click "Layouts" on the menu bar, between Marketplace and Help). I feel like I should be using them for something, or at least have an idea of why they might be useful. Anyone include them as part of their workflow?

    Question - IDE GameMaker Studio 2 Won't Start

    Coming back from a long break, I'm trying to open GMS2, and it simply won't do anything. No process shows up in Task Manager, except a background process for the exe does pop up for less than a second before disappearing. I've tried the following: Install newest version (which includes...

    Hi I'm on a laptop. Things are crammed, but its ok. I am often in and out of the code sections of my objects. If I double click on an object in my resource tree, it always takes me to the events section, then I have to shift scroll to the code section. Is there anything in preferences that...

    Discussion AssetCompiler : One or more errors occurred -- all the time!

    I have to try four or five times to run my game before it will actually launch. Anyone else repeatedly get this stupid error dialog box? I don't have any compile errors in my game. I just have to keep mashing the triangle button until eventually it will run. Sometimes cleaning helps...

    Question - IDE New version GMS2 does not compile a project

    Hi all! After the last update, my runtime (v2.1.4.218) does not want to compile projects for all platforms. Output for Windows: Nothing else happens, and the compilation time continues. Before this update everything worked well. If you now switch to the old runtime, then an error will...

    Question - IDE GML doesn't recognize the colours set in 'Variable Definitions'

    Seemingly, the colours you pick in an object's Variable Definitions in the IDE (also called Object Variables - very confusing), are not actually valid colours in GML. The colour picker creates a HEX-colour in the format #RRGGBBAA, while GML expects either a color made through make_color() or...

    Question - IDE GMS2 Object Events opening in their own respective tabs?

    Hello, After fiddling with the preferences in GMS2, I couldn't get around to achieving what I wanted exactly. I do not even see any changes when I set preferences for the IDE in GMS2. What I wanted to ask, is if it is possible for an event of an object to be opened in a tab that is intended...
