    Question - IDE Import from strip and removing background?

    Hello! In GMS 1.x we can import an animated sprite from a strip, and also remove the background color at the same time, like this: Is this option still available in GMS 2? If yes, where is it? Otherwise, adding that feature back would be very useful and handy, as it was on 1.x. Thanks. Dani

    Question - IDE Image Editor Mirror Brush Tool

    A twofold question, both folds about Mirror Brush Tool. 1. I click it & it gets unclicked instantly, I then click on the canvas, nothing seems to happen (same with Flip Brush Tool). What am I doing wrong? 2. From manual on Mirror Brush Tool: So that means it just mirrors the layer once? It...

     GUI problems and incoherences, a few suggestions for IDE

     IDE Feature suggestions for resource handling & code editor

    Introduction: The new IDE is great and should fit multi-monitor work environments well (have only gotten around to trying on my laptop, so far). The "Search and replace" tool, Resource-tree filter and new Code editor are all welcomed additions. However, it still seems to be the case, when...

    Question - IDE Will we ever get a Linux IDE for GMS?

    I have seen no announcement from YYG about a Linux IDE for GMS2. With all the talk of GMS2 being a full rewrite in portable C++, which would allow you to compile the IDE for other platforms, it has gotten my hopes up, especially since we have had Linux as a build target for some time now. I...

    Font size within GMS?

    Is there a way to increase the font size in GameMaker Studio? I don't mean of your game, I mean the actual IDE itself? This would include the text in the tutorial windows. I can read it but my eyesight isn't too great and I generally have to get close to the monitor and/or squint a bit.

    GMS quit on Win10

    Hi all, I started using GMS yesterday, downloaded from Steam. But it always quit itself after 5/10 minutes' using, without warning or crash. I am using win10 pro 64bit. Also when I open the tutorial in the IDE, it got not responding and crash. Is there any fix on this? Thanks, Sty

    Included files are extremely slow and irritating to work with

    My current project requires loads of included files, but apparently GMS will not update any modification done outside the IDE, nor will it properly import a folder with a whole folder structure in it. This makes it extremely irritating to work with included files. You have to manually import...
