    GMS 1.4. executables suddenly all run much slower

    I tested earlier this week, and all was fine, at least so it seemed. Tonight as i tested my projects, they were all running slower than usual. Much slower in fact. Can it be that a recent Windows Update caused this? I cant think of anything else that might have directly caused an issue such as...

    GMS 2 Increasing the FPS with room speed but keeping the in-game speed

    Hello everyone. I'm in the middle of a conundrum. I've been working on this game for 5 years now, soon to be 6 years and for some reason when starting the development I decided that the room speed 40 was a good pick for the game. I later learned that this isn't a very optimal room speed. In...

    Hello! So I've been working on a game for about 5 years in Game maker Studio 1.4 (I use Game Maker Studio 2 as well). The game has never had any lag or frame-drops. The overall performance for the game have always been working great. Until this morning. Apparently windows decided to update...

    (SOLVED) Lag issue, but solved ONLY when ALT+ENTER?

    Hi everyone, for a long time I have been fighting lag in my game. The lag did do something good however; I learned to optimize so many things, that the lag was reduced by a ton. I can basically have like 2000 instances running a small (but clever) amount of code and the lag doesn't really...

    Design Questions about Delta time, lag with incremental/click based game.

    1. Is Delta timing good for a incremental/click based game? 2. If I have variables doing calculations per step, and the game lags, will it cause issues for me? Ex: if I had two variables relying to be in sync, and become out of sink due to lag. Or is that lag just voided steps and the...

    (SOLVED) Bizarre lag problem: Surface problem, Camera problem, or something else?

    Hi everyone. For the past year I've been coding my own game. It's becoming quite large, at least for a beginner like me. However I've always ran across a problem: lag. At first I thought it was the number of objects and the code in them. I learned how to optimize, I learned how to make sure...

    Debugger: call count and Ms in profiling

    Hi everyone. Today i've been trying to tackle an issue I have with my project: lag. At first I thought it was my surfaces, which in some way: yes, absolutely. For some reason when I minimize the game, a lag spike appears, and endures after i maximize. I'm still trying to resolve that. However...

    Hi everyone. I've been using shaders and surfaces now for a while to come up with all sorts of cool effects. Weather, lighting, fog, day/night cycles,.... However I've run across something that I'm sure a lot of people have already encountered: Lag, specifically lag after I minimize the game...

    (SOLVED) Serious lag when having many tree objects

    Hi everyone! For a while now, I've had serious lag issues, to the point where the game becomes unplayable. This only happens when I have a lot of tree objects in my game. Trees have a chance to spawn a new one each day in my game. They also grow each day. In order for a tree to be placed, it...

    GML Rhythm-Based Game, Lag

    Hi! I am making a rhythm-based game, and essentially, if the game lags the music does not, so it becomes out of sync with the game and things do not happen on-beat. How do I fix this? Thank you!

    Windows Consistent extreme lag on startup of any project - then running fine?

    I've been dealing with this problem on my desktop for a fair while now with any of my projects made in GMS2. Literally every single time I run a project the first second or so is fine and then there is extreme lag almost to the point of freezing, then a few seconds later the game runs fine? It's...

    Gamemaker resource tree is lagging [1.499]

    Hey all My game is running fine once it starts, zero lag, everything runs as it should. All good there. The problem is that gamemaker itself is lagging, in the resource tree specifically. If I need to choose a new object to place in a room from the drop down menu, it takes MULTIPLE clicks to...
