    SOLVED Interact with a single instance

    I have instances that the player can set on fire. If these instances are close to one another, the player can interact with all of them at the same time. What can I do to prevent this from happening. Code(Step): if(distance_to_object(Obj_Player) < 30 && !_SetonFire){ _Close = true;} else{...

    SOLVED Assign object to variable or not to assign to variable?

    Would assigning an object that is used often to a variable of any kind be faster than referencing it's full name? I understand that each time the object is referenced somewhere, it has to be looked up first. If this is faster, would it be good practice to assign the object to a variable? If...

    GMS 2 Any ideas on making characters "remember" save states and resets?

    There's probably a way to do this, but I'm coming from working with RPG Maker, and I don't know much in way of coding. Can you help me think of a simple way to do this? To clarify: I want NPCs to be able to react to when a character "dies" or to events after a "game over" that resets the game...

    SOLVED Anyway I can prevent certain rooms from being compiled when the game is being built?

    I had placeholder rooms which shot up my file size to 96 mb from about 16mb. Reduced them from 4992 x 4992 to 1x1 for 10 rooms. Now I'm back down to a 10-15s build time and 36 mb file size.

    SOLVED Is it safe to work around a bug and make adjustments when a fix is released?

    I'd like to start making some rooms for my game. However, the room inheritance has a bug where you can't paint outside of the parent's room size. Does anyone know if its safe to set the parent's room size larger than what's needed and create the child's room and paint it then once a fix is...

    SOLVED Any simpler way of placing parent variables into children besides the copy & paste into each child?

    What the title says. Not talking about inheritance. That's already being done. I'm overriding the children variables. I'm looking for a simpler way of doing this instead of copy & pasting into each child. While avoiding variable definitions.

    SOLVED What does "Fixed Internally" mean exactly?

    Pretty much what the title says. I'm following a bug and waiting for it to be fixed. It's currently labeled as "Fixed Internally". I'm guessing it means it has been fixed but, not released yet?
