     Change Zoom Limits for room editor?

    Hello, just a little bit of feedback I have for the room editor. I am currently working on a large scale space exploration game and I was testing to see just how large you can create a room before things start to fail. The big problem was not that the game couldn't handle the room size, it was...

    Question - Code Image Scale Problem - Possible Bug?

    First, want to say I love the updates within GMS 2. My current project has benefited immensely from the updates, and I'm excited to keep using it. However, I believe I have run into a possible bug for the room editor or the built-in image_scale variables. Within the room editor, I set the...

    Question - IDE How to use the new features in the room editor?

    From the release notes for the lasts update: "Room Editor: Rectangle, line and fill tile tools added (these do not yet do auto-tiling)" http://gms.yoyogames.com/ReleaseNotes.html First of all, this is great! The thing that I disliked the most about GM:S1 was that I needed to work with Tiled or...

     Room Editor

    The new Room Editor is awesome! That said, there's a few things I noticed but I'm not sure if anyone else has run into with questions(?) Background Layers have a handful of nice properties to adjust, but intuitively I didn't see a setting to adjust alpha/opacity. I discovered I had to click on...

     Suggestion: Change Spriteless Object Icon in Room Editor to be Visible Over White

    The new icon in the room editor for spriteless objects is too transparent, blends in especially with any light colors behind it, and is invisible over white. I can't see them half the time. If seeing behind them is absolutely necessary, they could, instead of being transparent, invert the colors...

    Discussion Suggestion: Prevent Losing Room in Room Editor View

    Zooming using the scroll wheel can sometimes cause the room to be 100% out of view if you zoom out, and then zoom in with the cursor outside the room image. It's really difficult to find the room if you do this, and the position is kept even if you close the room. I like being able to see past...

     Initial Thoughts on Studio 2

    Pros: I love the new interface! This might be the best looking IDE ever made IMHO and I can't get enough of it. The new sprite editor is fantastic! I'm in love with the ability to draw while the image is animating and combined with the other new features was one of the two big reasons I...

    Question - IDE Uniform scaling in room editor?

    How do I uniformly scale an instance in the room editor? The standard shift modifier is reserved for marque editing and I have tried other combos but to no avail. Ideally I would like all scaling to be uniform, as non-uniform is rare for me. Also, is there a way to rotate in stepped increments...

    Question - IDE No Isometric Support?

    Am I right that there is no possibility for isometric graphics in Studio 2? In the room editor, when you select a tileset, the grid snap settings are locked to whatever the tile size is, meaning you can't have overlapping tiles. Am I being stupid and just not doinitrite? Or is there some way...

    Easiest way to use the room editor?

    I'm going through the Coding Breakout tutorial, and it was a pain adding all those bricks. Let me explain: I could have just left clicked and added all instances of the bricks one-by-one. I probably should have done it that way. However I was thinking this works like most editors, where you...

    Legacy GM Anyway to hide certain objects in the room editor?

    Right, well, I'm making a top down shooter game, and I want there to look as if there are multiple floors in a single room. And so far it's going great. But the one main problem, is that it's really messy in the room editor. I don't want to hide ALL the objects, I just need to hide the first...

After a long time searching, i've found GMStiled that works really well but there is some lag on my room (i don't know if this is the program fault or mine), also i've found Gmare but apparently it only support...
