    GMS 2.3+ Room size not updating despite changing it?

    Hi! I'm very new to this. I went into properties - Room1, then changed the width and height to 1920x1080. Nothing happened, tried pressing enter a few times but still nothing, my room size is still the same as it defaulted to. Is this an error or have I missed something? It clearly says that...

    How to work a GUI frame/mask around a smaller playable area and moving resources on room

    Android How can I set the screen size?

    Since there are many android phone models, the screen sizes can be different. So what is the best room (view..etc) size? If I do 720 × 1440 it will be 1: 2 but if I do 1080 × 2340 it will be 1: 2.16666666667. For example, if I draw a circle, some screens are not exactly round. Or while all the...

    In what circumstance is 'size' in network_send_* ever not buffer_tell(buffer)?

    As the title asks. Why is it necessary to state the size of the buffer when sending a packet? When would you ever use a different value (and what happens if you do? I assume it crops the buffer but then again?)

    GMS 2 sprite sizes = performance?

    Hello! The question is about the size of sprites, how big can they be done without losing a lot of performance? I tried pixelart and this is definitely not enough to realize my intentions, but I don’t feel like making a game exclusively for powerful PCs. Share your experience, please

    Hey y'all, Just trying to change the viewport size to maintain correct aspect ratio with the camera and leave some space for GUI elements, but the view always stretches to fill the whole screen, no matter the size. That's undesired. I don't want to maintain a fixed aspect ratio for the game...
