    Changing Sprites

    I'm making a simple gravity-shifting 'auto-scroll' platformer (view follows a camera object not a player, player dies if out of view). When I shift gravity so that I am walkng on the ceiling, the standing sprite of the player is inverted (up-side down) - but, the walking sprite remains the...

    [SOLVED] Weird sprites and tiles stuttering / jiggling

    [SOLVED] THANKS GUYS!! I AM WRITING IN CAPS, BECAUSE I AM SO EXCITED! The problem really was my wrong zooming in.. To make it more clear : my base resolution of game is 640x360 . When zoomed, it was 448x252.. Somehow I thought that if I keep the same aspect ratio, nothing bad could happen. Oh...

    Question - IDE What's the largest spritesheet you've successfully converted to frames?

    A couple of weeks ago, near the start of the public beta, I successfully converted a sheet that contained over 200 individual sprites into frames. Today, I attempted to convert one which contains 617 frames (You may think I'm crazy, that's fine :p), and the editor locks up. But I'm curious if...

    Objects vs Tilesets for terrain sprites?

    I have been using terrain sprites in objects and placing them in my rooms. That can be a lot of objects when I'm done. However, I read that using objects like this is a bad thing to do in comparison to using tilesets. Is this true, and if it is, how bad is the overhead? I'm using GM2 now...

    Windows Bug when importing a .gif Sprite

    So I've been importing a lot of sprites to Game Maker Studio 2 and I've noticed that sometimes when you try to import a certain .gif it will not import anything at all. I went and did a test on Game Maker Studio 1.4 and imported the same sprite and it had no problems at all. Let me know if...

    distance_to_object - Help Me Understand *SOLVED*

    Hello, I have written a script for my npc's to make them always face the player by using the built in function "point_direction".

    Question - IDE Long term feature - Mapping a unit of measure to px

    I looked around and didn't see this as a topic anywhere so hopefully it is okay to post it here: Consider a top-down view situation where real world components are intended to be scaled. The size of a vehicle versus the size of the house where the car is pulling up to park. It can be difficult...

    Can anyone see why my sprites aren't working correctly?

    I have never had any issues when setting sprites before but this time around I just can't get them to show when I want them. The issue is when I move, the player object never switches to the walk cycle and even though I have an if statement to check if i'm moving horizontally or not moving on...

    Multiple Animations in one sprite

    Hi, so I have an object that when he moves left and right a walking animation plays and when the sprite flips when he turns around. I have all the sprites for the animation just together in the sprite itself, so I was wondering, if I want something to have multiple animations, how do I go about...

    Graphics Generals And Conquest Sprites

    So I finally decided I would give animated sprites a chance in Gimp2. I don't know how to quite implement what I visualize in my mind, so they are likely awkward, but I think would be fun for a hack and slash. I am using a wireframe to plot out the movements, then layering on mass. I want to...

    Changing A Sprite With Left Click

    You'll have to excuse me if I'm just being silly, but I'm new to GameMaker and I can't figure this coding out. So far I have this: switch (device_mouse_check_button(mouse, lmb) + sp_Pod = sprite_replace(sp_Pod, sp_Open_Pod, 1, true, false, x, y)) { case (device_mouse_check_button(0, mb_left) +...

    iOS different images based on device resolution?

    Hi all! I'm making a game that will be available for iOS and Android but I'm not sure how to deal with textures for the different device resolutions. The game will not have pixelated graphics so I need a solution that will scale correctly. In the past, using other engines, I had different...

    [SOLVED]sprite_index not actually changing sprite

    So, my problem is this: I want to approach a tree, and I want the code to determine whether the tree is to the left or to the right, and with that, display the right chopping animation(left or right).
