I'm not sure why, but in my Draw GUI event I can no longer draw strings. When the debugger reaches the line of code which should draw a string, I just get the phrase
(Here the string is just the word Charm, and oMite is the object which does just about everything in my game)
I watched a few...
Yes yes, string is string. But let me explain.
I want to pass a string from Game Maker to a .dll
The .dll wants a LPCWSTR ( Long Pointer to Constant Wide String ) type string

Now "This is text" is not, what ever that is.

Hi, I am trying to make a "word find game". You know where you get a jumble of random letters and you try to find words hidden inside. (I suppose this is actually more like the game Boggle if you're familiar with that.) As you choose the tiles with the letters, the letters should appear on...
So the problem is that I need to change part of a strings color based on context, (check if it's in brackets and things)...
Not sure if this qualifies as advanced programming but the way I see it the normal user wouldn't worry about this. Anyways...
I was watching A GDC talk(3:40) and the speaker was talking about how they avoid string to string compares, but didn't go into details

I am attempting to implement localization support into my game but I am running into one challenge. My game is a card game and the description of cards can change depending on how many "Fusion Points" a card has. For example I may have a card like this:
Gunshot: Fire 2 bullets.
But if I gain 1...
I'm trying to make a minecraft-like seed system where you can type some kind of text string and it will be converted to real and afterwards the seed will be set. However, seems I'm doing something wrong with the converter. I didn't follow any tutorials so my code might be completely stupid, I'm...
Is there a way to spell check "strings" that I've written dialogs with?
I know (or at least haven't seen it) that GameMaker Studio 2 IDE doesn't have a grammar spell check, but is there away or some kind of program, where I can check for grammer spelling in the code that I've typed?
I have a...
Hi! As the title says I want to figure out if a global variable (global.cats) exists without having to put every global in the entire game into a ds_map and checking against it.
for more context.
im currently doing it like this

I want to split an equation into 3 sections. The first number, the second number and the operator itself.
Input (string_print) = print 10+15
num1 = 10
num2 = 15
op = "+"
eq = string_copy(string_print, 7, string_length(string_print)-6)
This is the code I use for getting everything...
I want to include em dashes in my strings, and not have them return as the default "▯." For example: str = "The quick brown fox — who was very quick indeed — jumped over the lazy dog.";

I am drawing text into a sprite box of a fixed size, 1200 pixels wide and enough room for 2 lines of text.

I plan localizing my game and I have two ideas rolling around in my mind on how to load text. Either load the strings from an .ini file into a ds_grid in a centralized way and have the objects access the strings form that grid or load strings in each object when a room starts (or object spawned)...
Basically what I want to do is
Have an object call a script (scr_decry)
The script holds a variable (decry_phrase) and a list of strings such as "apple", "password","pinepplesarebad"
Then the script will make (decry_phrase) = a random string from the list
Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
Ive been reading the online manual , and the load_csv function does not state if your csv file needs to have values that are treated as strings to be enclosed in " " , double quotation marks so that load_csv converts it to a string variable.
Does any one know ?
In my game, I want to be able to write strings via keyboard input in-game. I tried to do this.
In the object that is the textbox, I have 3 events:

Hello GameMaker Community.
I'm having an issue with creating global variables for sharing information between the players, game objects, and ini reading/writing. Part of the problem is that my game has a max of twenty (20) save slots, each slot has roughly 5,200 individual datapoints (for...
