    GMS 2.3+ [SOLVED] Detect Terrain Beneath Player

    Hey all! I'm working on a 2D platforming infinite runner and there's a feature in it where after jumping, the player must press the space bar with perfect timing before hitting the ground.

    GML Deltatime Metronome not accurate/constant

    I tried making a metronome in Gamemaker which ticks to a previously specified Bpm. I used the following code: MetronomeBeatsPerSecond = MetronomeBpm/60 MetronomeSecondsPerBeat = 1/MetronomeBeatsPerSecond //tickup every real sec MetronomeTotalSeconds += (delta_time*0.000001); if...
