Ever since, when I make a sound, I can not open it to add an actual sound file, edit it, or anything else. I tried double-clicking, I...

    Game lags when exported, doesn't lag in IDE builds

    With my game, when I test in in Game Maker Studio, there is no problem at all. The game runs at a solid 60 FPS no spikes or anything.
