    Any good starting tutorials for beginners?

    Hello!! I'm a fresh, brand new egg to the GameMaker community and the software itself. This may be a long-winded introduction but I hope you'll bear with me haha.

    Legacy GM Making a Tycoon-style game - any tutorials available?

    Okay, I'd like to make a Tycoon-style (think Gamedev Tycoon, nothing really complex) game in GM. The reason I want to use GMS 1.4 is that I got it when it was given away for free (the Standard deal) and I simply can't afford GMS 2 (and I have other uses for $100 anyway, like Steam Direct fee)...

    Shaders What's a good place to learn shaders?

    I'm absolutely hopeless for finding a good tutorial. Basic, easy-to-understand tutorials preferably, for obvious reasons. I really want to stick some kind of old scanlines/screen-burn type shader in my game but I don't know ):
