    GMS 2 Updating (Finally)

    Hi guys, I'm finally taking the leap and upgrading from 1.4 to 2. I know there is an overhaul with the interface, but as far as the GML itself, is there much difference? I believe that the cameras/views work differently in 2, so I'll study that first, but is there anything else that I should be...

    Question - IDE Why does GMS2 steal my mapped drive?

    I have an external drive mapped to the letter U, and my pc backup runs daily to that drive. Sometimes I have the drive off, but the mapping stays, and it works fine when it's on. Today my C drive filled up because it was pushing my backup to...

    How much progress will I lose?

    Not sure if this is the right place. However, it is about game development. Mine, specifically. I'm relatively new to game dev. I spent a long time learning GML. GM Studio's GML. Knowing almost nothing about programming, I sought the help from a few kind GM users. With guidance from my...

    Questions regarding moving from GM:S to GM:S2

    Hi everyone. First post here, but an important one for me. I am currently using GM: Studio pro to develop a side-scrolling platformer. And it has come to my attention that it is rather dated and I want my game to be compatible and reasonably "future proof". So I am seriously considering...

    Guidance Please - Retaining game files post App Store upgrade releases

    Hi All, I am seeking guidance around the best process to use to ensure game files are not lost (i.e. they are preserved as is) after game updates are built and released via the App Store or Google Play. My efforts to find / research this haven't been fruitful - hopefully I have just missed...

    Legacy GM Upgrade System Help

    I'm working on adding an upgrade system to my game where after the level timer runs out, it brings the player to an upgrade menu where you can spend points. I'm having trouble with a player movement speed upgrade at the moment. The idea is that selecting the upgrade option runs a script that...

    GML Real Time Upgrades

    Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to use GMS2 to code a real life timer into an app that runs even when the app isnt open. (Such as how an upgrade in the popular game Clash of Clans can take 2+ days in real time). I cannot think of code I would use to even start this, which is bugging me...

    Main site not giving me an upgrade option for GMS 2

    Hey there, I'm a Game Maker Studio 1.4 user who just downloaded and installed the trial version of GMS 2. I saw the upgrade discount for GMS 1.4 users who wish to upgrade to GMS 2, and tried to upgrade, however each time I try adding GMS 2's Desktop version to my cart like the upgrade tutorial...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to gamemaker2 and I a developing an idea have had for a while. One of the most popular features of games such as prison architect, Sim airport and many more, is that you are not limited by the canvas size.

    Question - IDE Upgrade pricing and Steam

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, I can't find a definitive answer. Priced in Sterling, it looks as though Studio 2 upgrades are slightly cheeper bought through Steam than they are directly from YYG. If I buy an upgrade on Steam, will I also be able to access direct download from my...

    Discussion Resolved: Does the upgrade to GMS 2 from Trial on YYG automatically upgrade it on Steam?

    Okay, I've searched through a number of the Steam questions, but did not see this one. Forgive me if I missed it in the flow and search. I have downloaded the trial version of GMS 2 from YYG. I also connected my Steam account and pushed all of my YYG purchases there so that I had a single...

    Windows GMS 2: to upgrade or not to upgrade

    Okay so I'm currently working on a project I have developing for over a year with GMS Professional and have recently invested in a new laptop - so I'm wondering if it's worth investing in the new software to go with it.. I've been scouring the internet for reviews of Studio 2 but don't seem to...

    Is anyone not switching to GMS2?

    I have recently joined the GMS2 beta, and I honestly haven't felt a strong need to switch over. I'm not sure if I'll eventually have a change of heart, though, considering I was pretty stubborn to leave GameMaker 8. I'm just curious to see if there are any of you that plan to continue using...

    Master Collection to GMS2 Questions

    So, I see we get 50% off of all the modules so far. That's pretty cool. But I also noticed console modules are mysteriously AWOL from the Master Collection to GMS2 upgrade path. So my question: 1. Will Master Collection owners get 50% off the Console module as well when it comes out? Edit: 2...
