Hello everybody !
I have a question about good practices in programing : when you want to change an object's variable, do you use "with" or "my_object.my_variable" ?
the two ways seem to work :
my_variable_health = 10 ;
Obj_Player.my_variable_health = 10;
Is it possible to not only watch a variable for changes but when it does change, show you the line of code that caused it to change? This would be invaluable knowledge if it's possible.
Thanks in advance.
(I'm only a few days into using GML, but I have other programming experience)
Alright, basically I have a very simple button/door system. What I do is, I make a door's ID "door1", and corresponding button with "button1", which is fine. But apparently I can't use the same ID's between different...
I have a small problem in my mobile project. I created a button that should lead to the next level. All the level atributes are saved in scripts: scr_level1 , scr_level2 , scr_level 3 and so on. So in the button I added these lines:
// this button is in rm_game
//when button is...
So I have a variable (shots_fired) that counts how many time a gun is fired, but for some reason it will continuously add to the variable, even with a condition check:
if parent.image_index >= 1
image_angle = 10;
Hello all :),
I have been making some headway on my game and have been somewhat trying to polish/ fix up my code to be easily expanded on so that I can start adding "Content".

I'm creating an array of variables to track progress for each area in my game like so:

So these variables aren't being recognized by the IDE for some reason, even though I am using them two lines afterward.
I tried restarting the IDE and reloading the project but that didn't fix it unfortunately.
My guess is that this is a bug related to the new warning system but i'm not sure.
Hey coders, I initialise all my global variables in my first page. When i move into a fight i want the if/else statements to allow for me to create a battle system but the global variables are not being updated. (Also to note the global.MonsterSpeed> global.Spd is always called even if Spd is...
Hello, I'll try to explain what I mean, but I have a Input Object (o_input) that has all the controls for the character like:
action_one_pressed_ = gamepad_button_check_pressed(xbox_controller, gp_face1) or keyboard_check_pressed(ord("D"));
Hi! Long story short. My strategy game has multiple 'unit' objects stored under 3 parents: player1_par, player2_par, and cpu_par. The parents are all supposed to attack one another, so that player1_par's children objects attack player2_par and cpu_par, and so on. I can store both the player...

Hi guys, I'm making a space trading and top down simulation game similar along the lines of the Patrician series and somewhere along the code I've run into an issue I'm quite unable to solve by myself. Most of code structure is established by now and all it's left is to assign resource transfer...

ActiveVars allows you to link scripts and variables, so that when the variable changes the script is called.
Common uses may include:

I might sound pretty stupid asking this so sorry about that.
But I'm trying to do this:
Player obj walks to vault obj and presses z and it changes (escapedoorlocked = true) - (escapedoorlocked = false)
But it doesn't work for me. So can someone help me?
I'll post code if needed.

I´ve got a problem with variables.
When i set global.enemyspeed = 2;, and then into the enemy object-step-alarm = 300;
alarm = 300;
But in the game, the speed is on +2 until next enemy spawns.
When next enemy spawns the speed is again on 2.
