    This is a cool little tutorial, and your method for animating the tiles is indeed very efficient and well thought out! Good stuff. :)

    I am very eager to implement this into my project and compare how it performs against my current tile animation system. Something tells me this will be far more efficient. Currently my present system is sucking up nearly 400 fps_real in rooms which use it heavily vs rooms that do not have it active. The profiler shows a less than desirable hit as well. Part of the problem is my outdated gpu which is all the reason more to see if your system is an improvement. I am optimistic that it will be. I'll let you know. Thank you for your efforts @Pixelated_Pope !

    The texture page preview seems to be missing from my options on that page. Am I running an outdated version?

    Oh, nothing of the sort! I was being genuine. As a long time GM user and forums member, I've always looked up to Nocturne. So it was a sort of "senpai noticed me" moment. lol

    I learned a few things I didn't know about GameMaker Studio from this video. Obviously, how to animate tiles. :cool: But also what the heck "textures" are - a way to use them more efficiently, and why I should bother. Thank you.
