Maybe someone wants to make a game out of this. Or else it would make a good learning resource! :)

It's an engine for games with planetary gravity, possibly with cars in it!

No tutorial. Try the example file and learn from there.

I'm afraid not. Your GM8 version (.gmk) file uses many obsolete functions, including execute_string(). So it definitely won't run in GM Studio, as is. It would need a fair amount of work.

The other problem I see is the near complete lack of proper line terminations (semi-colons). GM allows that, but it's a bad idea. It can lead to errors or unexpected results that can be hard to identify. So I strongly urge you to fix this.

Other than that, the code is well formatted and fairly easy to follow. So members who want the challenge of re-writing it for Studio should be able to do so. Ideally however, that member would be you. :rolleyes:

That would be great! I tried to port it the other day, but I think I messed up with it. I remember it was crashing for some reason I didn't know...
I can give it a try, but I won't promise anything, porting over is really hard to do :/
