Hello, for the past few days when I open GMS 2, it looks like this:

Typically when I restart my computer it will work, but this is getting very tedious and is happening almost every time I open GMS2. Anybody know what is going on here? Using Windows 10.

That's pretty trippy and I've not seen a similar issue before! Have you updated the GPU drivers? Are you on a dedicated GPU or a built-in one? Also, this might be a help to you: https://help.yoyogames.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004943807-How-to-apply-the-Windows-software-renderer-if-your-GPU-does-not-support-GMS2

There were Windows updates as well as a GMS2 update about a day before this started happening, so it's very possible they could be related. No hardware changes.

Jokes aside,

Have you tried playing games ? Does this happen in games ?
Have you encountered this sort of screen tearing or issues in other programs ?

Any chance to roll back either of those to check if the problem still happens?
