    A new 1.4.9999 has gone out this afternoon to fix the wrong audio playing (especially when using emitters) issues which a few of you have mentioned. Considering we are now 2 full months and a few days after the end of support date, this is definitely the last one... That's All Folks!

    The release will be moved to the Stable channel early next week. If you're on 9999 already, you will need to use the installer in order to update - click the heading in the release notes page: http://www.yoyogames.com/downloads/gm-studio/release-notes-studio.html

    Thanks to all of you for helping iron-out issues with this final release!

    Thanks for telling! But it's a shame the other issues are not solved (can someone please confirm?)

    If I didn't specifically call out the change as having been fixed and added this info to the release notes also, it didn't get changed. Sorry, but we only had a very limited amount of time for this final-final-final release.

    Just wondering if the suggested fixes in this part of the notes have anything to do with the issue I had with the application surface early in the thread:

    I can't even tell if this is the issue I should be tackling, before I start to tackle it.

    For reference: my earlier post

    Well, unfortunately the sound issue I reported was never fixed, which I now found out was due to 1.4.9999 introducing tons of issues with audiogroup_default and now the program outputs hundreds of errors about "Access Violation" when attempting to test out any project.

    In fact, now whenever I test any of the projects that I am working on, the test builds randomly freeze completely(everything stops: sounds, picture, animations, etc) with no popups or errors. Yet what's odd is that said test build still uses 100% of a single thread, and can only be ended through task manager, which does not indicate that the task is not responding. Nothing in the Compile log shows up when the freezes happen.

    The debugger also becomes unresponsive, and can't even do simple tasks like restarting the test build or setting breakpoints.

    Now obviously this is completely unacceptable, as this nasty issue was not happening in 1.4.1773, nor in earlier builds of 1.4.9999. I know this won't get fixed since 1.4.9999 is the last update that will ever be made, but this makes me wish that much more time was put into testing this final update.

    Do you know in which ealier build?
    Because I saved all 3 of the 1.4.9999 versions, before YoYo took them off.

    Best Regards

    My question is : is it still possible to deliver a good quality game under the new update? As a final release, it has to be the primary objective. Is it possible to have two different versions of GM 1.4 on a same computer. While at it, is it possible to have both GM 2 and GM 1.4 installed?

    Yes. They are completely separate products so can be installed on the same computer.

    You can even go as far to have two different versions of each on there if you are feeling hard core. Well technically three, but I don't want to overload minds here.

    So, I can have GM 1.4.1772.... GM1.4.9999... and GM2 at same time? Wait, I think I remember someone in the forum had problem installing a new version of GM1.4 because parts of an older version remained. It won't enter in conflict?

    Yes.

    You can also install the new version from steam and the older versions from the installer. Windows won't care :)

    Windows won't but I'm still uncertain for GM. You have two 1.4 installed and have no conflicts? I would like to read from others about this. Thanks for the answer.

    @NeonBits

    I created a new windows user to install 1804 separately from the 9999 version due to its incompatibility with certain older android devices.
    It works but it's obviously a hassle.
    Note also, and I can't remember exactly the procedure, but I had trouble loading/compiling the same gmx across two users when it was saved under a 'users' folder, even the public folder. So consider saving the gmx outside the users folders. May have to toy around with permissions too, I don't remember...

    I'll keep this in mind, but I won't download this right now during a project.
    Humanly, it's always possible to improve something, but I doubt the wallet wants them to...

    room_restart & game_restart functions are causing memory leaks for me. they don't do this in v1.4.1804

    Really? I thought they caused leaks since GM's inception and hence I've never used them :p

    i'm told they caused leaks in older versions but I don't think i got them before I used v1.4.9999. maybe someone else can test them out & see if they get the same results as me?
    (I use room_restart on re-spawn. hope I don't have to rework my system.)

    You use "room_goto" instead?

    Well, a number of things - depends on the structure of the game. I tend not to rely on a lot of GM's inbuilt "helper" systems as past a point they're inflexible

    If you have a link to a tutorial on such fashion, I would like to see.

    I am not sure, but it may have been the build before the final 1.4.9999 was released. I lost track because I stopped trying out the betas when they broke the default audiogroup.

    Problem in GameMaker Studio 1.4.9999.

    The get_integer_async is not work like get_integer work, it is have some big problem.Use get_integer_async will get wrong value.

    And the color is not right.The code is c_bule but run in windows it shows red.The color in android is right.

    You should read the Manual entry on get_integer_async() before trying to use it. The entered number doesn't come from the return value like with get_integer(), it comes from async_load[? "value"] in the Dialog event.
    I've observed this problem in some functions like effect_create_above(), but 1.4.9999 is out of support and you should not expect any action from YoYo at this point. You would have to reverse the colours yourself as shown in this post.

    Has anyone found a way to deal with the sound files being mixed up at playback?
