    I went along with a tutorial for unlocking levels which was made in 2013. hopefully not much has changed and I just made a mistake on my behalf however the error reads:

    Variable obj_levelsystem.level(100007, -2147483648) not set before reading it.
    at gml_Object_obj_levelsystem_Create_0 (line 4) - case 0:

    and my coding for the create event is:

    image_speed = 0;
    switch(level){
    case 0:
    image_index = 0;
    break;

    case 1:
    image_index = 1;
    break;

    case 2:{
    image_index = 2;
    break;

    I am very new to game maker and I hope I can continue in the future with your help. thank you in advance.

    How does your object know what "level" is suposed to be? You haven't set it anywhere.

    Your "level" variable controls your switch, and it seems like you haven't initialized that variable before the switch.
