Windows Needing Help On Gamemaker 8.1


Codi Campbell

Hey everyone. I'm not quite sure whether or not this is the right page to be posting these issues onto, but I'll try anyway.

I'm following an online tutorial, and I am almost certain that I have followed every step to a T. Of course, he specifically said that it was outdated, but I got the correct version and set it to run on Windows 7 (as I had been told that it ran badly on Windows 8 and 10.

I began coding and working and went to test the game. The only issue is that whenever I try and boot up the game (using the green play button), it loads like normal and then shows me this:
Capture.PNG (please ignore the grey)

I am VERY frustrated and really need your help, community!


Well it looks like something is incorrectly setting the size of the window.
While you were following the tutorial was there anything that used the window functions?
If you find something that looks like it might be related could you please post the code here. Thank you.
