i am making a 2d platformer and i was wondering, how can i make it so that when the player hits a ceiling, white star particles fly out?

You have many options. You can:
  • use the particle action in game maker (very basic customization);
  • use the particle scripts provided by gamemaker (much more customization);
  • spawn objects (the best in customization but might be slower if 50+ particles at the same time);
  • spawn one object which would draw the particles (if they don't care about collisions, this is how I usually do it);
Try something on your own and if you have any issues I (or we) can help you.
