    is there a ETA for the fix of this issue? I have been using GMS 2 since beta and this problem on windows 10 was from the start... I remember they told me that it was a windows related problem... but after all this time havent you able to fix this problem? that answer sounds more like "we dont want to change the way we import assets so is windows fault bye" is very persistent and a lot of people have it... you have to do something with the stability of your ID or a lot of people will abandon the engine... yeah I am a little upset about this

    It IS a windows related issue and YYG have been working with Microsoft these last months to try and resolve the situation, and please understand that the issue is absolutely related to Windows and has been incredibly tricky to pin down. The good news is that a coming update contains a fix (we hope!) that appears to work 100% to resolve it... Meanwhile, you can save yourself some pain by doing the following when you start GMS2: before trying to load a project, simply open up the Marketplace from the top menu option, and if it loads, then your session is good and you should not experience the freeze for the duration of the session. If it gives a blank page, then your session is bad and you should restart GMS2.

    I've been unable to import any assets since two days ago and GM2 is freezing often.I'm somewhat dissapointed with GM2 too. If they're charging so much for his software it should be polished.

    The product IS polished. This is a Microsoft issue introduced with the Creator Update some time ago. Since then YYG have been working with MS to find the root cause of the issue and resolve it, which (fingers crossed) it appears they have for the next update.
