Legacy GM sprite losing image and crashing

jb skaggs

Hi, as I was loading sprite files into new sprites- my sprites would suddenly cause my GM to crash.

It started with 17 sprites in the wrong order, so I moved them in the assets window into ascending order- then as I did this the sprites actually began swapping textures / sprite images then GM would freeze and crash.

The only way I found to stop this was to save the game file between every move or sprite load. I have been using GM since 2004 and I have never seen it do anything like this. This is not as I am running code but working in the IDE working on loading in sprites into assets.

It happened about 3 or 4 times before I started saving between each sprite move or load.
