use view_xview and view_yview

Can you post how you made it work with views, i still cant find out how, if i use views it makes all my objects "disappear" because of instance_deactivate_all(true); but if i disable views, the script and objects work like they're supposed too...

Remove instance_deactivate_all ? Just deactivate the instances that can be deactivated...

There are view_hview and view_wview functions. So create the object at view_wview[viewnumber]/2 and view_hview[viewnumber]/2.

I know this topic is pretty old, but maybe I can still get some help here. I am using this system for my game, but I'm noticing that if I want to show one message right after another it runs into a problem. It shows the messages in reverse order and if I want to show 3 or more one after the other it shows the first two (technically the last two since it's in reverse order) and then nothing else. Can I get a little help with this?
