Earlier this morning I fired up my copy of Game Maker 8.1 (all up to date) to discover that I was getting a black screen with one of my projects. I hadn't edited the coding in a while, and the last time I did, it ran fine.
So, I booted up another project, ran it, and I got a critical error. Then the exe crashed. I have no idea what's going on. It's most likely not my computer, as I've tested the issue on two other computers and gotten the exact same results.
In one of my programs, for debug purposes, you select your monitor's resolution, which is then applied before you move to the next room. However, for some reason, when I select a resolution, the screen resolution does change, but everything goes black, and the game doesn't transition to the next room.
In the other program, I can't even get the .exe running. Right after it loads, I get two errors: this, followed by an "Unexpected error occurred when running the game." message. It's driving me crazy. It must have something to do with resolutions, but I don't know!
These are the two files I mentioned. I don't know what is going on. These files WORKED at one point. I haven't touched them since they last worked, and I don't know what else to do. Are the files corrupted? Even the backup files don't work!
