Is this the first GM book funded on Kickstarter.?

02 September 2014 - 07:06 AM

There were some GM games funded on Kickstarter. These games are successful examples:



I discovered this GM book recently. I was very surprised. Is this the only GM book funded on Kickstarter?



The author never writes other book and no sample chapter is available. However, now there are 130 backers for this project. Do they have too much confidence in the author? Kickstarter should be an easier way for every GM book author to make much money.

Old Official Maze Tutorial Question(Video Memory)

12 March 2014 - 02:25 AM

Hi, when I read this tutorial:




In page 6:


"You might want to indicate that no video memory should be used as it is only used in the first room."


Where is this video memory setting? I cannot see this setting in GM 8.1 or GMS. Thanks.

Make Exe File But Don'T Have Exe Extension.

16 February 2014 - 07:59 AM

My game's name is NumberTen. I press Create Executable for Target icon on the Toolbar, Then I select Single Runtime Executable. I don't know why NumberTen-Default-1.0.0 is in the file name space. Why not only NumberTen?  Anyway, I press Save. A file is then created and with the name NumberTen-Default- but there is not exe extension.


If during the process of making EXE file, I change NumberTen-Default-1.0.0 to NumberTen. The file created is NumberTen.exe.


Do other users also need to change file names during the process of making EXE file? Thanks.

Enlarge Tutorial Panel, Enlarge New Project Window

15 February 2014 - 01:54 AM

Hi, I started using Studio recently.


1.  The Tutorial Panel is too narrow. This Tutorial Panel cannot be enlarged but the compiler message window can be enlarged. Strange.


2.  In the Welcome tab of the New Project Window, this page will show some recently opened files' paths. The paths of these files are always very long. The New Project Window is not wide enough to show full paths. If I put the mouse cursor over a path, the full path is displayed. However, this full path will disappear after 1.5 seconds to 2 seconds. The time is too short. Please make that the New Project Window can enlarge.


3. In the File pull-down menu, if select "New Project", the New Project Window is opened. But not in the New Tab, is in the Welcome Tab. Many kids or beginners may be in great confusion. 


4. In the File pull-down menu, if select "Import Project", the New Project Window is opened. But not in the Import Tab, is also in the Wecome Tab. Many kids and beginners may be in great confusion. Please keep GameMaker Studio as a kid-friendly tool.


Thank you.
