@Robert I'm not. GameMaker:Studio is doing that somehow. I know this because in the GM 8.1 equivalent the icon is still down there.

What problems are you having edsquare? I know the resolution is a problem on my point and click games, and that'll take a while to fix due to both bugs in how I made them and how studio handled it. Everything else should work on your machine.

Edit. Are you able to resize your resolution to be 1280x960 or larger? If so it's not hard to do in the meantime. :) a temp fix for you.

I didn't get your email but I will read it after this post. It isn't a fake Google account. If it was from either, which I use for YouTube. Or my hotmail, I don't remember part of what your talking about. But it's no big deal I'll take your word for it.

Okay I understand where you are coming from but I don't always check the window size and every other possible variable when I changed the window styles, I discovered that it was nothing wrong with my code it was a dumb idea Microsoft had that a lot of windows devs have complained about.changing the window style shouldn't every effect the client area size, but on windows it does. I wouldn't be surprised if this problem doesn't exist on the Linux equivalent,

Anyways, sorry about that. I fixed everything you mentioned. The only known issue I have now, which I discovered on my own. The maximize button when having a sizeable window, it can be maximized, but not un-maximized. I know how to fix. If the window rect is greater than equal to the display minus the taskbar area, then don't store the size in a var, otherwise do. When unmaximize is triggered set the window back to prev size. It should be done within a few hours, I'm busy ATM.

Thanks for telling me how to use window handle, I was using FindWindow instead for studio because window_handle I had the impression stopped working in studio, apparently not.


Edit. I'm not being two faced. What I post here was what I really thought was happened and I was wrong, again, and why I thanked your review is because I was being nice to you even though I thought your rating was intentionally harsh, which it wasn't.

I didn't think the direct3d worked at all last I've tried. It's great news that it's working this great now, but the fact that direct 3d is windows-only (cough no Linux support) that's a shame. But I'm happy with this for now. Thank you so much! :D (I haven't tested yet but I def will tomorow)

Edit. we can keep room caption if you ask me, whatever you prefer. I don't mind adjusting my projects slightly to accommodate it either way. :)

Edit2. Funny stuff Mr side note. :p

Good news to GMStudio users like me, they added back sprite_add(), background_add(), and sound_add(). The bad news all external files and resources are sandboxed, which I don't feel like explaining, you can find out in the GMS help file. (Extensions can easily be made to break the sandbox on all platforms supporting native extensions)

Thank you! If you try to compile from the gmx it will crash because the DLL isn't in the same directory as the gmx root. It's in the datafiles sub folder. If you compile from loading the egm I provided, this won't be an issue. Also don't forget the exe I compiled for you already that needs window styler in the same directory, it should be already ;)

Edit. GMStudio doesn't have room captions, BTW, because they deprecated that.

I sent you the files and it includes both the egm and gmx, and the enigma/studio compiled exes.

Click to enlarge, look at red stuff and other added text. These are literally the only 5 issues in porting my game. Literally everything works perfect except.....

Problem 1:

Problem 2:

Problem 3:

Problem 4:

Problem 5:

ENIGMA developers please PM or contact any other private way so I can send you my project reproducing these issues.

This is a small collection of Windows extensions I created and got working in
GM:Studio, GM:8.1, and ENIGMA. Click screenshots to enlarge them.

Change the window border style of your game window to one of many styles.
Download Window Styler:

Embed webpages whether online or local directly inside your game window.
Download Web Browser:

Embed external applications and programs directly inside your game window.
Download Embed Exe:

They are free, open source, and public domain. I hope you enjoy.
