Your issue with the fading may have been related to the clamping of draw_set_alpha which faissaloo is attempting to fix in this PR:

I just want to bump this topic because I don't like sweeping bugs under the rug and mention that I can not reproduce an issue with the instance creation code saving. I made an example project and first tested the image_alpha and ran it, worked fine. I then added a second line to set image_angle and it worked fine. I did not close and save the instance creation code, I left it open the whole time. So it seems to not be an issue with the current master, may have been an issue in the old LGM or else it's related to the IDE_* file stuffs.

I can see why he would choose C over C++. One is that C++ has no standard ABI. Thanks to Rusky and DaSpirit I am starting to like Rust. I also hate every Windows port of GCC. Rust has reached stable 1.0 now so it is something to consider. It's nice to be able to return multiple values and be more expressive than C++.

Did you run the game in debug mode? You have to hit the debug icon not the run icon and then do GDB. I think you hit the run button because it's showing ?? in the back trace which suggests there's no debugging symbols. If you run it in debug mode that will tell us file names and line numbers of the errors.

Alright that sounds good. You may want to read my reply in the other post though. I did find an existing issue that I think may be causing your problems. More debugging is needed but I don't have time right now.

I should mention the current task I am working on with ENIGMA is cleaning up the joystick and windows executable code. I've improved compatibility with the XInput gamepad functions. So maybe I'll try to bundle fixes for the Linux joysticks as well after testing.

If anything else comes up just let us know.

I understand your concerns and I actually really like your tools. This is absolutely great and I think these tools could be very useful. I've always maintained the position that every IDE and tool is potentially useful because it all depends on what the job is that needs done.

I actually wanted to create more command line tools for ENIGMA and I started with a CLI to build GMX projects once, but it has since broken:

So for one don't feel bad, your code can't possibly be as bad as mine was. I hacked that thing together and I wasn't very good back then. Since I've advanced a little more I try to stick to formatting code properly and doing things correctly the first time. Really the most important thing is consistency and clarity in your code.

Read the following tutorial that explains how to debug the game with GDB and show us a stack trace:

Also something like Google Breakpad could be considered for ENIGMA as I mentioned in another topic.

I see and I also realize that is undesirable. This would take quite a bit of debugging to solve, and I am not even sure where to look to find this bug. It could also be related to the following GitHub issue which we are keeping open due to known issues with the order of collision events and inheritance.

How are you calling min/max? There is currently a known parser bug that hasn't been fixed.

Awesome! Yeah it's an old GameMaker thing. It probably would have been better in retrospect if image_speed was the fps of the animation, it would be less confusing I think. But for compatibility reasons it's better if we just let well enough alone.

Generally image_speed = room_speed / sprite_get_number(sprite_index); will make the sprite frame always the same as it plays back in the game.

Yeah that will work too, it just needs renamed.

I'll take another look here after bit when I get back home. We have some known issues with those functions.

Have those fixes to the sprite editor been useful rcobra? Is there any other small bugs that could help you with the next version? Also, the graphics are looking great as usual.

It looks like a lot of those issues stem from the fact that ENIGMA uses C++. For example, the first issue is you have some variable named delete which is an operator and therefore a reserved keyword in C++.
