New GM:Studio "Stable" Update

Posted by Zac1790 on July 8, 2013, 2:45 p.m.

Broke my game right off the bat.

I'm getting a fatal "malformed variable" error that wasn't there. No changes to the game whatsoever.

On top of that, room_goto_next() is sending me to a completely different room. Wha?

My intended fix… to upgrade to the Beta [unstable] Channel. Maybe they fixed what they introduced. This latest update to the beta channel introduced compiling on Windows so I'm installing VS Studio 2012 to get ready for it. I'll edit to tell you how it goes…

Kinda pissed off though. Up until now I'd been happy with the recent changes in Studio. It was a serious investment to get the Master Collection version and now it's endangering the completion of mah game for the competition!

Also, the reason I'm attempting to upgrade instead of downgrade is that they've made it impossible to downgrade because it will have an error when it attempts to load the project's sound files thanks to the new improvements in that area (which are not actually present, the only changes now are in the dialogue… >:I

Though I think with the current version you can use .dll's in the Windows module once again.

Wait, really?

I uninstalled Studio Forever because I needed DLLs to continue working on a project.

I must try this out this weekend.

Yeah dlls were temporarily disabled to work on other things for studio, though I didn't know that they were now working? I'll have to check into this.

I'm pretty sure they've been working a long time, like since before I got it in December lol

They just use different functions or something. Either way, there is a lot to go over because there are new built-in functions that work for server requests :/
