GameMaker Studio 2: Simple Game for Beginners

Welcome to a new series! I have decided to embark upon the quest of mastering GameMaker Studio 2, and as I learn interesting new things, I will make a video on that topic. I know there are a lot of tutorial on GMS2 already, but I figured I’d try my hand at it as well.

In this tutorial, we will be making a very simple top down game where a player moves around on a single panel and can collect gems.

I already know the basics of coding but I'm not sure if that is taking me anywhere….. Im not sure if I did something wrong but there is an error with xspd variable. It says, "variable xspd is only referenced once." Please help coding is difficult

    Ah yes, and please don't show the thinks you will not use… adding and deleting code is also not making it all more clear 🙁 But thanks for the tutorial!

    Hmm it's not really beginner-beginner.. Can you explain variables more? And start with questions and answers? Like: what is your name? if your name is Tim, then draw 'hi Tim' else… something like that… For me this is all very confusing…

    i already used Teamclick for like 1 years, and i got a new computer, so i re installed the program on the new pc, but the problem is, is there a config who i cant remember what it is, that its similar to the Interpolate colors between pixels of Gamemaker, it fix the sprite being distorced when resizing, but i cant find it anymore, and i can't find someone who can help me with it. I cant make a game if i cant resize the sprite without them being distorced.

    What is decay?
    Why is it called i?
    Why put brackets after room_restart?
    Why is the code using "audio_play_sound" and not just "play_sound"? Audio is sound, right?

    Coding is too confusing…

    I've seen a lot of people saying the first GameMaker is better than the second. Dunno if you have a take on this but that's what I've mostly seen.

    almightyzentaco – Which is best, Game Maker Studio or Fusion 2.5? I don't know which to buy!! (GMS looks very complex (I'm not a coder) but then Fusion's UI looks really dated.. which to buy?)

  28. Emes 9 months ago

    Could you help me with a choice,
    Game Maker or Unity.

    I have a strong feeling that you'll feel "at home" with Construct 2 or 3 since you came from Fusion, You should give it a try as well.
    Also, a new powerful RunTime is coming to Construct 3 soon and it's insane! check out their blogs. the only thing I dislike is the Subscription-Only for Construct 3… but no doubt, it's much more powerful already compare to Fusion 2.5

  33. Александр Ксенофонтов 9 months ago

    if you wan't to get serious, soon or later you wan't to type code by youself. Also GMS have better features.

  34. Jim Loftus 9 months ago

    Thanks Taco. Overall which do you think is the easier way to go for beginners… Clickteam Fusion or GMS 2…?
