Possibility of moving to Game Maker 8
« on: January 10, 2010, 11:24:36 am »

With Game Maker 8 recently released, we could move gg2 over to it.  I have built the gg2 exe in gm8 so we can test it out.

Please download it and give it a try.  Do any new bugs come up?  Do you get any new errors?  Is it faster?  Is it worth making the switch to gm8?

This is the current version, 2.1.4.  3 scripts were changed because there were changes to GM functions.

CustomMapProcessLevelData

Changed From
Code: [Select]
global.CustomMapCollisionSprite = sprite_create_from_surface(walkmaskSurface, 0, 0, surface_get_width(walkmaskSurface), surface_get_height(walkmaskSurface), true, true, false, true, 0, 0);
To
Code: [Select]
global.CustomMapCollisionSprite = sprite_create_from_surface(walkmaskSurface, 0, 0, surface_get_width(walkmaskSurface), surface_get_height(walkmaskSurface), true, true, 0, 0);

CustomMapInit

Changed From
Code: [Select]
background_replace(CustomMapB, argument0, false, false, false);
To
Code: [Select]
background_replace(CustomMapB, argument0, false, false);

Alarm Event for alarm 1
for object DeathCam:


Changed From
Code: [Select]
DeathCamS=sprite_add("deathcam.bmp",1,0,0,0,1,400,300);
To
Code: [Select]
DeathCamS=sprite_add("deathcam.bmp",1,0,0,400,300);

I've been using a GM8 client for a while now, it runs great with no errors. I say do it.

And for you pirates out there, GM8 was far easier to crack than GM7.

But stealing is bad, you shouldn't steal from people.

I did a little timed test.  The GM8 version is a couple seconds faster for me from "Preparing to Launch" to the Faucet screen.

I gave a copy of the current build compiled in GM8 to Muddywater, and people claim that his server did run smoother.

Less lagspikes and whatnot.
