Room FAQ (Game Maker)

General

How do I change rooms?

There are several GML functions that change the current room. They are :

room_speed

Can I change the room_speed during gameplay?

Yes, just change the room_speed variable.

room_speed = 60;

Can different rooms have different speeds?

Yes.

Views

Can I view two rooms at the same time?

No, and it's not likely that this will ever be added to Game Maker.

Transitions

Why don't room transitions work in Game Maker 7?

The room transitions in Game Maker 7 have been changed. If you created your game with an earlier version of Game Maker, the room transitions may not work. You may have to get a room transition script to get the transition effect you want.
