2 Things

Posted by TypicalAndy
1. is there any way to change the width of the chat?
2. when I place blocks on my game, the players wont see it if they join but if they are in it they see the blocks.

If you want a clearer question please respond to me.

1. See gms_chat_bind_position
2. I'd need some more details here. How are you syncing the blocks?

Hi Size43,

I have the same problem but not with blocks , with objOtherPlayer, players who joined first can actually see players who join after them.
But when I join the game , I can't see players that are already in the game.

Are you maybe destroying all objOtherPlayer objects? Or maybe the objOtherPlayer object is not marked as persistent?

Try adding a show_message to the create event of objOtherPlayer to see if the objects are created at all.

aswell I have another question can you change the width of the chat but the chat is in a view?
Size43 (Administrator) on 1 Apr 2018, 13:07:18
You can use gms_chat_bind_pos for this.

But it isnt in the view? I tried it and it stays like a object there

Just use view_xview and view_yview to move it to the right position.

Uhh, I tested that and is still stuck, is there anything else?

Please post the code you're using.

enable = true

//gms_show_set_position(view_xview, view_yview, view_xview+view_wview, view_yview+view_hview)

this is the create event since I use buttons to activate/disable the chat

You'll need the gms_chat_bind_pos in the step event. Also note that the 3rd and 4th argument should be view_xview + view_xview and view_yview + view_hview.

what do I need to put in the 1th and 2th argument?
Size43 (Administrator) on 22 Apr 2018, 14:32:43

Im not using GML for the Blocks, I use the Game Maker Blocks and I have set Sync to Create & Destroy

This is working as designed. If you want minecraft/terraria-like block syncing, check out the example in the download and the world syncing tutorial
