Update 1.8.6 released

Another small update fixing a few bugs.


  • Fixed a problem that caused values smaller than -64 or non-integer values to become positive in the GM8/DLL version.

  • Possibly fixed a problem that caused the server to go down at random times

  • Fixed a problem that prevented syncing the destroy of an instance that was synced using is_extended.

  • Fixed an invalid comparison error

  • Fixed a bug that caused the positions of instances to lag behind.

Hello again Size43, just checking in on how hosting a 39dll server is going. No rush, just curious. :\/

I haven't really had time to work on it a lot :(

It's a really cool project and I want to work on it, but tuition, studying and keeping GameMaker Server running has to get priority. I'm hoping to get some work on it done around christmas, when I have two weeks vacation again.

I can't seem to login somehow in my game. Might be the server is down.

Need your permission. there is so many games uploaded in Games tab, but those games are only for windows and i have created my game for Android. i used this GMS server in my android game called GDM so can i upload it on Games Tab?

Need a feature to we can delete the Section in Game INI. I don't know how to delete the Section in GAME INI.
if i can delete the Section then please tell me how?

A section will be removed automatically. Log out and back in, or open a PlayerINI and then open the GameINI again and it should be gone.

Please send me your gmk so I can fix the bug.

While I'm working on fixing it, you can hide the error. To hide the error, you should call gms_debug_hide_errors(). Note that this will hide all non-fatal GameMaker Server errors.

Hello Size43,
I used gms_debug_hide_errors() but i does't hide the gms_ini_game_read error if i play without the internet. so how can i hide the gms_ini_game_read if users has't the internet. and sometime this server does't working so it showing error in my game. i used if condition as os_is_network_connected() then it does't load the game(Infinity Loading Screen) so i need a solution. How can i hide the game maker server errors while the server not working.
Size43 (Administrator) on 26 Jun 2015, 16:09:37
The error is not an error generated by GameMaker Server, so naturally GameMaker Server can't hide the error.

You can use gms_info_isconnected to check whether the game is connected to the server. Also, based on the error message I'd imagine that if you set GDM_VERSION to a value even if the game is not connected, everything should work.

Hello namlunthkl,
I am not sure but i think the problem is you are already logged in in your game, if you are using any Login code and you are already logged in your game then it will crash. if you are already logged in then You have to logout before you Login. and also use gms_logout() before game_end() code to the Quit button, so that will logout before you quit.
Good Luck , I hope it will work & Sorry if my English is bad.

namlunthkl on 21 Jun 2015, 17:03:37
