Make your game's file size smaller.

Post by CarnivorousA on Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:15 am

When your game is completed, try converting all drag and drop thangs into code, it really reduces the file size and makes you look smarter Smile

Alright.... there has already been a topic on the point of GML that states this, but since that is not in this forum category, this wont be deleted.

This is a helpful application for converting D&D to GML. You just put what D&D it is, out in the variables/arguments and stuff, and then it presents the GML in a copy and paste format.

I agree that you agree.
The only thing is that they don't all have the option to apply the action to other or some different object. You have to type that in yourself (If you want the code it's 'with(other){actions}' or 'with(objectnamehere){actions}' )

WAIT!
This may not be true, I converted all the D&D of the player object on my game and the file size rose about 0.2MB, then it went slower.

Strange....did you add more stuff to it, pherhaps the stuff added put on that extra space. Alsp, make sure that you are comparing the .gmks and not comparing the gmk to the exe

I didn't add anything, I just replaced the d&d with code that does the same thing. And I'm not comparing it to the exe, I'm not that stupid.

lol. also- you get file size when putting into exe. also- gml doesnt always have exact commands. where you might want a command youll end up typing in something different. ie. instead of the D&D when key press left (doesnt take up space in the file as its not a command) but in step you add file size by puting in key_press(vk_left)
