How does a WHILE loop work in GML?

The while loop works as follows:

{
while( [expression is true] ) {
//Do this code
}
}

The while loop re-runs until the expression contained within the parentheses is false. Take a look at this example:

{
while(!place_meeting(x,y,obj_ground)) {
y += 1;
}
}

This while loop tells the object to move down one pixel until it collides with obj_ground. Unfortunately, nothing guarantees that this loop will not run forever. Always make sure that when you construct a while loop that you make sure that it does not run forever. Take a look at this whileloop:

{
while(obj_ball.y < y) {
draw_sprite(sprite_index,0,x,y);
}
}

This while loop will run for ever. Why? It does not have any statements that insure that the while loop aborts. Again, Always make sure that when you construct a loop that you put statements in the loop that will eventually abort the loop. y -= 1; is the statement in this new while loop that eventually aborts the loop:

{
while(obj_ball.y < y) {
draw_sprite(sprite_index,0,x,y); y -= 1;
}
}

Can you download and use game maker on windows xp for free?

It is possible to download a Lite version of Game Maker on windows xp

The lite version is simply the same as the standard without some features such as CD tranfering, etc

It is possible to legally operate without these parts through the use of CD burning software or resizing sprites

These "standard edition only" parts can only be used with the purchased full version of by downloading a 100% illicit Crack/hack for gamemaker

These cracks however are fairly unsafe and can be fatal to devices (or steal your hard earned cash)

Who made video games?

Who invented video games

The very first idea for an interactive electronic game came in 1951 when Ralph Baer, instructed to build the best TV in the world, had the idea of including a game into the TV. However his superiors didn't like the idea, and so it took another 7 years before the idea would emerge again. In 1958, physicist Willy Higinbotham invented the first Pong-like game on an oscilloscope, to stop visitors to his lab getting bored. However it was in 1961 that most people agree the first true computer game was invented. Steve Russell, a student at MIT, used a Digital PDP-1 to create Spacewar. Though the graphics were extremely primitive, Spacewar inspired Nolan Bushnell to create a version of Spacewar that could be played on a home TV. Creating 'Computer Space', the first home video game was born.

What is the serial number for Game Maker?

Where Is Your Serial NumberThe serial number would either be on the back of the CD case or within the documentation that came with your software when you purchased it. You will know it is the serial number because it is a mix of numbers and/or letters separated by dashes, usually 20 characters long. Install Without Serial NumberYou can't install this software without the serial number. Follow the on screen instructions during installation. One of the instructions will come up asking you to enter the serial number - put it into the white boxes - and the installation will continue. You can't use the software without installing it. What To Do If You've Lost YoursContact costumer services at Game Maker - by mail, email, or phone. They will probably need proof of purchase such as original receipt, bar code on package, or some other form of identification. They will instruct you on what is needed and will then give you a new serial number if necessary. More InfoDownloading proprietary software is illegal (except for trials). This is called piracy. Using serial numbers that you did not purchase is also illegal, even if you purchased the software and lost your serial number (see above for obtaining a new one in this case). It is also illegal to use key generators (keygens) which provide serial numbers as well as cracks to bypass expired time trials or entering a serial number and no-CD cracks which enable you to use the software without the original purchased CD for the software.

provide serial numbers or links to serial numbers. We will also not provide information or links on where to obtain pirated software, serial numbers, keygens, or cracks. If you are caught doing any of these, you may be blocked from using WikiAnswers as well as reported to the proper officials and/or the company who created the software.

Note: This is a catch-all question. Neither it nor its alternatives should be deleted or removed. It should also remain protected so that illegal information cannot be posted.

How does Open loop System in automobile work?

I'll assume that you are referring to how the fuel injection system operates when it runs open loop vs. closed loop.

In brief, a modern car's engine has a computer that controls how much fuel to deliver to the cylinders via the fuel injectors. It takes into account many things including the temperature of the air and engine, the speed of the engine, the load on the engine, etc. Based on all these inputs, it checks a table that was created by the designing engineers and determines how much fuel to deliver. However, the table cannot possibly take into account all the variables that exist in the real world. So the system is designed to measure the amount of oxygen left over in the exhaust using an O2 sensor. This information is used by the computer to make small corrections to the values from the table. The goal is to get the best possible combination of fuel economy, performance, and emissions. When this is occurring, the system is said to be running closed loop.

There are times, such as when the engine is cold or when the driver floors the gas pedal that the system is designed to only use the information from the table and to ignore the O2 sensor. Under these conditions the system is said to be running open loop.

How long is a step in Game Maker?

It depends on your room_speed.

By default, the room_speed is set to 30, so technically, a step is one thirtieth of a second.

So,

30 steps = 1 second

60 steps = 2 seconds

15 steps = 1/2 a second

(With room_speed set to 30)

Glad to help ;)
