  1. i did this all but my player keeps moving on random x directions, maybe a problem with the gravity or the collision fiction or the friction, but idk can u help me ?(birdc is because my player can transform into a bird)
    if (place_free(x,y+1)) && (birdc == 0){

    gravity = 0.5;


    gravity = 0;

    if (!keyboard_check(ord("A"))) && (!keyboard_check(ord("D"))){

  3. No, dark's Studio's default theme. White is the theme for all legacy versions (including the legacy Windows).

  4. Really cool, thanks for the help. You explained that so well that even I understood a bit of programming. And I have no previous experience.
