General Room Functions And Variables

Rooms in GameMaker Studio 2 are where everything happens in your game and you must have at least one room in any game for it to run, but you may need many more depending on the type of game and how you structure your project. This section has all the general GML functions and variables related to rooms and getting information about them as well as for setting certain properties within them.
