game_id

Returns the unique game identifier.

Syntax:

GML Code Example

game_id


Returns: Real


Description

This read only variable returns the unique identifier for the game you have created. You can use this if you need a unique file name, or anything else that needs something to identify your game only. This can be set in the Global Game Settings.


Example:

GML Code Example

ini_open("Score.ini");
 ini_write_real("Scores","0",score + game_id);
 ini_close();
 

The above code performs a very basic encryption on the score by adding the game_id to it before saving. On reading it back into the game you would deduct the game_id to get the correct value again.
