|Summary||0028501: Windows: Setting a too-large room will cause game to fail in the GPU on startup, should try to guard this and better inform user|
|Description||Setting a too-large room will cause game to fail in the GPU on startup, causing multiple error dialogues to appear. We should try to guard this and better inform the user that this is due to trying to create a surface larger than the GPU can handle. Right now, the error dialogues you get aren't particularly helpful, as they're all very specific and technical about the issue.|
If you create a new GMS2 project and simply change the default 1280x720 room to be 12800x7200 you will cause this on most GPUs, as you're not using a view to restrict the size of the application_surface on game start.
Expected: On game start we calculate the intended size of the application_surface and confirm that the GPU can handle this before attempting to create the surface. If the GPU cannot handle it, we show an error which says that the application_surface is too big for this GPU to handle and their room size should be smaller or they should use a view. OKing the dialogue gracefully closes the game.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Run the attached project for Windows.|
2. Observe you get a series of error dialogues (about 5 of them in a row).
|Additional Information||The "and their room size should be smaller or they should use a view" bit is probably only suitable during runs, not create exe, as the developer's PC might have been fine, but their customer's PC is not...|
