Select a button option to explore how custom messages can be displayed in a game or application which do not halt the game execution. The example does not contain a game as such but notice how the game action is paused when displaying a message without actually halting the game execution.

Many games require the ability to display information to the player and although Game Maker Studio contains functions which allow you to do this, the message windows are produced by the OS for the target platform, cannot be customized and cause the game to lose focus.

In order to be cross-platform compatible, games (or application) must not block the client device it is running on pending user input. If the device was a phone it could block an incoming call! Game Maker Studio contains Asynchronous functions which allow messages to be displayed and accept user input without halting game execution however these cannot be customized.

This tutorial will show you how to create your own message objects which you can customize to suit your game. You can create them as fake pop-up windows or, as in this example have them scale in and out.
