lives

This variable is global in scope and is used to hold a numeric value which is usually used for the player lives. This variable is only designed to support legacy projects from previous versions of GameMaker and should not be used in new projects as it may be deprecated in the future.

 

Syntax:

lives;

 

Returns:

Real (single precision floating point value)

 

Example

if (lives < 5)
    {
    lives += 1;
    }

The above code checks the lives variable and if it is less than 5, 1 is added to it.
