me: what if i optimized by drawing front to back using a depth buffer

game maker: lol you cant specify depth on sprite draw calls



time to write my own sprite batcher i guess lol

@dankwraith How long till you reach the point where, in hindsight, it would've been faster to rip out Game Maker and do it all from scratch?

@pilum hard to say, there's just so much damn behavior code in this game it would be a huge chore to reimplement everything, but we do lose a lot of time to GM bugs
