Draw a highly customizable sprite-based shadow with these simple scripts!
This asset contains multiple scripts, with each script being unique and capable of multiple ways to customize the shadow, such as length, direction, xscale, yscale, angle, color, and alpha.
This is an essential asset for any GameMaker developer!

It works exactly as advertised.
However I'd like to have some options for
- shadow skew
- blurred shadow or separate shadow sprite (I'd like to have a soft shadow for a pixelated sprite)
Shadow is staying infront of obj?
automatically include it in every new project
this is cool but i need help :/
im using fruit slice demo of game maker and i dont know how to properly use this shadow code on sprites, because there is no objects. can someone help me?
Nice and well done
Just tested simplest shadow and I like it very! Good job Peter!
quality code, very useful
Thank you for providing this code to the GM community.
One can learn a lot by reading your code.
Not to bad
I like how it works, but it really requires a readme sort of thing, or an easily accessible guide on how to use it properly. Other than that, it's a simple way to add a bit more depth and polish to your game
I'm not sure I understand when you say it requires an guide on how to use it properly.
How exactly did you find it hard to use? What was it that you did not understand?
I've already included a detailed description of each argument in the scripts inside the scripts themselves, and the second picture on the asset page shows three examples of how to use the scripts.
Works like a charm!
Does what it says it does, and its simple with low impact on performance.
