Copy and paste this trigonometry without trying to understand how it works whatsoever. What could go wrong?

Not being rude, but this just awful. You clearly have no idea what the code does, but you're TEACHING it to people. Wtf? Please, just stop.
I would ask you to explain what you're doing as you go along... But you clearly don't know what you're doing.

it would be useful if you put the coding and pictures in the description so we can make a game just like yours...

Try setting the depth of your camera object to 100.

+isaiah o' connor First you must create a texture, and then open it. On the window that says New Backgroud and Load Background, look for a box that says "Use for 3d" Then select it.

I keep getting this error Error in Object obj_cam, Event Step, Action 1 at Line 2, Position 60: Symbol ) expected. Not sure what that means but O get 3 errors like that. Help?
Thanks, I've wanted a kick start into d3d for some time now, and this is just what I needed. If I may, I'd like to offer a few suggestions. First, I was able to learn what the functions mean from the help file, but, as this is a tutorial, it would be nice to have some explanation instead of "just copy what I've written." Secondly, the right and left can be simplified to x = x - sin(direction*pi/180); y = y - cos(direction*pi/180); Finally, a little detail, you can center the camera at the beginning by centering the mouse in the player create event. Thanks again.

I need help, I have GameMaker: Studio. Everytime I try run the game my walls don't appear in 3D and they don't gain any perspective. If anyone could help it would be great, cheers.
