I think you've missed a lot of context from your question, which can be found in chat.
Lack of response to your question
Should I close this question? Based on the lack of response, I am concluding it is off topic. Is that accurate?
Nintendo Nightmare [any%] Speedrun Bot (17:37)
If your question were off-topic you'd have gotten a response saying your post is off-topic.
Since you haven't and 125 people have viewed your post I think, without even looking at the question, your question is not off-topic.
I've gone on to read and edit your question.
I've removed a lot of not great content.
For example labelling your code as an AI or bot isn't that important to getting your code reviewed.
I've attempted to fix the easier problems with your question but I think problems still remain.
I become bored halfway through your description.
Explaining how your code speedruns is ok.
But I don't see what the point is when I'm planning on reviewing your code.
You've asked us to not focus on reviewing the speedrunning efficiency.
So the majority of your description is redundant to us.
You've not really talked about the code.
Talking about what the code does isn't talking about the code.
Most of the code I write can be summed up in a sentence or two.
"Yeah, the code speed runs Nintendo Nightmare."
However if another programmer wants to talk about my code, I'll need to talk about more than the high-level description.
I've never used Game Maker 8.0, nor have I ever heard of Nintendo Nightmare.
How do I run your code?
how does one upload files to stack Exchange...
For what you want to do, you can't.
Do we have to attach the files somehow as renamed images?
And it’s not in a text file.
isn’t it against policies and etiquette to link to an external site?
Oh no I meant in general. I thought on ANY website, you should never link people off-site. I’ve always considered it rude.
Lets just stick to your situation.
You have some images you want us to have access to.
Stack Exchange doesn't provide a way to give us images in a meaningful way.
So if you want to provide us images focus on getting us the images, not 'the proper etiquette'.
Using a third party site like GitHub or GitLab would be a preferable way to get us the data.
However distributing the files using an FTP site by giving us an archive - .zip, .tar.gz, .rar - is also an option.
Getting us what we need is more important.
Furthermore, how do we include all the code in a large project?
If you have less than 65536 characters you can just post the code in the question.
If you have more code you need to use another site like GitHub or GitLab.
Am I required to include the entire program’s source as part of the code to be reviewed?
However providing a means to easily access and use the entire source is helpful for getting a review.
As such providing the code on say a third party site like GitHub or GitLab could be beneficial.
The more you make your question a simple "get code and assets -> compile code without issues", the easier a reviewer can review your code.
If the easiest way is to use another site like GitHub or GitLab, then use a third party site to get us the extra code and assets.
Will your code ever be answered?
- Your code is not C, so asking C programmers to review your code is not a sensible idea.
- GML (Game Maker Language - the language your code is written in) only has two questions.
As such Code Review is unlikely to have many GML programmers that can help you.
