What's the name of the Game Maker you're using? Every one can be a little different.

game maker uses a language called .GML
it's an extension of some other language. I honestly don't know what it is.

The question asked here would basically require you to be taught the whole programming language. And since GM is a very user friendly and easy to use click and drop system, you shouldn't even have to do that.

The logic behind the process you are asking about is simply to create a variable (ex: ex_points) and add points to it. and then when that variable reaches a point add one level to another variable (ex: level_up)


There are web based help documents and if you read through the GM forums you should be able to figure out how to accomplish this.
