instance_id[] array

Apparently the instance_id[] array is recomputed after the Alarm Events and before the (Normal) Step Event. The Help File isn't specific, it only says:

Note that the assignment of the instances to the instance id's changes every step so you cannot use values from previous steps.

If I read his post correctly, EyeGuy seems to think this happens right before the Step Event. Can anybody confirm this?

Re: instance_id[] array

Actually what I'm saying is it doesn't get updated in between the alarm event and the normal step event (and thus probably happens right before the begin step event).  My test seems to confirm that.

Edit: of course, this is GM6, but I doubt it changed for GM7.
