What works


Running/Compiling projects with Windows target

Compiling projects with HTML5 target

Saving/Loading Projects

What does not

There were often hiccups in small areas, such as loading a new project after already creating one where it would freeze. Also many things don't work off the bat (such as directly running HTML5 projects) without some work.

The main issue is getting around the skinning problem. After that, the program works quite well. Also, running some demo projects resulted in quite decent FPS, generally a few hundred FPS which makes testing doable.


What was not tested

Everything else.

Additional Comments

To get around the skinning issue, you can "disable" or change skins: 1. Install GameMaker normally, then launch it and let it set itself up. You will notice the skinning makes it unusable. 2. Go to the wine directory -> .wine/drive_c/users/username/Application Data/GameMaker-Studio/skins and rename GmGreen.col to GMGreen_backup.col as well as GmGree.skn to GMGreen_backup.skn. 3. Relaunch GM. You will get an access violation, but GM should boot and work (albeit kinda ugly). 4. Enter your license, or click to use the free version and you should have the intro screen. Create a new project or load a demo. Things should work, but you can now switch the theme to GM8 which will remove the access violation and make things look a little cleaner. To do this go to file-> preferences and click GM8 under the "Select Skin" option. Restart GameMaker and you should be good!
