Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installing and running the software.
  • Modifying object properties, GML scripting, building rooms
  • Compiling and running a GMS2 game.
  • Built-in graphics editor.
  • Mostly everything.

What does not

  • Using winetricks is required for installation and running - see Workarounds.


This thread on the official GameMaker forums contains information on the workarounds used. It's a year old, but the workarounds described still work.

.NET Framework 4.5.2 and 4.8 are both required to be installed under a Wine prefix in order to install and run GMS2. Without 4.8, the program ignores the mouse.

Additionally, to be able to compile/run your game under Wine you must modify your shortcut to contain the following line:

Exec=gnome-terminal -- bash -c 'WINEPREFIX="<YOUR WINE PREFIX DIRECTORY>" WINEARCH="win64" wine64 "\GameMaker Studio 2\GameMakerStudio.exe"'

The thread also contains some fixes for bugs that may be encountered.

What was not tested

  • GMS2 Marketplace.
