GameMaker Studio 2 FAQs

Does the 30 Day Trial License for GameMaker Studio 2 have any limitations?

Yes, apart from being restricted to 30 days use, there are certain very minor limits on the Trial License. Essentially they are: you cannot create any executable packages for any platform, you cannot use the YYC, and you cannot create a Marketplace Publisher account.


Does the Trial Licence allow me to import my own projects?



Will GameMaker Studio 2 import my Studio 1.4 project? Will it run?

Any version of GameMaker Studio 2 will import GameMaker: Studio 1.4 projects just fine. For any obsolete functions we will generate a compatibility script automatically for you so we can hopefully get your project running straight away – this compatibility script can continue to be used or you can edit your project so the extra script is no longer needed.

Some older resources (e.g., backgrounds and especially the old way of using tiles) will require a bit of manual work to bring them into line with the new functionality.

If it’s an older project you should ensure your project works correctly in 1.4.1763 or later before attempting to import into GameMaker Studio 2. For more information on importing legacy projects into GameMaker Studio 2.


Will GameMaker Studio 2 import my legacy GameMaker (7/8/8.1) project? Will it run?

No, GameMaker Studio 2 does not support these old formats. You will need to use GameMaker: Studio 1.4 to update your project and confirm it all works in 1.4, then re-export from 1.4 to import it into 2.0.

This requires you to have a GameMaker: Studio 1.4 licence already as they are no longer available to purchase and are no provided to new users.


Can I use GameMaker Studio 2 on my Mac?

Yes, the IDE can be run on both macOS and Windows computers.
