What's new in GameMaker Studio 2


2.2.5 is a small but very important stability release, while we continue developing all the new features in 2.3.0.

See below for IDE changes/fixes and check the Runtime Release Notes for in-game changes/fixes.

Updated HTTPS certificate support for the Windows IDE
  • It's still a way off, but by the end of Q2 2020 the YoYo Account servers will have to stop supporting the older HTTPS standard currently used by the Windows IDE
  • (Internet server/traffic circumstances out of our control might make this sooner, but we're planning end of Q2)
  • This release brings the Windows IDE into line with the Mac one, and so both will continue working just fine after that date
Fixes for the Crash Reporter
  • Depending on the circumstances of the crash, some users saw the crash reporter itself would close before they could send us their crash log - this release fixes that
  • If you see the crash report screen, please do send us the report and then we can fix the underlying issue - thanks!
  • Fixed that showing certain font characters in various parts of the IDE would occasionally cause the IDE font to become corrupted
  • Fixed that on macOS the IDE was needlessly requesting permission to have GMS2 receive keystrokes from any application, not just GMS2 itself
  • Fixed the Code Editor so an "if" statement with an immediately succeeding semicolon now says in syntax highlighting that this would be a compiler error
  • Added a reminder to scroll up and read the whole compiler log (and see your Compile Errors window if one appears) to find out why your build failed, rather than only reading the last line
  • Removed some redundant UI for "Extension Options Files" and "Supports" from the Extension Editor
  • For the full list of public IDE issues fixed in this version, see the Change Log
  • Thinking of reporting a bug? See the IDE's Known Issues page first
