Licensing


Once you have downloaded and installed GameMaker Studio 2, the first time you use it you will be requested to input your licence details: GameMaker Studio 2 Login Screen

Your licence is tied to a YoYo Account (YYA) and you are required to have made one to be able to use GameMaker Studio 2 . This account holds all your licence details for the YoYo Games products that you own, and is also used for the YoYo Games Marketplace. You can find out further information about the YYA from the following page:

  1. Creating A YoYo Account
IMPORTANT! If you have been using a Trial Licence for GameMaker Studio 2 and then buy one of the other licences (Desktop, Mobile, UWP, Web or Console) then you will may to log out of the IDE and then restart GameMaker Studio 2 and log back in again to make sure that the new licence is applied correctly (although this should happen automatically). You can log out from the File Menu.


Proxy Support

If you require Proxy Support for your installation of GameMaker Studio 2, this can be added simply by clicking the Proxy. This will bring up the following window: GameMaker Studio 2 Proxy Window

You can now add in your proxy details. Some of the fields shown above are optional and if there is one you don't require then simply leave the field blank. Before continuing however it is worth noting that if you have set a proxy in your Windows Internet Options, and it doesn't require a username/password, then it should just "as is" and you probably will not be required to set up the proxy in GameMaker Studio 2.

If your proxy does require a username and/or password, then you'll need to add them in to the fields shown in the window above. Note that in these cases the username/password/proxy details will always be required, and that the proxy IP should also have the port added, ie: xx.xx.xx.xx:port.

Once you have added the relevant information, click on Okay and log in to GameMaker Studio 2 as normal.
