Apologies for the delay.

What GameMaker: Studio version are you using? Also make sure you're using the All version of the extension, not the Windows version.

You cannot do server-side verification so, yes, in that sense your game would be "hackable".

hi im using 1.4.1567 game maker studio 1.. i dont like studio 2 at all :/

Please try updating GM:Studio to the latest version, v1.4.1804. There were some Android-related bugs fixed in the more recent updates.

hi i have tried but it seems that gms1 is not supported anymore :( soooo upset over that!.. iv moved onto the latest gms2.1.4.295 is this supported? thanks again

Unfortunately GM:Studio 2 is currently not supported by GameMaker Server.
DaDonMike on 5 Jul 2018, 17:35:30
thats not good.. they are forcing us all to use gms2 only as you cant buy gms1 anymore and its been removed from the store.. the only gms1 they have dont support new licences ether.. is there any plan to support gms2 in the near future?
Size43 (Administrator) on 5 Jul 2018, 18:20:10
Unfortunately GameMaker: Studio 2 is not backwards-compatible with GameMaker: Studio 1, so updating the extension requires a full rewrite. As this extension is very complex, it takes a long time to re-write everything from the ground up so it definitely won't be ready in the near future.

You should still be able to download any GameMaker versions you own from your account page here:

do you have facebook? be easier to talk on messenger then here and avoids spamming your website..

on that link i can only download gms2 and gms1.4.1804 witch my licence dont seem to like or that its bugged out on me? the build button is greyed out on android.. any ideas?
Size43 (Administrator) on 5 Jul 2018, 19:29:02
I prefer keeping discussions on this site.

If you have a valid GM:Studio 1 license, it should allow you to use 1.4.1804 without any issue. If you've bought the Android module separately you might've received a separate license key which you might need to re-enter as well.

yea well was fun wile it lasted.. im going to gms2.. if you ever deside to support it i may come back to this.. if not thanks anyway

it is working in only networking event right?
Size43 (Administrator) on 21 Feb 2015, 19:37:34
The INI functions will work in any event, as long as the game is connected to the server.

You cannot edit or delete anything you post. If you really want to get something removed, you can use the report link. Please don't use it if you want me to fix a spelling mistake or something like that though, I won't do that :)
