A downloadable tool for Linux

Convert your GameMaker Studio 2 Linux games into single runtime executables that don't need installation and will run on any modern Linux distribution out of the box. No longer are you limited to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. Works on any Linux distribution that supports the AppImage format, as this tool converts your game to an AppImage file. Comes with complete "Key to Success" platformer game for demoing purposes. Source code included for everything. Made with GameMaker Studio 2 and the libraries were written in C++. AppImageKit's source available separately from GitHub officially: 

https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit

  • GMAppImager-aarch64.AppImage is the file to download for 64-bit ARM distro's, (like Manjaro).
  • GMAppImager-armhf.AppImage is the file you want for targeting 32-bit ARM, (such as RPi OS).
  • GMAppImager-x86_64.AppImage is for 64-bit-only Intel and AMD based platforms (non-ARM).
  • All *.zip files are currently the GameMaker Studio 2.3+ projects and extension C++ source code.
  • Key.to.Success-*.AppImage is an example game compiled for the architecture listed in its name.
  • Key.to.Success-*.zip is the source code to the example game so that you may convert it as well.
  • Technically works with non-GM games and software as well if you know what you are doing.

Another update! I'm looking forward to checking it out soon. Thanks for all that you do. 

GMAppImager relies on 3rd party extensions I wrote for GameMaker. Whenever I make the slightest OCD change to my extensions I tend to update all my assets and projects which rely on them, so that everything is using the latest versions of my work. Just a heads up, most the time these sort of updates don't actually change whether GMAppImager works or not, it might even be something as silly as a whitespace change in the underlying code. Just an FYI. However, if any serious bug fixes or feature additions make it into GMAppImager, you will be the first to know. :)

Okay, thanks for the information!

I am looking forward to checking out the recent update!

Is everything working ok for you? Again, if you ever need anything my discord handle is @samuelvenable. I provide free support, and to a pretty good extent.

Thanks for caring like you do. That's awesome. I see that you posted an update, so I'll try with another export to see how things go soon.

This is fantastic! As far as you know, would the converted appimage work in something like Batocera or Retropie for a Raspberry pi?

This hasn't been updated in a while, and it is known to not work with Debian-based distros (save Ubuntu-based ones, which do work), it works on any modern distribution for the most part except for anything closely related to or stemmed from Debian, because the software packages are too old and GM requires ones slightly newer. I'd recommend trying it out and if it doesn't work for any reason contact my discord handle @samuelvenable and I'll be happy to fix any bugs if you encounter them where possible. :)
