Or: How to save GameMaker: Studio 1.4 games from YoYo Games Ltd neglect
I recently published a game built in GameMaker: Studio 1.4 (GM:S1) for Linux (and Windows). It was a process. No, it was 100 times that. Not only that, but I ran into others with similar troubles who were getting a general ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ response. I aim to fix that here.
Hopefully, this may also help to run on more Linux flavors than just Ubuntu.
If you are a gamer hoping to fix a game you found (such as Legend of Xenia, Spelunky SD or Spelunky Classic HD), jump to the “Include all needed libs” section and follow the hint. If you are getting a message regarding
libcrypto.so.1.0.0 missing or
libcurl.so.4 errors, you are definitely in the right place.
