GameMaker Studio update addresses rogue DRM issue

Thursday, 29th November 2012 02:30 GMT By Brenna Hillier

An update has been issued for popular entry-level game development tool GameMaker Studio to correct an unfortunate DRM issue caused by an earlier patch. PlayerAttack reports the suite’s previous update introduced a bug which caused DRM to trigger on legitimate copies as well as pirated ones – permanently plastering pirate symbols all over the game’s resources. Some very unhappy users are now disastrously educated on the importance of multiple back ups.

    Everybody needs to STOP reporting this damn story because they updated GameMaker to fix this yesterday.
