    Game Update Create ...,

    I recently exported my finished project from GameMaker. Now I've added a few new features, but after I've exported it, unpacked it and started it, it's still at the same level as when I exported it the first time. Do you have to pay attention to anything with updates?

    Is it okay to make a game maker in game maker ?

    I tried to develop a game creation program in Game Maker Studio. I heard that there could be legal consequences for that from my friend so I stopped developing it.
