BETA testing?

    I was thinking of sending my friend kind of a "Beta" test of my game, but something in license says I can't really transfer the app. Is there a way to send him a copy of a rookie-game, not even done yet?
    Thanks.

    Um, you can compile the app and send it to friends all you want.

    No, Lukan, that would be called making a game. That's not allowed.

    Need more info - like Lukan said, why can't you compile the game and send a copy to your friend to try out?
     
  5. If you're doing an iOS or Android build, both versions have very good beta testing programs. Very easy to set up. If it's Win/Linux, just run "Create Application".

    Yeah you need the full version to be able to make an executable.

    If you don't have the full version of GameMaker Studio 2 [I assume this is what you're using], then you can't export your game, as it's a trial [once again, assuming].
