    Hi Guys!

    I am in the process of releasing my first game to steam. Would any other Steamworks devs be able to give any advice on which Common Redistributables i should add to my package? My game is made in Gamemaker Studio 1.4.

    I really have no idea what to include but i am pretty sure it would be beneficial to include some (i.e. direct x). My game does not include any external DLLs (apart from the included with GM) or anything like that, so it's basic.

    Does anyone have any expert advice for me? :)

    Thanks all

    For what it's worth, I got a game build rejected once for not including Direct X, so yeah, including that is a good idea. Other than that, I've never needed anything else.
