Mac OSX Disabling splash screen when testing on Mac?


Hello everyone! Just a quick question, how do I disable the splash screen when testing on Mac IDE? Feels like I'm being forced to look at the splash screen for no reason for around 3 seconds or so. Combined with the awful compile time of GM itself, it's quite annoying. When you've invested in high end hardware that can compile a GM project in about 2 seconds or so, having to wait 3 more seconds to have to pointlessly look at the splash screen is frustrating.

From version 2.3.0 and upwards,, testing from GameMaker on the Mac should automatically skip the splash screen (ie: the splash will only be shown for fully compiled builds).
