Launching Old Steam Workshop Game (Game Maker Lite 1.8 with a game.dat)

Hi,

I uploaded some games on the Steam Workshop during the days of GM Lite and I’m trying to just run the games and I can’t, I have a "game.dat" which looks to be the equivalent of an exe but is there anyway to run that in 1.8 outside of Steam Workshop?

You can still download 1.8, but obviously it's no longer on Steam and that’s what it was made in, the game won’t run on the current version of GM.

Can someone help please?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately I don't believe this option is working for me as the game comes in a "game.dat" with a Steam Workshop download, so the converter is asking for an exe... I tried changing ".dat" to ".exe" but it says that it can't accept this file.

Any other ideas as to what I might be able to do please?

Thanks.
