    Did yoyo shut down the gm 8.1 servers, it keeps asking for a licence even though I already have the full version. I was using it at least a few weeks ago and as I understand you only need to be online once a month for the licence to verify, so what's going on?

    Also my GM Studio 1 and 2 are both working.

    A new month started 2 days ago. The verification period may be based on the calendar, not last verification.

    I see no reason to wait. I'm not quite sure what the problem here is - so far, it sounds like it's only asking you for verification, not that you're unable to verify.

    Are you completely unable to verify or does it merely ask you for verification?

    I cannot verify, it just keeps saying "Download Error: The connection to the server was Reset"

    Then I click ok, it says Game maker is unable to validate your licence.
    If I enter my licence it just repeats the same messages.

    I figured it out, my home wifi is blocking yoyo games website, I connected through my hotspot and it's worked. Thanks for helping me.
