hey,
i try to make a game for steam. but somehow when i start my game the steam-panel doesnt pop up. if i try it in gms 1.4 it works perfectly, but not in gms 2. help please

here what i did for gettin there:

-gms2 IDE v2.2.4.474 using Runtimes v2.2.4.374
-downloaded steamworks sdk 1.42
-changed the path to the "sdk" -folder in the preferences in gms2
-activated "steam" in the options/plattform settings/windows in gms2
-added the steam-id of my game in options/main/general in gms2

EDIT:
Ok, finally i found a solution:
somehow the steamworks SDK doesnt work with gms2 downloaded from steam. After i downloaded the actual version of gms2 from the yoyo website all worked perfectly.

It does, but you have to enable the "Use alternative launcher for Steam application" option from the Game Options. ;)
