    I want to make a small game with a local multiplayer so that it can be played with two Laptops. Is it possible with GameMaker:Studio 1.4 to connect two (Windows 10) Laptops via wi fi or other wireless Connections?

    Yes. Just with the normal networking functions.

    new question: How do I get the IP adress from the server needed for the client to connect to the network? And where can I find it?

    The person running the server would need to know the IP address of their machine.
    Finding that will depend on the OS you are using. A quick Google search should give you the answer.


    You could also use the broadcast functions, the clients could get the IP address of the server that way.
