I love it! Dual-monitor support please! Though I might just end up running it on a separate computer all of the time. Any plans for putting it on linux? I am particularly thinking Raspberry Pi?

The dual-monitor support stopped working and I'm not sure why. Could be from a change to Windows. I have it working on the version I'm rewriting, but at the cost of being able to resize the window when in windowed-mode. Hoping I can get both features working. Not sure about macOS support, yet.

re Linux: I don't use Linux and don't have an extra machine to put it on. Supporting it would be tough for me, but I'd like to try someday. It looks like Game Maker Studio can only export to Ubuntu version 18.04.2 LTS 64-bit. It's not clear to me if they only support that old release or if they keep it up to date.

Hallo Ted, any news about the linux export? You can maybe put out a versione but only for Ubuntu in a BETA version. I would love to have a fireplace while i go for the lunch break.

Thanks for your amazing work, Max

Hi Iskal, I managed to make a build that supports Ubuntu :) You can find it on the Downloads page or via the Itch App.

Hello, I just added Pixel_Fireplace_Beta_v092 (Win/Mac) to the downloads which has dual-monitor support. Double-click to toggle fullscreen on/off.

Woo-hoo! Thank you! 

Hi again, I managed to make a build that supports Ubuntu :) You can find it on the Downloads page or via the Itch App. A question for you: I don't have any experience with Raspberry Pi, can it run Ubuntu? Does this version of PF work on it? I'd like to get a Pi to test out, but I don't know where to start.

Hi Ted. I'm experimenting with running it on a Raspberry pi. The main issue seems to be that the linux binaries are compiled for an x86 processor, whereas the Pi runs on ARM. For the benefit of anyone Googling, the error is 

cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

If Game Maker Studio has an option for compiling for ARM / RPi that could do it. Otherwise, I'm not certain if it'll run on the Pi. I'd be happy to help in any way I can, reach out to me at aholman using the mail service run by google.

Hi Alex, thanks a lot for trying it and letting me know. You're right about ARM. However it looks like Game Maker Studio can only make Raspberry Pi ARM builds if I physically have a RPi, and it seems I may need to purchase each RPi version I want to support. I won't be able to do it anytime soon, but it would be cool for sure. I can send you an email when I do.

Edit: I misread a thread and thought I had to buy each RPi version I want to support.
