I know there's no Linux download... but sometimes you can run .EXE games through Wine., so I took a chance this time.

The game/tool seems to run smoothly just fine without any problems until the moment I've started creating a story, made 2 objects and click on one of them. Then the game closes and shows me this:

___________________________________________
############################################################################################
FATAL ERROR in Vertex Shader compilation
ShaderName: sh_pencil_only memory:67:22: error: syntax error, unexpected NEW_IDENTIFIER at gml_Script_load_to_sketchpad
############################################################################################
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
stack frame is
gml_Script_load_to_sketchpad (line -1)
gml_Object_sketchpad_Draw_0

I don't know if it is fixable. It is understandable if it is too much to deal with, but in the hopes of it being a trivial I'm super stoked to make sok-stories too!

try installing this driver:

Hmm, I tried, but things did not change.

I've added an installer as a file. If you run it, it will install the necessary drivers and should fix the issue for all Game Maker games in the future. Let me know if it works!

I'm really grateful for trying to help me. I'm sorry to say that I can't get it to work though, even with the installer. There is some sort of error when trying to install the driver, whether or not  through your installer or the driver you linked. The game starts and runs just as described earlier. I've tried fixing the DirectX drivers through winetricks as well but that did not seem to do a difference...

I'm a Linux user and I generally assume things will work 100% with wine, thanks for this thread.

(Sokpop I'd love a Linux build if at all possible <3)
