GameMaker Studio version 1.2.1214 was just released, and with it comes an offer to upgrade to the Standard edition free of charge. Valued at $50, GameMaker Studio Standard is a significant improvement upon the free version of the software which imposes harsh restrictions on the resources that developers can make use of.
Additionally, developers can use their free Standard edition license to upgrade to the Professional edition for only $50 more. It’s likely that this is a time-limited offer, so if you’re using the free version of GameMaker Studio be sure to act quickly
The option to upgrade to Standard is displayed after starting GameMaker Studio. Make sure you have updated to version 1.2.1214 of GameMaker Studio. As the update is part of the beta updates channel, you may need to right click the GameMaker icon in your system tray and select the correct updates channel.

Thank you very much =D
Thanks, worked properly :3
Additionally, developers can use their free Standard edition license to upgrade to the Professional edition for only $50 more.
Nope, can't confirm this, don't get that offer. There's a popup telling me to update to professional now, but it says $99.99 :/
you have to add to cart the professional edition and then put your license code to upgrade.
thanks, couldnt update to version you mentioned , after updating to beta it worked
You are my hero, I probable would have missed it if you didn't inform us. Thanks.
Also random fact: Hotline Miami and Spelunky were made with Game Maker. So It's not a childrens software, you can create great games with it.
Just downloaded and I can't see any options, not sure if it's the right version or how to update to beta.
if you've successfully installed it, run it, right click on its icon in taskbar below and choose Beta channel
Awesome thanks for sharing this!
Thanks! I just got my license.
Wow, thanks for the headsup, haven't used game maker in years.
This is freaking awesome, got my licence. Thank you very very much "Deepwolf" for posting this, you are great.
Excellent, thanks for the heads up!
Much thanks :D worked! Needed to update to 1.2.1220 instead of 1214...
TY for the heads up on that one.
Wind waker <3 HD < /3
bumping cuz it is awesome
I didn't receive the e-mail with my registration code ;~;
When I used a plus address, I didn't either. But I then tried the same email without a plus, and that worked, so at least the initial registration isn't a one-time deal and you can try again.
I'm dumb, I didn't understand this "plus" thing ;~;
Click the link. He's talking about subaddressing.
I did click the link, and I still don't understand...
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, i never added any subadress tag to it, so how do i remove the plus from it if i didnt even know there was a plus in the first place? x.x
If you did not add + then you don't have to remove it. You should edit your post and remove the address, before some spam bot gets it.
ok then '~'
There must be another problem with my email
also, what address? lol
It took a couple of hours for mine to come in my inbox
Oh! my bad...
I thought it was an automatic thing :P
Use the serial key from this promotion on the free edition of NON-STEAM GameMaker: Studio:http://www.yoyogames.com/developers/promotions/tizen-game-drive/apply
You'll activate GameMaker:Studio Professional for free.
Ah I just came here to share that bit of information. It took about an hour and a half after I subscribed to the Tizen mailing list to get my new key. But! It definitely states I have the professional edition now. :D
Thanks a lot for posting :) Does it apply to the standard edition from the promo in OP though?
Wow! Too bad I haven't received my key yet... hope that promo lasts long.
EDIT: Woo got it! Thanks!
Hey, I just wanted to make sure I thanked you for this before I got some sleep. It worked just as you said! Thanks a lot man :)
Thanks a lot. I got the e-mail and will try the code when I get home.
I got GameMaker: Studio Professional (Tizen), but I don't know where to activate it. :P In Help/Update License it doesn't work as a Primary License or in Modules. I tried to submit my Standard Edition key as the Primary and Tizen in Modules, but that doesn't work either. Anybody?
Nevermind, it worked under primary license... eventually. ;)
Where is this "primary license" found? I am unable to find it.
EDIT: nvm...finally figured it out
Awesome, thanks for the update, now to install those SDKs and get cracking. Checked out the options looks like a golden way to get GM Pro for free. Thanks.
Wish I could rate this thread and both the OP and you up for this.
You deserve a cookie. Thanks a lot for posting this, I can really get some use out of this. :D
Thank you very much kind sir! You made me save 100 dollars! :)
You have my many thanks!
Thanks a lot!
Worked just fine. :)
Awesome, thanks! the promotion is still on!
This is wonderful! Thanks so much for posting this!
