A downloadable tool for Windows
GMTogether is a tool that introduces online multiplayer support into a large variety of games made with GameMaker: Studio and GameMaker Studio 2.
It is low-bandwidth, low-latency, unbiased, and is all-around the closest you can get to automagically adding online multiplayer to a game. In a way, the ultimate successor to my online multiplayer mods.
If you are willing to spare $3 or more, you get a small set of goodies:
- A pair of Steam keys for the Steam build of GMT.
This version is by all means identical to the regular build (which is added as free/demo on this same page), but it can use Steam P2P services to save you from having to port-forward - instead you host a lobby and invite a friend to it.
If a game uses Steam API, GMT will seamlessly use the game's API integration. If a game does not use Steam API, GMT will use its own App ID.
... actually that's it for now. The eventual intent is to have a small bundle of various 2P mini-games and prototypes that I worked on over years, but, you know - one thing at a time.
Reminder: The non-Steam version is freely available for download under "demo" section on this same page.
In order to download this tool you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $3 USD. Your purchase comes with a Steam key. You will get access to the following files:
