This isn't a GM Creation, but it's close. We need another Mac subforum for all the dylibs and tools like this.

GM Launcher is an alternative launcher for Game Maker for Mac. You click on it and it automatically launches Game Maker for Mac. Click on it again and it will launch more than one instance of Game Maker for Mac, letting you work on various projects at once.

GM Launcher is very straightforward. You can use it to launch Game Maker for the first time, or click on it again to launch more copies of Game Maker. GM Launcher opens up a Terminal app, runs what it needs, and then closes both the terminal app and itself, leaving only Game Maker open. It features a nice and clean icon so it's dock friendly and ready to use. In this way, you can replace Game Maker with this in the Dock if you want, or you can use it as needed. It's up to you.

Upon the first launch, GM Launcher V2 will ask you to locate the Game Maker app for it. After that, it will launch Game Maker automatically.

Download Here

Installation instructions and requirements:


Works on any computer that can run Game Maker for Mac. GML Reset simply resets GM Launcher's settings. If in doubt, open the help file (located inside the .dmg you download).

Hope it's useful to somebody.

GM Launcher is open source software. You can find the source at www.gmacorg.sourceforge.net

The inability to open multiple windows in GM for Mac was quite annoying, and I used to have two copies of Game Maker so I could run it twice. I definitely think this will come in handy for some people.

I wish that you can select the file through a subfolder as well. Otherwise this would be good.

That's coming in a future version, along with the source code.
