Whenever I start up Game Maker, the preferences are all reset ( Boxes unchecked, values set to 0, color code for everything is all black ). Whenever I try to check the boxes and save my changes, I'll get a warning that says:


Failed to set data for value "SoundDir".

Press OK to ignore and risk data corruption.
Press Cancel to kill the program.


I've already reported this as a bug, I was just wondering if I could get any help from the community while I wait for an answer.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Never get this error myself.

Have you tried doing a permission repair and/disk check using Disk Utility? That may be your real problem, sounds more like a permissions error than a bug to me.

Could you go a little more in depth on the process. I have no idea what to do once inside disk utility :/

Ok, so it IS a bug... :(

What version of GM are you running? You can find out by going to the Menu Bar>Game Maker>About Game Maker.

goto GM4Mac.yoyogames.com

In the bug reports section Russell, has advised people to delete the GM4Mac config files.

Might take some searching but he's mentioned it a few times.

This did the trick! Not only is everything back to normal, but deleting those files found in my .config file fixed up the text editor too :D

Thanks a million <3

(via xxskxx on the bug tracker)

ok, to fix this like I did, do these steps:

1. Press Shift-Command-G
2. Type in the box "~/.config"
3. In that directory, delete the folders Yoyo70 and Game Maker 4 Mac, and anything else referring to YoYo games and Game Maker.
4. Launch Game Maker
5. Enjoy

Hey, all,

 

This isn't working for me either. I can't find the .config folder anywhere and I don't have the files hidden. I've tried to delete the preference files, but that isn't working either. Please help!
