A very interesting initiative indeed from YoYo! They are almost giving away the milk and the cow with this deal :) I am guessing that GMS2 will be announced within the next couple of months with some sort of upgrade path, and this deal will generate a whole lot of potential upgraders? For me, $12 for all this plus a second license is a no brainer.

 

I will be interested in examining the code from Spelunky and Stealth Bastard in particular. I am surprised the devs were willing to share their code. Btw, what is the licensing of it, as it is presumably only for learning purposes?

 

There is an article on Gamasutra at the moment about unscrupulous Chinese developers that literally are ripping the code out of commercial Android games and replacing the graphics before releasing it as their own game. Similarly Jim Sterling has covered many of the Unity asset store scams going on in Greenlight at the moment. Hope that people only use this stuff for learning purposes, but I can't help but think it will be abused and 20 Super Crate Box clones will appear on Greenlight in the next month!

I've used Game Maker when it was GM6 back in 2008, then GM7, GM8. When windows 8 has arrived I've quit on it due to compatibility issues and I can't afford the professional edition of GM:Studio. And now, honestly, I'll be making games with Game Maker again because of this.

 

Thank you way beyond much Yoyo Games  :lol:

If you want to activate your GMS go to buy now and add the redem code that you received from Humble and then paste it you will find GMS Pro $0.00 click on process and buy it you want the android module do the same thing again but paste the redem code of the android module , Android Export Module $0.00 and click process.

I'm very pleased with and excited about the bundle being offered. Thanks a lot for doing this.

 

However, it seems that most people are unable to redeem the product keys or download modules due to server overload.
I understand you're aware of that.

 

It's not really any of my business, but I wanted to try to help with a suggestion.
It seems you're using AWS. Not sure exactly how the servers are set up or if you have the database seperate from the server.
But it would seem a solution may be to add elastic load balancing to help handle the high demand that will be going on for (I imagine) weeks at minimum.

I see. That's unfortunate.

Could I ask what database you're using now? Is it running directly within the instance? RDS? You can't scale the computing/memory resources?

I really have no idea how many hits/requests you're getting, but I feel like AWS should be able to handle it if provisioned correctly.
If it's all in an EC2 instance, that might be a problem unless you can go into maintenance and migrate the database into something that's scalable...

That damn 2 step authentication is the one screwing me now...

While usually useful (if everything works and the server isn't flooded), it is now the reason why i cant login on the standalone gamemaker, I know the server is getting and processing my login data because my email is full of those 2 step authentication codes you get when you try to login, but it is failing to show me the input window for that code.

IS there a way to disable it temporarily so when put my email and password and i press login, it just logs?

I have a question... (omg tsuka asks a question)

 

Are we allowed to re-sell or gift the GM:S Pro/Android module part of the bundle to someone else? I'm interested in trying a couple of the games in the bundle, but I don't want a GM:S license to go to waste.

 

 

Apart from that, great bundle! Now we just need Mike to drop a feckin strawberry milkshake on the servers so they stop overheating and giving everyone trouble registering their shiny new copy of GM:S...

(Edit: Never mind, milkshakes ninja-confirmed.)

When you buy the bundle you are given keys to redeem. You can give those keys to anyone you want as long as they haven't been claimed. Once claimed they belong to the claimee exclusively. :thumbsup:

This is a SCAM!!

 

I bought this yesterday and have spent the last 15 hours trying to make a stupid account I don't really want, just because you are too lazy to give out steam keys.

 

FIFTEEN HOURS trying to make an account and it not working and it telling me I had the wrong phone number over 30x which is BS as I know my number and I typed it correctly

 

This is a SCAM and I'm contacting Humble Bundle for a refund and to report it.

You don't know what you're talking about.  Calm down and play some games.  You're redemption codes will still work when the flood subsides.  Wow.

I can assure you the codes will still work (for years even) after the bundle is over. We're just experiencing a lot of issues due to the traffic pressure from the bundle. We're working on it as hard as we can!

Hey, hey, calm down, have you put your country's number first? Like for example Portugal: 0035 xxx xxx xxx ??

But yeah, i think if the servers are expected to be down for a while, maybe they should just give steam keys instead.

And I'm not trying to be rude, but...

You'd think with all the money that's rolling in, they'd consider it an emergency situation and contact someone who knows what they're doing - because it shouldn't take this long to scale the servers properly. It's not going to go away tomorrow or the next day, especially with more sales every second.

The situation is more complex than scaling servers unfortunately. We're doing everything we can. In the meantime the codes are not going to expire and you will recieve everything you purchased.

Is this only for the Pro license? I tried putting my android code here and it says that the code is invalid.

I'm also curious as to why, when I recovered my licenses after purchasing and adding the module to my account, it doesn't say I have the mac export anymore. I purchased Studio back when it came included and I even have a previous license recovery email showing that I had it. It shows that I own Pro, Mac export and Tizen export. But the new email I received just shows the Pro, Tizen export and the Android export. Any idea what that's about?

So here's my issue, maybe someone at Yoyo can help...

 

I purchased the $12 bundle, and I already own a GM:S Pro license through Steam. I HATE having to be connected to Steam every time I want to launch GM:S so I thought this would be a great way to be able to run standalone.

 

I got my key and successfully redeemed it, but only the Steam license appears in my list of licenses. I tried redeeming the code again thinking something went wrong (since the servers are so bogged-down ATM) and it just says that the voucher has already been redeemed :(

 

So now I'm still stuck with only the Steam license, and it appears the standalone license I got through the bundle is lost (if I would have known that I would have NOT redeemed it and given the code to a friend instead of wasting it). What should I do?

A few people have had this issue and we are aware of it. If you have this specific issue with codes appearing as 'already redeemed' please make a ticket at http://help.yoyogames.com/homewith as much info as possible. It's possible that some of these issues will resolve themselves but its hard to know at this point in time.

 

I understand that it's very concerning to you to see your code suggested as "already redeemed" but try not to worry too much, we're working hard on this to get everybody sorted and I'm sure these problems will get resolved.

and I can't even load at the moment because of the problem with the servers

Sorry to moan but feel totally ripped off. I wish I went unity now

I would have purchase the new version but they can kiss my arse now. I feel like a right mug paying full price and can't even use it at the moment

Sales happen, we literally get people saying this every time YoYo has a sale or does something nice for the community.

Also, at hippyman, you are activating this wrong. Go to help.yoyogames.com and read the big new flashy article for details on how to activate these humble codes.

I get what you saying but paying $800 vs someone paying $12 is massive a difference and can't even use it because of it, I have a right to be upset. As I said won't have anything to do with company in future.

That's your right, you are correct. Though I feel your decision is hasty and not well thought out.
YoYo has had influxes of new users before, but they have never used a platform like the Humble Bundle to cause the influx.
I don't think they realised just how popular GameMaker would be on the Bundle.

You shouldn't distance yourself from a company for something that isn't their fault.
They have thousands, maybe more, people trying to send requests to their database all at once. I'm surprised there isn't news about YoYo Towers being in flames right now!

Now, I'm not going to say that everything YoYo has ever done is amazing, and kiss the ground that they walk on, but these are very kind and hard working people. We have the head developers here telling people to be calm, and I'm sure a scramble of people trying to sort out the issues back at HQ.

It'll get sorted.

That's fine dude I understand your point of view

However I have launch a Paypal dispute to get my money back anyway on the basis I have a product that does not work and felt mislead buying this rubbish.

However I knew quite a few people who were looking buying gamemaker but I warn to stay clear and look into construct for their needs I wish I had brought that instead for my web games and unity for windows games.

I suppose we all learn by our mistakes

First time I ever post on these forums but this deal is a very good reason to start doing so! I own GM Studio Pro already but I still bought the bundle as all the extra stuff is very well worth it! Great job Yoyo and hopefully this will bring a ton of new creative developers to this community.

Unfortunately this has temporarily resulted in me not being able to work on my projects for now but I hope these issues will be sorted soon enough.
