The Analytics Tab

This section deals with the Analytics tab of the Global Games Settings Window.

This tab permits you to add analytics to your game, permitting you to use certain third-party products to track your game and its sales or plays. There are four sub-tabs for this, one for HTML5, one for Windows Phone, one for Tizen and finally one for Windows 8.

For all available platforms you can specify whether to use Flurry Analytics or Google Analytics to track your game, unless you are targeting the Windows 8 (Native or JS) module, in which case you can only use MarkedUp Analytics . Due to the nature of these functions, you can only have one active at a time, so make sure that you check the correct one! Once you have flagged the Enable Flurry, Enable Google Analytics or Enable MarkedUp check-box for your analytics provider, you should also add the unique ID that you have been assigned into the appropriate area.

Note that support for analytics for Android and iOS is not built in to GameMaker: Studio and ticking any of the providers shown will prompt you to download the analytics as an extension which will be added to your project for use. You can find further information about this from the following Knowledge Base article: Analytics Provider Demos v1.4.

For more general information on analytics, please see the YoYo Knowledge Base.

NOTE: This functionality is limited to the Professional Version of GameMaker: Studio and will depend on the target modules that you have installed.
