Mac OS Preferences

The section details the Mac OS preferences tab.

For GameMaker: Studio to work with an Apple Mac, a few things need to be set up first in the preferences. Once you open this tab you will see the following sections that need to be filled in for GameMaker: Studio to be able to communicate properly with your Mac and for you to test your games:

Below these inputs is the option to Suppress build and run. If this is enabled, GameMaker: Studio will not try to build and run your game on the target Mac device, but instead simply push the files to xCode.

Next is the button labelled Check Mac Connection which you can use to test the information you have supplied to make sure that the connection to your Mac is correct and working. Please note that you must have enabled Remote Login on the target mac. This can be done by going to Preferences -> Sharing and enable Remote Login for the user you want to be able to login.

Underneath the Check Connection button there is another button marked Clear SSH Keys which is used to clear the Secure Shell Hash. This is provided as an option for those users that have changed Mac, or re-installed the OS on their current one, and need to re-configure their secure keys.

Finally you have the Default Team Id field. Here you can supply a default Apple Team Identifier which will then be used for all Mac OS builds. If you leave this blank or you wish to override this ID, you will need to supply one in the Mac OS Global Game Settings, otherwise your game will not build.
