Official (kinda): No Softwrap in Game Maker 8

There has been a lot of vocal opposition to the use of the Softwrap DRM protection of Game Maker 7.  Users have reported that the software would un-register itself, that they had problems installing Game Maker on secondary computers and of problems receiving support almost from day one – over two years ago.

Last month we predicted it would go and today Sandy said “we won’t be using Softwrap for GM8” on Twitter in response to a recently documented explanation of a customer‘s troubles.

Softwrap will not be used in Game Maker 8!

There will however “definitely be online activation”. See our look at the changes in the Game Maker 8 beta help file with regards to a 15-day period after which Game Maker will revert to the free version for a registration key to be activated.
