I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm quite new here.

I installed LGM and opened it up. It was working perfectly when I thought about making a simple game. I made an empty room and started looking for the run button. I looked for a long time. It was nowhere. Not even in the taskbar.

I checked some snapshots of LGM and I found out that it is only the problem with my PC. However, some snapshots also didn't have a run button
Any help wit this would be appreciated.

are you running on LINUX or Windows?

if you are on Windows, double-clicking on the icon should be enough to start up ENIGMA.

If you are using LINUX and you double-click on the lateral GM icon, it will only startup the IDE without the compiler, which seems to your case. You should have a file named '' in your 'ENIGMA-DEV' directory. This you need to make executable by right-click once, then left-click 'Properties'. From there you go to the 'Permissions' tab, and make sure the 'run as Executable' check box is ticked.

Afterwards you double click and run the '' script and when LGM should now have the green button present.

Or if you are experiencing this problem on Windows, it sounds like you could have downloaded the LGM IDE without actually downloading ENIGMA itself, and if that is the case, I recommend downloading and installing the Portable executable from the download page linked to at the top of this site.
