Windows XP

Visionaire Studio (Player and Editor) needs the runtime library for Visual Studio 2012. This can be missing on older windows installations and must be installed manually: http://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=30679

Windows 10

Visionaire Studio published games currently require you to right click on the game executable & set the compatibility mode for a previous version of windows, such as: Windows XP, 7 or 8. This is just a temporary solution & should be fixed in a future update of Visionaire Studio.

Publish on Steam

  • Once your game has been added to steam, you should promptly receive instructions from them, detailing how to use the steam wrapper. After the steam wrapper has been included, you should then be allowed to use the Steam API commands with Visionaire. https://www.steampowered.com/steamworks/FAQ.php


Here are the steam API commands for Visionaire (accessible via Lua script):
