Hi everyone i have follow the instruction of the official github page https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/GameMaker-Games and i can run the script , but when im going to install it , it appears this message
tar (child): MalditaCastilla.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
and i dont know how to fix it, please help
It looks like the site which hosts the games downloaded by the GameMaker games has changed and the installation fails because of the missing files. It looks like the hosting site has some sort of browser check and doesn't allow the automatic download attempted by the script.
We'll see how we can fix that.

Sounds about right. When Id asked them originally about it they wanted people to get it from their site so we never included it in the setup script. Which in my mind doesn't make sense since the only people who would play these games come from our community but I digress.
@herb_fargus I see. I was going to modify the Wiki script to send a browser User-Agent with the
wgetdownload command, but in this case I better not.
@pyterj Unfortunately it seems the download site doesn't allow direct download of the games, so you'll have to find a way to install them yourself. Sorry about that - as @herb_fargus said, there is a reason this script is not included in RetroPie proper and we can't get around that.
