Technical Questions

Q: What are the minimum requirements for Gamestar Mechanic?
A: To access Gamestar Mechanic, you will need
  • A high speed Internet connection (e.g. DSL, Cable Modem)
  • The Gamestar Mechanic App, available for Windows and Mac
Q: Does Gamestar Mechanic support Chromebooks?
A. In January of 2021, most major web browsers ceased to support Adobe Flash, a web technology used by Gamestar. We have accomodated this transition by providing a native app for Windows and Mac that is capable of securely running the legacy Flash content. Unfortunately, this approach does not work for Chromebooks. E-Line is hard at work designing and building our next generation of game making products and services, which will include solutions that support Chromebooks. For information and updates, please consider joining our E-Line Media Insiders email list.

A: In most environments, you should not need to change your firewall settings to use Gamestar Mechanic.
