But then my stupid sister dropped my laptop done the stairs.  That was about 2 months ago, and I got a new laptop running OSX because my parents hate Windows (while I love it).  I was looking through a flashdrive with my stuff from my old laptop on it and I found the game I was working on.  I thought about using wine to run game maker so I could finish it.  Once I had it up and I tried playing the part of my game I had finished I gave me this message:

This is not a Wine error message.  This is coming from Gamemaker or the program it created.  Does this program require the installation of Microsoft Visual Basic or .NET runtime libraries?  They may not be installed properly.

Your problem may have another source and that is the 'broken' X11 that is supplied by Apple.  The MacOSXForge's XQuartz project is working on fixing this and expect to release a version of XQuartz soon with a fix.
