Giavapps File


Giavapps File (for GMS 1.4 and GMS 2)

Giavapps File (developed and produced by Luigi PiscopoHe is the same developer of the Giavapps Windows API, Giavapps MIDI, Giavapps ProAudio, Giavapps CC and Giavapps 3D extensions for GameMaker: Studio!) provides a set of non-sandboxed and cross-platform File functions for GameMaker Studio and GameMaker Studio 2.

This Extension includes support for reading and writing Text Files and Buffersfile_bin_* functions are old, slow and deprecated: for binary reading and writing you should definitely use Buffers instead..

Giavapps File works exclusively on Windows and Mac OS X.

Starting from version GameMaker Studio v2.2.3.436 there is an option for disabling the file system sandbox restrictions:

  • Under Options > Windows / macOS / Ubuntu > General.
  • Check Disable file system sandbox.

In this way, you can save/load files from anywhere not protected by the OS/other security software.

Due to these changes, Giavapps File extension is now free!
