Giavapps File (developed and produced by Luigi Piscopo) 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 Buffers.
Giavapps File works exclusively on Windows and Mac OS X.
Starting from version GameMaker Studio v18.104.22.1686 there is an option for disabling the file system sandbox restrictions:
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!
