Everybody loves GMS sandbox.We all know, what a clever move YoYo did, when restricted filesystem on Windows. Even though I can't help but dance in happiness because of this fact, sometimes I actually need full filesystem support. And so, here we go, time to kill sandbox once and for all (and for free).

My dll supports:

  • Copying and deleting files.

  • Creating and deleting directories.

  • Returning list of files or directories at given address.

  • Returning directory of executable.

  • Cyrillic and other fanceh characters.

This plugin does not work in special variable

This plugin does not work in windows environment variables like %appdata% and %localappdata%.
The plugin does not work when I use working_directory instead of %localappdata%, too.

No idea what you're talking about. I've just tested – everything works. Can you send me the code?

Well done!

If anyone wants to use Windows environment variables, I recommend this function I just found out about (which works with this extension quite nicely for me):

working_directory is also working for me. I have no complaints!

Will you please do such a smart move so I can't help myself but dance in happiness and release source code to dll?
Thanks bro!
