Game Maker File Dropper Extension

Game Maker File Dropper extension allows you to drag and drop files and folders right into your game windows, which is very useful in cases. (I think dragging and dropping profile picture for your game is practical right? or a better one is simply doing it for loading the game with another’s savefile), It supports

  1. It’s not as urgent because the guy I made this for initially didn’t request it, but I’ve decided to add support for Linux next, and possibly even HTML5. I just wanted to let everyone who views this page know this so they can stay tuned for more target platform support! 🙂

  2. For the record, I’m very tempted to make it free even after I add macOS support, as I doubt selling it any higher than $1.99 USD will allow for that many sales, and I can’t imagine that many people buying it regardless. I’ll let everyone know what my final decision is, I just need a week or less to finish the macOS version to decide.
