GMUI v0.1.1 - GMS2 compatible

Hello people. I have figured out a few issues when porting over GMUI to GMS2 and resolved them to make a demo. There might be a few more lingering, but so far it seems to run alright. I've also fixed a few other bugs as well.

Go to Repo

Download EXE demo

I think I'm about at the point to wrap up on the major updates and whichever and work on some other stuff for a while (finally!). I've been updating the wiki a bit with some instructions, and I might do a few videos to demonstrate how to design with it, in case you prefer video. I think I may also make a new themed example as well to show it off a bit.

Question though: What is the preferred way to import scripts into GMS:1.4? I haven't figured that part out yet, but I may make a marketplace item soon that I think may work with 1.4 and 2.x. At least in 2.x you can drag in the folder and it will import all the scripts...

Anyway, hope you all are enjoying your summer and see y'all in the next one. Peace! lol

GMUI Beta Release v0.1

Its finally here! The first version in beta is finally out and available... after 2... years. Ah well at least its here, right?

I'll save you from the spiel I put up on other networks: basically it does a bunch of cool stuff for your UI with GM on a grid system, that makes it easier to compete with other platforms. Shout out to those who gave valuable feedback through its progress btw. Very very helpful and much appreciated!

You can check it out on GitHub
Or you can also check out the Landing page, which hasn't changed much tbh, working on improved screenshots

If you're lazy you can just download the exe directly. (lol)

I am putting together a couple of items to address right away, including testing on the new GMS2.x and other device outputs.
For those who like to follow on twitter I have a thread started here, or for Email I am starting to work on integration with aws SES for distribution of updates.

Thanks for tuning in guys! - I would add images but.... Not sure how to embed them yet... And I can't use the filemanager.... right?.

New channel and new site! [Maybe - pls help]

I need help

I am at the point where I can start building a new youtube channel and a new website for gaming backend
WEBSITE A while ago I talked about building a new website that would essentially be a steam competitor. This is of course before they had things like API's for DLC and Workshop Items.

Essentially I'd like to build something similar because it would allow for a better system to showcase inde games, but this of course is handled by Steam and GameJolt already.

Honestly, if either system has a good way to support "DLC" items, accounts in games, multiple cloud saves per user (particle systems in my case), in-game chat, hash-check security for executables, auto-updating via API, etc., then I would go with that rather than rolling my own.

WEBSITE: NAME? I've written down a name a long time ago: "GameHelium" with the tag line of something like "Taking your inde game to new levels" or something like that. But I'm unsure if thats what I should still stick with...

NEW CHANNEL I also want to start a new youtube channel. This channel would focus on a more genuine reporting of the state of tech that would generate discussion, rather than clickbait - esc articles that are written all the time. This like what microsoft, apple, google, amazon, etc are up to. Maybe a video every week or something, just because I like to talk about it but its annoying to me how many "jouralists" get their news wrong. And on youtube, sometimes there are good channels, but theres far more just unboxings, first-impressions of products, etc. Less about software and tech companies in general.

I thought up the names "TechPoint" (like checkpoint), "TechToday", and even "BetterSoftware". But I'm not sure if I like any of them.


Anyway, maybe someone could help with some opinions about this stuff. I often get caught up just trying to figure out a name haha.

Have a good day!
