This is a small dll which implements the Allegro api into Game Maker, it does not however follow the function names or schemes as it should. It currently creates a second window for Game Maker games/programs, allowing for things such as mini-maps, and data screens in a second windows without the need to use mplay, file i/o or data synchronization.

[Download] Example, GEX, DLL...

alleg_dll_init() defines functions
alleg_init() begins allegro and creates 2nd window
alleg_draw_update() updates screen content (of second window)
alleg_exit() closes window and cleans up
alleg_dll_exit() frees dll

alleg_draw_fill_color()
...

alleg_sprite_add
...


Development was halted as of April 2007. This was my first dll, and at its state, it was a test to see if anyone was interested, before continuing development. To better do it now, I would rewrite it, to wrap the allegro commands individually. This is of little use to anyone now, with better alternatives like xtreme3d. If you really desire the binaries/source/addons for some reason I have not addressed; email me.

hi, there are a lot of "error defining external source" when i start the game, but
i put all the files in the same directory. The game starts correctly anyway and
it shows the image.

I hope to see also the new release of the c++ converter ;)

After noticing novaz's coment about missing external sources, is there anything that one may need before using this dll?

I remember a dll I downloaded not long ago, yet required that I download some .Net package or something from Microsoft (I dont do well with remembering what these things are or do), and so I think that this may be a similar situation.

Pretty useless if it can only do things that GM can do already without it.

I have broken my vow to never post again... It is not the members which annoy/annoyed me...

Here is your link. There will be no updates but I will give the (probably ugly) source to any who wants it.
