I'm posting this here because I know a lot of people could find it very useful when looking for DLLs and such. Ever since the pinned DLL list was removed from the GMC I wanted a place to browse through for different DLLs.

So I recently comprised a database of pretty much every GM DLL and Extension ever released to the GMC (at least the ones in the DLL and Extension sub-forums), around 200 in total. I also catagorised them into several different areas for easy browsing. Additionally, there is also a real-time live search that you can tap a word such as "physics" into it and be offered "GMphysics" for example.

You can find this here:

http://www.gmtoolbox.com/

I hope you find it useful in your ever-long search for DLLs and Extensions.

(Mods I know you will likely delete this, but I feel this is the best place to post it. I guess it's down to you lot anyway)

No way. This is very useful. It may be moved eventually, it may not. Decisions take time sometimes.

Nothing you made is actually on that site. All it does is link to topics posted here. If you don't want your projects listed on that site, remove them from the forums.

I really don't care. Maybe some time in the future I want to remove a DLL for various reasons. (making it an extension, just want to get rid of it, etc...)

If they're still in this page, I'm going to constantly get messages asking for download links. I really also just don't like people linking to my stuff, but I guess I can't force you to take that down.

When I discontinue a DLL, I'll contact you to remove it.

If you simply update the topic with the relevant information, anyone who happens upon your projects through this site should have no reason to contact you since all the information about the "discontinued" project will be there.

Maybe I just want to delete the whole topic? Jeez, man, just drop it. I don't want my stuff being linked to by some random GM site. Move on.

Now, I would normally agree with you if the site actually directly linked to anything that was yours, whether it be an actual download link or a website you created about a project. But in this case they're all links to posts you made on a forum that is not owned or operated by yourself (excuse the pun). The posts, therefore, do not belong to you (even though the content, in most senses, does) and demanding that they be removed (rather than politely requesting in a PM sent to creator of the site) isn't fair. Also, by having those links removed, you would be making it more difficult for people to find your creations. These forums aren't as well categorized as the website is and using a search engine often requires some trial and error with the search terms. Demanding that they be removed on the basis that you might one day to decide to have them removed (why?) in order to avoid PMs from people looking for download links just seems selfish.

Jeez, man, just drop it.


By posting it here instead of sending a PM, you've allowed anyone to comment on or argue with things you have said, whether or not it was directed at them. Additionally, by posting such a confrontational reply, it has become my business to prevent a conflict between you and some other user. I pointed out that you shouldn't be making a demand like that and even tried to give a suggestion to solve your problems with the site. It's really okay if you don't want topics that you've created linked to, but you need a better way to express that than with an impolite demand.

Wow. Treated! :GM7: Lol.

OpticalLiam, I think this is a very handy resource, and I don't see anything wrong with linking to GMC topics. I'm sure many users will appreciate this, and the site looks nice and simple. Very nice job!

Roach, if you wanted me to remove links to your stuff then you could have just PM'ed me and I would have taken them down. Though I think it would be an extreme shame to remove them, as you are pretty much the most active DLL developer we have, producing some of the most useful DLLs there are.

That said, if you still wish for me to remove them, then just send me a PM or just reply here if you must.

Thank you everyone for the positive comments. Also, thanks Yourself for defending me here, I agree entirely with your points and well put as always might I add.

Cheers.

Wow pretty nice site Optical. Roach, I know you discontinued Cryptor but I have it and am using it. But by your argument I should delete it and never look back. 3 words: Not Gonna Happen. If you really want THAT much control over your DLL's then don't release them although it would be a shame because you're a great asset in that regard.

I overreacted, and for that I apologize. I'm so used to telling people to get my files off their own host, I jumped to conclusions here. Please keep them on your site. It's a great tool for finding Extending Game Maker creations! :whistle: I'll keep in touch with you if I discontinue any of my DLLs and such. It will save your site a broken link, and me a bunch of e-mails.

antidote - You're understanding of what I'm trying to say is wrong. Put yourself in my point of view. I don't want to answer an onslaught of e-mails demanding support and download links for DLLs and things that I have discontinued. For example, it would annoy me if you messaged me asking a list of questions about my Crytpor DLL. I hope you can now better understand.

That would be great, thanks. I will be trying my best to maintain and update the database whenever I have chance to.

This is very useful and the design is sweet and simple. But I would look into making the fonts for each category smaller.

Very nice, I'm bookmarking it.

Also, would you consider adding GML scripts too? There are scripts with very useful functions around :rolleyes:
