I'm not sure if this has already been done, but here's something anyway ^_^ .
This simple dll allows you to make threated searching through the computer. Threading makes it easily possible that the entire game is not freezed when you search for a file. Though, it would be possible to make this without a dll as well, but I felt it would be much easyer to just make a dll. I don't know, but might be that a dll is also sligthly faster, but not sure though.

Download: here

The game-info contains instructions.
Well, please post what you think. Also, if you have any suggestions or found a bug or anything, please let me know.

Cool! I wouldn't have thought of that!!

Anyway, threaded DLL's are always good, 'cause GM always freezes the game with simple processes like that.
