Having it in the same location as the GMK only works for DLL files.
Where does the .gex file have to be to make it work, and what must its filename be?
Currently I have it in the same directory as the .gmk under the filename Message System 1.2, but that's a completely different location to Game Maker if that means anything.
I would love to test it and give you feedback; if it does everything it says it does then it's exactly what I want, so I'm looking forward to it
To install an extension, open Game Maker and click on Resources -> Select Extension Packages. From the Extension Packages window, click the "Install" button, then "Install" again on the next window. Navigate to where you saved the GEX, double-click the file (or click it once and click on "Open"), and then it will be installed.
You'll be taken back to the Install Extension Packages window. Scroll through the list to make sure the GEX is in there, and if it is click "OK". Click "OK" again on the next window, too.
Than, when you want to use the extension in your game, open the Extension Packages window again (Resources -> Select Extension Packages), click on the extension you want listed under Available Packages, and than click the blue arrow that appears to add said extension into your game.
And that's how you install an extension.
As for LIBs, they simply go into the LIB folder of your Game Maker install location.
