A feature I often see requested on the GameMaker Community is the ability to import a spreadsheet from a program like Excel into an array. This makes it easier when working with large arrays, like language files, as it saves typing them up line by line in GML.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to test the new GameMaker Marketplace, a store front built into GameMaker that allows custom assets to be purchased, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.
This doesn’t mean that I’ll stop supporting my open-source projects like GM: HTML, which I’m planning to update and release as a free asset, as revenue from paid assets will mean that I can spend more time developing free ones as well.
So what does purchasing CSV Manager get you?
- Detailed Documentation: Details every step of the process that you need to go through to import a .csv or export one
- Battle-tested code without the battle: The codes already been tested for a wide variety of situations and if there is a bug I’ll fix it for you.
- Support: If you have an issue with getting the extension to work I’ll be more than happy to help
Convinced? You can go grab it right now from the Marketplace for a limited time discounted price.
