For almost a year now I have maintained the GameMaker: HTML Extension, I’m very excited to say that it is now available from the GameMaker Marketplace under “GMH: Canvas Companion”.
Wait a second, does this now mean that it costs money? Nope! As promised I have kept the original extension 100% free and the source code is still available on GitHub if you are into that sort of thing.
Now one of the things I commonly get asked is can I use this extension to add a textbox into my webpage? Well unfortunately, due to the way how GameMaker works internally, this isn’t currently possible. However I’m going to look into the possibility of unhooking/hooking GameMaker from input next time I update Canvas Companion.
