then you can actually debug lonewolf's stuff too :P :P :P

Hehe - i am my own worst critic, if I sense there is a bug lurking. I hold off release.

The general public do some weird shit though. You find out pretty quickly if there are bugs upon release :P

I like playing golf while children are being beheaded in Syria, does that make me a donkey?


Well, that is the democrat animal. But I prefer the term ass.

I like assigning healthcare to screw the whole nation over while not effecting myself or the government itself, does that make me an ass?


No. It means you're on something.

Can we please leave irrelevent politics shit out of my topic? k' thanks! ;) :P

Yes don't get me started either, Bush created the drone program. Clinton signed Glass-Steagall deregulating the banks, Bush expanded Housing and Urban Development giving poor people homes they can't afford, both crashed the economy, and Obama hasn't done anything to fix it.

Agreeing with everything you just said. We've never really had a "good" president since Abraham Lincoln. Whether Republishit or Democrap.

Back on topic. My browser extension's crashing problem when calling BrowserDestroy() is finally fixed. Whoop whoop. ;D

Instead of destroying the window, it now just hides it. When a new BrowserCreate is called the window reappears with the new url. When the browser is hidden it is also disabled, meaning if you play a YouTube video and "hide" the browser in the middle of the video playing, the audio will stop, giving the end user the impression the control is actually destroyed. This won't lag games because when the browser is hidden it's nothing more than 1 small disabled window running in the background (no webpage still open).

I discovered YYG was forcing that crash intentionally. They think it's "malicious" to use GM for DestroyWindow() calls. Or at least it could be used for something bad. I think.

PS the browser is forced to legitimately close at game end automatically, which does work.

TKG, oh wow that's funny, they think someone will hide the window and create a new virus one or something lol. Newsflash, they can still do it with create window, and it's not something they couldn't just do in C++ without GM. I can guarantee you it would work with ENIGMA.

And it did, when I was still working on that version that crashed with GMS it didn't do that with ENIGMA when I tested the same code and everything.

Edit.

That's not all, for the same reasons they've sandboxed GMS's file system if you haven't heard already.

Search "File System Limits" in their docs - http://docs.yoyogames.com/

TKG, I am aware of the built-in limits, but are you saying that you literally can't even get out of that sandbox with extensions, like, at all?

No you can still break it with extensions. My bad. That's not what I meant.

TKG, I believe there is a reason why they hold on to the money for 60 days.  They use PayPal right ? They might have funds on hold for a certain period, and also to protect against dispute/chargebacks, but perhaps other internal reasons, sending bulk payments instead.

Still an accounts receivable though.  IF you deal with most affiliate programs online where you earn, (from legit sources that is) that's about the time you wait.

and BTW, lonewolff's video plugin sold well because his product was HIGH DEMAND.  As far as music and sounds, that is harder due to competitiveness and the availability of many samples online and there is other reasons as well due to the "demographics" of GM (lone knows what I'm talking about :D)

Keep in mind TKG you have other venues to sell your products, the YYG market place might not be the best place. :D at least not for this category :D
