GML Input System
A downloadable tool for Windows and macOS
This input framework allows for a great number of things that you probably expected Game Maker to have. You might think you don't need this but the code base for this extension is about 2,000 lines.
- Players can be assigned devices/bindings
- Easily replace the Game Maker input system using input_check* functions
- Limitless bindings and easy removal of bindings (on the fly changes)
- Can be used with non-action/player based control schemes as well
- Automatically controls device connection/disconnection
- Handles axis input for you with convenient functions
- Input buffering allows you to send inputs that are automatically checked for within the input_check* functions
- Gamepads and keyboard/mouse are natively supported within this system and require no extra work
- Provides an example project that shows how to do everything
(Latest extension version is uploaded regularly, the example is not)
