A downloadable extension for Windows
This extension gives GameMaker games a custom window caption+border that act like a native one.
That includes the minimize/maximize buttons, moving/resizing the window, common (and less common) keyboard and mouse shortcuts, and even the window shadow and rounded borders on Windows 11.
Having a custom border+caption subsequently allows for a few things:
- Toggling window border on demand
- Supporting exclusive fullscreen, borderless fullscreen, and windowed modes.
(which more and more players expect from you as time goes on)
- Not freezing the application while the user is dragging the window around.
(essential for competitive online games)
- Customizing the title bar and/or border.
(now that it's game code that's drawing them)
The extension is easy to use, highly customizable (change sprites, add buttons, or even replace chunks of drawing logic), and thoroughly documented.
In order to download this extension you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $19.95 USD. You will get access to the following files:
