[An extension for GameMaker Studio 2]

This extension is recommended to advanced users only.

"Window Ext" is an affordable and open source Windows extension made exclusively for GameMaker Studio 2. With this extension, you may manipulate the properties of existing windows, or create new windows by running external programs.

Import the example project to create a custom window title bar, as shown in the video. This will require you to tick the "Borderless Window" checkbox under Windows Game Options. Download the free demo EXE to see a preview of this.

Documentation is available at the "Support" link, at the top of this page. After visiting the link, you should see the YoYoGames forum topic for this asset. In the original post, you can access a spoiler, within which you can read the documentation.

Click the "Contact Publisher" link, at the top of this page, if you have any questions, or need help using this extension. I often reply within a few days or so, depending on what's going on in my life.
