The title says it all, since GMS is no longer being updated, and their LIBPNG in the newest release appears to be 4 years old I'm looking to update it, because my program needs this else in reality it simply wont function. So I've got the newest version and updating isnt an option and down grading wont fix the particular issue i have. I must update the libpng by hand, the files for this are located here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libpng/ Although updating is where i have issues. No documentation could be found in my efforts. So if anyone knows how to do this I would be ever grateful.
