    Please no more requests in this topic, check out my original thread at full price now that I got the initial offer ready to go.

    -----------

    I don't have a job right now, and I'm fresh out of freelance earnings.

    As a late Father's Day present, I wanted to treat him to a < $3 drink from Wawa down the street.

    That said, it will be extra special to him if he knew I worked a lot to get to do something so little for him.

    I'm offering to make a Desktop Extension for Windows, Mac, Linux, or a combination of the three, depending on whether it can be cross-platform. I may or may not be willing to make the request depending on how much experience I have with what you need. Networking is a huge no-no.

    Anyway, I'll do it with heavy quality control, and we can set a deadline you find reasonable, and all I want to be paid is 3 stinkin' US dollars. :D

    Thanks!
    Samuel

    I suggest you change the last word in the title to "offer" instead of "request", because currently it looks like you need an extension, instead of offering to make one.

    You could call it "$3 Custom Extension Offer" or something like that.

    Edit: The tag/flair is wrong too, it's not a job offer

    I thought of doing the same, but I doubt he wants it for free:

    Well, if anyone needs an extension but can't afford the $3, I'll gladly pay on your behalf.

    I feel like this topic is becoming a meme.

    I was just called an extension pimp in a private message about this. lel

    If you could make an extension that allows game maker to write and read files outside of the working directory, you got your self 3$

    The 2.2.3 beta made that unnecessary with an option to turn off the sandbox, at least for desktop platforms. Any other ideas?

    Can you make me an extension that can allow me to do this:

    1) Game executable closes
    2) 10 seconds later, another executable opens, which is in the game's directory

    That 10 seconds is not set, it might as well be 10 minutes.

    Can be used in those creepy "exe" games.

    Are you actually going to use this? :p this is as simple as making an invisible app that calls create process on two exe's relative to settings written to a config file. This wouldn't be an extension, because it's not a dll. I guess you could call it a tool? In any case, I'll do it. But I kinda wanted to make something someone would actually need for a serious project. Could also be done with VBScript, JScript, or similar.

    Well, I've been wanting something like that for a couple years. I may or may not use it but I sure do want it! Haha.

    But I'm okay if you want to wait for someone more serious to show up. You do it when you decide you wanna.

    See, I don't get that. What's simple for you might not be simple for others. ;)

    So if you're willing to do it, drop me a message, I'll let you know how I want it to work.

    There's a chance that anti-virus applications can mark this behaviour "suspicious"

    Easy, just use the HelpMeMakeMillionDollarGame.h library

    Game installation instructions:

    1) Disable antivirus
    2) Install game
    3) Get spooked
    4) Enable antivirus, delete game and block matharoo

    @matharoo ok, sounds legit. Pop me a message with everything I need to know. :)

    @Morne @Ali Al - Mosawi since matharoo was first to take the 1-off $3 offer, I will be charging the usual, for everyone else, which will be more but I'll be reasonable.

    @Morne Ali Al Mosawi's request is a bit easier, would you be ok with me doing his request after matharoo's? Your request seems a bit complicated so I don't know if it's something I'll have the time to do, but the other two requests are super easy for me to achieve.

    I'll see what Morne says, and hopefully after matharoo's request is done I can get to yours right away. :)

    Please no more requests in this topic, check out my original thread at full price now that I got the initial offer ready to go.

    It is ok, rather help others. I do not see anyone making blockchain game integration with GMS nor GM2...so if you figure it out let me know and I will purchase your asset from the marketplace.

    Otherwise when you are done with other requests and you are sure you can do it, give me a shout out.
