GMC-Reddit/r/gamemaker/ Quick GML Reference
A downloadable project for Windows
This TamperMonkey/GreaseMonkey Script will allow you to access YoyoGame's Help File by pressing Shift+F1 while a function is selected on the web page or in the Post Box.
Shift+F1 Starts GMS:1's Help System
Shift+F2 Starts GMS:2's Help System
I got tired of copying and pasting functions and launching the online help by hand while composing replies on the forum. This makes it a lot easier.
The code works on the GMC forum and on reddit/r/gamemaker.
Please report any issues here or on our web site!
added includes to support old gmc forum site
added includes to support actual help system site though I recomend you get https://yellowafterlife.itch.io/gamemaker-manual-h... for a better help experience
changed the url generation to start the entire help system using the ?page= feature of the help system
changed the help url to use http and not the https so that if you use yellowafterlife's system you wont need to change the include
added a sorted array of descriptions, url to perform the search on as opposed to the flat array that only held the urls, resulting in cleaner search
changed the search to binary search
added find closest match for the search for example Intro will find Introduction, Int will find Int32
Added Second File for GMS:2 help system. Use Shift+F2
re-wrote both files to prevent interferences between the 2
renamed the original studio 1 file. ples remove the original file(s) from tampermonkey as the name changed
Tested on firefox
Changed Shift+F2 for Studio 2 Help to Ctrl+F1 due to firefox's use of shift+F2
