GZIP utils


You must be logged in to obtain assets


GZIP_utils is a set of utility scripts providing access to ZIP, GZIP and TAR file formats without requiring any external library (everything is written in GML). Moreover, you can also create zip and gzip files without even having an actual file on the filesystem by using the contents of a buffer instead.

Important: Due to the unavailability of specific GMS2 functions, the GMS1 version does not include the creation of zip and gzip files.

This asset has been tested on the Mac and Windows export modules and is not compatible with HTML5 and javascript based modules.


  • Create GZIP and ZIP archives from file or buffer data
  • Decompress GZIP files and expand TAR archives
  • Read ZIP and GZIP format metadata
  • No external library required




My assets: FormLESS (UI framework), GMGL (autoupdater & launcher), Autotiles Helper (auto tiling system), Jade UI (UI sprites), GMSDB (database system), ExINV (inventory system)
