When I click on Goga's Free DBP Plugin it takes me to the Logarithm Plugin. Oh and nice thread.

Do not ask what the forums can do ask what you can do for the forums.

GameDeveloper, make your own games with a drag-and-drop interface. Basically t3dgm+fpsc editor combined.

I've fixed the link to Goga's free DBP Plugin and i've added the link to the free version of EZ Rotate.

Thanks so far!

EDIT:
I've also added a link to IanM's matrix1util plugin collection which has a pack of 16 plugins apparently. The second link I've added is for an Xbox 360 controller plugin.

okay, added links to the window skinning and multisync plugins. Those two UFO and LD52

@UFO:

I have the plugin, so I'll upload it and link to it from this thread. I actually have quite a few plugins that have disappeared over time, so i'll see about them and linking to them all from here.

EDIT:
I've changed the link to the XML plugin, it links to where i've uploaded it. I've also uploaded 3 other plugins:
- Grass Plugin
- MS Access Database Plugin
- BMP Font Plugin

Those three are plugins i've found on my computer, but not on the forums.

Your plugin collection is in the list already.

It says 'Matrix1Util Plugin Collection' and the comment next to it says 'Great collection of Matrix1 Plugins from IanM'.

I can link to the individual plugins you made, like the Utility and array plugins.

@DB user 2006+:
Okay, i've added them to the bottom of the list. I've also added a link to your great (and free) GUI plugin. I personally think it deserves a place in the list.

[Edit]
when I get some time, i'll sort the list into alphabetical order so that will be easier to find a plugin in the list. Its growing pretty fast now.

[Edit 2]
I've added Gamecrypt to the list now.

Sweet.

Thanks about the GUI Plugin too.

GameCrypt is a great plugin, very easy, and enjoyable to use.

Good luck with the alphabetical order thing, I personally hate sorting things, i'm very unnorganized (As any one who see's my C++ source code can tell, lol).

Cool about the new plugins.

I don't know if it really counts, but if you added a "Plugin Development" section, then added PurePlugin, and the Dev-C++ DBP Plugin Template, that'd be cool. Just a thought though.

Edit
Also, here's another plugin: dbFuncts plugin.
