So I made a bit of an extension that allows (non-Flash) projects to open an "open file" or "save file" dialog. It's still a very early version, but you can download it here, or view on GitHub.

Please note that this requires the lime.ui.FileDialog library, which I believe was only added in one of the betas for Stencyl 3.5.

Example usage:



(Note that that is probably not a good title for the dialog...)

I'll add more information as the extension progresses.

I like the dialog title :) Keeping an eye on this. I'm coming to the realization I need to make my own level editor. I was just thinking about how I'd solve this problem, so this extension has great timing!

I found the class needed to do this just this morning, and spent maybe 3 or 4 hours throughout the day figuring out how each part works and then implementing it in blocks. It went way more smoothly than I'm accustomed to it being when I try to figure out a random API :P Obviously though with just a couple hours of work it's not very advanced, and may still have a few bugs or kinks, so please use carefully for now...
