Example

Create a resource manager in OMain:

/// @desc Create event
resourceManager = new BBMOD_ResourceManager();

/// @desc Clean Up event
resourceManager.destroy();

/// @desc Async - Image Loaded event
resourceManager.async_image_loaded_update(async_load);

/// @desc Async - Save/Load event
resourceManager.async_save_load_update(async_load);

Use the resource manager in another object to load its model or just retrieve a reference to it, if it is already loaded.

/// @desc Create event
model = OMain.resourceManager.load("Data/Model.bbmod");

/// @desc Clean Up event
// Free the reference. This is not necessary if you do not want to unload the
// model when all instances are destroyed. It will always be unloaded when the
// resource manager is destroyed.
model.free();

/// @desc Draw event
matrix_set(matrix_world, matrix_build(x, y, z, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1));
model.render();
