You can save the files directly to the “datafiles” folder in your project folder and add these as “Included files” in GMS. When replacing files you just save over the files with the converter tool, no need to include the files again in GMS.
Using the imported data is quite straightforward since data structures (ds_grids, ds_maps and ds_lists), are created when using my scripts. The only scripts you should need to edit to your liking are “create_tile_layers” and “create_objects”. You can also entirely skip using those two scripts and use the data structures however you like.
Data structure documentation
I created a PDF that should describe all the data structures created by my scripts. Read it here: ttbc-gms-data-structures.pdf
Below you can download the GameMaker Studio scripts and example and the Tiled map I used for the demo.
