Chat:gms_chat without the username in start

Posted by krishiv768
I want to implement broadcast system in my game.
I tried using gms_chat but it shows my username on start at the message
I also tried using gms_chat_local but it is just local.It removes my username.

What I'm trying to do(chatlog):
{get_string thingy happens,i use "do stuff"}
[broadcast]do stuff

What is happening(chatlog):
{get_string thingy happens,i use "do stuff"}
Me:[broadcast]do stuff

One way to achieve this is to have the broadcast messages not use the default chat system, but send a P2P message that you add to the chat manually using gms_chat_local. Assuming you've got a constant (macro) p2p_broadcast defined, that has a value between 0-255, you can use:
// To send a broadcast
for(var i = 0; i < gms_other_count(); i++)
    var pID = gms_other_find(i);
    gms_p2p_send(p2p_broadcast, pID, "Broadcast message")
// In the p2p_receive script:
gms_chat_local(ds_list_find_value(argument2, 0), c_black)
