A Few Suggestions

I've got a few suggestions for GameMakerServers upcoming updates :

Proper function(s) for chat bubbles. i.e. gms_chat_bubble...

More ways to customize the chat system

Dynamic image's for displaying a chosen PlayerINI / GameINI

Built-in log features (via Developer panel)

Just a couple of little suggestions I had. What do ya'll think? :)

I have a general policy of not adding any new things to the extension except for bugfixes, so that I can focus any time I have on the rewrite (2.0 was an exception, because I got a LOT of questions about the same thing). However I wouldn't be against adding some things that don't take a lot of time away from the rewrite.

Logging is probably too much work to be worthwhile. Chat bubbles should be fully implementable without any changes to the extension, so it's probably not worthwhile for me to spend time on (but if anyone feels like making a set of scripts for chat bubbles, feel free to make it & post it in the community tutorials forum).

Any suggestions in particular for customizations in the chat system?

Dynamic images for INIs are probably not too much work, I might be able to do that at some point.

While logging would be a good built in feature, you can easily log stuff if you have a good understanding on php + mysql, you can make a website that inserts the specified log message into the database from gamemaker with http_get("www.website.com/insert.php?user=specified user&message=whatever you log");
