Trying to add chat system

Posted by NickPerson
Hey so I wanted to add a Chatting system to my game, but I felt like it would be better to ask a good way to do it instead of mashing code together until it worked, can I get a good explanation of how it works and such? :)

Hi, you can use the built in chat system to get something up and running quickly. See gms_chat_toggle and gms_chat_bind_view/gms_chat_bind_room for that.

From there you can later build custom UI and functionality by using (among others) the gms_chat_get_* family of functions as well as gms_chat.
