What would you like to see in future updates?

I've said in the past that I'm not doing any feature update to the current extension anymore, so I can fully focus on the rewrite. However, I've changed my mind on this.

I'd be up for adding some small features to the extension every month or so. By small, I mean things that I can reasonably add in 4-5 hours of work. So that excludes big overhauls or completely new features.

What are your most wanted features?

  • Post one idea per reply

  • If possible, give an example of how you'd use the feature, so I can understand it better

  • Upvote the ideas you like the most

  • I'll prioritize the most upvoted ideas


I've already posted some suggestions I've seen, but all suggestions are welcome!

Quick note: I'm removing suggestions after they are implemented, so that I can keep track.

Heey size43! hope your doing alright. I would love a feature that would sync variables in a initial script where you can put in arguments straight away, just like in GameMaker 8.1 version :).

Would love to hear from you!

Calling gms_instance_sync_var_add before the sync call will do this. In fact, the GM8 version is implemented using that function behind the scenes.

GM:Studio doesn't support reading arbitrary variables by their name, so it's not possible to implement the GM8 way in GM:Studio.
