Great extension by a great developer
This extension does exactly what it says, and it's much, much better than the built-in INI file system. Why this isn't standard in GMS, I have no idea - it really should be.
It's also as easy as it can possibly be to replace with your existing INI functionality (bear in mind that since this supports multiple files, you will need to store each opened file in its own variable and then use that going forward)
YellowAfterlife has shown fantastic support - when I conctacted him with a small bug relating to UTF-8 encoding he fixed it right away, and he also added a feature at my request that was quite frankly unnecessary and just a personal preference of mine (adding a flag to choose whether or not to add quotes to keys and values) - but he did it, and fast.
Great value for the money, and by a great developer. Worth every penny. Should be standard in GMS!
