    This is definately something I can get behind, will this support or planned support for battle party members and enemies? I want to emulate in battle dialogue relevant to the circumstances faced like receiving damage, beginning attacks etc.

    @Skurge This plugin can definitely be extended to battle party members, and enemies, I'll add that to my todo list for the next update. I had one more iteration in mind for this plugin anyways, as I Intended to add support for icons on the popup messages.

    Sounds great, I'd defiantely like to use this plugin for overworld conversations between NPC's like classic RPG's did.
    A bit more amusing than having only one dialouge window open if not freezing time and space aswell.

    Especially fun for combat, it'd be great to see enemies complaining about having a bruise that's going to last a week or missing a tooth prior a date.

    @ct_bolt, I have never used these plugins, in fact, I've never heard of any of them till now ^^; which shouldn't be shocking since I write my own plugins/scripts for just about everything, the only time I use other peoples plugins is when I'm working on it as a commission( and it's allowed by the original author ), or in a collaboration project.

    This plugin is very simple, as stated in the title, it's not meant to be anything too fancy, however, that being said I do have several ideas in mind for future features, I guess I might as well share them all while I'm talking about it. ^^

    • Show variables.
    • Show gold.
    • Show icon.
    • Show item name.
    • Show actor name.
    • Show weapon/armor names.
    • Display a message with windowskin( similar to how the default message system works ).
    • Display a message with a custom background.
    With that being said, I guess this plugin will not contain any special features that make it stand apart, I don't have any intention of adding features like italic, bold, underlined, or outline color/transparency, etc. However if it's something that gets requested, I may be inclined to add some( or all ) of them. However, my plugin does seem to offer one feature which the others do not seem to have( at least from reading their feature lists ), and that's a sound effect that plays when a popup is displayed. It's a simple feature, but it's something I guess.

    Also, I'll be straight forward about how I release public plugins/scripts, basically, when I write a plugin for my own personal use, I write it with the intention to release it publicly for everyone to use, so if I release a plugin that's similar to someone else, it's purely coincidental. I have no intention of imitating or copying something someone else made, it's just something I needed at the time. ^^;

    With that being said, expect several plugins from me in the coming month, as I'll be releasing a couple smaller plugins, as well as some larger ones( if time is on my side ). Also on that note, just because I wrote the plugin for my own personal use, does not mean that I'm going to ignore requests, if someone requests something that is simple to add, or something that could be useful, or something that is widely requested, I'm definitely open to adding in extra features, so don't hesitate to share any idea's you have for improving any plugins I write! :D

    Also thanks for the compliment brother, I appreciate it, I hope that you'll find the plugin useful.~

    Thanks for the positive feedback everyone! ^^
    Also @Eliaquim, the plugin currently does not have this feature, but that's definitely something that should exist. I'll be sure to add it when I get a chance! :D
