Completion Log

Here I will move any suggestions that have been implemented into BRPG (once they are tested and confirmed working).

This will NOT be a comprehensive list of new features.

This thread is here merely to prevent people from wondering why a suggestion disappeared from one of the other threads.

I will also post the final results of old polls here, since I will have to reset the polls every time a bunch of suggestions are implemented.

    The limitation still applies to all other files though.
