ENIGMA could use a good XML extension, all it needs to do is wrap the methods and objects from Rapid XML which is used in my Command Line Interface

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

I'm sorry, but I'm not very experienced with Enigma development.

Rapid XML is a cross-platform XML reader, pretty much the standard because of its light weight and efficiency. I used it to build a CLI, a CLI lets you build games from a terminal like command prompt without LateralGM or any IDE. Rapid XML is used to load the GMX format. Someone could write an XML extension for ENIGMA that uses Rapid XML and it would be available on all platforms because we use Rapid XML on all platforms for the CLI. It can't be much clearer than that.

Basically there is no way to read XML right now without doing it manually with string functions. There is a ready made C++ code that can do this, but someone needs to make as an extension to ENIGMA for people to be able to use it.
