    Is it possible for the yoyo game's developers to add MD6 encryption into gamemaker studio 2 alike the usage of md5_string_utf8(string)??? I want this feature added because MD5 is a good and robust encryption but it has been around for a long while and there are a lot of wordlists for MD5, that are very easy to get a hold of.

    MD5 is not good nor robust for encryption. Right now the built in and better alternative is sha1, there are a few functions to for files and strings.

    Just to ensure we're all talking about the same (and correct) topic:

    MD5 is not encryption. It is a cryptographic hashing algorithm.
    SHA1 is also not encryption.

    Those two are very different concepts, so ensure to reflect this once you file a proper suggestion.
