- Enabled core plugin support. The new version now needs my core plugin to run. This is for ensuring future compatibility to my other plugins. The core is include inside the download for version 1.10

- Moved the font registering to the core plugin

- Fixed a bug that didn't apply default name settings

- Fixed a bug that might crash the game when a map got deleted

- Names can now have a unique vertical offset for each event

- Moved the icon location into the img/shownames_icons folder to avoid inflating the img/system folder too much. Please make sure to move your icon files to the new folder after the update.

This is so cool! Can you please make it so we can show icons from iconset as a "image" for "show sign"?
