Pop-Up Broadcast Messages

Tired of sending broadcast messages from the server console that users never notice? An undocumented feature in R5 allows you to have your messages pop-up on the users client instead of just appearing in the status bar.

Try this: append (!) to the beginning of a broadcast server command.

BROADCAST "(!)The server will be down 4pm-5pm"
