I'm assuming it's server-plugins generating these messages right now, but I'm not totally sure (maybe its something that can be done w/o a server plugin?). I'm guessing that sourcemod will eventually have a system to display a message in a little window in the top left (or wherever depending on how flexible the system is) as well. My main concern is that I play at 1600x1200, and these messages always get cutoff. It's like they don't scale properly up to that resolution. Of course, I don't play at the lower resolutions so maybe my assumption that these messages work at lower resolutions is incorrect. Maybe its even the correct behavior (although I donít see why it would cut a message off with no way for me to see it). I just want the sourcemod devs to be aware of this issue, and perhaps be able to correct the problem before it becomes one.

there is a limit on the number of characters I believe so if you make it too long it will cut off, as far as I remmeber I thought it was a engine restriction and not an admin plugin one.

i currently have my messages posting in the top left corner, but would like to move them into the chat menu to make them easier to see in the server. does anyone know the cfg line for this?
