Screenshots:

Commands:
  • sm_annotate <time> <message> - Creates an annotation that lasts for a specified time (-1 for infinite) (Flag: Chat)
  • sm_deleteannotation - Deletes the annotation where you're looking (Flag: Chat)
Cvars:
  • sm_annotate_version - Version
  • sm_annotate_min_dist - Sets the minimum distance that an annotation must be from another annotation (default: 64)
