the message is special as well as it requires "ESC" to move out, then press "SPACE" to continue. that can be worked around though.

The message is also a holdover from the 40d days, so it's likely that it's not controllable from the new messaging systems in .31

Please post suggestions on the forum: [^]

Please discuss your 'tool' on the forums as well and keep links here for save files, etc. related to a bug.

I'm going to group this with another missing announcement report for now.

Siege announcements are sort of special in that they generate a formatted fullscreen message (actually defined in external files in the data/announcements folder) rather than a box (like feature discovery messages) - the same is true for "Diplomacy Stymied - A Diplomat has left unhappy" and the arrival of the King.
