Default Show Server Messages While Chat is Disabled.

It drew my attention that server messages don't show while one has the chat disabled, which does have its reasoning since it appears in the chat box but the whole point of disabling the chat is just to not allow you to chat with others and see what others say, not put apart server messages.

A few examples:

None of the commands written in the console appear in the chat box.



Rating progress not shown either.

Ideally server messages should be separated from chat (displayed elsewhere). This way they would not get lost in all the chat spam.

It's pretty much the same concept as in Source games where you can print any text you want with a specific configuration (trigger on event, server join, etc). I'm quite confident that this is not hard to do with Altitude.

Example can be seen at the top of the image, chat box being at the bottom left.

Another problem is it is more difficult to record games for modes that use server chats. For example I have coded a Dodgeball mode where the server announces when a player gets eliminated. I use capturemode feature to record, but this hides chats, including server chat.
