Before 4.0, when a server crashed, or closed the place that held the map in the interface would turn to a huge white text box, and errors would show up, rather you got booted/banned, the DS had a fatel error, or if the server Crashed/closed.
In this case the server crashed, so normally you would get "Connection Failed" (simple enough right), but with 4.0 the screen goes black, fine, I go check the new Message/options box, and that just says "Loading Skin". Let me ask you, what does Loading skin have to do with a crashed server(it sounds like It's a Byond problem, not a server problem)?
I rather like the new remote commands, but I think it would be better to have the messages in the map section of the interface, like they were. Also please fix the messages, I don't know how it displays other messages as, but aparently atleast some of the messages are wrong(it took me like 5 minutes talking to the Admin of the game, to find out it was just a server crash).
