Status: Redundant

This feature has already been implemented, or is already achievable with existing methods.
I would like to be able to change a client's Dream Dameon game title during the game.

I would make use of this feature to alert a player in a round-based game that it is their turn or that a round has begun.
winset(client, "default", "title=\"New Title Here!\")

That works, changes the title bar of the default window.
Probably be better off using some sort of noise to alert people that it is their turn.

Some people would rather listen to their own music instead of a game's music.
There was a topic a while ago that showed how to make the window flash as if it was an MSN window receiving a message.
I wish I could find that thread, as that is a very valuable tool and I'd definitely want to see a library of it.

A short beeping sound to alert somebody that it is their turn should not interfere much with external music.

A feature request - to favorite any form of thread or topic for later reference.

winset(src, "MainWindow", "flash=-1") // Flash undefinitely.
Thanks! (:
