Hint messages

When a building is touched, a hint message can be shown describing the function of the building. These messages are defined in scripts/hintmessages.txt.

Message creation

The max length of a message is 256 characters. Format: %k{<bind name>} for bind evaluations, e.g.: %k{+use} evaluates to E in default config. Do NOT use % in the text itself. Touchmessages can be deactivated via emp_cl_show_hints.
