[FREQ] Broadcast quietly.

Post by Full Bleed »

Now that we have playClip and playStream I sometimes want to send text to the chat window to accompany a sound. In these cases the "ding" that comes from a normal broadcast being sent to the chat window can step on the sound I want to use. Latest example: I'm adding a sound for when someone tries to open a locked door. I broadcast that the door is locked to the chat window and trigger a door knob wiggle sound... but the ding from the broadcast ruins the effect.

So, I'd like to be able to broadcast text quietly in specific cases without disabling all system sounds in preferences.

I'm not sure if we'd need a new quietBroadcast function to do this or if a new parameter could be added to the existing one.
