OK might have just finally noticed why no messages are working. at the top it no longer gives the complete version on your first line. I changed it so now it states "version 1.05."
I noticed that it was only "version 1.0"
whether or not my new format for the server restart messages will work i don't know yet but will keep you updated. if it works i will reply with the format i used if anyone would like to use it as well.
How did you get on with this?
