[REL]Tip Window

Yo yo,

Here's my tip window script.

It's basically a window that moves up from the bottom right of your screen every 60 seconds containing a random tip specified by you.

SERVER:

msgs = { 
    "Message 1", 
    "Message 2", 
    "Message 3", 
    "Message 4" 
} 
  
function getRandomTip() 
    local text = msgs[math.random(1, #msgs)] 
    triggerClientEvent("startHint", root, text) 
end 
setTimer(getRandomTip, 60000, 0) 

CLIENT:

  
sX, sY = guiGetScreenSize() 
  
  
height = 1 --Starting height 
maxHeight = 1.2 
alpha = 0.65 
noticeSound = false 
noticeSoundID = 45 
  
  
--VARIABLES YOU SHOULDN'T CHANGE 
moveWindowForward = false 
secondHeight = 0 
-------------------------------- 
  
  
tipWnd = guiCreateWindow(sX/1.22, sY/height,227,181,"Information",false) 
guiWindowSetMovable(tipWnd,false) 
guiWindowSetSizable(tipWnd,false) 
guiSetAlpha(tipWnd, alpha) 
tipLabel = guiCreateLabel(9,26,216,144,"",false,tipWnd) 
guiSetVisible(tipWnd, false) 
  
  
addEvent("startHint", true) 
addEventHandler("startHint", root, 
function(text) 
    guiSetText(tipLabel, text) 
    moveWindowForward = true 
    tipWindowVisible(true) 
    if noticeSound then 
        playSoundFrontEnd(noticeSoundID) 
    end 
end) 
  
function tipWindowVisible(state) 
    guiSetVisible(tipWnd, state) 
end 
  
addEventHandler("onClientPreRender", root, 
function() 
    if isTimer(backTimer) then return end 
     
    if moveWindowForward then 
        if height < maxHeight then 
            height = height + 0.004 
        end 
        if height >= maxHeight then 
            moveWindowForward = false 
                 
            backTimer = setTimer( 
            function()  
             
                function moveItBack() 
                    if moveWindowForward == false then 
                        if height >= 1 then 
                            height = height - 0.004 
                        end 
                        if height <= 1 then 
                            tipWindowVisible(false) 
                            removeEventHandler("onClientPreRender", root, moveItBack) 
                        end 
                    end 
                end 
                addEventHandler("onClientPreRender", root, moveItBack) 
                 
             end, 9000, 1) 
        end 
    end 
    guiSetPosition(tipWnd, sX/1.22, sY/height, false) 
end) 
  

In the end... It should look like this:

Good idea, but I'd add more graphics to it. Use some dxDrawRectangle-stuff and make some setting-options in which you can set the colors. This way a lot more people will download and use it, since they can make it look like they want to.
