Forlix DeadChat (2009/07)

This addon for SourceMod on a CS:S server allows dead players and spectators to chat with the living players. Messages are relayed to the living upon occurence of a player_say event, so no hidden admin messages, messages of muted users, or similar things that would not normally be visible in chat will ever be exposed. The relayed messages are exactly identical to the standard and the clients language is taken into account (unlike some already availalable plugins offering deadchat). Actually, they are the standard messages, as the plugin triggers the localized phrases on the client, rather than trying to format the messages itself.
