Sound Alarm when it's your turn

It could be so much more comfortable when I don't want to enslave myself to a speed game...

Someone could do this with a userscript such as the bob script if there's enough of a demand.

I use this one:

Tell Me When Notifier by Fantius
Sits in your Windows system tray and tells you when it's your turn
http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9004

I searched my computer for sound files, found one I liked and told this program to use it when it's my turn. Wonderful program.

Click on the link in the first post.


And anyway, about the topic. Agreed if it wouldn't be a compulsory thingy because I wouldn't want to use it. And I think it has a very low priority.

Not sure why there's voting on this ...

Good UI design and usability guidance would say that this is either a user preference set for all games or per game.

A checkbox in the game "[] Sound alarm when it's my turn" would solve it for everyone.

You should write here. It's the suggestion forum! :D Lackattack comes here and reads what we suggest and decides if he wants to add it to his "to-do" list or not.
