How to add a Startup Message when launched

Question

How can I add a startup message, so that when a player joins the server or plays the wad, it displays across their screen?
Sorta like this:

Except made for .WAD format.
The WAD also requires skulltag to run, if that helps.

It looks like it's probably just an ENTER script written with ACS that does HudMessage.

You could use either print or hudmessage, with hudmessage being the more versatile option, where can you can also use a specific font and fontcolor.

 

A simple example with hudmessage

font_LIB.7z


Thanks, your examples were a good outline, but it still took me an hour and a half of fiddling around with it to fix it.
Here's the code for anyone he wants to use an outline.

[SCRIPT START]
#include "zcommon.acs"
 

script 923 ENTER CLIENTSIDE
{
    int OpenGL = GetCVar("vid_renderer");
    if(OpenGL == 0)
    {
        SetFont("DOOMFONT");
        hudmessage(s:"\cgNOTICE!\cf: \cc THIS MOD RUNS BEST IN \cgOPENGL!\n\n",
                   s:"\ccYou can report feedback for our Beta in our discord server at: \cghttps://discord.gg/rusVESy\n\n";
                   HUDMSG_FADEINOUT | HUDMSG_LOG, 0, CR_RED, 1.5, 0.5, 6.0, 2.0, 2.0);
    }
}
