Creates a hint dialog with the given title and text.

If no title is defined, then the confirmation popup only shows the hint message, and the simulation stops, until the Continue button is clicked, or Esc or Space is pressed. If a title is defined, then first a confirmation popup shows, with the text of the title. The simulation continues, and the player can move freely. Once Esc is pressed, the confirmation dialog disappears, and a regular hint message is shown, with the title in the first line, and the hint message preceded by a bullet point.

In regular text, \n will create a line break. In structured text, <br/> has to be used.
