I sometimes had the problem, that i knew the id of a message that seemed to be suited for the event I need to detect, but I didn't know the name of the message. Sometimes you get a result if you do a text search with the id on the cinema resource folder. But many messages are not defined with a long value, but by a 4 char value.
If you need to search them:
Take the id, convert it to hex, take each byte and convert it to char ( see www.unicode.org ) and search for that string in the resource folder.
Example: id 1835755116 -> 6D 6B 66 6C -> m k f l -> search for 'mkfl' ->BFM_MARKFORCELAYOUT
