View Full Version : .menu help

hey guys, i felt creative today so i put some work into red sushie (you may or may not have heard of it)

i've got a question about the UI callvote section and the .menu scripts

i've designed a voteable function called gameplay that can change the server's force settings, weapon dynamics and assorted other things

for example

a player can do

/callvote gameplay instagib


/callvote gameplay noForce


/callvote gameplay jkpp

or /callvote gameplay basejka

the idea is that since the ctf community i belong to is so small that servers could get more bang for their buck

but , i want to have it accessible with the ingame callvote menu, but i have no experiance coding any of the menu UI stuff

i thought i could just copy the /kick or /map sections.. and get it to display a list of the available gameplay types instead of maps or players.. but the symbols refrenced in the .menus aren't in the code! so i'm sorta at a loss on how this part works

can someone throw me a bone here ? :)

if you wanna say hello to the refresh community feel free

the red slushie forum is in the middle of the page

I can't really comment since I haven't looked at that area in a while. What's the menudef for those buttons?

Also, here's a good tutorial on menu files (http://linux.ucla.edu/~phaethon/q3tamenu/q3tamenu.html#toc16).

There is one file used by the menu code that is not in the codemp folder, but in another ui folder adjacent to it:


That file should contain the constants you seek in the .menu files, and it is the one you want to edit to add new constants.
