Does anyone know a good tutorial reguarding the .menu-scripting? Also, if there is a .menu-editor or something I'd like to know.

Thanks in advance

Notepad, or some other text-editor, can be used to edit the .menu files. I'm not sure about tutorials though, I think there's one in the SDK (or at least an explanation of the .menu files)

Well, what I meant with "editor" was some kind of a program which allowed me to view the menu in a visual-mode or something... Like FrontPage if you're tried that...

I'm sure there's one of those floating around on the internet. It might be under the Quake sphere of websites since the .menus for JKA are practically the same as the ones in Quake 3.

FrontPage is the devil!

Okay, people, thanks for the help, but I think I know most of the stuff now... I'm making a menu-system for my mod, and here's a picture:

Neat. So, are you using a program or are you doing it manually?

Meh, not everything has to be hexedit l33tn3zz, Wudan. :)

Personally, after messing forever with properly aligning menu items, I'd probably be willing to try one of those menu editor things if I ever happen to see one again.
