Main Menu

EDIT: The background is now working, but if anyone could explain to me why the menu isn't showing up I'd love you.


Thanks in advance!

RE: Main Menu BG

Try renaming the map to only menu_bg.map

RE: Main Menu BG

I can't change the map name to menu_bg.map because the main Amnesia game's background.map is named exactly that. I have my background map saved under main_menu/main/ if that helps.

RE: Main Menu BG

If you are using a fully isolated FC nothing of this should really be a problem. I would suggest making a Fully isolated FC it's a bit tricky to make it work but ones you fix it's alot better for both you and the players that want to play the FC

RE: Main Menu BG

I'll be honest I tried to make a fully isolated FC, yet it just wouldn't work. It would keep crashing when I started up the .bat, yet I did everything in the tutorial (although changing some names to fit the story)

I'll try on making a Fully Isolated one now though, I'll post back when everything's done.

RE: Main Menu BG

I would guess it was the resource.cfg that messed with you

I already made the start background map thing, followed different tutorials and everything seems perfect. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated. If you need me to post anything else just ask and I'll do it ASAP.

Thanks in advance!

RE: Main Menu BG

Thank you! The background is working now, just there's no main menu or graphics options. I think it has something to do with my menu.cfg file or something.

EDIT: Yeah Jessehmusic I just did and it works now, just the main menu has gone AWOL. Just started scripting and whatnot a week ago.

RE: Main Menu

I'd really like to have this issue addressed, as I can't continue without a menu.

All menu text is displayed either in english.lang or in base_english.lang. If your mod can't find a copy of these files, it won't display any text.
