Hello All,
I was wondering if you could help me out, I want to change the menus for a Total Conversion I am making with EF1. Any chance you folks know how to do this or basically, how to create a menu?

Thanks in advanced!

Well if you want to make a new menu completely then you'll have to go messing around with the source code, unfortunately I don't know much about that. I suggest you talk to HorckDude. If you just want to change the menus that are in the game you can use notepad to edit the .dat files in the ext_data folder in the pak0.pk3 - pak3.pk3 files in your BaseEF folder (e.g. You can change sp_turbolift.dat to change the buttons in the turbolift menu).

Edit -> I just remembered that I wrote a small tutorial on how to edit the turbolift menu here.

You have to use C++ to alter the source don't you? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.
