So I made an ANSI main menu and am simply trying to get the menu
commands to populate where I want them, and with light bar controls.
It's not happening, and I'm wondering if it's possible without a mod?
No mod(s) needed.
When I try to load a .ans or .asc from the message header option, it literally just displays the file name instead of the ANSI when the main menu commands are displayed.
Without |DF it is plain text you will get -> super flexible !!
In addition, I wanted to reduce the clutter of the main menu, and
created a new menu with "like" functions relating to email and chat.
All works fine. However, when I try the menu type options within /s: "Standard" everything works fine.
Yes, start with a basic menu, 4 items, 2 per column and try to get it working.
If I use "Light Bar / Promp" everything works fine but the options scroll at the prompt,
This is according to the specifications ......, from the wiki:
Searchlight-style. The menu options can be scrolled through at the prompt location by using the arrow keys or typing in hotkeys to jump quickly to a selection.
Light bar Matrix, the screen goes black and crashes to DOS.
This one requires more configuration, from the wiki:
Allows you to define the jumps between menu options based on the user's
input. It is more complicated to set up but allows for more intricate control over how menu input behaves. The Up, Down, Left, Right, Home, Escape, Tab, PageUp, PageDown, and End fields can link to a command ID found in the menu. When the user presses one of the keys while the command option is selected, Mystic will jump to the command ID defined for that key. A series of menu commands can also be defined for each specific key press, and will be
executed prior to jumping to the defined command ID.
Any tips/suggestions/clarity would be appreciated.
