Script menu customization (?)
« on: April 24, 2018, 07:59:23 PM »
I'm not sure how to word this other than wanting more characters in the menu script line.

In an indie map that I'm working on, I have scripted a shop using the menu script. The problem that I have with it, is there's not much room for typing. My menu consists of a long line of scripting, and it doesn't help that I've put the scripts that are executed when selecting the item all in folders in folders. This makes the script line longer and have less room to type.

So I guess that what I'm saying is it would be cool to either have:

- Longer line for coding in the menu
- Maybe introducing a new menu that is made for scripting shops, like a "Shop menu"
- Having the ability to customize menus.

This is just a small problem/idea that can be fixed just by using actual shops, but I prefer the menu shop
Look at you being all cool!

Is this on PC? On PC there shouldn't be any limit.

This is on PC. I was using the Menu script to make a shop this way, and as I was coding it, I seemed to have ran out of room. I think it will still let me type, but when I go to use the menu, it doesn't include the whole thing. If you want me to, I can send you a world of this as an example, or try to type out the whole code on here.

Are you refering to the 255 character limit?

Oh I don't know how many characters there are. I just know that for me, it's not unlimited

When you make menu scripts, it kinda just stops adding more options after a lot of characters

You could make a root menu with options for other menus.

Yeah, I do that. But even doing that doesn't allow many options for the first menu because of the lengthy title of the script, and it's also in a folder.

Since no one will know your script names,  perhaps shorten them.  I did this to be able to add more menu options. Here's an example;  In stead of  [teleportscripts/castlelobby], [tps/cstlby]. This will save you a lot of character space. Hope it helps.

That is a great idea, and it would help a lot. I'll give it a shot, see what I can do.
