    Hey there,

    My game being pixel-based means that the default gauges look pretty out of place in comparison. I'd love a plugin where I can import custom pictures instead to be used as gauges in regular menu scenes.

    Thanks in advance!,

    By gauges, do you mean Main Menu ones or the ones in the battle HUD? Either way, have tried Moghunter's plugins?

    @IAmJakeSauvage Ah, ok. Moghunter's Main Menu plugins does gauges too, but it pretty much reworks ALL of the Main Menu, not just the gauges, as a early, non-up-to-date screenshot of my game shows.

    Are you able to import custom images for the gauges? Monogatari is known to be pretty buggy but I'll give it a try if it allows custom assets.

    EDIT: I also really like the way you did it for your game! Good job.

    @IAmJakeSauvage Thanks, but again this screenshot is out-of-date- People said the bright green grid pattern was a bit hard on the eyes and made stuff hard to read, so I changed it to look like this now.

    Mog provides the bases for everything, so all you have to do is edit them in your favorite art program that allows transparency as you see fit.

    I definitely like the new color story better! I'll try out Monogatari and see - does it allow you to have custom menu options though (like journal, stat allocation etc)?

    @IAmJakeSauvage If you use Yanfly's Main Menu Manager plugin, yes, but things get a little wild after adding two more menus beyond the default amount of menu options.

    Also, any scene that you add that doesnt belong to the mog menu series will just have the default mv look. The unique buttons and look only applies to the default menu scenes such as item, skills and so forth.
