3 questions:

1) do you need to change the json files in order to get it to work?
2) the blacksmith scene in the demo, when going there, it has a black
background, possible to get it transparant? and are those also "choices"
to open the shop for example?

3) the choices that has started 0, is that the center of the screen?

keep up the nice work :)

1) .json files it's alternative way to define visual choices, require from plugin user some little knowledge in coding to add items in that way. In Demo project, one menu I made with plugin parameters and two in .json for examples. Editing .json files is more faster way for me then open and close again and again plugin parameters. So, I kept this way to edit to users too. If someone don't understand how .json works he can use plugin parameters like always
2) Yes. This black background - not settings part. I just show picture in event before open visual choices, it's all
3) What you mean? You can open menu above player, any event, or in any point (by coordinates) on screen. Each group have own offset, each visual choice item can have own start and end coordinates (for animate open and close moving)

looking deeper, choices was 0, 0, but onEvent -1 curent event, but the json
files are a bit complicated, so I need to study that part, but when changing
the menu like the blacksmith, does it become transparant through parameters?
or a way to set it transparant? if image is smaller than resolution size?

Hi there! Just a quick note to say I bought the pro version a little while ago and that even I, who cannot program at all in JS, was able to get this plugin working great after reading the guide and watching the promo video a few times.
Honestly, it took me longer to make the buttons than to implement them in the plugin. Really great work here!

You can set extra offset for any menu group not depended where menu anchor is (event, screen or player)
And you can change open \ close animation opacity rate, to change menu items transparency (or make them opaque)
I hope I understand your question right about transparent :hswt:

if those opacity is for the buttons, than yes, the black background on this image:
Untitled-1.png
that to opacity 0%, so you can see the map on the background.
otherwise, I might be able to make something on screen resolution.
but it seems those buttons are also choices to open with scriptcalls.

but it might I aim more for the choices in the circle one to set up,
if this one can be through params too, I look later deeper when I got more
time.

if there is a way to make it transparant, than would love it or a simple line I can add
in order to to do so :)

EDIT: when using a space "BLACKSMITH" -> "BLACK SMITH" the SMITH is on the 2nd line,
are spaces a new line for header?

Hi @Pheonix KageDesu -- is there a new pro version? I just got a yellow alert on the Console window. If so, what's the best way to update the plugin?

Thank you!

What's your favorite dessert? I'll eat any pastry with cinnamon and sugar, but especially churros. And then there's chocolate... omg, so good!
