Tired of the same old windows? Want to use your own custom image to create your menus and user interfaces?
 
This plugin allows you to assign images to your windows and use them as the window backgrounds. It also allows you to remove the window
frame so that all the player will see is your custom image.


Being able to decorate your window is important, as windows can be dynamically created and animated.


For example, if you had a window that slides in from the side of the screen, you would want the window images to follow the window.
 
Images are drawn under the contents of the window, so text and other images drawn on the window will be displayed above the image.
This plugin supports any window, as long as you add them to the supplied configuration file, so if you're using custom menus or custom
interfaces, you can add images to them as well.
 
Note that this plugin is not meant to change the layout of your menus, so the menu I show above will require you to first create the layout before adding the images. However, once the layout is provided, you can easily add images to create interfaces like this:

Into interfaces like this, by using pictures for the windows:

Sooooo I hate to look so far ahead but... When do you think the Layout plugin will come out? I've been dying for something like this.

I don't have an ETA on a comprehensive layout plugin that would allow you to design your entire menu by just saying "put this here, put this there, draw these things in here".


It is not difficult to say "put this window here, make it this tall and this wide", but once you get into what to draw IN those windows...different story.

Makes sense. I'll be looking forward to it regardless. In the mean time, this is still a great plugin.

If you have any particular layouts you would like you could put in a request.


I'm offering commissions for layout practice to try to find a way to build a designer out of it.
