View Full Version : In game Window

29th Oct 2001, 12:37 PM
I guess probably everyone knows the ingame OrderMenu for Bot commands etc. What I want to know is if there is the possibility to keep a small Window in the screen all the time but witch is only accesible by mouse when you press a certain Key. Another thing that i may want to know if this somehow affects performace, i mean the smaller the HuD the better the performace but I dont't know if one can aply this rule to a windowObject.
And lastly where the heck do i have to implement the whole crap?

I believe Mongo had a workout around for this.

UWindow only draws a window if:

(bAlwaysOnScreen && Root.bQuickKeyenabled) OR bUWindowActive

but this is only done if the windowconsole is in state 'UWindow'

so you will have to find a way to render the UWindow if the console is not in that state (HUDMutator???). then the mouse and keyboard input will be ignored (unless you also add this somehow)

you should set bQuickKeyEnable to true, or else the whole menu (includining helpbar and mainmenu) will be drawn

then you just have to make sure that the UWindow you want at all times is on the root at all times and got bLeaveOnScreen set to true at all times

finally: /me hopes everything i said is correct :D
