File Description

This is a menu that allows you to take screenshots in EF2 without the hud showing up (i.e. no weapon, radar, health bar, crosshair, etc. showing on screen). It also allows you to toggle noclip and change the noclip speed. In the thirdperson part of the menu you can change the camera distance, vertical and horizontal displacement via sliders and toggle 3rd person on/off.

The point of the menu is to make it easier for modders to take better screenshots of their work :) !! Be sure to read the readme on how to install this! The readme also explains the menu options in a little more detail and also contains a small Help! section.

Note: Only works in SP (EF2 menu's don't seem to work properly in MP)

----------------------------------------------------
Bugs
----------------------------------------------------
No bugs as such, though I haven't beta tested it so sorry if it doesn't work out perfect. Please email me if you came across a bug
As far as I know, whatever trouble it's causing is because of EF2's limits. You are not allowed to move while any menu is being shown and so you MUST press 'Close' everytime you want to move around.


----------------------------------------------------
Installation/Activating menu
----------------------------------------------------
Extract the pk3 to your EF2/base folder
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST BIND A KEY TO OPEN THE MENU (makes life MUCH easier)
You can do that through 2 ways.
1)  Go to your EF2/base/global folder and open "autoexec.cfg" (create the file if it does not exist). CFG files can be opened and created in Notepad. Just make sure it has a ".cfg" file extension. Place the following line in there:

bind x togglemenu cleanshot_menu

Replace 'x' with the key you want and then save it. Start the game, run a map, and then press that key to activate the menu.

2)  Start the game. Open the console via '~' (tilde key, the one to the LEFT of your '1' key)
Type in the following:

bind x togglemenu cleanshot_menu

Replace 'x' with the key you want and then save it. Start the game, run a map, and then press that key to activate the menu.


----------------------------------------------------
Help!
----------------------------------------------------
Q. I've deactivated the menu, but I can't move!
A. Press the 'esc' key till the main menu comes up. The 'esc' key will close all open menus

Q. I opened the menu but now I can't get back to it!
A. Press the '~' (tilde key) to cycle between the active menu. If no other menu exists then the console will be toggled

Q. I want to make my own menu, where can I learn?
A. I'm very bad at explaining things ;) but I did my best to put comments in my menu. Open cleanshot_menu.urc in Notepad and read up all the lines that follow the "//"s. Experiment around with the different values and try and figure out things yourself if you dont understand :)
