While nopt sure aabout menu-ing, i can do the launcher, with all cool new features...... Now, as you might have noticed, most of the mods For ja have their own launchers, some of them even replacing the original one. Some launchers have a massive size, and consist of hundreds of executables, which makes it inefficient, unfancy and slow-ish. Some of them are much smaller, some dont even go up to a megabyte.
With our installer i decided to compromise with the number of options, and the size and usefulness of it, so that it
a) Intergrates with the in- game particular menus
b) Creates the setup that YOU choose ingame (eg. the dismemberment, strength of force, and various others)
c) Looks good (Yeaaaaah...... i KNOW it makes the launcher larger, but hey- thats what we all want, is it not?)
d) In return, allows to reduce size of menus inside the game (Which has its positive side)
And finally e) Makes the whole mod united, with all different SW eras and diferent characters
Also, you may want to know about different forms, new- look buttons, fonts, tabs, backgrounds- but these are just details, that cover the big sweet of launcher in fancy big Wrap of user interface...... (Wow. I can be poetic, indeed.)
Ok, if you didnt read anything of above, or are just tired of my chatter, here are some screenies:

Great menu there, and ev, i oike also the way you explain that making a large launcher, has its good sides because it reduces lots of menus.

Ok, in the next dev, il try to show many things such as maps models menus etc.

Maybe the webiste thing, could you make a middle title on top saying tales of the sith lord and when you clikc on it it brnings you to the website?

And for the special options i maybe got something for sidious if possible. Maybe a lightning color change, so you can choose the color of your lighting?

for revan maybe a lightsaber choice since we dont really get to see his true lightsaber.

il think about more options.

hm, lightning would have to be archived into the pk3, so we'll just have to make several pictures and place them into the base folder.
Also, im planning to do a button in the menu ingame "Intergrate with launcher" Which basically activates the settings.
Should work wink

ok, i made an option for the lightning, now i must think how to make it work, lol tongue
BtW, do we have effect makers? Because i think i'll have to see the lightning pk3-s first, so i can make them selectable.
