Game State/Menu Manager II

Well, I have done another vid to show what it can do at the moment, you can take a look here. The vid shows the same effects as before but also menu and menu item transitions and the menu cursor that (if implemented) can be moved by the game pad or the keyboard. Also instead of just having hard coded keys/ game pad buttons to navigate the system you can specify your own so you have full control over the flow and navigation control of the system.

It's a little it better quality to so you can see the effects a little more clearly.

Here is a list of some of the things you can do at present:-

Font (menu Item) Effects:
  • Textured
  • Refracted Texture
  • Bumped Texture
  • Bloom
Menu Item Transitions:
  • Opacity Blend
  • Instant (no transition effect)
  • Drag Up
  • Drag Down
  • Drag Left
  • Drag Up with Opacity Blend
  • Drag Down with Opacity Blend
  • Drag Left with Opacity Blend
  • Drag Right with Opacity Blend
  • Slide Up
  • Slide Down
  • Slide Left
  • Slide Right
Menu Effects:
  • Colored Edge Glow
  • Refraction
  • Bumped
  • Ripple
  • Colored Smoke
  • Bloom
Menu Transition Effects:
  • Same as Menu Item Effects.
With any luck you will be able to see these effects in action in the new movie.
