Hello all, I am developing an FPS game with the FPS Creator X9 Engine with Black Ice Mod support. I have been developing this game for over a year now but I am not ready to reveal the title yet until I release a trailer. I have used the engine's limitations to my advantage and have been successful. I even have a publisher considering my game. But, I have ran into two walls. My first wall is I want my game menu to have a GUI Options menu so the people who play my game can adjust visual settings.

Here is the best example of what I am looking for:

The options menu was made by a Russian man named Nikita Koshelev. While his Patreon is still active, trying to contact him gives me a 404 error and he hasn't uploaded anything in 3 years. He doesn't even offer the options menu or how to do it on patreon. He does reference GUI-X9 but is that even active anymore? Does GUI-X9 have an options menu or a tutorial for one? I did see some people on here recommend Vishnu Packer but does that for sure offer an options menu that is similar to the one presented above? I hope someone can provide a clear answer on this since people like adjusting options for their game.

My other wall I've ran into is lack of a console command menu in FPS Creator. As far as I can tell, no progress has been made on this feat. I couldn't find anyone who's done this. I want a console command menu like in Quake 2 for example for my fps creator game but I don't know how to put something like that into my game.

I love this engine and I hope y'all can help me out with all of this. Looking forward to the responses.

P.S. The options menu is a bigger priority than the console commands menu.

i remember someone put a script for the options menu over at the FPSC discord server, you can ask around there, now about the developer console like quake 2, i'm afraid that's not possible without modifying the engine itself
taking a break from fpsc for now

Thanks for the responses. It helped out. I will let you know if that post you linked to works out for me ncmako. If nothing works, I can always go on the fpsc discord.
