Hi there folks.

I was willing to do some simple UI in my games, specially for menus and show text messages, anyone knows how to do it?

check out my platformer starter kit.

If you are one of the lazy ones heres how i did it without plugins ages ago =

1. Add a simple sprite to your layout. NOT a tiled BG !
2. Call the sprite MenuBG and set its initial visibility to false
3. On keypress ESC set visible of MenuBG to Visible
4. Then add menu buttons and stuff the same way and your almost done.

You said you were willing to do some simple UI. Not sure if you can get more simple than a box being made visible.

     # Note that this is NOT a perfect starter kit or "engine" . Just try smth out
     and learn from parts of it. I am still a beginner and did everything in the way
     it worked the best for myself. Maybe some parts of this kit can be done better
     or more clean but hey its the first and most complete starter kit here.
