How do I Create a Retro Button Menu?
as in the keys are what move the selected buttons around and a key to enter and a key to exit
I know it requires lots of event branching and variables
I would like to know if there is an easier way?
functions don't seem to work as they can't include any trigger events
I would like things like volume,controls that sort of thing

if anyone could help I would be very thankful

Could you go into more detail on what you mean by "Retro Button Menu"? I dont really know what you are trying to do.

like instead of buttons,scrollers,ect. using mouse position and input
it uses keys and buttons

like console games that have no mouse
