Description


Please note:
This is a C++ project, so you cannot simply integrate it into your existing projects. Instead you have to migrate your content into this project. I contacted Epic about this and made a plugin version that fixes this issue. If you want to try it, please send me a mail to malte.schwitters@googlemail.com with a screenshot of your purchase and I give you access to the plugin.

--------------------------------------

This menu kit offers you a quick way to setup the most importent UI for your game. With this menu you get a level selection, a save system, credits, a fully working settings menu and some generic widgets like confirm dialogs and notifications.

The options menu offers all the important customizations for your game: display and graphics settings, key rebinding, audio volumes, a language switcher and all your custom settings saved to ini files. Most of the contents can be easily customized in data tables, so you don't need to edit the widgets for the most common configurations.
