As well as the character, vehicle and asset/level bits, i'm responsible for the games frontend stuffs - the HUD, menu, labels, icons etc etc, to basically give it a higher level of professionalism, and make it feel like "our" game.

I had a play about with scaleform, built 3 menu systems that didnt work [they just didnt want to communicate with the udk at all] but in the end, found out how they transfer data between each other, thus these ^.
99% of the code work, however, goes to Dann, for making blank buttons actually do things [i managed to get it to load up our level when you hit start, but im completely out of my depth with anything else. Learned a hell of a lot from watching him sort it out though] In the video hes linked the character/vehicle selection buttons to actually select them and save them, so when you choose start, the game loads with whichever character/vehicle you have selected, neat.

The bottom lil bit is what ive been doing this morning, I can't even begin to think when the last time I vectored something was, good fun anyway. Its a basic template for the manual, in-game display of controls, and a lil poster we'll print for the end of year show.

It's nice to see everything coming together, never thought i'd be as chilled out as I am now, still a fair bit to do, but we nailed a lot very early on, so now its just a case of polishing everything. Cant wait for the exhibition.
