Custom Menu Text

Postby pine41 » Mon Mar 29, 2021 3:13 pm

So really, what I'm trying to do is self-explanatory. I'm trying to change the text on the menu title screen. For example, I want to change the quit button to "Bye Bye" or something.
I'm mainly doing mods in .pk3, and I'm very new to modding. I'm just trying to experiment and change up some stuff. I know that in pk3s, some files have to be in specific folders, so if I'm changing the menu text, it would be greatly appreciated if I could be informed on whether or not the file that I will need should go into a specific directory inside the pk3 file. I tried doing research on this topic, however, I had trouble finding what I needed in the wiki, (cause I'm a beginner), and the only post I found on this topic, was more leaning towards the custom font side.

Anyways, I'm just trying to change the text on the title screen to something custom, like play to "Shoot things now!" and a detailed explanation, or guide on how to accomplish this would be very helpful. Thanks. :D

You can create new menu graphics with something like Doom Text Generator - you can give them the same name as the original graphics in the doom IWADS - If you're using a .pk3 file, the menu graphics will go in the /graphics folder.

All of the menu graphics are prefixed with M_, so for example the "Quit Game" graphic is named M_QUITG
