Description
The purpose of this addon is simple - to let you use features of many menu-based addons at the same time, such as vocalizers, client and administration menus.

WORK IN PROGRESS
This addon itself and available documentation are unfinished. Expect changes.

FOR WORKSHOP DEVELOPERS
Submitting an Addon
In order to maintain compatibility with addons from other authors you have to reserve your addon. You can do it in this thread. Don't forget to check out with the latest posts and feel free to use next unoccupied index of the list.
I will be manually allocating indexes if they're about to fill up. Some addons may be considered unsupported and removed from the list.

Addon Removal
You can unreserve your addon or report others work in this thread.

Developing
You can find required documentation, look for support and examples in this thread.

FAQ
  1. Q: What the hell is that?
    A: Well known is that you can't have multiple RadialMenu addons working simultaneously without having to merge their features into one RadialMenu file. This addon tries to give you opportunity. In order to achieve this you have to use this framework with RadialMenu addons that are only compatible with this framework.

  2. Q: Why should I use that and not other addons?
    A: You're obviously free to use whatever you want. As stated, this addon is a late experiment and working example of what advanced can be done with clientside modding. It's made the way so you can have multiple features from many different addons without an urge of merging them manually together. Clientside modding tricks and workarounds can be used to provide a smoother experience.

  3. Q: What so advanced with client menus? Console and menus are simple as hell!
    A: They're simple indeed, yet it's still less known about some tricks and glitches. Such as test scripts, timers, simplified RNG, race conditions, KeyValues includes and pseudo-namespaces, simple messages and advanced formatting via ClientMenu, conditional operations (player team, life state, cmd "wait" availability, cvar checking, etc.) - all this can be used together with this framework in order to create a decent content.

  4. Q: How do i make my favorite Workshop Addon to be working with my other favorite Workshop Addon if they're not compatible with framework yet?
    A: You have to contact with addon owner and request support or add a support by yourself.

  5. Q: Does it support ClientMenu as well?
    A: Yes, they're supported the same exact way. When you're reserving addon for RadialMenu, you can use same index for ClientMenu file as well.

I could definitely use some thumbnails for this and related stuff, true. I'll add you and we'll discuss it later. :47_thumb_up:

Oh, cuz I do very good Left 4 Dead screenshots in GMod, I could give you some to use in this kind of mod for main menu

http://spaulding--x.deviantart.com/ that's the author of image, it could be GMod or SFM, I don't know.

I looks like it's a GMod screenshot
Penny_Penguin Apr 1, 2017 @ 1:15pm 
I mean it images you use for this mod. Do you use GMod screenshots?
shqke  [author] Apr 1, 2017 @ 1:13pm 
Garrys mod has got nothing to do with this.
Penny_Penguin Apr 1, 2017 @ 12:01pm 
Do you use just screenshots from GMod to do this?

Don't have much else for a showcase at the very moment. You can add me and i can explain bits if you're interested in developing.
