The Menu

The Menu

Oh boy, look at that shiny new Founder rank you're wearing. Lookin' good! I bet you're thinking, "Now it's time to get my ban on!" Not quite, but you're almost there my fine friend. You need to open up the menu and find out where the heck the ban button is! How do you open the menu, you ask? Well, there are two ways. You can use the chat, or you can bind a key for quicker access. To open the menu using the chat, simply type `!menu` and the ServerGuard menu should pop up in the center of your screen. If you'd like to have a key to open the menu, open up your console by pressing ~, and type `bind b +serverguard_menu` into the text box and smack your enter key. Not too hard though, you could potentially break your keyboard. You are now able to press and hold B on your keyboard to bring up the menu. If you don't like having to hold B and you'd rather have a different key, just replace the `b` in the command shown above with a key of your choice.

The menu is fairly simple to get around, everything is separated into categories on the left-hand side of the menu, and the content for each category is shown on the right. Pressing the x in the top-right hand corner will close the menu. However if you've bound a key to opening the menu, letting go of the key you've bound it to will also close the menu.

You can scroll through the various categories by using the scroll bar, or your mouse's scroll wheel if it has one. Clicking on an icon will bring up that category's contents. Some categories may not have their content displayed as soon as you open up the category, you may need to manually refresh it. This is due to the fact that there may be too much data to have stored at once, so ServerGuard sends over any data that it needs when it's needed, such as the ban list, news articles, etc.

When you hover your mouse over some things like an entry in a list, you may have a tooltip show up that will tell you some quick information that may be useful to what you're trying to achieve. Right clicking certain things may also bring up a menu where you can interact with the item you've selected.
