Hearts of Iron 3 Quick Menu
Authors: Tigurus
Version: 1.01
Type: Custom Title
Key Term: Custom Menu System


I am not addicted to Paradox games at all! But anyhow, I made a quick menu. Which allows you to make presets to quickly go to a certain difficulty, scenario, bonus etc.
These presets are still hand-made with conditional branches though!


- 4 Presets which can be used as difficulty or scenario's
- 3 lines for scenario descriptions
- Easy to edit scenario names & description
- Go to Quick Menu when no save game is made. Else go to normal title screen

Spoiler: ShowHide


Download: Demo + Script


To install this script:
Open the Script Editor (F11)
Put a empty line under the default scripts and above main.
Copy and paste the script from the text file into the editor.
Additionally, you can copy-paste the script from the Demo on the same place.
Close the editor and enjoy!

Additional instruction:

In the Quick Menu, Use "esc" to switch windows.

Instruction: Use the config below to call your scenario's name. Leaving them
empty and deleting the "s4,3,2, 1" (regarding the amount of scenario's you 
want) to add or delete scenario's. (Line 320) #
Use a intro map with an auto-event. Use conditional branches for:
- tutorial 
- scenario1 
- scenario2 
- scenario3
- scenario4 
As condition: Call Script: "$tutorial != nil and $tutorial == true" for the 
Conditions you want to send the player in when pressing the Tutorial Button 
For the others, change to $scenario1, 2, 3 or 4. 

In main we shall have to change 

"$scene = Scene_Title.new"


$scene = Scene_QuickMenu.new
  for i in 0..3
    if FileTest.exist?("Save#{i+1}.rxdata")
      $scene = Scene_Title.new


This script will most likely not work with any Title Screen script. Not tested on SDK
