Using Schematyc to implement a functioning main menu. Nick takes you step-by-step through the process using Galaxsys, a twin-stick shooter game sample that you can download for free from the CRYENGINE Asset Database. We recommend that you download it before you watch the tutorial so you can follow along. You'll be shown how to add a menu with clickable buttons to the game and learn the basics of the Schematyc workflow. You will be able to apply what you learn to your own projects.
