As promised last night the latest Empire GUI tutorial has been published. This adds a listbox with clickable listitems. Ie basically a menu.
I left animation (ie the menu items moving) but hope to add them in in a day or two. Meanwhile I've decided to carry on with the main game code and the next tutorial will set the game up with troops etc. on the map, plus the shroud and initial cities setup etc. Plus it would be nice to use zip files for bundling up resources.
Plus I hope to move the standalone Empire map generator code into this and bypass the slight bug that seems to be happening with the load map from text file code (it overwrites memory!).
