I made a post about this some time ago, but it got no responses because I think I was incorrectly describing the problem.
I'm trying to make a selection menu more or less exactly like the one in the Mega Man games:
There needs to be a cursor object, and text objects for each ability. On down/up pressed it moves the position of the cursor, when the cursor is over that text object, it changes the ability variable of the player.
I had this working myself in basic form for two abilities because the only directions were up and down. I set on Up pressed set cursor position on top of text object 1, Down pressed to text object 2. Now that I have more than 3 abilities, I am completely lost at where to go. I need help because I still haven't found a comprehensive menu tutorial that accomplishes what I'm attempting. I would really appreciate the help.
