I've searched the forums and didn't find anything that specifically matched my problem, so I hope someone can help.
The issue I'm having right now is how to go about having the pause menu pop up when the player pauses. Now, I've seen people explain that you'd need to have the menu created as an object and store it in its own layer. Then I'd just have it move up to the top layer when the player hits pause.
But here's where my problem comes in: How would I make sure that the menu always pops up in the right place? If I merely moved it from one layer to another, it could show up completely off-screen. Another potential issue would be how to handle the text and the highlighted effect they're supposed to have when the player moves to that option, but I can work around that with multiple sprites if nobody is sure how to help me out there.
Any help would be appreciated. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
