Configuration Options

Starting from version v1.4.0, vMenu now uses different convars to configure it’s options. A list of all available options can be found below. Please note that you need to have a recent server artifacts version (around 804) for this to work. All options can also be found in the permissions.cfg, this is also the place where you can configure them. If you want, you could also move this to the server.cfg, as long as it’s above the start vMenu line, but for most people it’ll be eaiser to just keep the config options in the permissions.cfg.

To set an option, use the following command in the server.cfg or permissions.cfg:

setr vmenu_option_name value
Option Possible values Description
vmenu_use_permissions true / false This option allows you to toggle on/off the permissions system in vMenu. If you just want a plug-and-play resource and don’t want to mess with configuring permissions, then use this. It will disable all admin features like banning, kicking, unbanning and similar.
vmenu_menu_staff_only true / false This option allows you to make this menu staff-only. Anyone with the vMenu.Staff permission will be able to use the menu. It will still keep in mind all other permissions, it’s just a way of limiting who can open the menu.
