F.A.Q.

Read this before asking for support.


Q: How do I change the ’M’ (menu toggle) key to ‘some other key’?

A: Look here for the convar (configuration) options.


Q: How do I make this menu admin only?

A: Look at the configuration page, make the menu staff only by setting the convar and giving your staff members the vMenu.Staff ace.


Q: How do I change the name of my addon car in vMenu?

A: Go to this page.


Q: I installed vMenu correctly but I only see Misc settings and About menu! HELP!!!!

A: First of all, you did not install vMenu correctly (if you use the default permissions file). Second: look at the installation instructions! They are very easy to follow. Most likely you didn’t put the permissions.cfg in the correct location or you didn’t add the correct exec line (correct one for your setup) ABOVE the start vMenu line. Alternatively you may have altered the permissions.cfg file and made a mistake giving players access to specific menus, double check your permissions file and compare it to the original. Or go to this site for a permissions generator if you can’t figure out what life is.


Q: When I install vMenu the sky starts flickering… HELP!

A: You’re using multiple weather and/or time (sync) scripts (for example vSync). Disable those and you’ll be fine. If you want to use the other script instead of vMenu’s weather/time options, then disable the weather/time sync options using the convars (explained on the Configuration Options page). If you’re not using multiple time/weather scripts, then stop using your broken graphics mod, 9/10 times it’s caused by that. If you’re not using a graphics mod either: there’s no point in reporting this because I can’t fix it, vMenu weather/time options work fine for 99% of the users, I’ve not had a single person come to me saying it is broken when they removed graphics mods & all other time/weather scripts.


Q: The permissions.cfg is not being executed/my changes are not being saved!

A: First of all, vMenu does NOT, I repeat, does NOT read the permissions.cfg. You are responsible for executing this file (by adding the exec <path_to_permissions.cfg> command in the server.cfg) before starting vMenu. Make sure it is getting executed. If you see a message in the server console saying something like No such config file: permissions.cfg then you haven’t placed the permissions.cfg in the correct folder or your exec command is using the wrong file path to your permissions.cfg. If you get an error in the server console saying No such command: setr then read the question below.


Q: I get an error saying No such command: setr in the server console!

A: Update your server. You are using an outdated version of FXServer. You need to be using at least version 801 or above. This is only the case for vMenu v1.4.0 and up.


Q: vMenu v1.4.0 no longer works or the permissions and/or options no longer work since v1.4.0!

A: Most likely it’s one of the following:

  1. You might be using the old convars, check the configuration page for a list of the most recent convar names.
  2. Make sure to use setr instead of set to configure the convars.
  3. If that doesn’t work, update your server. You are using an outdated version of FXServer. You need to be using at least version 801 or above. This is only the case for vMenu v1.4.0 and up.

Q: My question is not listed here?

A: Look on the forum topic, chances are it has been asked before. Just use CTRL + F on the forum and a very advanced search feature will show up, allowing you to search for things inside that topic!
