[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif]Amethyst is a brand new F4 menu designed to fit the "Gemerosity Collection" and takes on an aim in a new direction with F4 menus as a whole. We've included all of the normal things that an F4 menu should have, however, we've tried to make Amethyst a "long-term solution" for people who want versatility, but don't want to have to try out multiple F4 menus in order to get what they need. This script also supports DLCs which are officially in the works (including a custom achievements system -- coming soon!). Since F4 menus are the main focal point of DarkRP -- we plan on making this F4 menu anything and everything you'll ever want.[/font]

[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]FAQ[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: How do I install this script?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] To properly install this script -- you may do the following:[/font]
  • Download a copy of the script and extract it to your computer.

  • Create a new folder within your Garry's Mod server's /addons/ folder named "amethyst"

  • (Do not use CAPITAL LETTERS or S P A C E S in the folder name -- Lowercase only)

  • Upload the extracted folders (lua, materials, resource) to the new folder you created in the /addons/ directory of your server.

  • Restart your server and join. You should test to ensure things work properly BEFORE customizing the settings.

  • Open the /sh/ folder and configure the script how you want.
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Amethyst won't start when I boot my server?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] Ensure that you have placed the script in the right directory of your Garry's Mod server. It is highly recommended that when you create a new folder for your new script, that you DO NOT use spaces or special characters in the folder name. Linux and Windows based servers handle oddly named folders differently. Windows is OK with caps and spaces in the folder names, whereas Linux will completely skip loading an addon if the folder has improper characters within the name.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Getting [/b]

[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b] error -- script won't load[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] This is an extremely rare case, where the server you are currently running is missing the

[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif] parameter. Simply modify your startup parameters to include

-ip ipaddresshere
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif] and restart the server. Should remove the error.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: How do I make my own theme?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] This question is explained in Chapter 3 of this guide. In short: you will need to create a new file within lua/amethyst/sh/themes with your new theme name. Then you'll need to add the theme to the themes config file: lua/amethyst/sh/sh_themes.lua.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: What gamemodes is Amethyst compatible with?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] Amethyst is only compatible with any gamemode that is a branch of DarkRP, meaning it is compatible with SeriousRP, MethRP, SWRP (StarWarsRP), and so forth. In short, if it is a derivative of DarkRP, then this script is compatible with it.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: How can I add jobs/shipments/etc to the menu?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] You will add your jobs and other items into your server just the same as you did before. Amethyst is a client-side script that will take your existing items and put them into the new F4 menu. Your actual items are added through DarkRP/DarkRP Modifications. If you need assistance with adding jobs or items to your server; you can read the Official DarkRP Wiki[]. Amethyst itself doesn't control what items are on your server.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Can I edit the "failsafe" theme?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] It is NOT RECOMMENDED that you edit the failsafe theme. It is there to ensure that if any theme is missing certain values, the failsafe will kick in so that nil value errors can be avoided. Do NOT touch this file unless you know what you are doing. If you do break the failsafe theme, you'll need to download a new copy and replace the file. We do not support you modifying this file, and if you do so, no support will be given.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Why am I getting frame drops?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] Amethyst includes a lot of "visual enhancements" for the best possible look. We've focused a lot of time on optimization, however, depending on each computer, you may experience a drop in frames when the panel is open. It is recommended that if you're experiencing low fps, to disable the visual enhancements within the settings area. This means the "Live Bokeh Effect", "Live Wallpapers", anything related to blur, and other visual enhancements. It also depends on how many items the server owner has added to the F4 menu list such as jobs, shipments, etc.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Why can't I see the Live Wallpapers once enabled?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] First, ensure that you've pressed Apply Changes at the bottom of the settings page after you've enabled the feature. Also, Live Wallpapers are a panel behind the primary panel, so if you cannot see Live Wallpapers running, then you'll need to go into the Settings panel, and ensure that your Alpha color for the item Primary Color (located in the "General" section) is set to something BELOW 255.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Why is my text too big?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] It is possible that you haven't synced all of the resources to your FastDL yet. Without the proper fonts being distributed when you connect to the server; fonts may look different or appear bigger than they should be. Double-check your FastDL and make sure you have all items in the resource folder synced with FastDL. DO NOT try creating a new steam workshop collection with the fonts included -- it will break the fonts all together. This is a bug in Garry's Mod, and we have no way to control this.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: Why do I have black/pink textures?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] This means that you don't have the materials that this script comes with available by download. You need to either subscribe to the official steam workshop collection for this script and add it your server, or you can sync the materials with your FastDL server. After doing so, you should restart both your server AND your game client-side copy of Garry's Mod, and reopen it completely, then reconnect to your server.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: How can I request new features?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] The best way to request new features to be added is by submitting a ticket for the script itself via -- however, please be aware that features are added in bundles with each update that is released. Therefore it may take some time for your feature to be added (as long as it's within reason and beneficial to the script and other customers.[/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Question: When will the next update be released?[/b][/font]
[font="Hind Vadodara", sans-serif][b]Answer:[/b] We try to release updates in bundles -- which means that each update has to be "worth a release". Typically updates won't happen if just a minor thing needs to be added or addressed unless it's affecting game-play on a bad level. Each time an update is released, customers have to re-configure the entire script, so we want to make sure that we put in a fair amount of changes to justify our customers haven't do this. We also never give deadlines or dates on when an update is being released. But rest assured -- they will happen.[/font]
