Hi, I already renewed the code you gave me and it worked. Thank you so much! This menu is my favorite plugin and it made me sad that I wouldn't be able to use it!
Just trying this for the first time today! Looks really slick, but ran into a few errors

In the plugin file "004_VoltseonMenu_Components.rb", I had to adjust the code beginning at line 132 like this:

# Status
status = 0
if pokemon.fainted?
status = GameData::Status::DATA.keys.length / 2
elsif pokemon.status != :NONE
status = GameData::Status.get(pokemon.status).icon_position + 1
elsif pokemon.pokerusStage == 1
status = GameData::Status::DATA.keys.length - 1

as the previously referenced ID number variable doesn't seem to exist, and because the position being pointed at was one indicator above the appropriately coloured status indicator.

(@DonCaretas18, this should fix your problem)
Don't really understand how it works, I've plugged it in and it still uses the regular pause menu.
Great plug-in, and wonderful customization. I only have one issue involving a black outline that keeps popping up around the location name while scrolling through the pause menu that wasn't priorly addressed. Other than that, awsome resource
Great but I noticed that in the Options menu the Menu Theme Style started at 0/9 and ended at 8/9 instead of going from 1/9 to 9/9. I fixed it by replacing :
"parameters" => 0..MENU_TEXTCOLOR.length,
line 349 in 002_VoltseonMenu_Main.rb
by :
"parameters" => 1..MENU_TEXTCOLOR.length + 1,
Snazzy! Easily edited to include new buttons and features!
It's great, it works, and it looks cool. 10/10, would install again.
genuinely awesome. one of the cleanest pause menus out there.
Had a bit of trouble at first but after asking it got fixed. Looks great and doesnt have any input lag
This is the best looking menu I have ever seen (for now ;) )
