Can Main Menu have scripts?

For my project, turning it into a Full Conversion. I'm kinda confused, I hear you don't always have to do this, can you give reasons to why I should make a Full Conversion? Like example Main Menus, should require a Full Conversion.

But on to my question, can you put scripting in a custom Main Menu. I was wondering if I could put a 360 degree turning around script in it.

I'd assume so, as the Main Menu is a map.

RE: Can Main Menu have scripts?

You can NOT add a script to a menu. It may be a .map but it doesn't work the same as if you were playing a game. If you wanted to make a 360 degree spin, you would have to import all the room pieces into a 3D program and animate a 360 spin from the center. Then export the whole room as a single .dae (seperate meshes).

Reasons for making a FC include:
- New Menu background
- Font and text colors
- System icons/graphics
- Shader changes
- Lantern changes
- System sound changes (player jump, sanity clicks, etc.)

That's all off the top of my head. It's mainly system changes. That's about it.
