Re: GUI Overhaul

I don't think a video would be very insightful at this point, perhaps once the XBOX UI is implemented. The entirety of the keyboard control interface is very temporary and should be disposed of later, that is why the first task is making each menu susceptible to a control change.

GUI Overhaul

I want to open discussion on the prospect of redesigning the GUI sub-system.
