Many many thanks for spending time to answer my request!
Sorry, I was in a panic after 3 weeks of trying to figure out what I did different to cause the menu to show at mission start. Before I messed it up, the sound files would play, and after they played Then the menu would show.
To try and use the TAB suggestion, I do have to ask. can we program in the key press or do we need the user to do that?
