Hi i'm trying to add a menu to my vehicle that lets u change gears, unlock/lock vehicle and etc etc. I have only found one script that supposedly does it;

// ButtonAbstractionLayer
// This script is responsible for monitoring touchable linked prims ("buttons")
// It also implements the ability to toggle button availability

The problem is.... What the heck is all this?! Like, none of it makes any sense to me. I even tried to put it in my vehicle and touch it but nothing happens. I'm ripping my hair out (even tho I don't have enough to rip out atm) and I really need help. So if someone can tell me exactly how to do it instead of giving hints or if someone is willing to share a copy of script with me then id be so happy and grateful!

well from what I can see , it's some kind of touch event script,  but you are going to need more than one script for each thing, like wheels and such.  Let see what I have.  not sure I have anything relevant, but I check.

It's a general purpose library for managing push button touch events. By itself, it won't do anything. You need other scripts to make it work. Those other scripts receive link messages from this script and send link messages to it. They tell it which buttons do which function at startup. Then, this script sends a link message when you push the button.

All those string handling functions are to pack up multiple parameters into a text string to be sent as a link message. I'd use the JSON functions for that, since they're built in, but this code is old enough to predate those.

This is part of some set of scripts. You only have one piece here.

This is complicated for what it does. I've written bike scripts, and button management does not require this kind of complexity.

Oh hey if this isn't one of those "Let me try to force object oriented programming in SL".

Yeah this looks quite dated judging from the masses of one liner functions and... the copyright mention being 2005-2006.
