  3. Copy paste the script inside the file and save it
  4. Press F12 during game to toggle UI

Oh it may not be very convenient but definitely nice to have, as it increases the viewport area in the original game

Ok it actually doesn't increase the viewport size... I mean it does but it doesn't really allow you to have a wider view, instead it just resizes the original view area to fit the whole screen. Anyway, nice job!

Is this the Scripts/General inside the M&M 6 folder? Where is the repository?

Yes, the directory should be in M&M 6 folder once MMExtension is installed

Update: the script now shows UI when not rendering 3D view (in houses, inventory and such)

Yes I press f12 and nothing happens could it be because the file I have have is called .lua I am not sure it takes files that have dots on them (maybe instead just lua) also my mm6hd file is in there also.

Does console appear if pressing ctrl+f1?
Filename should be something like uitoggle.lua

Yes ctrl f-1 toggles the debug program and I renamed the file like you said but it doesn't work still.

MMExtension might be outdated if it was installed prior. Or some other program is bound to F12 so the game is unable to use it. So you can try altering F12 to F1-F11.
Try running other scripts from Script/General directory, like Hello World example to confirm that everything is set up correctly.

What can I do with the debug menu? I should be able to correct it from there.

How do I alter f-12 to f11 f10 etc..? I've never worked with MMExtension before.

Change this line in the script:
function Keys.F12(t)
To something like:
function Keys.F5(t)
or
function Keys.O(t)

Regarding the Hello World example it can be found here:
https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/#Hello-world!

Debug menu was just to verify that MMExtension is running

The keyboard f12 scripting etc doesn't work. I also have the Voodoo2 wrapper installed too.

Whatever it is, whether this review expands or not, it looks very cool and it is worth trying this script. Of course, someone will not like it, but there are no universal things that would be liked by everyone, without exception.

Now if if someone would put this with the M&M 6 interface into an installer...
