OK I'm new to Unreal editing and Unrealscript. However, I do have some programming experience so hopefully it won't be too difficult for me to get up and running.

Basically, I am trying to achieve the following things:

- Remove weapons and all items from the interface
- Allow useable switches that, once activated, read off a text snippet (preferably using TTS).

For example, you walk up to a switch attached to a phone box and the script kicks in, saying 'This is a phonebox'. Then you do the same to a car, crate or whatever and get the relevant information.

Any ideas to help me get started? Good newbie faqs? I'd appreciate any information you guys can give me.
