Scpui.tbl is used by the SCPUI script system to define what engine game states are linked to librocket RML files. This effectively allows SCPUI to override a built-in game UI with one of its own. This table also allows setting various background definitions for UIs on a granular basis.

SCPUI.tbl can be extended with xxx-ui.tbm.


  • SCPUI defines what game states and substates exist for SCPUI through the use of this table file and modular -ui.tbms.
  • Begins with one of the section names and ends with #End

#State Replacement

  • This section defines what RML files are used to replace specific game states.



  • The name of the substate
  • Required for GS_STATE_SCRIPTING
  • Syntax: string


  • The path to the RML file definition to use for the game state
  • Must include the file path
  • Syntax: string

#Background Replacement

  • Defines what css class to use to set the background for UIs on a per-campaign basis.
  • By default all UIs use the css classgeneral_bg.

$Campaign Background:

  • Designates that a new define will follow
  • Has no arguments

+Campaign Filename:

  • The campaign filename without extension
  • Syntax: string

+RCSS Class Name:

  • The css class name to use as a replacement. Make sure this class exists in a loaded rcss file!
  • Syntax: string

#Briefing Stage Background Replacement

  • Defines customized briefing grid backgrounds on a per-mission or per-briefing-stage level.
  • The background is br-black.png by default.

$Briefing Grid Background:

  • Designates that a new define will follow
  • Has no arguments

+Mission Filename:

  • The mission filename where the briefing background will be replaced
  • Without extension
  • Syntax: string

+Default Background Filename:

  • The new default background file to use for the mission
  • WITH extension
  • Syntax: string

+Stage Override:

  • The briefing stage of the mission to define an override for
  • Not required for every stage. Any stage without an override will use the mission default
  • Syntax: integer
+Background Filename:
  • The new default background file to use for the stage
  • WITH extension
  • Syntax: string


#State Replacement

+Markup: data/interface/markup/pilot_select.rml

+Substate: Newsroom
+Markup: data/interface/markup/journal.rml

#Background Replacement

$Campaign Background:
	+Campaign Filename: bta1_m
	+RCSS Class Name: bta1_bg

#Briefing Stage Background Replacement

$Briefing Grid Background:
	+Mission Filename: bta2_m1_01
	+Default Background Filename: br-black.png
	+Stage Override: 1
		+Background Filename: br-deltaserpentis.png
	+Stage Override: 2
		+Background Filename: br-stars.png
	+Stage Override: 5
