    Ok, so I've got this problem. I tried this case:
    PHP Code:
    #ifndef DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM
    #define DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, _name) \
        
    itemDef \
        { \
            
    name            "button_" ## _name \
            
    visible            1 \
            
    rect             0 0 128 24 HORIZONTAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT VERTICAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT \
            
    origin            _key \
            
    forecolor        GLOBAL_UNFOCUSED_COLOR \
            
    type            ITEM_TYPE_BUTTON \
            
    text            "test " ## _name \
            
    textfont        UI_FONT_NORMAL \
            
    textscale        .25 \
            
    textstyle        ITEM_TEXTSTYLE_SHADOWED \
            
    textalignx        10 \
            
    textaligny        20 \
        }
    #endif

    #define DRAW_WEAPON(_key, _name)     DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, _name)

    DRAW_WEAPON(ORIGIN_CHOICEAm1carbine_mp
    And the button name here was "test _name". So, my variable wasn't used. I tried this one then (with #):
    PHP Code:
    #ifndef DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM
    #define DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, _name) \
        
    itemDef \
        { \
            
    name            "button_" ## #_name \
            
    visible            1 \
            
    rect             0 0 128 24 HORIZONTAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT VERTICAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT \
            
    origin            _key \
            
    forecolor        GLOBAL_UNFOCUSED_COLOR \
            
    type            ITEM_TYPE_BUTTON \
            
    text            "test " ## #_name \
            
    textfont        UI_FONT_NORMAL \
            
    textscale        .25 \
            
    textstyle        ITEM_TEXTSTYLE_SHADOWED \
            
    textalignx        10 \
            
    textaligny        20 \
        }
    #endif

    #define DRAW_WEAPON(_key, _name)     DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, #_name)

    DRAW_WEAPON(ORIGIN_CHOICEAm1carbine_mp
    And here I've got this name: "test #_name". So, as I see, we can't send our variables. And that's strange, because in kung used it... By the way, with define ORIGIN_CHOICEA it works, so I'll try to use defines only.

    Ok, and here I found why kung could use it and why I couldn't. That's all because we can't use concatenation here. Removed concatenation and now it's ok:
    PHP Code:
    #ifndef DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM
    #define DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, _name) \
        
    itemDef \
        { \
            
    name            _name \
            
    visible            1 \
            
    rect             0 0 128 24 HORIZONTAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT VERTICAL_ALIGN_DEFAULT \
            
    origin            _key \
            
    forecolor        GLOBAL_UNFOCUSED_COLOR \
            
    type            ITEM_TYPE_BUTTON \
            
    text            _name \
            
    textfont        UI_FONT_NORMAL \
            
    textscale        .25 \
            
    textstyle        ITEM_TEXTSTYLE_SHADOWED \
            
    textalignx        10 \
            
    textaligny        20 \
        }
    #endif

    #define DRAW_WEAPON(_key, _name)     DRAW_WEAPON_ITEM(_key, _name)

    DRAW_WEAPON(ORIGIN_CHOICEA"m1carbine_mp"
    Or maybe somebody knows how to use it?

    By the way. in this message serthy showed concatenation outside the macros:
    PHP Code:
    GOOD"test" "test " TEST " blaa" 
    But can we do the same with non-string text (without quotes)? Because this cases don't work (TEST is variable here):
    PHP Code:
    FUNC"test" test TEST blaa 
    PHP Code:
    FUNC"test" test ## TEST ## blaa ) 
    P.S. and sorry for 3 messages in a row

    By the time of now you could already have written a Python/PHP/Perl/whatever script which easily produces way more complex menus than what macro fu ever could
    i scroll at stuff
