Restricting the Player Menu

I have read and re-read this post ( about restricting the player menu when you have custom buttons but it is not working for me.

I have a menu that only has top level topic names showing not all slides.  Following the instructions above I have to have a custom button on the slide master and set the trigger on each slide in the course.

My issue is there is also an onscreen menu slide menu that has its own restrictions displaying when a topic is

not started, incomplete, complete.

Can someone confirm is the only way to restrict the player menu  by using variables that sit on the slide master? and then trigger on the course slide?  Can i bypass the slide master and use the logic i have already set for the onscreen menu to control the player menu?
