    Ooh... I really like that suggestion to include characters you've met along the way on the title screen. It gives me an idea to have the screen change from the first started game, to the first save, and then on, each with the characters included. Probably in some art I'll need to come up with on my own. Agh, so much work with so little time in a day, haha.

    One idea I had is to have the latest save file's save location appear as the title background. If that specific save file loads up, it immediately jump into the game. Pretty neat, eh?
    On a side note, do you think you could make a video about how the basics of making good and interesting battles? Love your work btw!

    Thank you for this tutorial ^^
    Maybe you could make one where you explain how to make "chatter"events where you see a small picture at the bottom of the screen telling to press some button and then you get to see a little event where your actors are talking like the "Skit" feature in the tales of games?

  • ThunderDragonRandy
    ThunderDragonRandy 3 years ago

    Oh, also, when I use this plugin, any time I press an action button (like Z) before my title screen appears, music changes and a shadow is casted and I can move it around. Also, pressing the cancel button (like X) brings up the pause menu during the splash/pre-title screen too. YEP's RegionRestriction plugin isn't working for me.
    EDIT: Fixed that issue. I had my splash screen set to run in Parallel. Changing that to Autorun fixed it.

  • John Lynch

    Just a minor critique - you go so damn fast on screen and skip through a ton of settings on almost every video. That said - thanks for making these.

  • LittleBigSmoak
    LittleBigSmoak 2 years ago +1

    A problem I noticed is that when you try to exit the game from the menu that pops up, it ends up just taking you to the title menu. This would be fine if the tutorial just showed how to make a cutscene that plays before you get dropped off on the title menu, but you didn't tell us how to do that, so I think now we're just stuck
    Please help.

  • Juan Alvarado-Artiga
    Juan Alvarado-Artiga 4 years ago

    I used this plugin so that it goes to a map with all the splash screens, along with animation to make a title page on the same map. I set up the choices, one of them being to start game which would transfer the player to another map. However, when I clicked on it to test, the title picture, along with the title name picture and other effects on the first map transfer along with it and the player does not appear anywhere on the new map. Is there any way that I can make the first map behave like the default title screen where, once you hit ‘start game’ it will send you to a new map where the character player begins?

  • MrCheeseGaming
    MrCheeseGaming 6 years ago

    I still have a handful of projects to finish in VX Ace, but I'll favorite and bookmark your video as a reference when I finally purchase MV. It would be great to use this script and have an animated prologue for the title screen.

    So I tried this out and it's cool! The only issue is if I exit the options menu the entire title screen starts over, which I dont want cause then the splash I play using images beforehand shows again instead of just going back to the selection box.

    is there any way to simply have a custom image as the background of the title screen (instead of the images rpg maker provides) ?

  • chinito77
    chinito77 5 years ago

    By default, the MadeWithMV splash screen loads, then you have your title screen. Once you start/continue a game and quit, you end up in the title screen. However, I have been using the Hime_PreTitleEvents to create my custom title screen. In just one screen/map, I have an event which plays 2 "splash pages" then proceeds to the "title screen". Again, all on the same map, just using parallax backgrounds to make it appear that different windows/screens are popping up. So the end result is this: User starts game, MadewithMV splash screen appears and fades out, my custom logo splash screen fades in then out, user is presented with title screen showing the Start Game, Continue, Options, Exit buttons. All of this on one map which I have the plugin replace the default title page and events to manage all mentioned transitions.
    So the problem is that once I press start and either being a new game/continue game and quit, it loops me back to the first MadewitMV splash screen, 2nd custom splash screen, then back to title page. My question is how to cut/prevent the 2 splash screens in the event from playing again unless the user quits the app then restarts it? Is there a way to place some kind of anchor in the event script? The Label and jump label don't do it, and my IF/Else conditional branches can't seem to over ride it as well.

    Hi Echo,
    I love you videos. They are help me a lot. I have a little request here.
    I would like to have a auto-save (check point) option where players are allow to choose their own save file at the very beginning of the game but then after they cannot save until they reach the check point. Can you show me how? Please.
    Thank you in advance. :))

  • CaptainX

  • Crazicide
    Crazicide 5 years ago +1

    Could I ask a question? So, I've made the map my main title screen. And I've added options and the load screen to the title screen. But whenever I mess with the settings and then leave (I press esc) It just restarts back to the beginning of the game (Which is basically where I just was, but with a splash screen). I've tried adding labels to fix this, but it doesn't seem to work.

    • SkipperKippz456
      SkipperKippz456 3 years ago

      My proposed fix for this: don't use the splash screen plugin and instead set up the splash screen in the autorun event on your title map with show picture and wait commands. If you're using images on the title screen to show the "new game," "load game," etc., you can also preload those images while the splash screen is showing with the script call: ImageManager.loadPicture("[filename]")

    • ThunderDragonRandy
      ThunderDragonRandy 3 years ago

      What I did is: I added this plugin to the plugin manager multiple times (at least one for splash screen(s) and one for title screen), however, doing it that way, the chosen title screen isn't being recognized as the title screen anymore. :( I need help too.

  • The gamer's league
    The gamer's league 5 years ago

    My title screen starts off in a room (It's the MC's room that you arrive at pretty early on.) with him sitting at the desk "reading". When you start the game the character bolts to the door and starts the actual adventure. As you do certain tasks more people come into your room and wander.

    i love your videos echo there awesome but i got a random question me and my buddy are working on a game we must have worked on it for two months but today going to open it i noticed that while we were making the game the story all clashes in certain areas and certain plugins arent working/new ones are out now that would make our lives way easier would it just be easier to restart using our content and clean everything up or go through everything making it work? have you ever just scrapped a game and just restarted from scratch because of something like that before?

  • Solar Dragon

    i HAVE A QUESTION!
    for the part on "how to make the scrolling text skipable" how exactly do you do that based on the tip that you gave us in the video? could you expand on that, i'm having trouble understanding it. :(
    like by "try having them on parallel" are you reffering to the same parallel as the picture, or a different one completely?

    • Hafizul Hakim

      Echo607 could u make a tutorial video on how to skip a video if certain button be press ?

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago +1

      Having the event on parallel(instead of autorun) will allow it to be shut down by other events.
      You'd have to have the text as an image(or video) as they're passive, and have that event show/move them.
      Have a separate parallel event that says "If X button is pressed, erase picture x/movie: none(requires a plugin for movies), and turn on switch X/variableX/outerselfswitch(outer selfswitch plugin is boss:P)
      whichever switch/variable you set, have it set on the conditions of the second page of the first event, the one that's showing the pictures.
      So:
      Event1 shows pictures
      Event2 click X to skip/erase everything
      Event1-pg2 - isn't showing pictures.

    when using plugins do they have to be in a specific order?

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago

      +ilovecandy0221 Sometimes. Usually, "Core" plugins(ex, Yanfly's CoreEngine, or BattleCoreEngine, or MessageCore) should be placed near the top, and any plugins that require the Core plugins(Yanfly's Action Sequences, MessageExtentions) should be placed after.
      Any misc plugins are usually good wherever.
      It reads it from top to bottom, so if something's conflicting, it can sometimes help to place it at the start/end of the list to try and get it to work.

    Echo
    I have an odd question, in relation to another video you posted.
    "Falling into the trap of getting better, basically starting over and making a new project whilst losing your old idea,"
    Well...what if you updated from VX Ace to MV?
    What if because of the update you could tell your story better, understand the graphics/character creator better, and you understand events better because of the updates? Is it still losing your idea?
    I'm asking because I've been in a weird situation.
    I wanna finish my VX Ace project...but I know my skills have increased and gotten better.
    Do I continue with MV and use the quick Ace Demo as reference?
    Do I work with both?
    I'm unsure.
    Also...
    I have a character named Zephyr...I SWEAR TO YOUR GAME'S GODDESS I DIDN'T STEAL HIM FROM YOU!

    • The gamer's league

      Haha!
      This is why I love and respect you. Always funny, honest, and down to the point.
      I think MV could make everything easier. I had a few placeholders in ACE that during the demo threw some people off.
      Anyways...
      I'm gonna get back to turning Zephyr into... *Insert spoiler warning here*
      You'll just have to see :P
      Maybe when I get the first 1-2 hour demo done...I'll send you a link.
      Have fun, stay strong, and never EVER stop doing what you do.

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago +1

      Hahaha:3
      Think about the benefits and drawbacks to each. If you REALLY want to do it in MV, you should. But if you're perfectly okay with VXa, and there's no real reason to go to MV, I'd stay with vxa.
      It's more of a "when you find something like like, stick to it and trust your own judgement"
      If you think using MV would make significant improvements to what you have, then sure, go for it:P
      If you have the time and drive, the ideal solution would be finish what you have, and start it again later, if that makes sense. Once you finish something, it's a lot easier to stay committed to future ideas.
      And also that's awesome xD

  • Cole Goodrich

      @lightbitcloud​ so... it basically stops at the end of each battle? You'll need a paralel event to change your actor sprite to normal and remove the transformation state. This event must be applied to every map You have though...

    kind of off topic, but do you know how to change the icon of an rpg maker MV game? Because, whenever I try to change it, it doesn't show in the editor, when I develop it, the .exe icon is the default one, but when I run my game, the task bar icons changed, ideas?

    • Arcanua the Red Mage
      Arcanua the Red Mage 6 years ago

      +LavaDragon0010 Another way to do it and I can sa this'll work on while making it is to go in RM's program file in your C drive or where ever you installed it and modify the icon file from there. However the trick to it is I've not tested if it retains the icon upon deployment and run on another machine, seeing as it's the programs system data vs. the game I'd assume it will not keep the changes if made in that manner.

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago

      +LavaDragon0010 The icon in the icon folder only effects the game window's icon and task bar icons.
      To change the icon program icon, you'll need resource hacker:

      Something like - if any, let's say, 'enlisted' characters that aren't there for plot die in battle, when the battle is finished they are removed from the party?

      If a character other than the lead character dies in combat they are removed from the game completely unless the save is reset or a new game is started

    +Echo607 Hey, I been trying to find if there is a way to transfer my game that I was working on in RPG maker VX, not Ace, to MV. I spent well over 100 hours on it already so if possible would rather not redo it. Do you know if there is a way to do this currently and if so could you point me in the right direction? Or is it better to just start a new game with MV?

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago

      I use a wacom drawing tablet, though it's not required. I used a mouse for a long time, but it's a pain. I usually draw in Paint Tool Sai and use photoshop for backgrounds and effects.
      Though it's not necessary. If you've already got photoshop, use that:P

    • Vega Liscious

      +Echo607 Do I need a graphictablet or what they are called, for digital drawing and what software would you recommend? I already got photoshop.

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago

      +HowlinWolf TV Definitely:3 Drawing isn't a requirement in the slightest, as there are tons of resources available. And if you wanted to get better at drawing, it might be a good way to push you into try it:P

    Is there a way to add a "delete file" option without plugins?

    • Silica 🏳️‍⚧️
      Silica 🏳️‍⚧️ 4 years ago

      i guess you could do a Get Number event or something
      with a bunch of conditional branches for 1-20 (or find how the hell variables are read in the JS Code itself and just use that)
      localStorage["RPG FIle1"] = 0; (where you replace 1 with file id)
      and it *should* clear out that save ?
      you can also do localStorage.clear() to delete everything.

    You think it's possible with these scripts to make a New Game+ feature for my game?

    • Echo607
      Echo607  6 years ago

      +Aiden Burnett I remember seeing other ng+ plugins, but I recall them not really working they way I wanted them to.
      There IS a way to do it with these, but I'm not entirely sure the best way to go about it(would probably require a lot of exterior code)
      BUT that all depends on how indepth you want your ng+ to be. It COULD be done with a lot of variables I'd imagine, depending on how much stuff you'd want to carry over:3
