Introduction

This plugin aims to replicate the feature of retro games in the title screen where you have to "Press Start" before starting the game.

Features

• Choose an image to use for the press start feature.
• Choose predefined positions or custom ones.
• Choose how quickly the opacity will change.
• Choose what button you will press on the press start feature.
• Choose an MV animation to play when you press the button.
• Optionally choose a delay for the 'Press Start' to be gone after you press the button.
• Can use it not only in the title screen but also on the scene map for event title screens.

How to use

The plugin parameters are self-explanatory.
You can use it on the title screen(by default) or if you want to use it
in Scene Map, you have to use the plugin command.

Put an image of your preference in the img/system.

NOTE¹: For now it only supports MV animations. If you do not want any animation to play, put none in the animation parameter.

You will probably have to go to the plugin parameter and change the key code parameter.

Artists out there, is there something RPG maker related you wish your graphics software had but doesn't? (Something like automatically transform a wall tile into a cylindrical tower). I want to give a boost to WecTools, but I'm dry of ideas right now...
having anxiety during all this virus stuff is the absolute worst. I'm the only one missing out on my friend's wedding in Sept. because I can't be in large groups of people anymore due to anxiety.
Well... I just spent most of the day making something I cant even use xD

The idea was to look at the original but at a medium distance.
In hindsight, I might as well have just edited the original lol... I didn't intend for it to end up so similar.
does anyone else feel tired after completing a sprite?
