Visual Novel Maker is a flexible tool that allows you to customize your game as much as you want with its powerful default commands. Unlike RPG Maker, VNMaker has two types of starting points: Intro Scene Start Scene Intro Scene means that it will bypass the scripted sequences before starting the game -- meaning the title screen and language screen won't appear at all. In RPG Maker terms, this is the equivalent of Skip Title Screen. Meanwhile, Start Scene is RPG Maker's equivalent of Start Player Position. It means that if you are using the default title screen and the player presses new game, the game will go here. This tutorial is to teach you how to create a simple splash screen before the title screen displays. Determine what kind of Splash Screen you want to do! Is it an image, video or a short cutscene before the game starts? Create the necessary materials for your Splash Screen! Prepare and plan for your game. Create a Scene named Splash. This is where we will create our Splash Screen. There are two ways for us to set an Intro Scene: Right-click the Scene and select "Set as Intro Scene" or Go to Database -> System -> Intro Scene and select Splash. If there are no problems, there should be a tiny green flag on the left side of your Scene name. Image Splash Screen Tutorial Spoiler Maybe you only want to show an image with a small jingle. That's easy! Import your resources using Resource Manager. It can either be a background or picture. In this particular example, the background or image won't get wiped unless the player presses anything. If you are using a Picture: If it's a background: If you do not want the player to press anything and instead the splash moves on automatically, replace the Wait for Input to something like this: Adjust the Wait Duration to your desire. Video Splash Screen Tutorial Spoiler First convert your file to WebM HD. Make sure that the video file is the same size as your game's resolution for an easier time. Rename the file if you desire. Import your video using Resource Manager. Then simply do this: The Play Movie command automatically checks for player input. So you don't need to add wait for input at all. If you don't want the players to be able to skip the movie, then do the following: Why Show Movie? It's because it makes a movie play on the screen similar to a picture and allows the processing of scene commands that come afterwards. Adjust the wait command based on the video's length. If it's 50 seconds then it's 50,000 milliseconds. Now you may have noticed that I have a Change Scene : Title Screen command by the end of each example. This is because I am using an evented Title Screen (or Action Game UI Title Screen if it confuses you). If you are using the default Title Screen, replace the Change Scene to this command instead: If you want to call another layout such as Language Screen, then I recommend reading this page of the Manual. And that's about it! I hope this helped you out.
