How to have only 1 character in main menu, but more party members in-game?

Is there a way that you can permanently hide all player characters except your main one in main menu, while still retaining the capacity to have party followers in-game?

My game follows a single character, with the exception of a couple of parts when they get a pet follower. So while I want the pet to follow them around, and maybe event have some default battling skills, I don't want them to be any more complex than that (no equipping, no extra learnable skills). Ideally I could just not have them visible/selectable in the main menu.

And (possibly a pipe-dream) remove the actor select functionality altogether, so that when you select equip or skill it opens directly into the main actors stage, rather than having to 'select' the only actor there.

Is any of this possible at all?

Thanks! :kaohi:

Yes it is possible, but you'll need to modify the main menu's code. If you don't know how, then you should make a javascript request.

In case anyone has a similar issue, I solved part of the issue using http://himeworks.com/2016/03/guest-followers/, which allows you to add a party member as a guest, without having all their stats etc in the menu.

Still hoping I'll find a solution to remove the actor selection in main menu, but worst case scenario this is an ok solution.

I never realized how much fun destroying scenery by ramming it would be, or how much I keep think "I'm the Juggernaut!" when I do. :LZSexcite:

Well, the Danganronpa games are the biggest disappointment I've had playing mystery games. I've never had so much BS shoveled down my throat. They're an insult to intelligence.
OMG! There's a rat themed Steam profile wallpaper for 5k lunar tokens. I want it so badly!
