    As a diehard fan of old style gaming, Id love to know if one can get it to show a little intro animation before your games title screen pops up? Im just a sucker for these sorta things and would love to know if a coder would give this minor request *or so I hope it is , not a coding guy* Be really appreciated and somthing id love seen done cause essentially anyone would be able to use it who wants to use it.

    Yes you can, and there are scripts already that will do this. Take a look through the Master Script List, or do a search in the scripts forum.


    I've moved this thread to RGSS Script Requests (since I assume you don't really want to know IF it's possible - you want to know HOW). Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

    And if someone had said "yes, it IS possible", what would your next question be?


    Just realized your profile says you're using XP. So are you after an Ace script, or an XP script? XP scripts might be a bit harder to come by.

    An easy way to do this is to make the intro using some video editing software and save it as a movie. Then head overĀ here and get Zeus's video player for RPG Maker XP. Once you've got yourself set up, open up the script editor and click on the script labeled "main". Then at the top, underneath where it says "begin" just put the script call for the movie you made. It should be something like 'Graphics.play_movie("your_movie_name.avi")'. Then whenever you start the game it'll play your movie before bringing up the title screen.
