Sorry, I should have worded myself better, it doesn't go completely black, but the background, the part of the screen behind the command windows goes black. Here's a screenshot of how it looks like whenever I go to the menu:
And no, I posted this in the XP scripting section because I thought this could be fixed modifying the scripts, but I may be wrong, if that's the case then yeah, this thread should be moved.
If you are using RMXP, you posted in the right area. It is just confusing because your profile and the blurb under your avatar say you use VX Ace and you did not specify either in the title or in your post that you're using XP.
If you are using Ace, then yes, it's in the wrong forum.
What do you want it to do instead? Show an image of the map? That's probably easier to do in Ace because there are methods for it. I don't remember if XP has the same ability - I suspect not. You might find a script that's already written if you search around for it though. The RMRK forum has a lot of XP scripts.
You shouldn't need to use a command to trigger it. Something like that would just go into the scripts and work pretty much without configuration. Are there instructions where you found them, or instructions in the script itself? Did you take a good look at the script header?
If you'd posted links I would have been able to check them out straight away and tell you how to use them. Now I have to wait for you to post links, and then you have to wait for me (or someone else) to take a look at them and get back to you.
Oh, no, you don't want that at all if your only goal is to show the map as the background while in the menu.
That script puts all the menus onto the map. That's completely different to what you're talking about. You are after something that takes a snapshot of the map before going into a menu, and displays that image as the menu background.
Unfortunately all I can think of is to get a screenshot script and have it modified to not save the image, but to use it as the background on all your menus.
Unless you DO want to just go with the script above and bring up all the menus right on your map.
Oh, I don't want that menu, like you said, I want to have the map as a background, and if the only way of doing so is via a screenshot script then I'll have to search for one. Thanks for your help.
EDIT: Well, I found here a thread made by someone who tries to do the same I'm doing and seems to be doing pretty well so far, and I think I'd be using @spriteset = Spriteset_Map.new[SIZE=13.63636302948px] [/SIZE][SIZE=13.63636302948px]and [/SIZE]@spriteset.dispose[SIZE=13.63636302948px] for Scene_Menu, the problem is that I don't know where to place both of them or even if it'll be what I'm looking for.[/SIZE]
