It's probably possible through scripting, but other than that, no it isn't. You can play a movie or cutscene when they begin a new game, though.

You could use a title screen skip and just start the game with one. I know there is at lest one of those scripts out for ace.

This involves editing the how to title populates and will most likly require a script. The best advice I can give if to take your movie and turn it into a "*.GIF" image. Then take the audio from the movie and import it as a BGM. Line them up and you have a movie in the opening. But, the new game screen will still be there.

Playing a movie before the title screen is not that hard.

Place an autorun event on an empty map and place the player starting point on that map

start the movie in it, after that transfer the player to the real start map (after a fade out or stuff) and use the event command return to title.

Place this in you script Editor(below materials and above main):



Code:
#==============================================================================
# ** SceneManager
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#  This module manages scene transitions. For example, it can handle
# hierarchical structures such as calling the item screen from the main menu
# or returning from the item screen to the main menu.
#==============================================================================
module SceneManager
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Execute
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  def self.run
    DataManager.init
    Audio.setup_midi if use_midi?
    self.run_map
    @scene.main while @scene
  end
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Run Map
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  def self.run_map
    DataManager.setup_new_game
    $game_map.autoplay
    SceneManager.goto(Scene_Map)
  end
end
It will bring you directly to the map instead of the titlescreen.

Stopping the moving by pressing a key is a bit more difficult, since it's not reacting while playing a movie...

I don't know about that.

PS: I think Ace doesn't play gif files...

Heya! I'm new in here and I'm not sure where should I put my question but this topic is kinda same as mine question.

I was wondering is it possible to put a video under the title menu. I mean instead using a image background there would be a video!

I would so love to animate my main character and game logo in the backgroud!

I'm using RPG Maker VX ACE.

Thanks! :)

If there is a way to make a background video title screen would be terrific just like Asura's Wrath[XBOX 360]

I don't really get Mobychan's solution... When I use that script, it plays the intro, goes to the title screen, and when I hit "new game", it just replays the intro again. How do I change the starting position?

My plan after learning to make my voice girly "Wow! You sounds cute!" "But actually I'm a man!" "Nooooo!!!" hehehe...
I get haunted from bugs that emit a terrible stench after being killed.
At first, I was going to put player objectives on the screen labeling it as "Helpful voices"... But that's dumb, I have a madness system. It will simply whisper objectives.... I mean they're probably objectives. The voices wouldn't lie right? They're friendly, and ...helpful. So clearly you should do what they say. Just watch the dark corners of your screen for advice and it will all work out! :LZSexcite:
