Hello,

I'm new to VNM and was trying to learn more about scripting by clicking the help manual. Is it outdated for some codes? I tried to follow the "Example Custom Title" screen tutorial.

This was the example provided:
JavaScript:
ui.UIManager.layouts.titleLayout = {
  "type": "ui.FreeLayout",
  "frame": [0, 0, Graphics.width, Graphics.height],
  "controls": [
      {
          "type": "ui.Image",
          "image": "bg-generic",
          "frame": [0, 0, "100%", "100%"]
      }
  ]
}

It's supposed to show the generic bg in the folders upon loading the test game. However all I get is still a black screen. I just copy pasted that code into the appropriate folder as instructed. I did noticed that creating a new project, the code looks a lot different for the image object key.

I'm not really good at programming, so any answers is appreciated if the manual is a bit outdated or not. If so, where can I find the latest one.

Hi, from what I see the code looks good. have you tried restarting the computer? when you install new fonts or make some big changes sometimes you have to restart the whole computer (and sometimes the change doesn't even appear after that).
Anyway, I almost never touch the code and customize the game completely, if you don't do much coding you don't have to worry because you can do everything without coding.

That's good to know. I was following the guide's example to get a better sense of the software and how to better customize it.
