Title Skip 3

Introduction

If you're familiar with Title Skip scripts, you should be familiar with the functionality here and the opportunity such scripts allows for developers to build their own introductions. Unlike most Title Skip scripts (and even my older ones), no methods were overwritten.

Features

  • No overwritten methods, ensuring decent compatibility. (It's not so much a feature, but I'd like to think of it as a selling point.)
  • You can battle test. (Certain Title Skip scripts do not do this.)
  • Seemingly a standard in Title Skip scripts, this script will now launch the Scene_Load scene should it detect a saved file. It can be turned off.
Screenshots

Video coming soon.

Script

Title Skip 3 (RMXP)

Instructions

It's very straightforward.

Author's Notes

The goal behind this version of my Title Skip script was to make sure I wasn't overriding any of RPG Maker's default methods. It was a pretty tough challenge so I had to come up with some odd ideas to pull it off.

The trick here wasn't to skip the title screen, but to nullify several elements of the title screen such as visuals and audio. To do this, I needed to find a way to make the title scene automatically use the command_new_game method without making a sound while hiding the title graphic and the command window.

It turns out that I had to make the @command_window and @sprite instance variables of Scene_Title accessible, alias the Initialize method of Window_Command to include an if conditional to check if $scene is a Scene_Title for the purpose of making @command_window and @sprite invisible.

I'm not so sure if this works with the SDK but if it does then colour me surprised! I'm proud of this considering that unlike my last two versions of this script, this is NOT a rewrite of Scene_Title.

I actually needed this. How exactly do you use it though?

Copy and paste this script below Scene_Debug and above Main. :)

Right, but how do I pick what map to use for it to start on?

It goes right into the start point you set up through the editor.

While was working on one of the monsters that will appear in my horor game I may have made harold a Lovecraftian monster. (I used his head to keep things aligned.)
Finally got my website fixed and the security sorted so it's been a productive day. Can I go to sleep now? I mean... I don't need to work right?
It's always a good idea to refresh yourself on what your plugins do. I'm working on a map with opening walls, and I was about to tear my hair out over how much image editing and hand-constructing of autotiles I'd have to do, when I looked again and saw @Shaz 's Tile Changer could copy areas from another map.
"sorry it took me so long to respond" - can we please agree not to say that anymore unless it actually took a long time?! (Like 36hrs at least) I mean, I'm running out of funny responses here xD
Ugh... 4:53AM over here and I can't sleep so why not just game make.
