Title images can do a lot to give your game a decent first impression. However, when they’re the same thing seen over and over during multiple loads, playthroughs, etc., they can get old pretty fast. This plugin gives you, the game developer, the ability to change the title screen image(s) to whatever you want during any point of the game you want, so that the next time your players return to the title screen, they’ll be treated with something new and refreshing!


Introduction


Title images can do a lot to give your game a decent first impression. However, when they’re the same thing seen over and over during multiple loads, playthroughs, etc., they can get old pretty fast. This plugin gives
you, the game developer, the ability to change the title screen image(s) to whatever you want during any point of the game you want, so that the next time your players return to the title screen, they’ll be treated with
something new and refreshing!


Instructions


Choosing what title screen image will appear is quite simple. By default, the image that will be shown will be the ones applied in the settings. But if you want to control it when the player has reached a certain point in your game, put in these plugin commands in an event to determine what images will be shown the next time your player views the title screen:

Plugin Commands:

ChangeTitle1 filename
ChangeTitle2 filename
– Replace ‘filename’ with the image’s filename found in your ‘titles1’ or ‘titles2’ folders respectively. Make sure the filename is exactly as it appears as it is case sensitive. Once an event runs this plugin command, the
next time the player visits the title screen, the new image(s) will appear.

ClearChangeTitle1
ClearChangeTitle2
– This will revert the Title1 or Title2 images back to default respectively. The player will see the default Title1/Title2 image that’s been applied in the game’s database settings.


Happy RPG Making!
