Best way to hide the main menu?

#1 Post by NocturneLight » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:55 pm

Is there a good way to hide the title, the start, load, preference and all the other buttons on the main menu, and its text box?

On startup, I'm trying to hide all of that, display a transformation using an image, then re-show all of those buttons and whatnot.

Use the before_main_menu label and apply your transform there.

Sorry, I cannot find it in the documentation.
