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.
The Old Guard is at His Limit. The time is near to usher in the New Guard.

The Great Horror is soon to be free.

Clarevine is the key.


"Unsound Minds: The Clarevine Epoch" is a yuri visual novel that shatters english visual novel norms and aims to blend Christianity and the Cthulhu Mythos to tell a deep and dark story that you'll enjoy.

Use the before_main_menu label and apply your transform there.

Sorry, I cannot find it in the documentation.

No, sorry! You must be mistaking me for someone else.
