Max Menu Choices

#1 Post by TheChatotMaestro » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:52 pm

I know in theory they are unlimited.
But how many will fit on a screen?

I'm going to have a chapter select screen for a project I'm working on, and currently that's just being done by menu choices. (Yes, I know there's a better way. No, I'm not good enough to make that work yet.) What is the max number of menu choices I can set before they start to really overcrowd the screen?

That's GREATLY depend on your graphics, custo ization and screen size... a vertical tablet game host more than horizntal one.
Anyway, by using the standard GUI, 1280*720, I've noticed the screen look very crowded at 5 choices, and have 6 choices mess any eventual narrator line.
10 ? "RENPY"
20 GOTO 10

RUN
