[solved] How do I make the game start from the menu again + adding "resume game" option (android)?

#1 Post by Nanahs » Sun Oct 07, 2018 10:37 am

First of all, thank you so much everyone who helps here. I've already made pc games, but it's my first time doing something for Android. So I have lots of questions to make hah Maybe someone has the same doubts as I have, so this can be helpful for more people :)

The thing is, on Android the game is saved automatically when you quit. Which is awesome.
But when you open the game again, it starts exactly the scene where you stopped.

*I wanted the game to always open the menu first when the person click on the app again.
*And add a "resume game" option in the menu.

Is it possible?

Thank you :)

Try to quit the game using "quit" button - not the device's home-button or so to start from main menu on next run of the application. And you need to create this quit-button in main menu first (the same button as it made for pc-version).
As for resuming the game - check the PyTom's article about saving on quit (viewtopic.php?f=51&t=47328&p=496680#p496680).

Thank you so much! I'll try that :)
