Jump Straight to Game - No Main Menu

#1 Post by rioka » Thu Mar 10, 2011 9:15 pm

I just want to know if it's possible and if it is, what do I have to do to make it happen?

Basically, a save and load button will be available in-game at all times. I do not want the main menu to load at all. With that said, you can actually do a lot with this if you can bypass the main menu... I mean, now you can make an animated main menu although it's just technically already in the game... C:

Yes, that would be quite useful... For a number of reasons.
I'm not sure, but I think main_menu was secretly a label... Maybe try declaring a label main_menu with a jump, see if that works.
I may be confusing it with something else though.

EDIT:
I just looked something up, and there is a workaround that should definitely work.
Put a jump in label splashscreen... It'll jump around the main menu into your game.
Your player will still be able to get to the main menu from the game menu though.

Code: Select all

label splashscreen:
    $ renpy.pause(0)
    jump start
