This script allows for an easy custom picture menu. It can be modified to make several menus.

(click to show/hide)
Place above main in the script editor.

Instructions
Just make pictures on any graphic program, and name them appropriately.
You can change what scenes the menu accesses by reading the comments.

Compatibility
Doesn't modify anything, so it shouldn't have any issues.

Credits and Thanks

  • Moghunter for his main menu script
  • Me for removing much of the code to make a menu base menu.

Author's Notes
Remember, just because you use the menu to acess the items menu, doesn't mean that the items menu will return to this menu on exit. You have to change that in scene_item, or scene_whatever else. Also, the graphics in the demo SUCK dont use them please :) they would look bad in any game lol.
They are simply to show how the menu works.
Be creative when making your menu :)

Very cool, I always wanted to figure this out. This adds a whole 'nother level of custom to your game.
The permanent solution for your problem would be to stop hanging out with stupid people.

now, if you add the options to position the pictures (if it isn't there already, I only looked at the listed features) this script will be awesome. *Moves*

WOW first wtf lol I thought this post didn't go through I barely saw it in the replies post :P. Second its actually easy to position the pictures, just get the 640x480 picture and draw your menu anywhere on it. The screen is 640x480 in most xp games, so the picture just covers the whole screen. That means no matter where you want your menu, you can have it there :) you can even make them jump around, change color, or even change backgrounds completely if you place a picture behind the buttons in the same image. There's alot you can do :P but like i said creativity is the key, and really your only limit.(besides not going left to right that is)

Just to show an example of what can be made :P
(click to show/hide)

Took around 1 hour yesterday and like 20 minutes today to put in the status boxes. I used only this script (and some general scripting knowlege) to make this fully animated menu. I thought I was done, but I just realised that I still need the map name lol. Either way, it goes to show that nice looking menus can be made with imagination.

Edit: btw the status boxes(box with green and blue lines) can't be finished till I finish the battle system lol hp/mp is based on a variable and I haven't decided that
