    Multiple Title Screens for Pokemon Essentials




    The following is an add-on to Pokemon Essentials. The point of this add-on is to bundle multiple animated title screens, resembling the title screens of the official Pokemon Games.

    The settings for the script are pretty simple, and are explained in the comments of the script itself, but for convenience I will list them here:

    SCREENSTYLE sets the style of the title screen you want to use
    SPECIES sets the species whose cry will be played (and whose sprite will be displayed for the gen 5 style)
    RESTART_TITLE decides whether or not your game restarts after a certain period of time has passed on the title screen
    PLAY_ON_DEBUG decides whether or not the title screen will load even if $DEBUG is on

    There are also multiple BGM config variables, so be sure to look at them.

    Currently featured Title Screens:All of the styles are compatible with stock Essentials, and Klein's and Venom's kits. The Title Screens will unpack into full DS styles, should a DS layout be detected in your game.

    The script and resources are plug-and-play. Just copy and paste the script above main, and the resources in the appropriate folders.

        These are great. I'll definitely use these for my game and give full credit. If I could say one thing, when I tried to download either the script or the resources McAfee kept saying that this website could be dangerous or something like that. So what I'm asking is, are these downloads safe?

          McAfee thinks most sites / resources are not safe due to it's done by an Unknown Developer.... hate that anti-virus ...
          They are safe to download , I have added this into my game already along with other new features.

              This is pretty amazing. I made some tweaks naturally to customize it for my own game, and it works like a charm.

              Thanks for this script it is greatly appreciated.

                  Just curious, say I wanted to show a Gif file instead of a Png for the Pokemon image or whatever.
                  What would I need to do to get the animated file to actually display? For me currently, it doesn't at all if it's a Gif, however I know that essentials supports them for other scripts.
                  Am I missing something?
                  (P.s hope I'm not like necro-posting or something?)

                    Update!

                    I have updated the main script, and the resource pack to add a brand new Title Screen style. Set your SCREENSTYLE variable to 4, to check it out.


                    If you have any questions how to utilize the various quirks of the new Screen Style, let me know.

                      Update!


                      So I've created yet another Title Screen style, this time resembling the gen 5 games. The main script and resource pack have been updated. Now some of you may or may not like this, but this style is a bit different - it is fully automated. The background colour and sprite get determined by the SPECIES constant. The scrolling pattern is easily changed by swapping the graphics, but the complete background displayed gets rendered drawn by actual png and then coloured by the code. Just giving you a heads up should you wish to edit the titlescreen yourself.

                            Another day, another title screen. This one is probably the most complex out of all of them. There is an unfortunate side-effect to all those fancy visuals. On resolutions greater than the default 1.0, you'll experience some frame-rate issues. Since applying angles to large sprites is a big No No in RMXP.
                            As always, I've updated the main script, and resource pack.

                                I've done some tweaks to the main script and resource pack, to further improve the aesthetics of the Gen 6 styled Title Screen. I've also added a secret little thing for those of you who are using this script alongside my EBS system.
                                (HINT: Play the Gen 6 title screen, and let it play all the way).

                                Special graphics for the Gen 6 Project also added.

                                  Luka, this is awesome man. Really appreciate this script and I think it is a really nice one for Essentials and the community. Title screens are an area where there is little being discussed, shared, or publicly developed - this resource is fantastic at filling that gap.

                                    Code:
                                    # Config value for selecting title screen style
                                    SCREENSTYLE = 6
                                    # 1 - FR/LG
                                    # 3 - R/S/E
                                    # 4 - D/P/PT
                                    # 5 - B/W
                                    # 6 - X/Y
                                    It is in the first part of the script, you cannot possibly miss it if you look at the script.

                                    Change SCREENSTYLE = 6 to SCREENSTYLE = 5.

                                    Follow the rest of the script to do other changes you want to make. Really simple.

                                      I should have been more specific....... The BW Essentials like v3_1_1 It contains the Dual Screen module. When the title screens are played the are in the middle of the screen. Sorry for my bad miscommunication skills.

                                        I see why you were confused, WorldSlayer, but he did say "BW Essentials", not just BW.

Title screens are an area where there is little being discussed, shared, or publicly developed - this resource is fantastic at filling that gap.
                                          I too haven't seen many TS resources around here. In fact, I just know of the one tutorial by Rayd, and that's all.

                                          You're completely in luck my man. I'm working on pushing this script to being the most extensive Title Screen resource for Essentials. And just as it happens, I devoted a large chunk of my day today, working on said resource. DS compatibility was one of the things that popped into my mind, and I've actually made the Title Screens super easy to adapt to whatever DS kit you may happen to use. There are two new constants
                                          • SCREEN_HEIGHT # Height of a single screen
                                          • VIEWPORT_OFFSET # Y amount that separates the top and bottom screens
                                          Now, you can leave both of these at their stock values, and the screens will be formatted for proper single screen (and top DS screen) automatically. But...some title screens (gen 5 and 6) style, have built in DS compatibility, so if you set the VIEWPORT_OFFSET to 16, you will have a proper DS styled Title Screen. I'll probably do more DS compatibility for the already existing styles in the future, but for now these 2 will suffice.

                                          In order to use this system upgrade, you'll need both the new script and the new resource pack.

                                              The main script and resource pack are updated again. The update is not huge, I've just done some tweaks to various parts of the script. The noteworthy thing is that the Gen 3 and 4 styles have been reworked for full DS support. The gen 3 style takes some visual queues from ORAS when in DS mode. DS compatibility for both Klein's and Venom's kits are now built in. So should you wish to use the title screens in any of those, the styles will automatically adjust themselves.
