RPG Maker VX Ace
Title Rearranger

I have the tendency to write test code, and sometimes I want to see the results without having to go through the main game. At other times, I just want to add new functionality to the title screen, for example, to have a settings menu, or to show a credits screen.

Which is why I made this script. Because I'm a programmer, ergo, because I'm lazy.

This script generally is plug-and-play, and therefore requires nothing much. All you have to do is follow the instructions of the part that can be modified safely, which I hope is clear enough to understand. After that it's just running the script.

This script adds aliases for several methods. If you are sure no method that is used by other scripts get overridden, you can place it anywhere, otherwise, make sure this script is loaded after any other script overriding these methods, otherwise this script stops working.

  • class Window_TitleCommand
    • make_command_list
  • class Scene_Title
    • create_command_window

# As I picked this license, you are free to share this script through any

# hang it in the bathroom as toilet paper. Well, not selling it on eBay, that's
# a dick move, but you are still free to redistribute the work.

#
# Personally, when used in commercial games, I prefer you would use the second
# option. Not only will it actually give me more name recognition in real
# life, which also works well for my portfolio, it will also look more
# professional. Also, do note that I actually care about capitalization if you
# decide to use my username, meaning, capital C, capital X, capital J, lower
# case k. Yes, it might seem stupid, but it's one thing I absolutely care
# about.
#
# Finally, if you want my endorsement for your product, if it's good enough
# and I have the game in my posession, I might endorse it. Do note that if you
# give me the game for free, it will not affect my opinion of the game. It
# would be nice, but if I really did care for the game I'd actually purchase
# it. Remember, the best way to get any satisfaction is if you get people to
# purchase the game, so in a way, I prefer it if you don't actually give me
# a free copy.
