How to Use a GIF for Your Title Screen - So you don't have to suffer like I did

Have you ever wanted to use a GIF as your title screen but realized essentials doesn't support this for some reason? Well I have the method for you right here!

MAJOR WARNING: SAVE YOUR GIF TITLED "splash" TO THE "Pictures" FOLDER AND NOT "Titles". FAILING TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN A BLACK SCREEN.

Now with that out of the way, let's get on with the script!​

I'm having an error when put this script in. It says
Script 'Scene_Intro line 94: NameError occurred
uninitialized constant IntroEventScene::PokemonLoad_Scene

Would you know what the problem could be? Thank you.

Nevermind I fixed it. All I had to do was get rid of the underscore in PokemonLoad_Scene, which is very weird.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. But do you happen to have the Multiple Save Files script installed? It was built on an earlier version of essentials and since that time, the syntax has changed. Glad you got it working and enjoy the script!

I am using an earlier version of essentials for my game, so I assume that script is in there. Thank you for the reply.

Just came across this about a week ago! Amazing resource since I put hours in perfecting each frame of my title screen.. I’ve been messing around for a bit and I cannot seem to find a way to delay the music until after the intro slides? My title is dependent on the timing of the music. Should I just edit the music file to have a length of “quiet time” at the beginning?

Try moving the pbBGMPlay line to somewhere in the the OpenSplash function, should do the trick
