VisuMZ EventTitleScreen.png

EventTitleScene Example2.gif

For those who feel compelled to create their own custom title scene using in-game maps and events, this plugin will replace Scene_Title with a new dedicated map scene to allow such a thing to happen. Customize it however you can within your abilities and utilize the full power of RPG Maker MZ's eventing system. Just don't forget to use an Autorun event to kick things off, alright?

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Dedicated map scene to use for custom map title scenes.
  • Going to the Game End screen to return to the title screen will take the player back to the dedicated map scene.
  • Customize which map to use and where on the map to display.
  • Determine the player's position, visibility, facing direction, and whether or not followers are shown, too.
  • Disable or enable movement on the title scene if you want.
  • Plugin Commands that facilitate the New Game, Continue, and Options command as seen before in the title screen.


This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.

Tier 4

This plugin is a Tier 4 plugin. Place it under other plugins of lower tier value on your Plugin Manager list (ie: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

This is to ensure that your plugins will have the best compatibility with the rest of the VisuStella MZ Plugin library.

Major Changes

This plugin adds some new hard-coded features to RPG Maker MZ's functions. The following is a list of them.



Autosaving is disabled on the event title scene map. This is to prevent any instances of the player loading into an unintended map by accident.


Movement Disable

Through the Plugin Parameters, you can disable input and mouse movement from the player for the dedicated event title scene.


Menu and Debug Disable

On the dedicated event title scene, calling the Main Menu and debug menu is disabled to prevent errors.

Those using the VisuStella MZ Core Engine will now have the "Title Picture Buttons" imported into the Event Title Scene. They can be interacted the same way. The picture buttons will appear above all else so keep that in mind for how you position them.


Text Codes


Text Codes are used in the Show Text event command. They are used to display things that text normally can't produce on its own, such as colors, get the name of a specific actor, change icons, and more.

RPG Maker MZ already comes with text codes of its own:

\V[n] Will be replaced with the value of the nth variable.
\N[n] Will be replaced with the name of the nth actor.
\P[n] Will be replaced by the name of the nth (arranged order) party member.
\G Will be replaced by the currency unit.
\C[n] Draw the subsequent text in the nth color. Text color conforms to the contents of the [Window.png] system image.
\I[n] Draws the nth icon.
\FS[n] Changes the text font size to 'n'.
\{ Increases the text by 1 step.
\} Decreases the text by 1 step.
\\ Replaced with the backslash character.
\$ Open the gold window.
\. Wait for 1/4 second.
\| Wait for 1 second.
\! Wait for button input.
\> Display remaining text on same line all at once.
\< Cancel the effect that displays text all at once.
\^ Do not wait for input after displaying the next.

The following are text codes that you may use with this plugin.
