Area before Character Select?
« on: Sep 08, 17, 09:01:42 AM »

Is it possible to make an area that exists before the character selection screen.

So process would be

1 - World selection - Enter World
2 - Splash area as shown in the attached image - Press Play or Login
3 - Proceed to character selection area

Seeing how the selection is called in script, it appears that another section could be called in front of the select area.

I haven't looked recently, but I thought it was hard-coded in the engine to always start at the character select.

Regardless, there is no reason you can't have the character select area start out with that "splash area" menu and proceed from there.

Yah that is what i had figured it being hard coded to be the default area.
