How can I modify the home screen in Minetest?

by johansprojects » Tue Sep 10, 2019 00:13

Greetings, I am using an online translator to write this post, I apologize in case something is misspelled.

I come to this forum with the intention of learning how to modify the home screen in Minetest, I am a designer and I would like to make a different design to the start menu.

I enclose a screenshot in case it is not clear which menu I want to modify:

I would like to leave a fixed background image, and change the appearance of the menu for a more stylized one, in that case, I want to know which files I need to modify.

I hope you can help me, thank you very much!

From the api documentation
https://github.com/minetest/minetest/bl ... pi.txt#L70
api wrote:Menu images
-----------

Games can provide custom main menu images. They are put inside a `menu`
directory inside the game directory.

The images are named `$identifier.png`, where `$identifier` is one of
`overlay`, `background`, `footer`, `header`.
If you want to specify multiple images for one identifier, add additional
images named like `$identifier.$n.png`, with an ascending number $n starting
with 1, and a random image will be chosen from the provided ones.

Thank you very much, I already tried it but it only changes the background in the initial screen, when you press in another section of the menu the background is changed back to the original that has the clouds in movement, is there any other way to change it?

I would also like to be able to modify the design of the menu (attached image), but I do not know which files I should modify, I hope you can help me : )
