Hey all, hoping someone here can help me out with a problem here. I need to remove the 'New Game' option from the title screen.
I'm using V's Awesome Options script, and I've tried editing it in a few different spots to achieve my desired effect.
If I try commenting out

  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Create Command List
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  def make_command_list
This line---> add_command(Vocab::new_game, :new_game) 
  add_command(Vocab::continue, :continue, continue_enabled)
  add_command(Vocab::shutdown, :shutdown)
  end

under HorzCmmdWin Or

 #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Create Command List
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  def create_command_window
    @command_window = Window_TitleCommand.new
    @command_window.x = V_OPTS::Specs::Command_Window_x_position
    @command_window.y = V_OPTS::Specs::Command_Window_y_position
    Font.default_size = 20
This line---> @command_window.set_handler(:new_game, method(:command_new_game))
    @command_window.set_handler(:continue, method(:command_continue))
    @command_window.set_handler(:shutdown, method(:command_shutdown))
  end

Under Scene_Title in the script, I get an error: Script 'Window_Command' line 74: NoMethodError occurred. undefined method '[]' for nil:NilClass


 #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Get Activation State of Command
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  def command_enabled?(index)
This is line 74--->@list[index][:enabled]
  end


Now, if I just comment out

  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Create Horizontal Command List
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  def create_horizontal_command_window
    @hrzcommand_window = HorzCmmdWin.new
    @hrzcommand_window.x = V_OPTS::Specs::Command_Window_x_position
    @hrzcommand_window.y = V_OPTS::Specs::Command_Window_y_position
    Font.default_size = 20
This line--->@hrzcommand_window.set_handler(:new_game, method(:command_new_game))   
    @hrzcommand_window.set_handler(:continue, method(:command_continue))
    @hrzcommand_window.set_handler(:shutdown, method(:command_shutdown))
  end

also under the Scene_Title section, it makes the New Game option inoperable. It shows up, I can click on it, but it does nothing and goes nowhere. This is doable, but far from ideal. Editing the Scene_Title and Window_TitleCommand scripts does nothing as I assume V's script overrides those, does that sound right?

Anyhoo, is there something simple I'm missing here or should I take what I have and be happy with it?

    add_command(Vocab::continue, :continue, continue_enabled)

Editing the default scripts has no effect, I believe because V's script overrides them or something.

  add_command(Vocab::continue, :continue, continue_enabled)
  add_command(Vocab::shutdown, :shutdown)

just found a new way to do this


  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Create Command List
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------

  def make_command_list
  add_command("", :new_game, false)
  add_command(Vocab::continue, :continue, continue_enabled)
  add_command(Vocab::shutdown, :shutdown)
  end


replace the red text with original code

both also change in "V's Awesome Options script"

This did the trick! I'm getting rid of it in the 2nd and later volumes of the game because the player won't be starting a new game (trying to do so would cause it to error out). The game will only be accessible with a save from the prior volume, so to play volume 2 you'll need a game-end save from volume 1, in volume 3 you'll need one from volume 2, so on and so forth. Thanks for your help!
