Learn How To Make Secret Thumbnails!

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, but today I finally used it! Have you ever made a game without a start screen, but didn’t want the thumbnail to be gameplay? Well, all your future games can now have a secret thumbnail only you can access (and others who are smart enough to find out or look at code)! Here’s How:

Before you start playing you see this:

But, when you go in, you only see this:

I used a secret button that is almost invisible. When you press it, the thumbnail will pop up. If you want to learn more, visit the project:

If you look in the code, it will help you more! :D

Thanks for reading! Please give me credit if you ever use.

Nice tutorial. I usually just do the thumbnail flash like two milliseconds so it's unnoticeable.


Cool tutorial! :D

I've sometimes thought about doing this in my projects, but I always forget to. :stuck_out_tongue:

Also, I knew how to do this before seeing the tutorial, do I still have to give credit to you @Paydent12?

It didn't do anything when I tapped it...

I love this idea! I will really consider using this!

Awesome! I saw people use this on scratch!

Can I use this? I will give credit!



All you do in scratch is make an thumbnail of your choice and make it on the front forever, but when the game starts you make it invisible, it only works in scratch tho :confused:

Then why are you commenting it on the Hopscotch forums?
