Got the start screen functioning. The ‘start’ button displays the 5 level buttons. It seems simple but it gave me a bunch of trouble. If you hide objects (like the 5 level buttons) without saving the object somewhere, it can’t be found and you can’t show it any more. Also the logo was not showing up at all because the layer it was on was on the exact level as the camera. There are 2 fairly newbie mistakes I think.
What’s next: start programming the levels.
