Initialising Main Menu before the map?


I’m just going to get straight to it, most people use the main menu within the level, so the level is loaded and the pawn is spawned, would it be possible to show the main menu BEFORE the level is loaded/character is spawned, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

Make a menu map.

That sounds about right, what would be the way to load the actual map though? So when I press “Play” the map is loaded.

You really want to load menu before the whole Level is loaded?
Way to that I would then make the map have the Menu only, then the Level/Gameplay map I would stream inside the menu map on button click.
There’s docs about level streaming somewhere in Learn section.

Thanks a bunch!
