I've been considering using the generic pause menu along with a few added menuitem() entries to save some space. I'm not crazy about the entry to close the menu being labeled "Continue," when I've got a custom item just below it labeled "Load Last Save," (specifically on my title screen and my player death screen.
Is there a way to change the language of the default pause menu items, or even hide that "Continue" entry altogether in this use case?
Well, you could make a custom pause screen!
This line should go in your _update() function. This suppresses the attempt to bring PICO-8's default pause menu. If you modify it like so:
if(band(btn(),64)!=0) poke(0x5f30,1) mode="pause"
it would change states (assuming you even use a state system).
P.S.: If you do use a state system, consider putting the above line in your game update or title update function to prevent activating the default menu when already in the custom menu.
