packmenu minecraft mod

PackMenu Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2 allows the user to change the way the Minecraft Main Menu looks. It was developed as a replacement to Custom Main Menu in Minecraft 1.15+. (PackMenu lets users define additional menu buttons using a JSON format. Buttons are loaded as objects from a resource pack. Each button must be defined in its own file.)


  • Changing the background image of the Main Menu
  • Rearranging or disabling any menu elements, such as the title image, splash text, and the panorama fade.
  • Creation of custom buttons, and through that, the ability to completely overhaul the buttons on the menu.  Buttons are created using JSON files, with the defaults shipped with the provided resource pack.
  • Display a custom logo separate from the background.  This logo can have splash text attached to it, and can draw from a custom splash text list instead of the defaults.
    Creation of a custom background slideshow, using any number of images.
  • Creation of a custom panorama by overriding the vanilla panorama assets.

PackMenu uses a resource pack to load its textures.  This resource pack is located at <gamedir>/packmenu/, or at <gamedir>/packmenu/resources (as a folder) if enabled in the config.
This means you can also use PackMenu to load any textures that your modpack may require for any reason.

Important Resource Paths (for overriding things):

  • The location of the Custom Background Image is assetspackmenutexturesguibackground.png.  This image should be 1920×1080.
  • Buttons, by default, use the texture sheet assetsminecrafttexturesguiwidgets.png. However, this is used by non-main menu buttons, so overriding it is not advisable.  Instead, you can point buttons at packmenu’s copy of that file assetspackmenutexturesguiwidgets.png and override that one.
  • Buttons are loaded from assets<any domain>buttons. Any json files in such a directory will be treated as if it were a button (similar to advancements or recipes, but in this directory).
