for a more clean and factory look, i propose RR use a new splashscreen.
I dont know how guino feels about splash screens or the thought of the logo being removed in place of custom logos etc. but thats up to him.
I would like to see something like the images below, with optional fadeaway.
The current splash i belive is hard coded inside RR.exe, so the only way to have multiple splash screens that users can pick from would be to have all of them embeded into the .exe (can get bloated) or open it up so you can use whatever you like and have a RR watermark that gets placed on it somewhere.
i have some examples below
guino: i also have a psd file with 8 different backgrounds
I never get to see the splash screen because I use "resume"... so is this something that a lot of users are after??
side note - LS I appreciate your skins... no question, keep up the good work...

thats a good point,Originally Posted by mgithens
but for the times when you dont resume or a fresh boot, it would still be nice. I never resume though, all i keep reading is this dosent work or that dosent work with various apps when you resume, plus my comp boots pretty fast.
I think the custom splash screen with watermark overlay is a great idea, and maybe the user can select from a couple different RR logos (embedded into the app) and/or a location to place it.
I use resume, so I don't see the flashscreen. But it is NOT a bad idea to have one. Well, go for it guino. Make thing look for PRO.
I can easily load an image (if present on the current skin) and display that as a banner screen. It'd probably require settings to define, position, font, size etc, for the startup information...
I'll allow for screen transitions later on.. I even started to work on it awhile ago, but it needs a bunch of work..
