    Bootskin for RR users

    Here's a fairly simple bootskin I made for my computer with the Road Runner Logo to represent the amazing front end we have here. This uses Stardock's Bootskin program to change the image rather than messing with kernels.

    Download Here:

    RR Car PC Bootskin

    Also, on Stardock's site:

    wincustomize.com bootskins (already over 350 downloads, and it's only been up for less than a week.)

    Screenshot:


    This is the .jpg version of the 4 bit bmp.

    Enjoy!

    I think it adds that little touch to the system. Anyone in the car while the PC boots will see this and realize the computer was designed for the car. Plus it recognizes all the hard work that goes into this hobby with the RR logo. I've got a couple more, but this one pertained more to those that view these threads.

    My computer boots fast enough that I didn't want to mess with all the issues we have with resuming from hibernate. But for the first short few seconds, it shows and then RR starts up. I'll be installing remote start as it get's closer to the end of summer so the PC will already be on by the time I get to the car, and this screen wouldn't even be seen. It's an easy enough thing to do though to make it just that much more unique.

    Any other comments or suggestions? There's over 350 total downloads from both sites, so there's gotta be something to say about it...
