i wanna ask first, as an absolute antitalentum to programming : how to do that?

as i figured out, there is something to do in Reaper.ini (C:/Documents and Settings/User/Application Data/Reaper/ )

open it for editing, and..?

****

i'll wait for White Tie to give us some nice fresh idea (though i liked all his work he gave us before)

...and you add a line: "splashimage=D:\Program Files\REAPER\SPLASH reaper_htime.bmp" Note: It has to be a bmp file. Enjoy !

add it the top of the ini file, the second line after "[REAPER]"

it doesn't work if you add it the bottom

I think your file name is simply too long. Your PNG (converted to BMP at the same resolution) works peachy for me with a short file name.



Though I also added the line to the top of my ini as Youn suggested.

The file name doesn't make a difference here, I tested a much longer filename and it also worked.

actually this scythe and the skull (and the background too) was created by Maxwell Atoms (The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy)

i did just a quick preview. i've collected more funny pictures to try out as a spash (featuring Grim, Billy in Grim's costume, Grim as a Hollywood star, etc..)

i love that cartoon.

Billy is my hero.

Default Splash

Made two splashes with a bit of a web 2.0 theme, the shiny yadiyada. Too bad Reaper loads so fast there's no time watch the custom splashes ;-) The gif format makes the transitions ugly, sorry.

Whoa! DAntilla -- those two splash screens look GREAT!

Those would be nice for a default theme for Reaper for the distribution package, among other things, because they have a nice clean, professional look to them that identifies Reaper as a precision tool for audio, and also has a look that nobody could 'hold against' Reaper. (Though a few people with sharpish eyes might prefer to see a higher end console than what is shown in that picture. )

The first one of these is awesome! Clean, contemporary and cool. Gets my vote for being the default splash

Very nicely done. I do, however, feel like I'm on a canoe trip, looking over the water at a small island on a pond!

Very nice, and very pro like!

I would like the background in the same style as well,
Then you could just dream away in the middle of things.

I like splash number 1 of all the ones here (in a main stream sense... I still like the cartoons though as I am 28 going on about 9)

Default all business splash screen

...here's a couple of versions of a basic idea.





the black band at the bottom is where the loading text messages appear.

I should probably improve the graphic for the fader, but it's a start.

I think the splash screen should be a picture of Justin with his "I love toxic waste" t-shirt

Hey, I just made two splash screens to suit my taste:



and for those of you who like to keep things a bit cleaner:


Here are links to the BMP versions so you won't have to convert them yourselves:

http://untied.dk/misc/Cyb-dirty.bmp
http://untied.dk/misc/Cyb-clean.bmp

---EDIT---

Oh sorry! I forgot to thank DAnttila for the fader picture. The images where also inspired by his two images, with the reflection at the bottom.
Didn't mean to just steal your work there without at least giving credit; I'm sorry.
