Late congrats thecolclough
  You were destined for the splash screen.,1262.0.html

   I'm not having any luck with using the .dll for random splash screens, and doesn't work putting a 'splash.jpg' pic into the images folder either. Have tried every suggestion in this thread and, although i like thecolcloughs' image very much, i would really like to be able to change splash screens at will.
 Any other suggestions on how i might be able to do this?
 (Windows 7)

Up to V1.0 I always just loaded Anim8or to the desktop, because why not?  With V1.0 I created a folder that contains the Anim8or.exe file and the Anim8orSplash.dll file, and created a shortcut from the desktop like any other program.  This seems to work (also on W7) with a random splash screen loaded each time.

I found a bug in the rendering software that can cause this behavior. I will post it as soon as I get back home this Saturday.

For me it's intermittent. Most times I get one of the random screens, but sometimes I get a sort-of-pixelated uniform backdrop instead. I'm probably starting Anim8or somewhat differently when it fails (I usually just double-click on an existing .an8 file), but I'm not sure what the difference is.
