2017.2 Splash Screens

Postby Octal450 » Sat May 27, 2017 2:50 am

From the wiki:
http://wiki.flightgear.org/Changelog_2017.2

Misc/Uncategorized
A new, modern splash screen together with start-up tips.


Where is any information on these? I've looked through the wiki, and some aircraft, but can't find enough to actually make my own?

Kind Regards,
Josh

They're technically previews with a splash property set to true. Something like this

Code: Select all
<sim>
 <previews>
      <preview>
        <type>exterior</type>
        <splash type="bool">true</splash>
        <path>Pics/launch-splash01.png</path>
      </preview>
      <preview>
        <type>exterior</type>
        <splash type="bool">true</splash>
        <path>Pics/launch-splash02.png</path>
      </preview>
      <preview>
        <type>exterior</type>
        <splash type="bool">true</splash>
        <path>Pics/launch-splash03.png</path>
      </preview>
  </previews>
</sim>


is what you need. I think image aspect ratio is assumed to be fixed (?) - I've just done them in the same size as the default splashes.
