How do I change my start up and shut down screens?
I used to know this. Something about replacing the logo.sys file with the one you want as the startup screen... I wouldn't want to tell you the wrong thing though, maybe someone else *cough*fury*cough* could let you know.
depends on the windows version, that would apply to win9x, but in 2k etc its a bit different, i think its logos.sys or some deviant of the name for 9x, have not done it in about 4 years i'll have a look around.
Startup Logo.sys (only if a custom logo exists, such as Plus! installs; Else it is built in to IO.SYS). C:\
Please Wait... Logow.sys C:\windows
Its now safe... Logos.sys C:\windows
But ummm.. I still don't know how to change it..? <-- me
Heres a program that does the screen changes easily.
Take a .bmp file (or convert a .jpg or .gif to .bmp) and rename it to logo.sys (or logow or logos.sys, depending on what it is)
That's how you change it.
theres a special size (dimension wise) needed as well, fap i can't remember.
It's either 640x240 or 720x240, because it stretches the image out, length-wise, to 200%
640x240 then most likely, know its definetly not 720x240
still won't work.
Spirit, what OS are you running, if it's 2k or XP you have to turn off Windows File Protection.
Here's a program that will change the logo in XP
The images you use need to be 640x480 pixels and 16 Colors bitmaps. This program was written with XP in mind, but it works on 2k too.
She never did say what OS, did she?
Guess not, wonder if she's still working on it....
