Splash screen

Post by King of Worms » Tue Jul 24, 2018 12:14 pm

In short, can we have a splash screen before the game is loaded to the main menu?

Ive found nice screen and upscaled it, for a general idea... we can ofc use something else. Maybe something based on Interkarmas avatar (workshop)

I came to this idea when I saw that the game takes a while to load when I place a big mod there. But it always takes few moments, mod or not...

Could look something like this:

I place rhymers post here form the other thread, as he did kind of a(n amazing) daggerfall workshop intro in this video. Not a splash screen like you intend, but still another creative way for our community.

I think that splash screen looks gorgeous.

The intro video is also great but they are different things and not mutually exclusive, right? The splash screen is supposed to be shown during the time that the game unavoidably takes to load, while the intro video has a fixed (longer) duration but should be skippable if you have already seen it and just want to start fast.

Exactly, splash screen is used before you even get in the game.
Definition - What does Splash Screen mean?

A splash screen is a particular screen on a website or piece of software that displays while the application or other item is loading. After the load is complete, the user is generally taken to another more functional screen. The splash screen is generally just a display screen to orient users and give them something to look at while hardware is working to present the software to them.
