Based on the replies to my "poll" ( viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19673
) I've designed a new load screen.
Like the old AA one, it will not feature any ingame elements because of the crazy number of different screen resolutions and aspect ratios that people use. I was hoping that there would at least be a majority of people using a widescreen 16:9 or 16:10 resolution, but it seems people play windowed or have a 4:3 screen just as often.
I didn't wait long enough to get definitive results but TBH if more than 10% of the people who see the AA load screen see everything distorted, I'd rather just go with something safe. Besides, I've never needed to use flashy load screens in the past.
Comments are welcome.

It will look best on widescreen monitors, which I believe are only going to get more popular. On 4:3 it will look a little mushed, but it's only text so that's OK.
"Beta" will of course be replaced with an actual version number. I also plan on adding a very dark metal texture to the background, nothing fancy.
