Summary0005659: Support for caching splash screen
DescriptionThis screen is functional but ugly. https://springrts.com/mantis/file_download.php?file_id=3517&type=bug

Ideally game developers would be able to replace the black background with a screenshot. Since nothing is cached the screenshot may have to be a fixed file path relative to the base directory. To accommodate a screenshot the red text should be smaller, in a lower corner of the screen, less technical, and white.

Right now, my motivation to add splashscreen support is outweighed by my desire to make firepluk gouge out his eyeballs with a rusty spoon. Send in some decent splashscreen examples (allowing room for the text to be positioned center-bottom, possibly resized but with *unaltered* phrasing) and this may change.

This ticket contains many variations of a logo on a black background: https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K/issues/2416

How unaltered do you want your phrasing? It would look better without asterikes as bullet points and with capital letters at the start of each phrase.

At the risk of opening a bikeshed, I settled on the asterisks and non-capitalized subphrases because other styles looked unbalanced. An interesting background distracting attention from the text will do much to reduce these details to irrelevance anyway.

this is implemented now.

I'll leave including it in 104 to popular vote.
