WHDLoad splash screen - requirements

Hi,

(Edit: Obviously, I meant 'splash' screen!)

Please can somebody tell me what the requirements are for the WHDLoad splash screen to appear when a game is launched.

I have a minimal startup-sequence and can load in to Workbench, with NewIcons seemingly working. However, when I launch a WHDLoad game from icon, the splash screen does not appear. With the same game in ClassicWB LITE, the splash screen appears.

I know there are specific WHDLoad options for the splash screen. But as I said, with the same game (same directory and files) in ClassicWB LITE, it works. But not in my minimal setup.

What are the requirements for the splash screen to appear?

Cheers!

Thread title updated from 'spash'

Regarding your question; that's a weird one indeed... even with a self-booting / bare-bones WHDLoad .HDF I've created i.e. no OS files / libs etc. the splash screen always appears.

You can test / look at this as an example:

Are you sure you are using the same WHDLoad.prefs on both systems?

You've hit the nail right on the head!

I thought they were both default, and I had just changed the DefaultKey option.

The one in the minimal setup was using a config with:

ConfigDelay=0

So that was why it was not showing, no matter what I did.

I've spent ages to figure out the difference between the two setups. I feel really stupid now...

Thank you for your help.

Is it me or whdload splash screen could use shortcut keys / joystick to be able to tick some boxes when 2 joysticks are connected? annoying to plug/unplug mouse just to set those setting boxes.

Yes - I wish it had native joystick support to cycle through the options and select/unselect it.

A workaround for the moment is to use something like JoyMouse and JConMousePro to allow the joystick to control the mouse.
