Boot Picture ?

I used to know this one off by heart, but can someone please remind of how i get a boot picture up?. I know its just a command in the startup sequence, but ive completely forgotten it. Im also using ClassicWB Adv_SP so the startup sequence is a little different from the standard workbench one. So what is the command and on which line should it go?..

Send a message via ICQ to AMIGAZ
There's also ShowAmiga96 which is very nice but it requires Picasso96 2.1b to work properly

Any picture viewer can be used to show a boot pic. The challenge is to automatically stop the viewer when Workbench has loaded, but this can usually be achieved by a small script in WBStartup sending Ctrl-C or an ARexx command to the viewer.

If you prefer a special bootpic viewer, try one of these: http://www.aminet.net/search.php?que...path=util/boot

Ancient BootGirl comes to mind.

It's not on Aminet unfortunately, but it's on dozens of utility pack disks.

openaws and closeaws was a nice little tool as it showed the processor, kickstart, ram. And the C= logo .
