Thanks for posting this. Great find.
That would suggest renaming the selected image to "*background" with the appropiate 1280x1024 resolution seen on the end before the ".jpg" extension if that is according to the native resolution of 1280x1024 seen on a particular system.

Here it would have to see "image_selected_background1440x900.jpg" without the underscores like a one word naming of "examplebackground1440x900.jpg" to see that work. But that allows for subsititution since the images there are only a few at this time for beta illustrative purposes.

In the 32bit 7000 build you would need to manually create the sub folders pointed to there. The 7057 simply sees those made by default being the updated build with the additional feature added in.

Hey

This is not working on my Windows 7, build number above 7057

At least, I can not find the folder.

Kind regards,

You need to add the folder yourself.

Once I managed to get the right copy of one image to fill the screen instead of seeing it reduced to one corner the 7000 build here has a new logon screen where LogonStudio Vista was given the toss!

To get things working you first have to verify things like the correct entry in the registy and that the intended folder exists. Here I overwrote the jpg selected a few times to finally see the new look. "new look?" !!!!



That's what happens when you log onto Prey!

After (I must say) MUCH trial and error; here it is; kinda plain being blue but anything is better than that stupid default 7057 screen.

Thanks to all who worked on this!

Looks good Ted, I am using that Cat pic as well, if any one wants it you can use my log on screen, just open the Zip and put the folder in the Windows folder and it will make all the necessary folders.
