Windows 7: How to change boot animation in Windows 7

@RBCC
If you have questions about SP1 then either search Google, search this forum, or start a new thread. This thread is about changing the boot animation in Windows 7 and at least slightly related things. Slipstreaming is not related.


A brief update on my progress. I have have found all the hacks and done my initial testing. I am working through the following problems:
  • The Windows Recovery issue that happens to a random set of people in Alpha 9
  • Winresume:
    • My testing might be wrong because its in a VM and those don't fully support hibernation but here goes:
    • 32-bit original/SP1: Worked the first time (original), although I had a different issue which caused no messages to show up. After that it only got to showing the messages and doesn't show the animation, and freezes.
    • 64-bit original/SP1: after animation, black screen, and freeze
I still need to test long copyright notices in all (32/64 RTM/SP1) otherwise the tests above include all features in the program.

Are you working on the Background? Also changing of fonts in copyright? Or is that all but forgotten? RBCC

READ THE THREAD or the emails I send you personally! Below are quotes that I have said before, some directed at you when you previously ask similar questions. We are working on this, but this is not our job, so it doesn't get priority. If you need something like this done on your schedule, then hire programmers. You are already on my email list, I will inform you of major updates and major updates will be posted here. I even regularly post minor updates to my progress here (in fact two entries above I have some things I have been working on). If you would like me to start submitting progress reports and time-sheets to you I will require a paycheck.

Thaimin, i tried again using YOUR animation.bmp and i saved it in photoshop as 24 bit BMP and loaded it and the animation IS NOT curropt, like it was a while ago.

here is my .bs7 file with all my settings so you can see.

hopefully it helps!

Oh yeah, that was fixed awhile ago. I made the system much more robust. The issue that you had before was the file had a DPI specified (whereas most files don't have any DPI). I corrected that among many others.

oh ok, i thought it was still being worked on,

and what is DPI?

like dots per inch?

and did you correct the actual file, or did you make your app adjust those settings automagically?
