Splash images for WACUP
« on: January 04, 2019, 04:52:07 AM »
I've been doing some splash screens to use with WACUP and give it a little more flavour. Feel free to download and use on your WACUP!

To replace your splash screen just put any of these files on your WACUP data folder (something like C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\WACUP) and rename it to splash.png.


Also, if you want to do some splash screens yourself, I'm uploading -on the next post- a transparent PNG you can use (a cut from the original with "Winamp" reconstructed from my files + WACUP label). Don't forget to post back here! Any ideas are welcome!

Transparent PNGs ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

EDIT: Re-uploaded a better version (shinning eyes! can you see it??) + some variants:
1. With the "rocks" going down to the very bottom (IDK why I thought you guys would use a dark bottom)
2. One forming a peak so the right side stays clear
3. Vertical one, with fading rock so it blends nicely
4. Another vertical, but with the rocks not fading, leaving the llama on an Avatar-like floating rock XD

Enjoy.

Cool.. I used the blank one to make my own.  BTW, You can use Irfanview to combine images.  Load the background image you want and size it accordingly.  Then, click on Edit -> Insert Overlay/Watermark Image and pick the blank.png and set the Transparency to 0% if you want to completely replace the background. 

Thought I might have had to install some other graphics program to use layers or combine the images.

Cool! I like how the middle one breaks the typical horizontal composition.

The middle one isn't intended for use as a splash. I just included it so you can see the whole picture.

Well, out of curiosity I tried it.
I see what you mean. It works much better than I expected !
I will add the PNG to the post above

Edit, no I won't, my access has expired so it goes here.
I did an 8bit version as it is a limited colour range, and does not suffer enough to notice (especially as it is not up for long)

Here's the one I did.  I did it more or less just to see if I could.

Cool, I love to see how you guys engaged with it -I wasn't expecting it TBH-.
So, I've prepared a set of better PNGs for you to use on your next try-outs. I'll try to add it to the 2nd post (or get DrO to do it for me), these will be better cutted llamas (I've just noticed the llama has a softly shining eyes -only noticeable at 200%-, so I tried to keep that), more soft and with 3 variants, including a vertical one.

In the meantime, here's a minimalist one for the collection ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
