Start up screens

  • To edit the startup movie... go to exe\freelancer.ini. The particular section of interest is the [Startup] section.


    [Startup]
    movie_file = movies\MGS_Logo_Final.wmv
    movie_file = movies\DA_Logo_Final.wmv
    movie_file = movies\FL_Intro.wmv


    If you wish to modify your startup video simply change the entry as such....


    [Startup]
    movie_file = movies\MGS_Logo_Final.wmv
    movie_file = movies\DA_Logo_Final.wmv
    movie_file = movies\FL_Intro.wmv
    movie_file = movies\<insertcustommoviename>.wmv


    Now, if you want to modify your startup splash screen you need to go to Data\Interface\Intro\Images. The two particular files of interest are... startupscreen.tga and startupscreen_1280.tga. One important thing to note. THESE FILES HAVE AN ALPHA LAYER! Ensure whatever image you are adding has one too.


    If you have photoshop and want to add an alpha layer to your startup image, merely click on the "Channels" tab, click on the "add channel" icon at the bottom of the channel list menu and name it Alpha when you do so, it will appear black. Make this entire channel white.


    I hope this helps, and good luck.
