Kite‘s Boot Logo

Post by Phiro13 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:49 am

Hello,
does anyone know if the Kite Boot Logo can be setup in how long it appears? It fades direct into my splashscreen and this doesn‘t look really nice...
Or is the Logo image stored in any folder of the pie? Then I would use it as splashscreen and it would look even nicer.

Hi, if you make an issue on the github page (https://github.com/kiteretro/Circuit-Sword/issues), I can look to add this as a configurable option in the future (no promises on when i'll get to implement it, but at least it'll then be tracked as an issue and you'll get updates as it gets worked on).

Include the option to have the file, I'll have to make one (as that splash screen is actually generated in code rather than being an image file available to just place!). The alternative would be to set your boot splash to something 'simple' (maybe a retro pattern or something that kinda meshes well with the splash screen).

Perfect! I added an issue on github. It just would be more seamless and clean. My skills and software knowledge aren't enough to create this image, otherwise I already had tried myself, but maybe someone on the forums would like to also have this image and has better experience and creates one.

Possibly you can take a capture of it when it is on screen, or if you have a hdmi capture device grab a video and screen cap the segment with the image.

Thanks, I'll get to it at some point :)

You can do it on the Pi itself.. the easiest way would be:

1. git clone https://github.com/kiteretro/dispmanx2ppm
2. cd dispmanx2ppm
3. chmod +x dispmanx2ppm
4. sudo service cs-hud restart
5. ./dispmanx2ppm

You'll need to do step #5 as soon as the logo appears on screen, so timing may be important! This will leave you with out.ppm, which Photoshop does open, otherwise you might have to find some other app to open it..

There may be better screen capture software available, but i wrote that one so it's all that i know ;)
