this probably doesnt belong here, but it would be great to have a mediaportal bootup screen instead of the windows one.



also is there any way to adjust the shell to media portal instead of

explorer.exe ?

    "Bootskinfree" from Stardock it is Freeware.

    i'm no good at visual things, i put this out there perhaps to spark someone's intrest enough for them to make it, i'm personally horrible at these types of things.

    I might do it if I get time. Does anyone have a copy of the MP logo at a decent res. (Samsonite ?)
    Also, you won't really be able to set MP as your shell, it's just not designed to be one. Why not just add it to your startup folder and default it to fullscreen?

    ShiftClick's logo can be downloaded from here:

    Looking forward to see the results :)

    I made a screenshot of MP and set it as the desktop wallpaper. If there wasn´t the splash screen, you wouldn´t realize the start of MP. The taskbar is moved out of the desktop. The only thing you could see it is the date and time. But you won´t really see it. ;)

    If there´s a boot screen, please post it, I really want to delete this myHTPC screen, since this ugly piece of alpha software was released here in germany for 50,-€... :evil:

    And regarding your question about the shell replacement:


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "Shell"="C:\Program Files\Team Mediaportal\Mediaportal.exe"
