    Ok, I made a 4 bit (16 colors) bmp, 640x480. I am not sure what more is needed but take a look at it and let me know what you think.

    On all of the pages about this there where several warnings from ppl that had crached their systems... use it at your own risk ;)

    looks really nice and stylish samsonite, but i think the "loading"-text should have a bold font weight, so it is also readable on normal tv sets.

    Indeed looks cool, as maniac's mentioned, maybe some logos.
    I save the bootscreen.bmp to my pc, but it apears to be 8bit, not the requested 4bit. Can you verify ?

    Thanks Eric
