how to add a custom loading screen for every game that you have..

at some point we have all wanted a custom loading screen..
so when i saw the plugin for this i thought..ok
but one only!  common relay......

OK so this was trial an error,  but i found out how to

thanks to "Keilmillerjr's" plugin

#1 steps..  goto "sticky" modules and plugin gallery
download "fadetogame plugin"

#2 put in "plugins" folder

#3 open AM & "tab" "plugin" enable plugin.nut ,,save & exit

#4 goto "plugins folder" now edit "plugin.nut ,, edit this line to....

shade = fe.add_artwork("title", 0, 0, fe.layout.width, fe.layout.height); 

#5 goto "scraper" folder add new folder with system name ie: snes
in this folder add , "newfolder" > title

#6 in the new folder "snes > title" add your custum loading screen pic
and name it just like you would for snaps or videos  ie: Contra III - The Alien Wars.png

done, now when you start game it will show your custom loading screen for that game...

notes: in the plugin menu u can change the start time,,and exit time
now u need to set this to your prefrence

Looks great! We can incorporate this feature to the plugin as optional and fade after loading screen is shown for a specific time.?

I use this plugin in AM PC, but when I start the game I get a black screen, and there is no image of the game.
Can you explain more about the plugin?

That’s exactly what the plugin is supposed to do.

Jedione list details on how to slightly modify the plugin to show custom loading screens.

did the changes and made the folders + png but I get black screen only :-\

edit:
Works now! (looks strange ... used a logo png and is stretched and no colour on the logo is all black)
Seems that copy/paste the line provided in this topic over the one in the *.nut file did the job..... weird...
