  • Boot screen image

    Does anyone have a 640x480, 16-bit bitmap image that I can use to replace the Windows XP boot screen? I've been looking on the web but can't find anything decent in those dimensions. I'd like something Mame-related, but anything simple and non-Windows-specific will suffice. It needs to be displayed on an arcade monitor so it can't be too fancy or it will look like shit.

      I have tried that program but it causes my PC to crash every time it boots. I tried changing the boot screens but nothing worked, so I gave up trying.

                  Thanks, I have replaced the Windows XP boot screen with your MAME boot screen, it looks great!
